Around The World In 9 Months (VIDEO)

Any time anyone travels the world and films it, it's bound to be enlightening. Whether it's a cross-country road trip or evenings in Paris, any documentation of a place can shed light on the nature of a location to those who have yet to see it.

Ayrton Orio, a self-proclaimed jack of all trades (director, photographer, editor, painter and graphic designer) traveled to 22 cities in 9 months, all the while documenting his time.

The video captures locals in their regular habitats, a city's feel (check out the cool views of Rio from above!) and even animals around the world. Though Orio spent most of his time in South America, he also traveled to Africa and Asia.
