This 8-minute Video of Antarctica Is the Meditation Your Day Needs
The internet may not be where you would think to look for a relaxing moment, but in the case of Kalle Ljung's Vimeo account, it's exactly where you'll find one.
The Stockholm-based filmmaker only has one video on his page, like a little reprieve from the stresses of daily life from the relaxation gods. The eight-minute footage of Antarctica is exactly what your day needs.
The video was made during a 20-day trip to Antarctica spanning December 2014 and January 2015. Treat yourself to drone scenes of icebergs, glaciers, boats setting out to sea, swirling grey skies. It's as calming as it sounds.
At the end of the video, stick around for the scrolling story that tells the tale of this journey. Far from a regular getaway, this adventure was inspired by Ljung's father's travels around the world, specifically a three-year trip that began in May 2014 at a dock in Valleviken, Sweden for the 73-year-old man.
At the end of the year, Ljung found himself traveling through Chile and South Africa before finally heading toward the Melchior Islands in Antarctica.
