FINALLY! I’ve been hard at work processing my photos from our epic trip to France for quite awhile now, and I’ve resisted the very strong urge to post some of the photos on this blog along the way because I’ve had this video project in mind for a long time and wanted it to be the first thing I shared.
Earlier this year I happened across two absolutely amazing travel videos made by the very talented Mike Matas–one from his trip to Morocco & Spain and the other from a trip through India. These videos absolutely blew me away. Waves of images and sounds washed and broke over me. It was like he was downloading his experiences directly into my brain, and I was experiencing them as if they were my own memories. In short, I was moved, and I immediately decided that I would try to document our trip to France in the same beautiful way. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and I hope Mike agrees.
When I watch this video, I feel like I’m living our amazing trip all over again. I hope you can sense some of the magic too.
And now, without further ado, please enjoy 2,388 of my vacation photos in just over three minutes! (Aren’t you glad I didn’t invite you over for an old-fashioned show-and-tell slideshow??)
