Happy Friday, and where I live: it’s a long weekend!

Are you ready? I’m ready! Here we go…

» Gunther Holtorf’s 23 Year Road Trip

Gunther Holtorf's 23 Year Road Trip

“Back in 1989, as the Berlin Wall fell, Gunther Holtorf and his wife Christine set out on what was meant to be an 18-month tour of Africa in their Mercedes Benz G Wagon. Now, with more than 800,000km (500,000 miles) on the clock, Gunther is still going.”
This is a great little mini-documentary. Great story. This is the kind of thing I’d like to try when I get to be that age.

A year through my window

“An entire year, 1 driver, 1 van, plenty of hitchhikers, 1 huge country, 7 states, more than 30 thousand kilometers, 1 camera and a lot of fun.”
Beautiful.

» Alaa Wardi – Risala Ela…

Alaa Wardi - Risala Ela...

“The twelve of us playing together, me and my twin brothers, I’m the one in the center with the baby guitar 🙂 it was good to see all the Wardis back together again.”
Joke! It’s all the same guy. Alaa Wardi has been making a bit of a name for himself in the middle east. Guy’s got talent, no question.

Bottled History

“Ray Gascoigne has been around boats his whole life, as a shipwright, a merchant sailor, and now as a ship builder on the smallest dry dock there is: a bottle.”
Talk about an obscure art form. I find these little documentaries fascinating.

Bonus Video:

» Tobias Hutzler – BALANCE

Tobias Hutzler - BALANCE

“‘Balance’ is a short film by photographer/director Tobias Hutzler, inspired by Rigolo Swiss Nouveau Cirque artist Maedir Eugster.”
It’s mesmerizing. I like.

Have a great Friday, and a great (hopefully long) weekend.
