My epic year-long personal video project is complete. Throughout 2014 I filmed one second of video every day. The result is the strange video below. If you were part of my life in 2014 there is a strong chance that you will be in here somewhere. Thanks to everyone for making 2014 a life changing year!

If you are interested, here is the obligatory blog post about the project. http://kaifdownhere.blogspot.com/2014/12/2014-one-second-every-day.html�

For those that are interested in some of the geeky aspects of the road trip, this post is for you.
After an epic 4595km trip around the country, the road trip has finally come to an end. It's been a fantastic journey and one that we will remember for the rest of our lives. However, as covered in some of the posts, things d...

Thanks +Adam Barnett​! Putting yourself way out of your comfort zone is scary at first, but it feels quite liberating when you realise that you are more adept to change than you think.

Some thoughts and photos on Johannesburg I posted up the road trip blog.
It's 2am and I'm laying in bed. Outside the rain beats against the window. Then a flash of lightning quickly followed by roaring thunder. The lightning storms in Jo'burg are a magnificent sight, they are intense and are usual...
