당신의 가슴을 두드릴 감동적인 터키여행(동영상)

(0) Comments | Posted October 20, 2014 | 1:02 AM

Watchtower of Turkey from Leonardo Dalessandri on Vimeo.


동서양의 문화와 예술이 어우러진 아름다운 나라 터키. 이토록 신비하고도 이국적인 매력을 지닌 여행지가 또 있을까?


위 동영상은 이탈리아의 레오나르도 다레산드리가 20일 동안 3,500Km의 터키 여정을 찍어 타임랩스(Time-Lapse)로 편집한 것이다. 그는 Vimeo 동영상 밑에 다음과 같이 설명을 덧붙였다. " 거대한 화산 지대 카파도키아, 온천도시로 유명한 파묵칼레, 터키의 수도 이스탄불 같은 지역 풍경부터 터키식 샌드위치 도니르(Doner) 와 차를 즐기며 생활하는 모습도 최대한 담고 싶었습니다. 물론 터키 사람들의 친절한 미소도 빼놓을 수 없었답니다."


레오나르도 다레산드리의 동영상은 숨 가쁘게 흘러가지만, 장면 장면마다 터키의 아름다운 색채와 풍경 그리고 따뜻함으로 가득 차 있다. 그의 멋진 여행 동영상을 더 감상하고 싶다면 여기로 들어가 모로코로 떠나 보시길!

이 고양이의 이름은 클레오다. 유튜브에 동영상을 게시한 이의 설명에 따르면, 클레오는 최근 매기라는 이름의 치와와를 입양했다. 이게 가능하냐고? 아마도 이 동영상을 촬영한 이의 유머러스한 표현이겠지만, 동영상을 보면 굳이 다른 표현도 없을 것 같다. 치와와를 껴안고 쉴 새 없이 핥아주는 모습을 보자. 클레오는 매기를 자신의 새끼처럼 생각하고 있는 게...

(0) Comments | Posted October 15, 2014 | 11:15 PM

'다람쥐 쳇바퀴 돌 듯'이란 말은 적어도 이 햄스터에게 해당되지 않을 것이다. 유튜브 유저인 벤 베버(Ben Bever)가 어느 애완동물 샵에서 발견한 이 햄스터는 쳇바퀴 속이 아니라 밖에서 쳇바퀴를 돌리고 있다. 인간이 동물을 운동시키려고 만든 쳇바퀴를 그냥 가지고 놀고 있는 것이다.

벤 베버는 "처음 이 햄스터를 발견했을 때, 혹시 바퀴 아래에 몸이 끼여서 못 나오는 건 아닐까 싶었지만, 자세히 보니 이 햄스터가 쳇바퀴를 자기만의 방식으로 가지고 노는 게 확실했다"고 밝혔다....

We Are All This Upside-Down Running Hamster

Sick of the rat race? Take a cue from this little lady, who's realized that, just because you're going in circles sometimes, doesn't mean you can't play by your own rules.

YouTuber Ben Bever says he spotted the hamster in a pet store and was initially worried she'd gotten stuck under her wheel. Turns out she'd just developed an innovative new way to run and "seemed perfectly content using her wheel upside-down."
