The other night I was out for drinks with a friend of mine who is getting ready to quit his job to travel.
As I was going through them, I couldn’t help but think “Man, some of these are actually pretty good! I should get back into this!”
Hopefully soon I can get back into the vlog game, but in the meantime I have a short film that we’ve just finished up that may very well be my favorite thing I’ve ever created for Location Rebel Academy.
I’ll be releasing it in the next week or two, but in the meantime I thought it’d be fun to go through and show my 10 favorite videos that we’ve created over the years.
So grab a beer or coffee, throw on the headphones, and enjoy!
10) Bucket List Vlog: Climb a Mountain
The very first video I ever did on the site was only a few months after Location 180 was created. To date myself, this thing wasn’t even in HD!
9) One Simple Thing You Should Do to Change Your Life
Fast forward to a few months later, when I found myself on a beach in Krabi, Thailand. This was less than a week after arriving in Thailand, and you can already tell, I was a hell of a lot happier than I’d been the previous months.
The advice in this post was pretty good as well…
8) Driving in Scotland: Life on the Other Side of the Road
Standing on that beach I had no idea that I’d end up traveling the world to play golf, of all things, just a few years later…
7) MTV Cribs Bali: That One Time I Got an Insane Villa
Or that I’d be living in Bali the following year and staying in sweet villas for free.
6) How to Run a Marathon (Without Training)
This lifestyle isn’t without it’s ups and downs. Some things are easy, and some things are hard. Really, really hard.
On May 1st 2011 I completed my first, and likely only, marathon.
5) Petra Jordan Vlog: Aka Indian Ogle and the Search for the Hidden Grail
One of the best trips of my life was the week I spent in Jordan with Joel Runyon. We did everything from skydiving, to snorkling in the Red Sea to nearly finding the holy grail in Petra.
You can check out the full recap in my post on visiting Jordan.
4) Yes, the Dead Sea Really is That Salty…
We also almost went blind in the dead sea…
3) Guangzhou, China: When Your Friend Forgets Your Coming
But that wasn’t nearly as bad as the time I showed up in Guangzhou, China only to find out my friends had fallen asleep, wouldn’t return my calls, and left me abandoned outside their apartment.
2) Waterbom in Bali, Indonesia: A Day at the Waterpark
I should have ditched them and just hopped a flight back to Bali. Afterall, who doesn’t love a good water slide?
1) Taninah, Riviera Maya: Our Mayan Jungle Compound
The only thing cooler than a waterslide is a zipline. And the only thing cooler than a zipline is your own private zipline. Oh, and the only thing cooler than a private zipline? A private zipline, with a private cenote/grotto right next to it.
All of this with 10 of your closest friends? Now that’s a recipe for magic.
I have a ton more videos on my You Tube channel. So go subscribe, and check out some of the other ones that didn’t get featured here.
Bonus: The Desk
Since this post was originally published, we released The Desk. While it’s not necessarily a travel vlog, it is pretty awesome.
