The typical work break runs the gamut from walking around the block to scrolling through Facebook to scarfing down a sad-looking salad at your desk. This break is not like the others. Our ongoing Weekly Escape series transports you from your desk to an incredible place in two minutes or less. This week we fly above the Lofoten archipelago in northern Norway with filmmaker Dennis Schmelz. Watch and daydream about dramatic mountains, quaint towns, and secret bays. You can follow Schmelz on Facebook here and on Instagram here.
