Vincent Urban's envy-inducing video traces a journey through Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Uruguay, Paraguay and Southern Brazil. The five-minute escape is full of time-lapse shots and landscapes worthy of the BBC's Planet Earth series. 

The video stars "a rusty Land Rover" and features Ólafur Arnalds' "3055" as a soundtrack. Watch it full screen and you'll be itching to look up flights to South America.
