One Year of Backpacking All Around the World In Just Five Minutes

Gizmodo reader Kien Lam just sent me this beautiful video that has made me extremely jealous: a time lapse video of his year backpacking all around the world. 343 days, 17 countries over five continents reduced to just five minutes.

Hi Jesus,

Last year, I backpacked around the world and made a video to capture the journey. As 2012 begins, I want to share it with people.

I'm always watching the cool videos you and Giz puts up under the Watch This category. I hope this is something that might be interesting to you.

Each of the scene in the video is approximately 2 second and is comprised of between 40-60 shots on average. All together it is over 6200 shots and spans 5 continents.

What a beautiful trip. [Thanks Kien!]

How much money would it cost to backpack around the world for upwards of 343 days? I've always thought of doing it but after seeing this I really want to do it.
