Matt Harding of video "Dancing" named Traveler of the Year

My favorite video of all times is Matt Harding's Dancing. Every time I'm at a friend's house and someone is on the Internet, I say, "Hey, there's something you have to see." The last time that happened was two days ago in Ottawa, Ohio, the town whose flood I wrote about last January.

Janelle Nanosen at Intelligent Travel offered up Harding's video yesterday as worthy of end of the year attention. Considering that I had just visited Harding's website, and it's such a feel good look at the world's people, here it is again.

Janelle mentions that Harding was given kudos by World Hum as Traveler of the Year. Of course he was, and rightfully so. As my friend, Tom Barlow at Wallet Pop said when he first saw it, "People in Hollywood spend millions of dollars trying to create the feeling that this guy was able to do in just four minutes."

As we move into 2009, here's hoping your travels bring you this feeling every day of the year. Wouldn't that be great?
