As much as we love traveling the world, who has the vacation time, really? Well, San Francisco-based photographer Kien Lam did, and made an incredible 5-minute video that zooms through his 343-day tour of 17 countries, including Morocco, Argentina, Thailand, and France.
During his travels, Lam boarded 19 planes, 58 buses, and 18 boats, while snapping 6,237 photos -- available on his photography page here -- which he raced through to compose the video. Lam even worked on the soundtrack himself, in a collaboration with his also-talented brother. So hit play, kick back, and witness what nearly a year of globetrotting looks like in less time than it takes to drink a cup of coffee.
