Maine Coon Cat: Meet Hobie the kitty with a big personality
 
02:47
A couple of years ago we surprised Sam's parents by getting them a Maine Coon cat. The first time we ever encountered one of these giant cats was at a cat cafe in Seoul, Korea. We soon visited a few more cat cafes around the world and it was with further encounters we fell in love with this gentle giant breed. The following is a video of our one and a half year old Maine Coon who has many names but officially is called Hobie. You'll find shots of him playing, jumping, splashing, running, chasing, climbing, scratching, eating and a whole lot more. This cat is full of personality and it won't take long for you to realize why we think he's equally parts mischievous and adorable. In terms of facts about the Maine coon gato enjoy the following: The Maine Coon is the largest domesticated breed of cat and you'll notice in terms of its physical appearance large pointed ears, long whiskers, silky flowing coat and massive paws. These cats typically have a playful personality and are intelligent often being compared to dogs in terms of certain habits such as fetching and enjoying water. They're most similar in terms of appearance and size to the Norwegian Forest Cat. Come find out why we love this bread so much and how this little orange/red Maine Coon cat has turned our lives upside down ;) GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ Maine Coon Cat: Meet Hobie Video Transcript: Meet Hobie the Maine Coon Cat, also known as Hobster the Lobster. Hobie is Sam's red-headed brother, and he's been causing mischief ever since he joined his human family. He may look cute, but this one is a troublemaker, though a lovable one at that. Hobie has a fascination with water and if there's a dripping tap or a bathtub being filled, he'll be the first one at the scene. He loves drinking water from the tub, and if someone were to forget the toilet lid up, he'd likely climb in there too. Playing with bubbles is another pastime for this cheeky little Maine Coon. He'll paw at the water while the tub fills, and then once bubbles start to form, he'll watch in amazement and then try to paw those too. He'll lean in as far in as he can without falling into the water, though I have a feeling he would enjoy a swim if he ever were to tumble in. Once bath time is over, Hobie will wait for his human to leave behind a wet towel and then he'll crawl under it. Like I said, he's a strange one. When he isn't playing with water, Hobie enjoys grooming time. Oh, and scratching furniture as well. Especially if the piece happens to be an antique. This lovable Maine Coon kitty is always up for play time. He enjoys chasing a laser across the couches in the living room, and he could easily spend a half hour running back and forth if it weren't for the fact that his humans get tired. Sometimes, however, his balance is a little off. There he goes... Aside from laser tag, he also enjoys playing with 'Specie-Bird'. He likes to catch a mouthful of feathers, but not when the camera is rolling. That's when he decides to sit down and just stare at you. Another game he enjoys is playing tag with Sam. Hobie will chase Sam down the halls, and then the two trade places, and Sam chases him down instead. It must be pretty scary having a red-headed giant chase you down the halls, but since Hobie runs faster than Sam, he has nothing to worry about. Now this is where Hobie shows of his acrobatic skills. If running weren't impressive enough, he also enjoys leaping. And I'm not talking about leaping on furniture; he'll jump onto the kitchen counters, then onto the fridge, and then sit himself atop the cupboards. And after all that, he'll take a minute to enjoy his own lunch. Bon appetit, kitty! Of course, Hobie is still a young kitten, so after all that activity, he needs a siesta. If all his running around has tired you out, this is when you can enjoy a nap! Quick, before he wakes up. Cuddles are still a work in progress for Hobie the Maine Coon, but regardless of that, he's a keeper! This is part of our Maine Coon cat video series showcasing Maine Coon cats.

We sampled gin and Scotch whisky, wandered down tiny closes, braved the crowds along the Royal Mile, ate our fill of haggis, and even visited a castle, a palace, and an abbey. So, if you’re looking for things to do in Edinburgh on your visit, this video guide will show you all of those attractions and then some! Edinburgh Castle is hard to miss as it dominates the city’s skyline. The first thing you should know about the Castle is that it’s not just one single building, so once you’re inside there’s quite a bit to see and do; you can tour the Royal Palace, see the Crown Jewels, watch the firing of the one o’clock gun, step inside St. Margaret’s Chapel, visit the National War Museum and so much more, so give yourself plenty of time. We also made time to visit the famed Royal Mile, which is the busiest street in Edinburgh’s Old Town. There’s quite a bit to see along here, so we first popped into the Royal Mile Market, which is set inside a former church, and from there we continued down the street, visiting little souvenir shops along the way. You’ll have no trouble finding a kilt here! Another activity we really enjoyed was taking a food tour with Eat Walk Edinburgh. We got to try a lot of delicious bites and beverages along the way, and one of the highlights was visiting the Fugde House. Another fun way to explore Edinburgh on foot is by wandering down the tiny closes. These small alleys were often named after a memorable occupant, and the Old Town is full of them. And that’s it for our visit to Edinburgh, Scotland. We hope you enjoyed following our travels and that this video gave you a few ideas of things to do, foods to try, and places to visit around the city. As always, if you have any other suggestions of things to do in Edinburgh, feel free to share those with fellow travellers in the comments section below. Until next time!

10 THINGS TO DO IN QUEBEC CITY | Travel Guide
 
06:08
If you want to experience a Canadian city with a bit of French flair, then you need to visit Quebec City. Situated on the banks of the St. Lawrence River, this is a town with good looks and a big heart. We only had a day and a half there, but that was enough time to wander the cobbled streets, catch some street performances, and visit many of the top attractions. The following is a little video of our time in historic Quebec City, Canada highlighting the top 10 things to do and see in this top attractions travel guide: GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ 1) Plains of Abraham We are no standing on the Plains of Abraham and this is the location where the battle between the English and the French was fought. This was the battle that ultimately determined the fate of North America. This battle was part of the Seven Years' War and it would be the deciding factor over the fate of New France, influencing the later creation of Canada. 2) Citadelle We just finished visiting the Citadelle and if you get the chance I would suggest you try to be here by ten in the morning. That is when they have the changing of the guard ceremony and it is a lot of fun to watch. They even have a pet goat that takes part so it really is a lot of fun. The Citadelle is the largest British fortress in North America. 3) Chateau Frontenac Now we're visiting Chateau Frontenac, one of the most famous hotels in all of Canada. It is a stunner. It is just absolutely beautiful. We're trying to capture it from different vantage points. The hotel was designed by American architect Bruce Price. It was one of many "château" style hotels built for the Canadian Pacific Railway company with the goal of promoting luxury tourism. Today, a night at the Frontenac starts at $379 dollars. 4) Terrasse Dufferin This boardwalk that we are currently standing on is called Terrasse Dufferin and it is a great place for a stroll. You can catch some street performers, eat some ice cream and you also get some great views of the river below. The promenade sits right outside the Chateau Frontenac and it is 425 meters in length. You can also catch a funicular nearby which takes you to the Old Lower Town. 5) Quartier Petit Champlain Petit Champlain is a neighbourhood located in the Old Lower Town. It is quite picturesque, especially when viewed from the Breakneck Stairs. The narrow cobbled streets are lined with small shops and cafes. It's a really fun neighbourhood to explore with a camera in hand. 6) Basilica Notre Dame de Quebec The Basilica Notre Dame de Quebec is the oldest church in the Americas north of Mexico. If you want to get a sneak peek at the crypt, you'll have to sign up for a guided tour. 7) Rue St. Paul We're now walking along Rue St. Paul and this is a great place to browse for antiques and you can buy some souvenirs. Just don't leave your visit to the end of the day because you may find that a lot of the shops have closed. 8) Museum of Civilization The Museum of Civilization is a great place to learn about the Aboriginal peoples of Quebec. 9) Port of Quebec We're here now in the Port Area. This is a great place to take a ferry. A lot of people come here to exercise, to fish and just to enjoy the views of the St. Lawrence river. It is a really relaxing place. The Port of Quebec is the oldest in all of Canada and it played an important role in developing the region. Today you'll find that cruises have replaced much of the former freight traffic. 10) Catch a Street Performance And lastly, you can't come to Quebec City and not catch a street performance! The city celebrates its performers and you'll often find acts taking place in the town square and parks. Grab a seat for some live entertainment and don't forget to leave a tip at the end! And that concludes our brief but very enjoyable trip to Quebec City! We hope that you enjoyed this video and that it will help inspire your Canadian travels.

