In 2003 Matt Harding (originally from Connecticut) quit his job in Brisbane, Australia and spent his entire savings traveling the world for 14 months. He started a site to keep contact with his family and filmed a video of himself in 42 countries doing a silly dance in front of some pretty awesome sights. Often -- he's got some local help. This is joyous. I hope it makes your day. Thanks Matt -- wherever the hell you are! Here's his site. Below is his video.
