Thanks to Instagram and Facebook, we now live in a world where travel envy and “wish I was there” syndrome is ubiquitous. With each click, it becomes easier and easier to forget that every place on earth (yes, even your little hometown) would be considered exotic by someone, somewhere. We wrap ourselves so fully up in the idea of leaving, that often we never truly explore and enjoy the places where we spend most of our lives. This short film by Sebastian Linda reminds us that it isn’t always necessary to buy a plane ticket to experience something new. He advocates a novel idea, living at home in the same way we travel. The film’s ending quote says it best;
In our everyday life we seem to be unaware of new experiences. But probably, it is just a question of perspective. One step aside and you might discover something unexpected. It is up to us to hurl ourselves into new adventure. Seeing the small things big and the big things small. Let’s go out now. The adventure is waiting in front of your door. As long as you live.
