Weekend trips, city breaks, a detour into nature or once around the world. Barely a few days off, you're already gone. Never before has the desire to travel been so widespread and visited places so overloaded. What do we get out of it, other than the picture proof that we have been there?

Director's Statement

Most probably all of us like to travel. Including me. Of course, I like to discover special places, new things, I prefer (so called) individual tourism rather than the masses. But since there are travelers everywhere, following Instagram discoveries and trip advisors – there is nearly no place left, untouched by tourism. Why do we all travel and all to the same spots? In my short documentary BEEN THERE I try to catch this way of human behavior in an observational humoristic way.