Over the past couple of years, since we launched our travel video channel, we've been blown away by the support you have all offered us.

We've really appreciated all of the support you've offered us through all of our travel videos. And normally we're quite private people but we wanted to share this with you. It has just been an honor. Yeah, we actually meant to do this after the wedding but we kind of forgot, so we figured 6 months worth celebrating we'll put it out there now.

GET TO KNOW SAM & AUDREY: FAQ'S About Travel & Life
 
07:00
We've really appreciated all of the support with our Youtube travel channel & videos over the past two years. Along the way we've been asked a lot of questions in the comments section. For the first time we sit down to answer some of the most popular and commonly occurring questions related to our travels and personal life: GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ How can you afford to travel? We've earned money teaching English in South Korea and we've also done freelance travel writing. In addition we earn money through our travel blogs http://nomadicsamuel.com and http://thatbackpacker.com What's it like teaching English in Korea? Overall, it was a a great experience. This is where we met each other in person after knowing one another online through our travel blogs. It was trial be error as we were just thrown into the Korean classroom without any on the job training. However, we got the handle of it quickly and as long as you enjoying teaching children it is something we can recommend to try. You eat a lot of street food. Have you ever had food poisoning? Indeed, we have! Personally, I've been sick in India, Thailand, Malaysia, Bolivia and Cuba just to name a few places. Oddly enough, we've never got sick from eating street food. It has always been from food we got at a restaurant. As a common sense guide, we recommend you eat at street food stalls where the vendor is cooking with high levels of hygiene and where it is busy with lots of locals lined up waiting to be served. Do you ever get tired of traveling? What are some cities where you could see yourself settling down? What are your favorite travel destinations? We've experienced burning out on the road several times. When we get sick of travel we've settled down in Chiang Mai and Berlin for a while. Some of our favorite countries include Jordan, Germany, Finland, Vietnam, Turkey and India. How did you two meet? We knew each other through our travel sites, met in person in Korea while teaching English, traveled the world together and recently got married this summer. What is your biggest travel mishap? We're constantly screwing up on the road; however, our biggest mishap by far was having our train derail en route from Bangkok to Chiang Mia while living in Thailand. Other than that we've had our shorts split in half, lost our wallets and many other kinds of things. Please let us know if you have any more questions for us! Anything at all. It can be related to travel, life or just a comment about how weird we are ;) All photos and video taken by Samuel Jeffery (Nomadic Samuel) and Audrey Bergner (That Backpacker).

We are in Barcelona and this video is going to highlight 25 things to do here. It is kind of hard to believe our time in Barcelona has expired. So final thoughts. Well, it was a really fun city to visit. Great architecture, really nice beaches. It is very lively especially at night. The only downfall is that we were here in the middle of summer so it was super hot and super crowded and sometimes that made it a little bit difficult to enjoy. Especially at midday or in the mid-afternoon. So keep that in mind. Maybe consider visiting in the springtime, fall, winter. Well, so what did you think of the city? It is definitely a fun city. We had a lot of fun going to the beaches. One thing that is really different about this city compared to some other European cities though is that it is really spread out. In order for us to visit all of these different attractions we had to chunk them together into groups to visit them day by day. Overall, it was a decent city. It didn't quite click with me the same way that Madrid did. But that is just personal preference I suppose. And that is a wrap for Barcelona! Our 5 days in the city flew by, and while this guide didn't cover everything, we hope we were able to give you a feel of what this fun seaside city has to offer.

Watching baseball in Japan is an absolute must even if you're not necessarily a fan of the sport itself. The atmosphere with the crowd cheering, chanting and singing combined with the fascinating food options and additional entertainment make it an experience you'll never forget. ジャポンで初めて野球の試合を見て楽しかったです。甲子園球場で日本プロ野球リーグの阪神タイガースを見ました。野球の試合、ファンのお祝いの雰囲気、おいしい日本食やビールを本当に楽しんだ。私たちは野球のチケットがあまりにも高価ではなく、エンターテインメントレベルが非常に高いことを発見しました。日本では野球の試合を観て、野球の試合を見てみるために日本を訪問することを勧めます。 GEAR WE USE Panasonic GH5: http://amzn.to/2yqTUyi Canon G7X ii: http://amzn.to/2yqtM6B Rode Video Micro: http://amzn.to/2wTguTM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ Japanese Baseball Game Experience Video Transcript: One thing we had to do in Japan, is experience a Japanese baseball game. As a spectator, baseball in Japan is different - very, very different and in this video we’re going to show you a few reasons why! Good evening good evening guys. Hello hello. Today is baseball (野球) game day. It is baseball in Japan. Yeah. We're going to be watching a Japanese Baseball Game. And it is our first time ever to do that. We are watching one of the one of two local Osaka teams. They are called the Hanshin Tigers (阪神タイガース). And we just arrived at Koshien stadium (阪神甲子園球場). As you can see I've already picked up a new hat. Fancy. I'm loving it and it was so easy to get our tickets. We bought them online this morning. Yes. We just had to go on and scan in with the barcode. Yeah. At a machine they spitted them out. They gave us real tickets. Yeah. And it was like I think they were it was 2,500 Yen so probably like $23 US dollars or something like that. So super affordable and we've also arrived with appetites so I think our first order of business is going to be to grab some food. TEAM SPIRIT If you’re going to support your team, you have to look the part. I picked up a Hanshin Tigers hat, but there were far more dedicated fans with really clever outfits. (Anthem playing) Woah! We're just about to start. (Fans cheering and music playing) FOOD Next up, food. Forget popcorn and hot dogs! Japanese baseball games offer an extensive food selection at great prices. It’s good to arrive hungry! Guys check out all of the different unique things you can get here at a Japanese baseball game. There is an extensive menu. We've got sushi, we have fried noodles, we have octopus balls. A bit unusual but very tasty. So we got some snacks for the game. Yes. We got pizza. This is teriyaki pizza guys. Oh. And over here this one was really funny looking if I can get it open. Check out that. A hotdog pizza. Yeah. It has got a hot dog and tomatoes. Yeah. How is that pizza? It is pretty good. I'm so hungry. Wow. So tell us what have you found now? So moving on to round 2 of dessert. I have found a chocolate churros. Yes. And inside of that is an ice cream. There is whipping cream and this is uh basically a pancake. Like a crepe. A stuffed dessert. Stuffed pancake. Wow. Only at a Japanese Baseball Game. Indeed. BEER If you want to buy beer, you wave down the ‘uriko’, which are the women who carry beer kegs on their backs. The beer at the games is surprisingly affordable too. CHEER When it comes to Japanese baseball (野球), something fascinating is that each player has their own unique song and the crowds will sing and dance when they’re up to bat. (Cheering and music) PLAY Even if you’re not a baseball fan, it’s worth attending a Japanese baseball game for the atmosphere. The game is exciting, but the crowd’s energy steals the show. Fun fact: games can end in a tie. That baseball game was a lot of fun. If you come to Japan you definitely have to go to a Japanese Baseball Game.

