The Longest Way 1.0 - walk through China and grow a beard! - a photo every day timelapse

Ist jetzt schon ein wenig älter, ok, aber solche Geschichten finde ich total interessant! Darüber hinaus ist das ganze Filmchen auch noch super gemacht, deshalb muss es hier einfach rein - Christoph Rehage auf seinem langen Marsch 8-)

Mehr Infos, Videos,... hat Christoph in seinem Blog zusammengestellt...
"In 2008, I walked through China - one year, more than 4500km. All the while, I let my hair and my beard grow. This is the resulting video. Add me on FB: Or drop by on my blog:"

"Additional info:
- I never finished my original goal of walking to Germany. Instead, I walked for a year and roughly 4500km, passed the Gobi desert, and then decided to stop walking for now.
- All of the distance from Beijing to Ürümqi was completed solely on foot, straight good old walking. There are instances where you can see me in the video sitting on a plane or riding a boat, but those are during breaks I had to take from walking, either to sort out bureaucracy issues or to take care of some personal things.
- I had been planning this trip for over a year before I even started, and getting as far as I got was an experience for which I am very grateful.
- Obtaining the necessary visa for a trip like this was not very easy, hence I had to go back to Beijing a few times to resolve some issues.
- This is not a strict "1 pic a day" video, because I wanted to make it a bit more alive by adding some additional movement. Sometimes during the film you would follow me turn around, or something would happen in the background. I tried to capture these moments to make the video more interesting.
- If you liked the music I used in this video, get it here:
The Kingpins - "L'Aventurier"
Zhu Fengbo - "Olive Tree"
- The core of this project is in actually my blog where I have posted my extensive travel diary, starting from day 1 (Nov 9th 2007) and describing every single day until the end one year later.
