Our YouTube Journey
When we started thinking about travel in retirement, Bev started our creative journey off with the idea we would start a blog like this one. She has always loved writing and after being a stay-at-home mom was looking forward to having a new creative outlet. John jumped in and offered to start a YouTube channel and film our adventures.
By looking at our videos, we obviously knew nothing about YouTube, a channel, editing a video, or telling our story through film. We worked hard to get it right, but it was much harder than it looked.
We started off near home, using our little camera, a GoPro, and a small drone. We laugh at our efforts, but more than not, we cringe at the mistakes we made. This first year, though, we learned something new each week, and we tried to do better. It was a fun challenge.
Our second year saw some improvement, but you’ll have to check it out here! (It’s still a little cringeworthy!)
Hopefully even more improvement in our third year, but you can decide by clicking here.
This is our fourth year. Wow, that’s unbelievable to type, but we hope to bring you lots of travel information that can help you better plan a trip of your own.
We also enjoy doing YouTube Shorts, so if you like that format better, check out ours here.
