This mesmerizing timelapse video follows Christoph Rehage as he walks 4,500 km across China over the course of a year…and grows the mop of hair and impressive beard to prove it. 

Today is the “first day back” for many of us whose vacations ended with Labor Day weekend, so the video (which I discovered via the wonderful Mighty Girl) hits me as the perfect brain break platform for thinking about how journeys, trips, treks, or even “stay-cations” change us.

Take a watch, and let us know if you’ve ever felt transformed by travel, seen a picture of yourself before the experience and asked, as Christoph does at the end of his video, “Who was this person?  Was it really me?”
