In 2008, I walked through China - 1 year, 4500km. I let my hair and my beard grow. This is the resulting video. Add me on FB: ▶ https://facebook.com/crehage on TW: ▶ https://twitter.com/crehage or drop by on my site: ▶ http://www.crehage.com
▶ I never finished my original goal of walking to Germany. Instead, I walked for a year and roughly 4500km, passed the Gobi desert, and then decided to stop walking for now.
▶ All of the distance from Beijing to Ürümqi was completed solely on foot, straight good old walking. There are instances where you can see me in the video sitting on a plane or riding a boat, but those are during breaks I had to take from walking, either to sort out bureaucracy issues or to take care of some personal things.
▶ I had been planning this trip for over a year before I even started, and getting as far as I got was an experience for which I am very grateful.
▶ Obtaining the necessary visa for a trip like this was not very easy, hence I had to go back to Beijing a few times to resolve some issues.
▶ This is not a strict "1 pic a day" video, because I wanted to make it a bit more alive by adding some additional movement. Sometimes during the film you would follow me turn around, or something would happen in the background. I tried to capture these moments to make the video more interesting.
▶ If you liked the music I used in this video, get it here: The Kingpins - "L'Aventurier" http://bit.ly/RXOMaz Zhu Fengbo - "Olive Tree" http://bit.ly/UDsHT7
▶ The core of this project is in actually my blog where I have posted my extensive travel diary, starting from day 1 (Nov 9th 2007) and describing every single day until the end one year later.

When we pack it up this season and trek some 10,000 kilometers across the Pacific into the tropic heat of Thailand (and the chaos of Bangkok), the only thing we’ve come to expect—at the very least—is the unexpected.
Young love chases adventure through a visual feast of sprawling night markets and crammed nightclubs where no one knows your name. In another instant, it’s the bliss of desolate beaches, exotic jungles, cheap rum, and a sky lit up by fireworks miles away from anywhere.
“Nowhere to go but everywhere…”
Coming out in early 2013, Salazar knits together another beautiful piece for us with a touch of the surreal, and harmonized with original sounds from Brasstronaut. With the help of a mysterious little machine, two kids come crashing into an unfamiliar paradise of unknown roads, coves, and coastlines. All at the twist of a knob and the press of a button. It all began with an innocent hope to escape the everyday. But things are becoming stranger and stranger…
Short film coming early 2013.
