Around the World in One Minute

These three guys boarded 18 flights and journeyed 38 thousand miles in their 44-day trip through 11 countries. I am infinitely jealous.

Independent filmmaker Rick Mereki, his director of photography Tim White, and actor Andrew Lees captured almost a terabyte of footage during their trip. They created three short films, one of which is called Move. It’ll take you around the world in one quick minute.

See the other two films, Eat and Learn after the jump.


Ridiculous complaints made by holiday makers


Oh how I could dig a holiday right now. A palm-fringed tropical island would be sublime, a chalet in the mountains with a wood burning fire place would be delightful, a suite at Claridges would be very special indeed. Heck, who am I kidding? A tent on the bank of the Breede would be perfect (and realistic). Alas there’s no holiday in sight for poor little moi, but at least I can take solace in the fact that some people went on holiday and didn’t have a good time. Here are some absurd complaints made by vacationing fools:

  • A tourist at a top African game lodge overlooking a waterhole, who spotted a visibly aroused elephant, complained that the sight of this rampant beast ruined his honeymoon by making him feel “inadequate”.
  • “No-one told us there would be fish in the sea. The children were startled.”
  • “My fiancĂ© and I booked a twin-bedded room but we were placed in a double-bedded room. We now hold you responsible for the fact that I find myself pregnant. This would not have happened if you had put us in the room that we booked.”
  • “I was bitten by a mosquito – no-one said they could bite.”
  • “On my holiday to Goa in India, I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don’t like spicy food at all.”
