After I quit my job last year, I packed a bag, grabbed my camera and bought a one way ticket to London. 17 countries later, I compiled this time lapse of the many amazing places I came across.

Original Music: "Places and Faces" by Metaphysika Sounds. William Lam (Metaphysika Sounds) is an extremely talented musical composer whose range is barely touched in this composition he wrote specifically for the video. He's also my little brother. If you want to commission William to write music, email him at MetaphysikaSounds[at]gmail.com.

Special thanks to Dan Hirons, Joey Seich and Carol Trieu for all your help, support and patience.

To all my fellow travelers whose company made each step of the way all the more memorable and unique, I want you to know that however short an appearance you made in the video, you've left an impact far greater and long-lasting than the few seconds that each city appeared in the video.

To my family, thank you for bearing with me and worrying about my health and safety with every dodgy bus ride and new country I found myself in each day.
