Three Canadian Chefs travel to 10 countries across Asia in search for the most traditional regional dishes around. While they were at it, they learnt that food brings people and cultures together. Because of their quest they had met the most amazing people, had the most amazing adventures and experienced the cultures first hand which the average backpacker rarely sees.
Without Borders has now been turned in to a 13 part television series airing world wide.
This is a video that we produced for the Road Junkey film festival in Berlin taking place May 2010
Music by our friends in London-Bibelots

Taj Mahal is one of the most beautiful and romantic monuments on earth, and to us especially so, since Frank just proposed to Jen in front of the Taj! (Watch episode 9 for that)
There is a stupid rule at the Taj Mahal where video is prohibited beyond the first viewing platform (where you see Jen talking on the bench), and don't even think about bringing in a tripod or monopod - they search everything at the gate. So as a result, most non-broadcast footage of the Taj Mahal upclose is shaky, low quality cell phone stuff. Well, we are thankful for our DSLR, which looks like a still camera but also takes full 1080p HD video! We even managed a rare HD movie inside the Taj Mahal itself! Certain shots are stablized and smoothed in software for almost the tripod look. Enjoy!
Technical notes: Shot in 1080p HD with a Canon 60D camera, handheld. Photos are mostly HDR. Music credits: "Here With Me" and "Living Life Over" by ATB.

After I quit my job last year, I packed a bag, grabbed my camera and bought a one way ticket to London. 17 countries later, I compiled this time lapse of the many amazing places I came across.

Special thanks to Dan Hirons, Joey Seich and Carol Trieu for all your help, support and patience.
To all my fellow travelers whose company made each step of the way all the more memorable and unique, I want you to know that however short an appearance you made in the video, you've left an impact far greater and long-lasting than the few seconds that each city appeared in the video.
To my family, thank you for bearing with me and worrying about my health and safety with every dodgy bus ride and new country I found myself in each day.