Ají de Gallina: Delicous Peruvian cuisine in Lima, Peru
 
04:30
Aji de gallina is a delicious Peruvian classic - slightly spicy and bright yellow from the famous aji amarillo peppers, and rich from the unusual cream sauce made with ground walnuts. This dish is traditionally served over rice, with boiled yellow potatoes and black olives. You can buy frozen yellow aji peppers (they often look more orange than yellow) at Latin food markets. You can also find jarred aji amarillo paste, which works well too. If you can't find aji amarillo peppers, then substitute another hot chile pepper and add a yellow bell pepper for color.

We've placed our order and that should be coming soon. Cat friend. Hi, cat friend. Hi. Okay, so the food is already here. That came very quickly. So let's have a look at the plate. This is Ají de gallina and as you can see it is kind of like a chicken stew. It is made with shredded chicken and the sauce has a cream, cheese and peanut base. And also the way they thicken this sauce is by adding bread crumbs that have been soaked in either a broth or milk and this is served with rice or boiled potatoes. And the boiled potatoes and kind of hiding underneath all of the chicken here. Oh, we do have boiled potatoes. We do. Yeah. I thought we were just given rice. So this is a very hearty meal. I'm kind of glad we're sharing one plate because there is no way I could eat all of this. Um, but yeah, let's dig right in. I'm just going to try it with rice here. Look at that. This looks so good. This is one of my favorite ways that chicken is prepared here in Peru. I love this dish. Mmmmhmmm. And, I don't know if I forgot to mention this but another key ingredient is Aji. The hot pepper. But because it has a cream base it is not super spicy. So I really love this. Look, they actually gave us aji sauce too. In case we want it spicier. Maybe we should add a little bit. In case it wasn't enough. Yeah, just dunk it all over that rice. I'm not sure if that is how it is done but that is how we do it. So it is now Sam's turn to dig in. Yes, my turn. And what is really cool about this dish is like you were saying it is kind of a everyday dish. An everyday part of Peruvian cuisine and this is something we've had a lot at your Aunt and Grandma's house. Oh yes, this is our first time to film it but it is a dish we are very familiar with. For me it is just the sauce that makes it. I love the cheese and the cream and peanuts. Those are all ingredients I really like. And then when you add tender chicken to that and a little bit of rice. That is just such a winning combo. And to wash this all down what did you get? I got myself a strawberry smoothie and this is oh natural with no sugar added. So it is not super sweet but it is healthy. Taste those strawberries? So we polished that off in like a minute and a half. Yeah, more like demolished it. But what was really cool about this is that it tasted homemade even though this is kind of a fast food type of joint. The actual Ají de gallina it tasted homemade. It tasted like what we've been eating at my family's place. Yeah, yeah. It was amazing. Authentic, delicious, cheap and really tasty. So now tell us how much did we spend on that delicious Ají de gallina? You know what, it wasn't expensive. It was only 14 Soles so in total that was four dollars and fifty cents US. Really good value and yeah I'd recommend coming here because the food was authentic, homemade style and we're satisfied. Yeah, so this place is called Republica. Yum.

The only other city that I think can compare with Chicago - in terms of attractions - in America is New York. Whether you're scarfing down Chicago style deep dish pizza or taking in a Blues festival you'll find no shortage of things to do in the city. If you're a sport fan there are no shortage of professional teams to follow at any time of the year including the Chicago Blackhawks, Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox, Chicago Bears and the Chicago Bulls.

Come join us for some of our favorite Indonesian food as we have a classic dish in Gado-Gado and something we've never tried in Selat Solo (as known as Solo Bistik Jawa) at Warung Selat Mbak Lies restaurant in Surakarta (Solo). If you're visiting Surakarta (Solo) they have a unique type of Indonesian cuisine worth sampling: Warung Selat Mbak Lies Restaurant Address: Jalan Veteran, Gang II No. 42, Serengan, Kota Surakarta, Jawa Tengah 57144, Indonesia Phone: +62 271 653332 GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ Indonesian Food: Eating Gado-Gado and Selat Solo (Bistik Jawa) travel food video transcript: So it is dinnertime here in Solo, Indonesia and we're trying a new restaurant that was highly recommended on TripAdvisor. We're eating a place called Warung Selat Mbak Lies. Hopefully I got that right. It is a pretty long name. We're really enjoying the restaurant so far. It is very quirky and there is a lot going on on the walls. Like there is ceramics and plates and arts. And we're sitting on these low to the ground tables. There is all of these snacks on table which I think you can purchase if you get hungry until your food gets here. So yeah, we've placed our order. We kind of had to guess what we're getting but is should be tasty regardless so we're waiting for that to arrive. Gado-Gado. Gado Gado. Yes. Selat Bastik. So I am super impressed because our food showed up in record time. Yeah, that was awesome. I mean we're really hungry and the food was at our table within minutes. In like two minutes. That was awesome. So what are you having? So I'm starting off with Gado-Gado which is basically a vegetable and compressed rice salad and it comes in a peanut sauce and although this food isn't unique to this particular region of Indonesia, I mean it is one of those foods that you can find almost anywhere in Indonesia but we thought we'd show it to you anyways. And it is a popular street snack as well. You can try it in restaurants and on the street. So I'm going for I'm trying to just get a bite here with lots of peanut sauce, a bit of a cracker and some of the vegetables. Let's see. First bite. What makes this so good is the peanut sauce. The peanut sauce is amazing. It is like you get that strong peanut taste but it is also really sweet as well. Sam, loves peanut butter so I knew he would enjoy it. Is it sweet? It is very sweet and then you have like the contrast of the crunchiness of the cracker and then the basically the vegetables that go along with it. Why don't you take your spoon and swirl it around and let's see what else is in there. I see some beansprouts. Yeah, there is beansprouts, it looks like there is lettuce. It looks like there is all kinds of things going on. No, it is not an egg. No. Let's break it in half. Or is it meat? The mystery. It is an egg! . Hahaha. It is a very dark egg. It has been cooked in soy sauce or something so. I love this. Yeah, one of my favorite Indonesian dishes for sure. My food is here as well. We ordered something called Selat Bistik Jawa or Selat Solo so if you take a look down here it is basically a braised beef tenderloin with a watery gravy and it also comes with vegetables. We have some green beans, some carrots, it looks like some mashed potato here and there is like chips kind of sprinkled on top and what else. Other vegetables. Some onions. So apparently this is like a twist on western slash dutch food that has been like adopted here in Indonesia and just changed to their taste. Yeah, it is like with Javanese ingredients. Yeah. So let's try this. Dig right in. You know what I'm going to start with this egg. Okay. This dark egg. I've never had such a dark egg before. And apparently the soy sauce is quite sweet. Is it sweet? That is a sweet gravy. I mean it is quite watery. It is almost like you're having a soup. It is like a main dish but kind of looks like a soup. So yeah. Let's get a bit more. Some mashed potatoes, some chips and maybe some beef. Okay so time for price point. Yeah, so we're stuffed. And that came to again under five US dollars. So really good value, we ate a lot and now we're ready to go back home. This is part of our Travel in Indonesia video series showcasing Indonesian food, Indonesian culture and Indonesian cuisine.

