We all need to get away sometimes, whether we work in cubicles or, like the leaf-cutter ant, deep in a tropical forest. These little guys work their thoraxes off! It’s only fair that they should take an occasional break from the grind to explore what’s out in the world. See what happens when one does just that in this charming, heartwarming video from the folks at Costa Sunglasses. It might inspire you to explore your world and live a richer life... just like your new insect friend.
