Rick Mereki Encourages Us To Move, Learn and Eat.

In 2008, “Dacing Matt” Harding became a YouTube sensation with his videos showcasing both his arguable dancing abilities and his amazing travels. His first video was posted in 2005 as a result from his 6 month, 17 country backpacking trip as a departure from his game developer desk job. Currently his video has 39 million views and has sparked plenty of copycats.

Now, 2011 brings us Rick Mereki, who is an Australian filmmaker commissioned by the student travel agency STA Australia, has created a series of three one minute long videos in his campaign “Move, Learn and Eat.” Mereki’s videos, with the help of his buddies Tim White and Andrew Lees, will have you itching with the travel bug before the end of the first clip.

Filmed in 11 countries over a span of 6 weeks, these videos are sure to inspire anyone to do as the title suggests – move, learn and eat.

The South of France and Paris Part 2

…And we’re back to talk more about my latest trip to the South of France! Read Part 1 if you missed it!

Finally, another rarely visited area by non-French folk is a little treat called the Viduct des Arts. This was my first visit here, and it was joyous, including the walk upstairs on the Promenade Plantee! To get here, go to Metro Bastille.