Our first impressions exploring Lima, Peru (Miraflores - Larcomar)
 
03:53
After catching up on some much-needed sleep after our eight-hour flight, we were off to explore Lima, Peru. Where we are staying, in the Miraflores area, is one of the most desirable parts of the city. Within a short walking distance, we found ourselves visiting Larcomar shopping center situated against a cliff overlooking the ocean. GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ From scenic views to people watching it was a place we could relax and acquaint ourselves with Lima. With paragliders soaring above us, we felt somewhat inspired to potentially try this ourselves one of these days. Aside from the paragliding, it was just nice to be wearing shorts and t-shirts for the first time in 2015. We would have filmed more of the parks, people and landmarks, however, our camera battery died. This whole travel thing isn't as easy at looks and we're admittedly rather rusty these days. Our first impressions of Miraflores (Larcomar) in Lima, Peru travel video transcript: So first full day in Lima. We got in last night at like 2am and we got some rest, so this morning we are out exploring. We're actually staying in the neighborhood of Miraflores so we're just going for a walk and we're going to show you some of the parks, the beach and it is so nice to be getting some sunshine guys. After that brutal Canadian winter this is bliss. Now talk about a change. I'm actually wearing shorts and t-shirts for the first time in 2015. Oooh, show us the outfit. Woo Hoo! So we're noticing some amazing paragliding. These paragliders are just going right out over these tall buildings and then going right out over the ocean. It looks fantastic. Neither of us have done paragliding so far in our lives but we may just be tempted to give it a shot. So right now we are visiting Larcomar which is like a shopping center that sits right over the cliff overlooking the sea. It's a pretty good location. And then our camera battery died because we forgot to charge it, so that is all we can show you today. But we will be exploring more of the neighborhood in the days to come, so stay posted for that.

It's a city we're going to show you all the friendly kittens that are just strolling the streets. They are collectively taken care of by the community.

Visiting Pena Palace | Day Trip to Sintra from Lisbon, Portugal
 
08:42
Join us as we visit Pena Palace on a day trip to Sintra from Lisbon, Portugal. Traveling to Sintra from Lisbon is as easy as can be with frequent trains departing from Rossio station in central Lisbon making a 30-40 minute journey to Sintra, Portugal. We paid 5 Euros for a our ticket and hoped on the next train departing shortly after we arrived at the station. Before we did any sightseeing, as per our usual style, we grabbed a quick bite at Café Saudade where we had scrumptious paninis and a couple of local desserts (queijada and travesseiro). We'd highly recommend this place as the prices were very reasonable and the quality of food was excellent. After it was time to figure out how we'd visit the attraction we came all the way to Sintra to visit - Pena Palace! After checking several options we realized the local bus was the cheapest option (5.50 Euros for a return trip) and so we hopped on bus number 434. After arriving at Pena Palace we paid 11.50 Euros each for an adult ticket and my parents got a senior discount at 9 Euros per person. Firstly we toured the exterior of Pena Palace where we we marvelled at the bright colors and various influences in terms of its eclectic architecture. We also had wonderful views over Sintra and especially of the Moorish Castle. Afterwards we walked around inside before calling it a day. Overall, we'd say it would take around an hour to three hours to check this place out thoroughly. It is bigger than it looks from a lower vantage point. And that was our day! Visiting Sintra to properly check out the town and other attractions warrants an overnight stay and with just an afternoon to spare we really only focussed on Pena Palace. However, if you're looking for an interesting day trip from Lisbon we'd highly recommend considering Sintra. Ciao for now!

First things first, we needed to grab a quick bite. We spotted a cafe serving up pastries, paninis, and all sorts of baked goods, and that was all the convincing we needed. With our appetites satiated, we continued our stroll through town, and then decided we should probably hop on a bus, and save our legs for visiting the attraction that brought us all the way out here: the Pena Palace. Once we reached the gates of the Pena Palace we purchased our tickets, and began the climb to this colourful, whimsical, and somewhat kitschy construction set atop a hill in the Sintra Mountains. Though Pena Palace’s history dates back to the Middle Ages, what you see today dates from the 19th century, with construction of the current castle completed in 1854. You may think that this place looks like a mish-mash of different styles, and that’s because Pena Palace is a Romanticist castle, that was influenced by Gothic, Manueline, Moorish and Renaissance architecture. The commission for this castle was given to a German amateur architect, and the King’s only request was that “this palace should reflect an opera” - whatever that means. The tour of the interior of the palace followed a carpeted-route that guided us through a chapel, bedrooms, dining rooms, living rooms, and a kitchen - all decorated with historical furniture to reflect how it would have looked when the Portuguese royal family lived here before their escape to Brazil during the revolution. Then we stopped for one more glimpse of the surrounding hills, and it was time to head back down. And yes, that’s all we did in Sintra that day: ate lunch, rode a bus, and visited one palace. We’re not kidding about maybe coming here for 2-3 days, because there’s way more to cover than you can on a day trip!

ICE CANOE RACE at Quebec City Carnival (le Grand Défi des Glaces)
 
02:26
Cold, ice and frigid waters? These are things most people avoid; however, at Quebec City Carnival the legendary ice canoe race is what many consider to be the main event. Courageous teams brave the elements to compete against each other along the St. Lawrence River. Having had the opportunity to try ice canoeing with Audrey, we both have absolutely mad respect for the athletic prowess and sheer bravery of the participants. There are not many things I've tried before that have scared me quite like being out on the river dodging massive slabs of ice. The skill of the participants to navigate the waters is truly impressive. GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ In terms of the event, crews of five athletes push their canoe across giant slabs of ice and row in waters featuring tides of over 15 feet and ice blocks weighing several tonnes. If it sounds like madness let me assure you - it is! For maximum traction on the ice, athletes wear special shoes featuring bolts screwed to the bottom. Fiberglass canoes are a minimum 250 pounds ranging in length from 6 to 8.5 meters. Considering ice canoeing once featured wooden canoes merely meant for transportation, the sport has truly evolved over the years! The Association des Coureurs en Canot à Glace du Québec (ACCGQ) was formed in 1984 to organise and standardise races. Six races are accredited by the ACCGQ: La Grande Traversée Casino de Charlevoix, La Course en canot du Carnaval, La course de la banquise de Portneuf, Trois-Rivières Extrême, le Défi Canot à Glace Montréal, and le Grand Défi des Glaces. The latter is the biggest event. It is run during the Quebec Winter Carnival, at Quebec City every February. ICE CANOE RACE at Quebec City Carnival (le Grand Défi des Glaces) travel video transcript: One of the most exciting events of Quebec's Winter Carnival was the ice canoe race. This event is exactly what it sounds like. Teams hit the frigid waters of the Saint Lawrence river with their canoes and race through a mix of ice, slush and water. Originally, a means of winter transport, ice canoeing has become a sport for the bold and brave. Having had the chance to try this ourselves we had some serious respect for the teams competing. Here is a look at this legendary event. This is part of our Travel in Canada series.

