Stan Chang just released the second in his Magical Europe series. Warning: you may want to travel Europe after watching.
The lovely project was a family affair:

Interwoven throughout the memories of those three years of travel are the even more precious memories of our older son as we watched him grow from month six to age three. And now both of our children are so excited and amazed when they watch the completed film. I believe that it is really an unbelievable experience for them; for my older son who lived it and still remembers, and for my younger daughter who has joined us in the journey.
