Photographer travels to 36 countries in 600 days: this is the enthralling video he created about it

Remember that time you told yourself, ’one day I’m going to travel the world,’ but never did? Behold, the video that will make you so jelly, you’re going to start packing as soon as possible! Photographer Alex Chacon travelled through 36 countries in 600 days, logging in an unbelievable 202, 690 km using five different motorcycles. Using a GoPro and a monopod attached to it, he captured a 360 panorama selfie of his entire trip.

If you’re quietly rotting away in an office cubicle you despicably hate, don’t watch this video, you’ll feel really, really terrible all of a sudden.

UPDATE: Here’s an excerpt from our exclusive interview with Alex!

A lot of us want to know, how were you able to fund the trip? Was it solely on the money you saved after selling all your possessions?

I sold everything I had after graduating college with no debt, including my car, TV, clothes, and gaming console. I would camp everywhere, eat canned food, and only spend money on essentials. I would couchsurf all around the world and people would meet me and give me food, or a place to stay at night.

What are some of the memorable experiences of this epic adventure, so far?

Northern Lights in Alaska, Uyuni Salt Flat in Bolivia, Iguazu Falls in Brazil, Himalayas and driving to Leh from Manali.
