Join me as I take a Balinese Cooking class in Ubud with a lovely mother/daughter duo who share their Balinese cooking and family secrets with me!
I started traveling as a lifestyle long before lifestyle travel was "a thing". The same goes for becoming a digital nomad, and also a vlogger. (Hell, the terms "digital nomad" and "vlog" hadn't even been invented yet). This Video Clips archive is testament to that.
See, shortly after I started traveling full-time (in 2007), I turned on the camera. With a former career in television, I figured I could put together some decent and fun videos.
I didn't really.
I mean, in the initial years, there were some okay videos, but to be honest most of them were crap - in quality, or content, or both.
I continued producing videos (thankfully of increasingly better quality) over the years, but without any regularity. Ironically, some became YouTube hits, like my video trying the Swedish delicacy/horror Surstromming, or hanging out with a kangaroo in Australia that wouldn't stop following me around (and trying to hump me).
More recently, I started up a Travel Vlog (episodes of which appear both here as well as in a dedicated category/page). Thankfully you'll see that the production value makes these video clips much more enjoyable to watch. So....please browse, and enjoy!
And please....check out my YouTube channel (which has even more videos than you'll find here), and subscribe if you like what you see!
CUTE MONKEY ALERT! I had to walk through the Sacred Monkey Forest in Ubud all the time during my first month in Bali. Here’s why people thought I was crazy for doing it. Oh – and see pics and vid of cute monkeys!
The Ubud Market in Bali is a maze of vendors selling wares useful to beautiful to tacky as hell. Walk through with me and learn how (and why) to negotiate.
At the end of Sept 2017 I evacuated from Bali; Mt Agung threatens to erupt any moment. Here’s why I evacuated, and maybe overreacted, but stand by my decision.
Here’s what brought me to Hong Kong, why I loved it (to my own surprise), and why I need to return. Short and sweet Hong Kong mashup video included.
I’m a talentless hack as an artist, but I took a Balinese painting class. Watch what happened, and learn about the philosophy behind this beautiful art.
