Our Japan Trip is drawing ever so near. Only 3 days left until we leave! Unfortunately, we left some of the planning uncomfortably late and have been rushing around the past two weeks trying to get everything sorted. I can’t really express just how excited I am about this Adventure. Words just don’t seem to be enough.
I am pleased to announce that I will video/vlog our whole journey – from our very early flight at 5am to the sad return after two weeks – and that the videos will soon be available on the Beautifully Travelled Youtube Channel. In fact, I have been filming quite a few of our recent adventures, from countryside walks, to a visit of Stonehenge, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Helagon. I am currently in the process of editing them (most of our 26 hour flight to Japan will be spent doing just that) and hope to upload them soon.
While you wait for my youtube channel to be up and running, you might want to check out some of my all-time favourite travel vloggers. I have been binge watching these vlogs and can only aspire to make my videos as good and addictive as their’s.
FUN FOR LOUIS
Louis vlogs on a daily basis. His laidback friendly character and the rough and ready style of his videos have earned him over 1.5million followers. Although he is currently one of the most famous youtubers, he still remains very down to earth. Louis is a friendly chap, who make new friends every where he goes and his channel features quite a few recognisable faces. His videos are usually around 10 minutes long and Louis doesn’t bother with slick editing. This makes his vlogs more relatable and probably garnered him some of his fame.
The Vagabrothers are an amazing, fun and dynamic travel duo. And yes they really are brothers. In 2012 the two brothers combined and formed Vagabrothers, combining Mark’s travel writing and journalism experience with Alex’s filmmaking and photographic skills. Alex is outgoing, funny and sociable and makes friends with everyone. He is the risk taker of the duo. Mark is the thinker. He graduated with degrees in economics and political science. He explains the ins and outs of the cultures their visiting and enjoys looking for insights on global issues. The Vagabrothers videos are educative whilst remaing extremely Fun!