50 THINGS TO DO IN NEW YORK CITY | Top Attractions Travel Guide
 
16:36
Our recent week in New York City was an action-packed one. We decided to set ourselves a challenge to see and do as much as we possibly could, and that gave way to this travel video guide which highlights 50 of the top attractions. In a city like New York this means we barely scratched the surface, but hopefully this video will highlight the cornucopia of possibilities that is the Big Apple.

If you only have time to visit only one city in the United States it ought to be NYC, USA: http://nomadicsamuel.com/photo-essays/50-things-to-do-in-new-york-city 50 Things to do in New York City Top Attractions Travel Guide: 1 Grand Central Terminal 2 The High Line 3 Meatpacking District 4 Greenwich Village 5 Brooklyn Bridge 6 Williamsburg 7 Street Art in Williamsburg 8 Prospect Park 9 Dumbo 10 New York Style Pizza 11 Bryant Park 12 New York Public Library 13 Staten Island Ferry 14 Statue of Liberty 15 Battery Park 16 Little Italy 17 Little Korea 18 Chinatown 19 Coney Island 20 Mermaid Parade 21 The Cloisters 22 Harlem's Apollo Theatre 23 Soul Food in Harlem at Sylvia's 24 World Trade Center Memorial 25 Trinity Church 26 Wall Street 27 Lincoln Center 28 Ride a Bicycle 29 Watch a New York Yankees baseball game at Yankee Stadium 30 MET Museum (Metropolitan Museum of Art) 31 Flatiron Building 32 Washington Square Park 33 NYU (New York University) 34 National Museum of the American Indian 35 Museum of Natural History 36 Times Square 37 MOMA (Museum of Modern Art) 38 Roosevelt Island Tramway 39 Fifth Avenue Shopping 40 Rockefeller Center 41 Empire State Building 42 Carnegie Hall 43 Central Park 44 Strawberry Fields 45 Street Food 46 Catch a Broadway Theatre Performance 47 Madison Square Garden 48 African Burial Ground 49 Columbus Circle 50 Take the Subway Metro Most journeys begin at Penn Station or Grand Central, and if you arrive at the later you'll be wowed by the building. The Meatpacking District was once home to markets, slaughterhouses, and packaging plants, but times have changed. Today you'll find a mixture of trendy restaurants, clubs and boutiques. The Village used to be a bohemian neighborhood that drew artists and musicians, but today you're more likely to find upper middle class families living here. Completed in 1883, Brooklyn Bridge is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States. Williamsburg has become popular given its lower rent prices. University students and young professionals have been flocking to this part of town. You can walk along the riverfront for a great view of the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges and the Manhattan skyline. During the summer months, Bryant Park also becomes a popular hangout spot people looking to relax and even work on their tans. The Staten Island Ferry is free of charge and this makes it really popular with visitors who want to catch a glimpse of the Statue of Liberty from a distance. Battery Park is located on the southern tip of Manhattan. Having both lived in South Korea, we were thrilled to come across Manhattan's own Little Korea. Coney Island is all about good old fashioned fun. The Cloisters will make you feel like you've travelled over to Europe. Central Park is massive and there are so many places to visit within its boundaries. We managed to visit Belvedere Castle, the Great Lawn, Shakespeare Garden, The Ramble, The Jackie Onassis Reservoir, the Alice in Wonderland Statue, and we still left feeling like we barely scratched the surface. And that concludes a look at our very busy week in New York City. I'm still shocked we managed to cover so many attractions, but the great thing about this city is that distances aren't very long and there's always something really cool worth checking out around each corner.

Argentine Breakfast in Buenos Aires, Argentina
 
06:16
Come join us as we take you out for a typical Argentine breakfast in Buenos Aires, Argentina at a favorite little cafe nearby our apartment. Hint: it's a sweet one!

Or a desayunar. Now we wanted to go to a really nice cafe that is near the Recoleta Cemetery; however, it is pouring rain outside so we just ran out of our apartment and found the nearest cafe and popped in. So we've placed our order, we are hungry and yeah we're going to be showing you what breakfast looks like in this part of the world. So Sam our breakfast has arrived. Breakfast has arrived. I am a very happy boy. Well, the cool thing about breakfast in Argentina is that they like to keep it simple and sweet. And that makes it one of my favorite meals here. So I'm pretty happy with what I ordered. I got Café con leche which is coffee with milk. The milk is super frothy by the way. Check that out. I'm not even a coffee drinker. I normally go for tea but when in Argentina you've got to do it right. You've got to get some coffee. And then over here I have my medialuna. Which is like a croissant. This one is made with butter and I have facturas which are little pastries. So this one is made with crema pastelera which is kind of like a yellow cream similar to Boston Cream. And this one is stuffed with quince jam. So super excited about that. This is going to be a good breakfast and I'm just going to dig right in. I'm not waiting for you. Ha! Mmmm. So, I bit most of the jam out but if you have a look inside. It is like a little croissant roll. A butter roll stuffed with quince jam which is so good. Mmmhmmm. So Sam can you tell us what you ordered for breakfast. I sure can. So if you take a look down here I'm having something called tostadas which essentially is toast. Yes. It is a massive generous portion. It's a lot of toast. 6 slices. Yeah, I was thinking maybe like two slices but I've got six. And what I'm most excited about here is this is like a whipped butter and it looks amazing. So I'm just going to pour it, not pour it, spread it all over and then take a bit of the jam. I wonder what kind of jam it is. It looks like it may be cherry jam actually. Cherry or a dark raspberry. So getting that ready. Let's see how good this toast is. Wow. That is some mighty fine toast. Starting the day with sugar. Oh, yeah. And beverage of choice this morning? Yeah, and for me the best part about Argentine breakfast is the coffee. The quality of the coffee is superb. And I ordered one with con leche. Cafe con leche which means a generous portion of milk and wow is it ever good. I usually put in one pack of sugar, stir it around and it is like perfection. It is magic. Perfection in a cup. Have a sip. I could have this any time of day. Not just for breakfast. And breakfast also came with orange juice today. It did. How is that? Is it from concentrate? Or freshly squeezed? You know what, it actually tastes freshly squeezed but the pulp has been removed. So good quality orange juice too. We are going to be on some kind of a sugar high by the time we're done all of this food and drink. Well, as you as you can see we had no trouble devouring that. Yeah, we polished that all off. It is time for price point. Yes, so basically it was 60 pesos per person which right now is between 4 to 5 US dollars. And in some cheaper cafes you can get it for like three but this one is like a really nice quality meal. And they're really generous with the portions and the quality of the food was good so excellent value I'd say. So you're satisfied? Very much. I may need a siesta after breakfast. A morning siesta. This is part of our Travel in Argentina series. We're making a series of videos showcasing Argentine culture, Argentine arts, Argentine foods, Argentine religion, Argentine cuisine and Argentine people.

