All the words I know

“In this box are all the words I know. . . Most of them you will never need, some you will use constantly, but with them you may ask all the questions which have never been answered and answer all the questions which have never been asked. All the great books of the past and all the ones yet to come are made with these words. With them there is no obstacle you cannot overcome. All you must learn to do is to use them well and in the right places.”

— from Phantom Tollbooth by Justin Juster

Guy walks across America

Mike walks across America, coast to coast, over the course of two weeks, occasionally stopping to snap some shots with a Canon 5D, in this really well-done Levi’s-branded time-lapse viral.

The trip began June 17 in New York and ended July 1 in San Francisco. For the actual photography, the crew used a Canon 5D.

Singing For Supper

Three young men walk across Britain without any money, camp out and rely on the kindness of strangers to survive.

Calling themselves “singing adventurers”, they have taken three major trips in the past three years, sleeping wherever they can and foraging for food. They sing three-part folk songs, ancient and modern, wherever they are welcomed.

They “busk in heaving towns, chant in crumbling chapels, and get feet tapping in many a-pub across the land.”
