Man travels the world and shoots bits of footage at each place, and weaves it together into three gorgeous short films.

Move. Learn. Eat.

Watch all three on his Vimeo page.

In the last week I have... held a sloth, swam with pink dolphins, hiked to a remote community in the middle of the jungle, been attacked by a monkey, ate tree grubs topped with a sauce made of spicy ants, watched wild parrots, had an anaconda wrapped around my neck, tasted mambe (coca leaves ground up), and visited three countries in a single day (Peru, Colombia, and Brazil). It's experiences like this that remind me why Travel is my priority... why I don't own a car, always opt for the tiny studio apartments, why I don't own a new phone. For me, it's all about collecting experiences, not things.

Your description made me ache to be a backpacker again.  To be a nomad wandering the vast world, living the experiences of humanity.

Favorite part about living in South America?  Hard to say but the fresh, delicious ceviche is up there at the top

Story
Tagline
"When a great adventure is offered, you do not refuse it." -- Amelia Earhart
Introduction

Growing up in typical small town USA, I would sit for hours and just dream up new plans and new ideas.  

Somewhere along the line I finally made the switch, from dreaming to doing, and for the last 4 years I have been traveling the world, living in South America, and having incredible experiences that top any dreams I might have had as a kid back home. 

I keep a very food focused record of my travel adventures on my site, Global Gastros, co-run with my partner Chef Jaime Torregrosa.  When I'm not eating my way around the world, I also work as a Wordpress website designer through my business - Finding Website Bliss.
