How To Get Inspired: Move. Eat. Learn.

2002-06-01 morocco (16)

[twitter]The world is a big place. You’re just a small piece of it. If you want to make your life better, if you want to enrich yourself you need to explore. I’ve been to just 14 countries a number that’s good but not great. A friend of mine is trying to get to 60 countries before she’s 60 and this week, at 43, said “Hola” to Costa Rica and number 40.

Need a push to be inspired to change things up, take a challenge and move outside your usual all-inclusive or flight to Vegas? Watch this:

Three friends spent forty-four days touring eleven countries and travelling thirty-eight thousand miles to shoot a few videos of inspiration. Andrew Lees is the start of the short films, Rick Mereki and Tim White were on the crew while the music is by Kelsey James.

Move is just one in a series of videos made by the crew as commissioned by STA Travel Australia.

Eating the same thing for dinner tonight? Don’t know how to cook, bake or fry? Stuck with a boring palate that knows nothing more than a few foods?

Look down the multicultural aisle of your grocery store, don’t skip it. Follow someone who speaks another language or has a different colour skin. Watch where they go in the aisle, see what they pick up and then ask them how to cook it.

Then go home, and eat.

Are you stuck in a rut? Have the same hobbies and do the same things for entertainment? There’s a world of fun out there for you, all you have to do is learn.