La Lucha Sanguchería: Pan con Chicharrón (Braised Pork Sandwich) for lunch in Lima, Peru
 
03:56
Peruvian cuisine is diverse enough to suit any kind of craving. When we're in the mood for something a little bit greasy and filling we usually head out for a Pan con Chicharrón (Braised Pork Sandwich) with fries (Papas Fritas) and a strawberry fruit smoothie (Batido de fresa). It's a winning combo ;) For lunch we headed to La Lucha Sanguchería, after numerous recommendations, to try this classic combo. With a diner like atmosphere, quick turnover, and big crowds it's a lively place to grab a bite just across from Kennedy Park in Miraflores, Lima. The food didn't disappoint as the portions were huge (we just ordered one set to split between the two of us) and left feeling like we could loosen our belt buckles just a tad ;) If you're in the mood for some Peruvian fast food definitely give this a try.

It should be really tasty. We are waiting for our food to get here. And yeah, let's get started. So our food has arrived. Yeah we've got our Pan con Chicharrón. It's looking good. It looks amazing. If you look down here you really get a good tour of what we have. So we've got a bun and inside it looks like we've got lots of onion. I'm guessing it is sweet onion. Yeah. Then we have the fried pork and then the kamote - the sweet potato. Exactly. So that looks like a pretty awesome sandwich. Let's try it now. Yes. Alright, it is my first bite. Mmmm. It's so good. It's so good. You know what really makes a sandwich. I mean the meat is awesome it is really good quality but it is the sweet potato. I love having sweet potato in my sandwich. That's an unusual ingredient but it works doesn't it? It does. Look at that. Oh. So it is now my turn to taste the magic. The magic in your hands. Wow. That is wonderful. I think my favorite part is actually the onions. So are they more sweet? Sweet and I think. I wonder if it has a little bit of vinegar. It's a little sour which I really like. Oh no, lemon. I think it is lemon drizzled on the onions. That is what it tastes like. Mmmmm. So so good. And of course we had to get a side order of fries. Yeah, because no sandwich would be complete without a healthy portion of fries. And these are really crispy looking fries that you can actually still have the skin still on them. Yeah. So we've got three different dunking sauces. I have no idea what they are. So I'm going to try them one by one. Let's try this one first. That's like a tangy tartar sauce. And the fries are really tasty. Yeah, I'm guessing this is ketchup. Yes. Hmmm. Was it? He guessed correctly once again. But it is sweeter than North American ketchup. Yeah. And last one - I'm thinking that might be. I'm going to guess mayo. Good guess. You nailed that. Bingo. Alright, and to wash it all down I got this strawberry smoothie. Mmmm. Which is really like thick and frothy and sweet. You can tell they use fresh strawberries. It's really good. So how much was it for that good greasy meal? Alright, so that delicious feast of a meal was 30 Soles which in the current exchange rate is actually less than 10 US dollars that included our huge sandwich, our fries and a strawberry smoothie that was delicious. So not bad, right? This is part of our Travel in Peru series.

Our favorite Greek Cuisine in Athens, Greece
 
04:05
Having spent a decent chunk of time of Greece it didn't take us to develop a love for Greek cuisine. For our final food video in Athens, Greece we visit a traditional Greek restaurant where we dine on dishes such Greek salad, Saganaki (fried-cheese) and Moussaka. If the food wasn't a highlight enough in and of itself we had an extra bonus of having a talented Greek musician playing traditional music during our meal. GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ Our favorite Greek Cuisine in Athens, Greece Travel Video Transcript: It's lunchtime here in Athens and we are starving because we've been walking around all morning. So we found a little restaurant. We're going to be eating Greek food obviously. And we are starting out with some homemade bread and black olives. Those are really good olives. The pit. Hahaha. Bread with olive oil. Can't go wrong. So we've now been in Greece long enough to know what some of our favorite foods are. And we're having three of them here. We're having Greek salad which doesn't need too much of an introduction, Moussaka and also Saganaki which is a fried Greek cheese. Yum, now we are just waiting for our order. So first up we're having something called Saganaki which is a fried cheese. And it gets its name from the pan that it is fried in. Apparently it has two handles and just have a look over here. It's a nice chunk of cheese. Now it is nice and golden from being fried. And it also comes with a little bit of lemon which we can drizzle over top. Oh yeah, drizzle, drizzle, drizzle. And this can be made with three different types of cheese. You can have Gruyère, Halloumi or Sheep's milk. And it is very very salty and very greasy since it has been fried. And it is probably not very healthy but it is so good that we just keep ordering it with every meal here in Athens. Let's have another bite. Mmmmm. That is really good guys. Good stuff. And what are you having? Now this next dish is one of personal favorites. It's called Moussaka. And let's take a look down at it. So you can see that there is a layer of Béchamel sauce, you also have minced meat, you have potatoes and you have eggplant. So apparently this is a pretty old recipe, right? Yeah, this dish dates back to the former Ottoman Empire. And you can also find it in countries such as Albania and Turkey presently. So time for me to finally have a bit of this. Wow, it is so thick! It's like a Lasagna almost. It almost looks like a Sheppard's Pie to me. Yeah, that's actually a better comparison. Mmmm. That's fantastic. And because we're trying to keep this a balanced meal we did order a salad. A Greek salad because this is Greece. So as you can see we've got tomatoes, feta, cucumbers, black olives. We've got some peppers and olive oil drizzled all over top with a little bit of oregano sprinkled as well. So it looks really really good. Let's take a bit of that. Oh yeah. Don't forget the feta cheese. Yeah, that's right. Let's get a bit of everything. Onions. Cheese. Tomato. Hahaha. Mmmm. That's really nice. The olive oil has a really special flavor here. You can almost taste the olives. It's just really good and a nice and refreshing salad. Really nice. And price point for that delicious Greek meal? So for all of that food we paid about thirty Euros. Keep in mind we did eat in a touristy zone and if you're in a more residential area you can maybe expect to pay 20, 25 Euros for that. This is part of our Travel in Greece series. We're making a series of videos showcasing Greek culture, Greek arts, Greek foods, Greek religion, Greek cuisine and Greek people.

25 Things to do in Osaka | Japan Travel Guide 🇯🇵
 
19:24
In this Japan travel guide, we are sharing 25 things to do in Osaka! Affectionately known as Japan’s Kitchen, Osaka was the first stop of our trip to Japan and a wonderful place to eat! We dove straight into the local cuisine visiting markets, street food stalls, and restaurants that required ordering from ticket vending machines. But our trip to Osaka (大阪市) wasn’t all food. In between all the eating, we also managed to visit towering skyscrapers, hidden temples, and retro gaming arcades - all of them complete surprises.

