2 Seconds Every Day – Southeast Asia Trip

2 Seconds Every Day – Southeast Asia Trip

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to backpack for an extended period of time, look no further. Before the trip, I decided to take a video every day and then clip 2 seconds of each day together. It shows the variety of things that you get up to while traveling. Each day brings something new and exciting. Many days, I had several videos and had a hard time choosing which ones would be in the video. Without further adieu, here are four and a half months of travel squeezed down to just under 5 minutes.
