Osaka and Nara – highlights

Another Japan video is live!

After our 2 days in Hiroshima, or next stop was Osaka where we spent 2 days as well. There is not many things to do in Osaka, so a day to explore the city centre is enough. You will see in the video below that we spent the first day exploring Osaka Castle and Dontobori, the city centre where you will find the famous Ebisu Bridge and the Glico Man sign.

On the second day, we headed out of the city to Nara, a public park famous for it’s huge temples and its roaming deer. We spent the day exploring the grounds and making new furry friends.

I will go into more details on all our Japan itinerary in a series of posts coming soon, in the meantime if you want to see more of our Japan trip, have a look at my Kyoto video and the Hiroshima one. Next stop, Tokyo! Chances are this video will be at least an hour long as I have sooooo much to show you!

2 days in Hiroshima – highlights

New video alert!

I am still working through all the pictures and videos I made in Japan, and I finally had a few hours free to edit the footage of our 2 days spent in Hiroshima! A city which surprised us with its modernity and busy nightlife.

We spent a day exploring the city centre and the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. The museum is beautifully done and the whole area shows you the impact of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, in August 1945. An emotional visit yes, but an important one. It is hard to comprehend the level of destruction the local community experienced at the time when you walk in the streets of the lively city Hiroshima has now become.

On the second day, we headed to Miyajima island to visit the famous Shrines and see the world-famous floating Torii. It seems that 99% of all postcards of Japan must have been photographed there. It was one of the most beautiful places we visited during our entire trip! We also made a few furry friends on the way as you will see in the video below!

I hope you enjoy those 6 minutes in Hiroshima!

4 days in Kyoto – highlights

This Spring we took a trip of a lifetime. We went to Japan!

It was on our wander list for a very long time, so we decided to bite the bullet and use all our miles to make it across the world to the Land of the Rising Sun. We were not disappointed, Japan is EVERYTHING you imagine it to be. We were soooo ready for it that we didn’t even experienced any cultural shock! We just embraced it all!

I did a bit of filming while there and here is the first highlight video of my ‘Japan series’ – 4 days in Kyoto.

I will of course share all the details of our trip in several blog posts coming soon, so watch this space!

A weekend on the Jurassic Coast – highlights

After a first video of my trip to Puglia, here is my second video creation – the highlights of our weekend on the Jurassic Coast. I like to play with new type of content and thought you would like it!

The Jurassic Coast stretches from Devon to Dorset and offers some of the most impressive and scenic views of England. Why this name? Millions of years ago this was the house to many palaeontology creatures and today it is the house of many fossils. It is a fantastic escape to the English seaside and I will soon share our full itinerary!

Also you may wonder why our car feature so much in the video. Well… This is the creative input of Andrew who is having a love affair with his new Alfa Romeo Giulia…

Hope you enjoy it!

10 minutes in Puglia, Italy

Well 11 minutes and 33 seconds to be precise.

Something very different today on the blog! I am a little scared to put this out there, but I thought you guys would be the best placed to let me know what you think. I am a beginner at this but making movies has always been a passion of mine, I just never shared them with anyone and thought it was about time to change this!

That’s it people I am officially a vlogger! And the worse vlogger that is, as you will see at 9:44 !

Enjoy the highlights of our trip to Puglia, Italy. And please let me know if you want to see more little movies like this!
