As if you needed a catalyst to send your mind spinning into the netherworlds of travel fantasy. Aren’t Fridays for wanderlusting? I mean, weekends are great and all, but if you’re like me, they’re more yardwork and lazing than they are excitement and adventure. What we really need to set us free is a good dose of imagination generation.
If you’re like me, and this is precisely what you need, set your DVR to record Discovery’s “Human Planet” series. If you’re a little more strapped for time and you need a quick fix, or even if you need a taste to get you fully convinced, check out the clips on the Human Planet site.
From Mongols who hunt with eagles, to New Guineas who live in trees, these episodes will take you from the ruins of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, to the western highlands of Papua New Guinea. For all that we marvel at nature, both animate and inanimate, the human species is even more than amazing, it is miraculous.
I’ve added at least 8 more dream-locations just thanks to the few hours I’ve spent watching these specials. The cinematography captures the experiences in ways I’ve never known video to do, so here’s just a sample of what you’ll see.
Thanks for wanderlusting with us.
