Iceland

from Ugmonk

“Iceland is magical! There’s no other way to describe it.

My wife and I recently took a trip to Iceland and explored some incredible spots along the southern coast and around Reykjavik.

I put together a little video to recap some of our trip, but nothing compares to experiencing it in person.”

Shot on my Olympus EM-10 and 12-40 f2.8 lens. (A couple shots on iPhone 5s)

The Longest Way 1.0 – walk through China and grow a beard!

In 2008, I walked through China – one year, more than 4500km. All the while, I let my hair and my beard grow. This is the resulting video.

Additional info:
– I never finished my original goal of walking to Germany. Instead, I walked for a year and roughly 4500km, passed the Gobi desert, and then decided to stop walking for now.
– All of the distance from Beijing to Ürümqi was completed solely on foot, straight good old walking. There are instances where you can see me in the video sitting on a plane or riding a boat, but those are during breaks I had to take from walking, either to sort out bureaucracy issues or to take care of some personal things.
– I had been planning this trip for over a year before I even started, and getting as far as I got was an experience for which I am very grateful.
– Obtaining the necessary visa for a trip like this was not very easy, hence I had to go back to Beijing a few times to resolve some issues.
– This is not a strict “1 pic a day” video, because I wanted to make it a bit more alive by adding some additional movement. Sometimes during the film you would follow me turn around, or something would happen in the background. I tried to capture these moments to make the video more interesting.

– The core of this project is in actually my blog where I have posted my extensive travel diary, starting from day 1 (Nov 9th 2007) and describing every single day until the end one year later.
