Video of the Week: Dune Bashing in Dubai

There are still many videos from the World Traveler Internship I haven’t featured in this weekly series. Dubai is no longer one of them. Don’t forget to dune bash on your next journey to the Middle East. You can also watch this video on YouTube. Subscribe to Nomadderwhere’s posts via RSS feed or e-mail

Video of the Week: The Oz Experience

Surprisingly, I have yet to feature some of my World Traveler Intern videos as videos of the week! Wouldn’t dare deprive you of these joys. You can always watch this video on YouTube. [I'm still on vacation and cranking out work for ProjectExplorer.org's Mexico launch; hence, the lack of new material. However, I do have […]

Video of the Week: The Challenge Edition (Webcam)

Traveling creates a lifestyle of constant challenges, which then facilitate self-discovery and, in turn, happiness. This week, I report from my post alone in northern Indiana to ask you: how would you challenge yourself with a home experiment that would simulate the effects of travel? Notes from this week’s Video of the Week: I continue […]

Video of the Week: Seclusion Musings (Webcam)

After one successful week of relative seclusion in northern Indiana, I’ve got some thoughts to share – musings, if you will. Your feedback is strongly encouraged.

Video of the Week: Summer Seclusion Project (Webcam)

Haven’t seen one of these in a while, huh? A video of the week or a webcam special. I finally got my act together! Enjoy. Notes from this week’s video: ProjectExplorer.org is in post-production stateside after a fantastic filming session in Mexico. I’m moving out of my parent’s house for a month for some seclusion […]

Video of the Week: Preparing for Mexico (Webcam)

I finally dipped into the world of webcam, vlog-style videos, for both the sake of practicality/timing and in order to stay current with my website postings. As I embark on this trip to Mexico with ProjectExplorer, I am telling myself, “Stay current and create dynamic content with timing.” Also, I wanted to thank the awesome […]

Video of the Week: The World Traveler Intern-view

Along with my congratulations, I sent the fresh new World Traveler Interns a request for an interview before they took off around the world this summer. I wasn’t sure what angle I wanted to take it in, nor what kind of humor it would exhibit, but what came out was simply hilarious. I sent questions […]

Video(s) of the Week: Self-Teaching New Skills

I’ll admit this off the bat: this week’s video post is all over the place. Yes, it’s dedicated to the betterment of the self-taught skills, just like last week’s. Yes, it covers material from last year, this year, and calls for agency in yourselves! And yes, there are three videos this week. Just roll with […]

Video of the Week: Reviewing a Road Trip to Des Moines

This week’s video post is dedicated to the betterment of the self-taught skills. Recently, I answered a question on how to best groom yourself for the World Traveler Internship, and since a huge part of the job is video editing, I thought it wise to encourage an exercise that will only improve our skills in […]

Video of the Week: Nakavika Project Outtakes

Garrett and I met while traveling, which is why we share that close vaga-bond that provides plenty of laughs. Check out some of the outtakes from our 2.5 months in the South Pacific. Note on Nomadderwhere’s May Schedule: Now that you know my big news for June, I’ve got some catching up to do with […]

Video of the Week: Where Fiji Meets Ocean

The final Fiji experience: a week crisping the skin and exfoliating the feet on Waya Island in the Yasawa chain. Since Garrett had to head home early, I went on my own to relax, do a little Fijian research, and eventually find the best meal I had in three months – at a hostel in […]

Video of the Week: Leaving the Village

Remembering our last two days in Fiji together as we left Nakavika and The Nakavika Project – gathering supplies in Suva and spending our last hours together. Subscribe to Nomadderwhere’s posts via RSS feed or e-mail

Video of the Week: Fiji Water

When I think of Fiji water, I don’t think of rectangular bottles with untouched, artisan liquid inside. I think of the teal waters draped with vines and littered with bamboo shoots weaving through the interior of Viti Levu. We always found new ways to appreciate the water, and playing on this vine swing and wading in the hot springs were no exceptions.

Video of the Week: A Fijian School Morning

One of our last mornings in the village, we awoke early to join the kids at school, helping them brush their teeth and watching their military-esque line-up and discipline hour. Subscribe to Nomadderwhere’s posts via RSS feed or e-mail

Video of the Week: One Year at Nomadderwhere

Today is my 1,168th daily anniversary of travel blogging, but Nomadderwhere.com is but an infant still. Since I bought my own domain exactly one year ago, I’ve evolved my site extensively, far beyond what I was capable of from the get-go. I’m proud today to display my year’s progress and hopefully inspire you to achieve […]

Video of the Week: Our Favorite Fijian Pastime

Something Garrett and I took full advantage of was the easy access to an incredible swimming spot, fit with rock jumps, mini-rapids, sand bars, bamboo for building “bilibilis” (or bamboo rafts), and tons of kids always wanting to join the fun. This spot in the Luva River is called Nabukalau, or black water, after a […]

Video of the Week: The Dreaded Infection

After seeing three year-olds throw nails around the village for weeks, we finally saw that which we were anticipating with worried brow: someone stepped on a nail…and that unfortunately fellow was Garrett. Subscribe to Nomadderwhere’s posts via RSS feed or e-mail

Video of the Week: Elias’ Funeral

A 45 year-old man died of a heart attack at the top of the hill near Namando river. The village was hit hard, especially his widow and eight children.

Video of the Week: Village Life

While half our day is spend documenting and planning educational activities, the other half involves doing all things villager…playing rugby, working at the farm, swimming with the kids and just being a member of the community.

Video of the Week: Fiji is Paradise

Video of the Week: African Favorite Things

Revamping a classic musical number with a twist on Africa. These lyrics were written while bumping across Zambia on my Dragoman overlanding experience on the Big Journey in 2008. I know this is ridiculous, but I couldn’t help myself…

Video of the Week: World Traveler Intern Highlights

One of my least favorite questions to answer is “What was your favorite part?” Slimming down a trip into the best moments leaves out all the thrills in between and the trip’s entirety as a journey, which amplifies the highlights even more. The experience of the World Traveler Internship had an obvious highlight for me: […]

Video of the Week: Ireland on a Budget

Stay in hostels with free internet. Buy food to cook in the kitchen. Save your money for the pints of Guinness and ice cream you know you want. Occasionally have a pub meal, but remember all the things you can buy with a 20 Euro restaurant bill. And always be on the look-out for fun, […]

Video of the Week: Edinburgh Fringe Festival

The Fringe festival in Edinburgh has an atmosphere that would tantalize any arty, expressy person in this world. Constant performances in hundreds of venues. Street performers clogging the main thoroughfares. It’s a grand ambiance and worth visiting over and over again. If only I had more time to do this festival justice. Subscribe to Nomadderwhere’s […]
