Friday Afternoon Palate Cleanser – "Around the World in 80 Seconds"

Creative types are always going places looking for just one more thing to sink their fingers into up to their knuckles. This is a good thing – it gives us some of the most interesting and thought-provoking pieces of travel-related entertainment that we can find online.

The following video was filmed and directed by two French fellows, Romain Pergeaux and Alex Profit, who took a round-the-world trip last year to film their project.

From their YouTube site:

A project done in only 3 weeks. The making of the video, pictures and an interview of Alex Profit can be seen at www.tourdumonde80.fr. Our tour included stops in London – Cairo – Mumbay – Hong Kong – Tokyo – San Francisco – New York – London. This route is a tribute to the famous Jules Verne’s book “Le tour du monde en 80 jours”.
