This around-the-world selfie took 3 years to make

global selfie

Wherever you go, there you are.

If social media is really just a tool for advertising how enviable your life is, then globetrotter Alex Chacon has truly raised the bar with this 360-degree video selfie, edited together from three years of travels. Even hermits and homebodies will have to cop to their jealousy—or latent wanderlust.

Chacon, who has traversed some 200,000 kilometers by motorcycle, passes through dozens of countries in dizzying sequence, making friends everywhere. From city to desert to jungle to ocean, there’s nowhere his trusty GoPro-on-a-stick can’t follow, so sit back and enjoy the trip:    

Inspired yet? Then chuck your computer out the window and let’s hit the road together. Just promise you won’t get all Kerouac about it.
