Speeding around the world in under five minutes

(CBS) - I'm sure a few people out there made traveling more one of their New Year's resolutions this year. And if you didn't, you probably will after watching this amazing time-lapse video that shows you a whole lot of the world in just a few minutes. 

The video entitled "Time is Nothing // Around The World Time Lapse" shows a trip involving 17 countries over the course of 343 days and was posted by Vimeo user Kien Lam who writes about the basis for his experience:

After I quit my job last year, I packed a bag, grabbed my camera and bought a one way ticket to London. 17 countries later, I compiled this time lapse of the many amazing places I came across.

Is anyone else just a tiny bit tempted after watching to follow Kien Lam's example and take off for a travel around the world, too? Feel free to leave me some comment love below with your thoughts and experiences.
