Mind-Melting Footage Of Turkey Puts All Other Vacation Videos To Shame

If only our friends' vacation videos were this fascinating.

Italian filmmaker Leonardo Dalessandri produced this whirlwind of a video, using footage he compiled during a recent 20-day, 2,100-mile journey throughout Turkey.

"I've crossed Cappadocia, Pamukkale, Ephesus, Istanbul, Konya; and tasted baklava, kunefe, doner, the turkish tea; and got the chance to meet the soul of Turkey, its people.. and got their smiles and their hospitality," Dalessandri writes in the Vimeo description. "This is Turkey lived by me from north to south, and I hope you enjoy it."
