If Travel Bloggers Were Honest They Would Make Videos Like This

Travel Bloggers

Currently Hannah and Just Jess created a fun and hilarious video that tries to answers the question: what would travel videos look like if travel bloggers were honest?

The parody video starts with nice-to-look-at, slow-motion travel footage along with a calm voice narrating what you see, what you really see. Then things in the video change.

The rest of the video (after 3min) sees Hannah explaining why she created the parody video and underlining how she is not exempt from these travel blogger stereotypes. It’s a funny video that points out the most common settings and places we’ve seen over and over in travel photos and videos on the web.

Last Days To Save On The Revolutionary Travel Tripod That Raised Over $8M

Peak Design Travel Tripod

There are some days left to save 20% on the innovative Peak Design travel tripod.

This revolutionary and extremely compact travel tripod raised over 8 Million Dollars on Kickstarter.

Key Design Features

  1. Spatial efficiency: Peak Design engineers reworked Travel Tripod’s legs and center column to nest perfectly together in order to achieve a total packed diameter of just 3.25 inches—roughly the diameter of a water bottle. The result is a tripod that deploys to 58.5 inches tall while taking up less than half the volume of its competitors.
  2. Redesigned ball head: Travel Tripod ball head operates more fluidly than traditional tripod heads while still prioritizing spatial efficiency. By utilizing a single adjustment ring Peak Design was able to eliminates bulky and confusing knobs. This not only improves user experience but helps the Travel Tripod maintain its compact diameter from tip to toe. 
  3. Rapid deployment: Peak Design developed a system of non-inverted legs that rapidly deploy along an aligned system of locking cam levers. With three swift hand movements, the legs can be fully extended and ready for action.
  4. Available in carbon fiber + aluminum alloy legs: carbon (2.81lbs – msrp: $599) aluminum alloy (3.44lbs – msrp $349)
