Ari Fararooy is an apt traveler with with some real kickass filming and editing skills. Each time he goes on a trip he comes back with some great and inspirational footage. His latest travel video exploit is called ‘Turkey Jump’

Turkey Jump

Previously covered on kickasstrips he was hilariously ‘Chasing himself around South America’.
This last July 2014 he went on another trip. This time with his sister and he instantly turned her into his newest video protagonist. Fararooy and his sister spent 2 weeks backpacking around Turkey. It was fun. and the resulting video is awesome and will want you to jump on a plane to Turkey straight away.

The video reminds us a lot of the ‘Follow Me’ travel photo series by MuradOsmann. In his photos Osmann takes the viewer on an intimate journey together with his girlfriend who’s leading him around the world. The pose is almost the same in every picture: the girl never shows her face, and the guy almost never lets go of her hand. Like this:

Alhambra, Granada, Spain

Fararooy uses a similar perspective in his ‘Jump Turkey’ video following his sister around different locations in Turkey. His medium is video instead of photographs and he doesn’t hold her hand. But for the rest the perspective is strikingly similar. And kickass travel inspirational. Have a look for yourself:

Locations used in the clip are: Istanbul, Cappadocia, Olympos, Pamukkale, Büyükada & Lake Tuz. Fararooy used a Sony a6000 (fisheye lens) for the filming.

Music is in typical Ari Fararooy style ‘Just some song I made for this video’ – by Mr. Ari Fararooy himself.
