By Dustin Walker on 01/Apr/2014

Few things get a globetrotter more fired up than an enticing travel video.

So if your urge to explore has been waning lately, check out our collection below of some of the world’s most inspiring excursion footage. We’ve got an uplifting look at Myanmar, a colorful montage from a hitchhiker’s epic journey and a guy who took a 2,900-mile stroll across China. And didn't shave once.

If these vids don’t give you itchy feet, I don't know what will. Check ‘em out and let us know if we've missed any of your favorites.

A Handful of Myanmar

Despite the recent tourism boom, Myanmar is still one of the few places on earth that remains largely untouched by Western influence. This video captures both the cultural and natural beauty of this amazing country.

This video highlights incredible locations and colorful characters as Benjamin Jenks pursues his dream of hitchhiking across the U.S.

A Story For Tomorrow

Everyone loves a good story. So rather than compiling a montage of travel footage, this videographer crafted a narrative around the video he shot in Chile and Patagonia. It's a nice alternative to the typical stop-motion vids.
