Is there a better way to see a country than by bicycle? A Belgian expat and cycling enthusiast named Carl, now relocated to Germany, just wrapped up an 80-day trip through all 16 of Germany's states. He filmed his journey and compressed those 80 days down into 80 seconds:
I have to believe that not all of us are happy with just the 80 seconds of eye candy. I can't be the only one who is envious of Carl's journey and would like to see more.
The good news is, Carl--who is fluent in German and goes by the handle "Ein Belg," slang for "a Belgian"--is in fact turning his journey into a documentary. In the trailer below we get to see what we don't in the teaser above, which is the actual interactions Carl got to have while traveling:
Carl has released the two videos above in hopes of gaining the attention of a German production company. If any of you have a hookup, please forward this along!
