Video: Exploring the Ancient Silk Road

There is no better way to explore a region of the world than by traveling overland. In this video, we join just such a journey following the historic Silk Road, which once opened trade routes between Asia and Europe. In this case, filmmaker Nicolas Bori spent 120 days traveling 18,000 km (11,185 miles) through China, Mongolia, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, the Caspian sea, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey. What he found along the way was stunning landscapes, interesting people, and endless adventure. Check it out in his beautiful video below.

Video: Turkey in Timelapse

Sitting at the juncture of three continents, Turkey is a country that is rich in history and culture. This video serves as a lovely travelogue of that nation, sharing images of the people and places that make it such a special place. Intermixed with those shots are some amazing timelapse scenes that are as beautiful as any we have seen. This excellent five-minute video seems like a wonderful way to end the week. Enjoy!
