Shark Diving With Marine Dynamics – Vlogumentary #4 (MindfulTravel TV)

While we were in Cape Town, South Africa last May, we had the absolute pleasure of partnering with Marine Dynamics and Dyer Island Conservation Trust to go Great White Shark Diving in Gansbaai (the Great White Shark capital of the world). We caught up with Tammi, our on-board marine biologist, who told us a little bit about their work, their procedures, and the initiatives they take to not only protect and conserve the animals and their environment, but to educate their visitors as well. Great Whites are truly mag[...]

My First Eurotrip – Love and Terror.

In July of last year, my close friend Joma and I ventured to Europe. We passed through London, Paris, Milan and Nice by plane and train within a total of two weeks. I have to admit, of all the trips I had been on and had coming down the pipeline at the time, this was the one I was least excited about. There were a few reasons for this: Europe is definitely one of the more heavily explored continents in the world and I prefer to venture to less "touristy" destinations. I prefer nature trips over city trips any day, an[...]

#BEAUTIFULIFE Vlogumentary 3 – Safari With Cheetah Plains

In celebration of #NaturePhotographyDay, I'm super excited to share our third Vlogumentary - "Safari With Cheetah Plains". During our recent trip to South Africa, we were lucky enough to visit Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve and partner up with Cheetah Plains and Jaci's Sabi House, two amazing sister safari lodges that do an incredible job of immersing you in the surrounding environment and wildlife so that you leave with a greater understanding and a sense of ownership of the land and its inhabitants. Their hope is tha[...]

Raden: The Intersection of Travel, Tech, and Taste.

I've been searching for the perfect luggage for a really long time - for that perfect design that's both incredibly smart, and extremely stylish. Because my blog focuses on travel, tech, and taste, I was on the hunt for luggage that's the intersection of all 3; but while it seems like it should be the standard, my search proved otherwise. While there are several on the market with tons of features, new and innovative designs, and pleasing aesthetics, I found that if one leaned heavier towards one aspect, it was often lacking[...]

#BEAUTIFULIFE Vlogumentary 2 – Rwanda With Humanity Unified.

I'm really excited to share this video as it is our second Vlogumentary (our series of videos that are hybrids between vlogs and mini-documentaries), and it highlights very real impact Humanity Unified has made, and the visible progress of the community we work with as a result. This past trip felt different from my first 2 because it was clear that by that point the women knew we were there to stay. They knew by then that we truly have their well-being in mind, and it showed in their warm greetings, their bright smil[...]

“The Power of Imagery.”

This 1-minute piece is Emil's entry into the Sony's competition for the FS7 ii, and the top 10 videos with the most views/likes will then move forward to be judged for content quality. In other words, your views, likes, and re-shares would mean the world! During our time in Rwanda with Humanity Unified a couple weeks ago, Emil made this beautiful 1-minute mini documentary about The Power of Imagery and its ability to transport someone from their couch or seat to the ground in Rwanda so that they, too, can be as insp[...]
