Move, Learn, Eat... Live

I am writing this from New York, where I've been for more than a week now, so it might sound a little bit contradictory of me to say that I miss traveling. While I love New York and am really enjoying working and playing here, when I talk about traveling, I mean the kind of traveling where each day I am confronted with 360 degrees of options and experiences, where the question 'what next?' is both a riddle I am trying to solve and a challenge to the universe. NYC is great but it isn't mysterious to me. I understand and fit in quite well here.

When I say I miss traveling, I mean that I miss the feeling I used to get when I traversed Asia with no real direction. Each moment taught me something about the world and myself, filling my lungs, my stomach, my head and my heart with all the emotion and knowledge I could handle. Living in the Middle East has given much of that but I am growing comfortable with it now.

The following three videos were created by three guys in 44 days, across 11 countries, who then created these 3 ambitious linear concepts based on movement, learning and food ....into 3 beautiful and hopefully compelling short films.

All I can say is that they made me miss traveling...
