My Travel Journal + Travel Planner

Moving over to Miles&More with Lufthansa, we were given these little journals.  When planning for a work trip last March, I started to fill it up with trip details since I was heading to Germany and then to Italy after as a little personal side trip.  After that trip was over, I started to plan the trip with the kids to Europe.  During the trip, I kept receipts and little papers.

When I got home I taped them all inside and printed some 5×7’s to pepper inside to make a little summary of the trip.  Now it’s getting fat and it’s going to force to to retire it.  Next big trip will be Thailand + Vietnam so I have a new journal for that trip shown below.

OSE (One Second Everyday) The Return | The Trip | Video

I started to make videos again.  Below is all the videos from the trip I just got back from.

The 8 films are a total of 45 minutes of viewing.

I will make a blog post and post photos from the trip.  I had difficulty flying out and you see that in the first two videos.  If you click the link below they will all play in a row.  You can skip over videos also.  Don’t laugh at them…. they are cheesy and I made them using my iPhone and using iMovie inside my phone to edit and publish them to Facebook and YouTube while traveling.</p

You can open the menu in YouTube and go to any selected video to view.

I will get my first tattoo.  I know what I’m going to get.  I should have gotten it 22 months ago.

First one will go between my elbow and my wrist

Above is my idea for one.

I thought I should write it out once and how I write it for the first time should be my first tattoo.  I’m silly that way.

I’ve written it out on my arm to get the hang of hit with my mind.  It’s simply the word… “enough” meaning… “enough is enough” with many things in my life.  I’ll snap some pictures when it’s happening and I’ll shoot some video to document it.  It’s a little simple one but I think having it as a daily reminder will be good.

enough is enough ( fitness, heath, nutrition, being bullied by my ex, living tiny, traveling )  see makes sense to me.  a daily reminder.

I will post some photos and video soon…

The Vietnam Notebook | 2012 | Film By Casey Neistat

A couple of weeks ago… Casey wanted to finish putting together a little movie about a trip he took with his son in 2012.  Love the journal he kept as they travelled documenting things with photos, video and paper with a mini-scrapbook.

Exploring.

Documenting with life and with kids.

As you might have heard… Casey is stopping his daily vlog a short time ago. He just sold his app Beme to CNN for 25 mil and will be starting up a separate media company for CNN next year announced today.  I’ve enjoyed just how creative his is with his eye for the angles and edits.  I’m looking forward to the little videos he produces.

You can view all my casey posts here.

It’s Not The Things | It’s The Memories

Yesterday’s Vlog by Casey was cool since he went back to tell a little story of when he climbed Mount Kilimanjaro

It’s always nice when he goes back to pull old footage and tell a story.  Near the end he talks about what his Mother told him… and I agree with him and not her.

This video reminds me of another story that is below when him and his buddy Graham climbed another mountain.  I love his story telling.

Jesus.  I need to climb a hill.  Just a hill.  Have to start somewhere.

Why I Admire How Casey Neistat Tells A Story + Edits + Documents Life

Why do I enjoying watching Casey’s YouTube Channel everyday to see his yesterday?

It is simply his outlook on life and his storytelling along with his editing.  Dude makes a video of everyday an films it in a very interesting style to help tell a story.  He gets better and better at his editing and how he films sequences from other points of view is wild.  The video above highlights some of this.

Interesting video from Nerdwriter below that highlights certain things.  If you watch is vlog… you will notice he is over 500 days in a row.  His channel just passed 1 Billon views.  His daily view average on his daily vlogs is around 1.5 million.  He is at 4.2 Million subscribers.

Someone went through his vlogs… and edited his perspective on things.  It’s very interesting and you can watch it to get an idea of what makes him tick.  It’s kind of his “meaning of life”.  So much good advice.

Here is Part Two below:

If you watch his vlogs more closely and focus on the time and effort he uses to set up shots or add in little details to his surrounding space… is wild.  Dude shoots footage during the day… then edits the footage deciding what to keep and what to not use and also adds music to highlight the story.

My fave vlogs are when he is traveling.  Here is some in a row right here:

 


I also like the little story of Casey + Candice and it’s great that he can go back in his archives and grab footage and bring it into his stories.

Trying to do some little storytelling of my own is humbling and makes me appreciate how effortlessly easy it is… and it’s not.