The easiest thing to do is to get a prepaid card where you can load money as needed. Osaka’s version of this card is called Icoca, but you can also use Pasmo and Suica in the city.

Machu Picchu Travel Guide Documentary
 
07:36
There are wonders of the world and then there are places on planet earth that seem like they deserve an upper echelon category. Machu Picchu is certainly one of those places. The lost city of the Incas, also known as the Old Mountain (Machu Pikchu), is a 15th-century Inca site located 2,430 meters above sea level. Visiting Machu Picchu again for a second time was a reconfirmation of its ability to impress all over again. We toured the site, this time around with a guide, on the first day with rainy conditions in the morning and overcast by the afternoon. On the second day, it was just gorgeous and sunny outside from the moment we arrived. My biggest tip for anyone visiting Machu Picchu is to budget several days to visit the site because of its sheer size and how unpredictable the weather can be. GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ Machu Picchu Travel Video Transcript: So do you think people will be able to guess where we are based on the landscape? I'm not too sure. It's quite foggy right now. Where could we be? What could be off in the distance? Good question. Should we tell? Yes. It is Machu Picchu. Machu Picchu. That is Machu Picchu guys. Breathtaking is it not? This is a baby llama having breakfast. Breakfast time. Can you give us an update on the current situation? So the current situation is that it has stopped raining. Yes. And it is starting to clear a bit. We're hopeful. Right now it is eight thirty six, and we're hopeful that maybe around ten or eleven, if it doesn't rain again, that we'll have some sunshine. Clear visibility of Machu Picchu. Get those iconic views. Yeah. We know that the Quechua people were able to mummify people. But they used to mummify some important people from their culture. So they used to mummify to the royal family, they used to mummify to some people who were part of the high class people. So then they'd take the bodies. The mummies into the cave and they'd put them you know in the fetal position because they used to believe that they could enter into a different life after this life. Rocking the new hats. The chuyos. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So the soldiers possibly used this to place the torch. The fire. Okay. But also they could maybe place here a pet which was maybe a llama or this was maybe an alpaca that they would use to sacrifice in one of the temples. So here we're checking out an Inca toilet. Is it an en-suite? I'd say so. What are we doing Audrey? Getting our Machu Picchu stamp. So this one is yours. Ready. Ta da. Welcome to my home. This is the living area. It still needs to be furnished. And this over here is going to be a little reading nook and I'm put my books there, there and there. Alright, so we found a nice quiet spot here and I want to know your impressions of coming back to Machu Picchu for a second time? Okay, so Sam, you visited Machu Picchu about six years ago, how has does this trip compare to that one? This is like night and day. Six years ago I was the ultimate cheapskate backpacker. I came to Machu Picchu using the cheapest transportation route possible. Basically I took this van on this really twisty serpentine off-road area and then I went across on this cable car using this wooden trolley. It was really dangerous. Okay, so now next question. I know people always see Machu Picchu in documentaries, postcards, magazines. Do you think it is important for people to see it in person? Yeah, absolutely. It's actually one of these wonders of the world that actually lives up to its reputation. And what I really think, what I really get out of coming to Machu Picchu is just a sense of the sheer scale of the place. Like it is massive. When you come here and walk around you get a really good sense of just how big this lost city of the Inca's is. Woo hoo! Go Machu Picchu! This is part of our Travel in Peru series.

Thai Street Food Tour in Bangkok, Thailand at Chatuchak Market (จตุจักร)
 
12:38
Join us for a Thai street food tour in Bangkok as we visit Chatuchak Weekend Market (ตลาดจตุจักร) which is the biggest market in of of Thailand and a great place to sample cheap Thai food. Also known as Jatujak or JJ Market (จตุจักร) you'll find over 15,000 booths spread out over 27 acres of space. To cover the entire market would be a daunting task but just randomly wandering around and sampling cheap Thai eats is what we most recommend. For some reason we especially had a sweet tooth so you'll notice we sampled a lot of Thai desserts. Open on Saturday and Sunday it can attraction over 200,000+ visitors per day so be prepared to bump elbows with others. Also, we'd recommend visiting earlier in the morning to avoid crowds and the midday sun. Here is a complete list of the Thai street food we sampled: 1) Itim Kati - ไอติมกะทิ: Thai coconut ice cream inside a coconut 2) Kluay Tod - กล้วยแขก: Fried battered Thai bananas or plantains 3) Thai Coconut Solution Noodles (ก๋วยเตี๋ยวแก้ปัญหามะพร้าว) 4) Thai beer (Leo เบียร์ลีโอ) 5) Thai chocolate, banana and egg pancake (roti) (โรตีกล้วย) 6) Thai Mango Sticky Rice (Khao Neow Ma Muang - ข้าวเหนียวมะม่วง) GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ Thai Street Food Tour in Bangkok, Thailand at Chatuchak Market (จตุจักร) Video Transcript: So it is a Sunday here in Bangkok (กรุงเทพมหานคร) and today we're visiting one of the most popular markets in all of Bangkok.

So one of the recommendations I read online for this market is to visit early in the morning before it gets really busy. Um, and we were like no we should wait until it is crowded that way we'll have ambience and we can show you what it is really like. But the problem now is that it is super hot. It is probably like 12 noon and it is jammed packed. There is almost nowhere to walk and it is a little bit overwhelming but I guess that is to be expected from Thailand's biggest market. So here we are looking for food. Oh man. It is so good. This is one of those Thai desserts that no matter how much I've eaten for the day I could like be totally stuffed and I'm still got a bit of room for this. There is always room for sticky rice. It is just that good. It is just that good. Love that stuff. And if you're coming here I mean at 50 Baht it is really cheap and I highly recommend trying this. You can have it on the street, you can have it in restaurants. You can have it just about anywhere. This is a classic Thai dessert. Alright guys so we just finished visiting Chatuchak Market (จตุจักร) and now we're relaxing and resting a bit at Chatuchak Park (สวนจตุจักร) which is like right down the street basically. This is basically an oasis. It is an oasis after the market. Oh my gosh. The market is overwhelming. Just to give you a little bit of perspective the market has over 8000 stalls. It has 27 different sections and apparently it takes up something like 35 acres of space. So it is huge. And we couldn't find any maps that kind of like plotted out this is the food area, this is like the fashion. So we were wandering around aimlessly for a long time. And we finally just started purchasing random snacks along the way. So I don't even know if we made it to the proper like food court area but we found Thai street food. We ate so we're full, we're satisfied and now it is time to go rest. This is part of our Travel in Thailand video series showcasing Thai food, Thai culture and Thai cuisine.

