Over the past month or so, I watched some truly spectacular Videos – thanks to Netflix. The first one was Michael Palin’s ‘Pole to Pole’ where he chooses the 30 degree latitude to travel from the North Pole (yes, he stands on the pole) to the South Pole.
BBC’s ‘Wild China’ – a six part television series is truly out of the world. The visuals are breathtaking and I must say that they are much better than any HD I have seen. The first part of the series gives insight into the agricultural system in China and how the people have made farming possible in the slopes of the steep hills there.
Yesterday, I saw ‘The Alps’ on IMAX produced the department of tourism of Switzerland. Some glorious shots of Mr. Eiger – this is an out-of-the-world visual treat making me (all, I guess) envy those who live there. Sort of dreamland, where you are with nature and live – how blessed.
Watching these videos make my workouts less boring. This is a great way to keep up the work outs. Of course, my work out is mostly on the bike which makes no noise at all. Running on a treadmill might be different and you would want to have some headphones and video monitor handy.