We also cover off-the-beaten-path outdoor activities you won't find in a typical Granada tourism brochure, Granada itinerary or Granada, Spain city tour also known as Granada España. 10 Things to do in Granada, Spain Travel Guide Video Transcript: Wrapping up our travels in Spain, our last city to visit was Granada. Set in Andalusia at the foot of the snow capped Sierra Nevada, this is a place where Moorish influence is palpable. From hilltop fortresses to Moroccan markets, and tranquil gardens to quaint teahouses, in this travel guide we’re going to show you some of the things you can do in Granada: This Cathedral was as grand as you’d expect. The stark white interiors were a bit of a contrast to the ornate churches we had seen in other cities, but that just made your eyes travel towards a glowing, golden altar. The Moroccan souk turned out to be one of our favourite spots in the city. The street was packed with tiny shops standing shoulder to shoulder, all filled with leather handbags, glass lamps, wool slippers, colourful scarves and pashminas and souvenirs. We continued our way up the hill into Albayzín. This is one of the oldest centres of Muslim culture in Granada. The neighbourhood is a maze of narrow cobbled streets, white-houses with tiled roofs, and small courtyards sprinkled in between. We made time to stop at one of the teterías, or teahouses. This was the perfect place to rest on a cold winter day and enjoy some afternoon treats. You can find numerous Moroccan restaurants in this part of the city for food. One place we ate at on more than once occasion was Al-Faguara. They offered set menus for lunch featuring hummus, falafel, couscous, tajine, and of course, lots of baklava. Let’s take a moment to talk about Granada’s main tourist attraction: the Alhambra! The Alhambra is a massive complex of palaces, gardens and fortresses that once formed the citadel of the Nasrid Kingdom of Granada, which was the last Muslim dynasty to rule along the Iberian Peninsula from the years 1230 to 1492. This is the one attraction you can’t miss when you visit Granada, and you’ll want to book your tickets well in advance as they can sell out during high season. We spent half a day touring the grounds during which time we visited the Nasrid Palaces, the Palace of Charles the Fifth, the Alcazaba, and the Generalife. We decided to find a cafe where we could indulge in a delicious Spanish breakfast. Another spot we explored in Granada is Carrerra del Darro, a small lane that runs along the Darro River at the base of the Alhambra. This street is lined with arched-stone bridges and historic buildings. We’ll leave you with a few scenes of Granada at night and one last glimpse of the Alhambra lit up against the evening sky. We hope you enjoyed this video and that you got ideas of things do in Granada on your own visit.

Bigos: Eating Polish Hunter's Stew in Warsaw, Poland
 
03:09
So far in Poland we've been enjoying hearty meals typically rich in portions of meat and potatoes. Continuing with this theme we tried Bigos, after a recommendation from a Polish born man now living in the US, which is known as Hunter's Stew consisting of fermented cabbage, sauerkraut (known locally as kapusta kiszona), Polish sausage (kielbasa) and various other kinds of vegetables and meats. Upon first glance it is not the most appealing looking dish; however, it is really tasty and flavorful with a strong sour flavor due to the fermented cabbage. If you're in Warszawa, or anywhere in Poland for that matter, be sure to try Bigos! GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ Bigos: Eating Polish Hunter's Stew in Warsaw, Poland Travel Video Transcript: So it is lunchtime over here and we are in Warsaw's old town. Today we are going to be sampling something called Bigos which is a traditional Polish dish. And it consists of different meats and cabbage. So we've just ordered our food and now we're waiting for it to get here. So tell us the tail of how we learned about Bigos. While we were traveling on the train from Berlin to Warszawa were met this Polish guy who spent a lot of time in the US. And basically he was raving about this Bigos. This Hunter's stew. So this is the reason why we're trying. A recommendation from a local basically. Alright, so my lunch has arrived. Low and behold here is my Bigos. And this may look like a small portion but that is just because I ordered it as an appetizer. And you can normally get it in a bread bowl or you can get it with a side of potatoes. I got some sliced bread here in the basket so I'm going to be trying that. And also, I've learned that no two Bigos recipes are the same. It is basically just a mix of different cuts of meat. You can have beef, veal, pork, venison, rabbit. Whatever you want to throw in there it works. So I've got a nice fork full of cabbage and some kind of meat. Let's see if I can decipher what it is. Okay. That is really good. The cabbage it almost tastes a little bit fermented but it is not as strong as sauerkraut. And the meat, I think it might be beef. It's a familiar flavor. So time for your first fork full. Yeah! Yeah, you're right. That is really good. I like that is has a bit of sour taste. That is really appealing for me. And what is cool about Bigos is that it literally means big mess, big confusion and so if you look down here that is exactly what it looks like. It just looks like a hodgepodge of all different kinds of things. Vegetables, meats, cabbage. And that is exactly what Bigos is. Okay, so apparently Bigos is the kind of dish that you can refrigerate. And then reheat and that is meant to make the flavors a lot stronger. And it is also the kind of dish that keeps on giving. So that means if you start running low you can just add some cabbage, add some meat and make it last for a week. Alrighty, so that was delicious. What is the price point for the Hunter's Stew? So if you want to pickup the Hunter's Stew while you're in Poland you can expect to pay the equivalent of five to seven Euros. And definitely we recommend it. It's delicious and it is very hearty and just an awesome meal. This is part of our Travel in Poland series. We're making a series of videos showcasing Polish culture, Polish arts, Polish foods, Polish religion, Polish cuisine and Polish people.

Sandboarding in Huacachina and Dune Buggy Ride
 
04:33
Having arrived in Lima on a Monday, our first weekend in Peru was spent escaping the city limits in search of adrenaline inspired adventures in Huacachina in the form of sandboarding and dune buggy riding. Having experienced this desert based activity five years ago I knew exactly what we were getting ourselves into; however, I downplayed the situation slightly to Audrey ;) What exactly is it like to be riding dune buggies in the desert? It's like a rollercoaster in the sand. Even the most seasoned extreme adventure sports lovers scream and nervously laugh like hyenas racing down dunes like it is nobody's business. It's a healthy dose of excitement with more than just a pinch of craziness. Sandboarding, on the other hand, doesn't exactly present an opportunity for your adrenaline levels to calm down. GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ Equally as stimulating to the nervous system, you race down sand dunes head first experiencing a steep incline. You're racing down the dunes at such high velocity, It's only mere seconds before you go from the top of the dune to the bottom. Although these activities in Huacachina (just outside of Ica) may induce a few grey hairs we wholeheartedly recommend it. After all, if you're not doing something that scares you every once in a while you aren't truly living! PS. To rent a private dune buggy with a guide and access to three dunes for sand boarding it costs roughly 50 Soles per person based on a three person tour. This is roughly $50 in total. Huacachina: Sandboarding and Dune Buggy in the Desert Travel Video Transcript: Welcome to Huacachina. Today we're going to be having some fun in the desert and first up we're riding dune buggies. Woo! Woah! Screaming! Enough of an adrenaline rush so far? Oh my goodness. We've only been doing this for a few minutes and I'm already feeling wobbly and shakey. I've just been screaming the whole time. You know what, I did this five years ago and we haven't even done the scariest stuff yet. So how do you feel about that? Nervous. Si. Es Pacito. Screaming. Hahaha. Hahaha. Screaming. So this is challenge number two. Sandboarding. Are you up for it? I thought the first dune was pretty scary. This is even steeper. How was it? Woo! Woo Hoo! Hahaha. Laughing and screaming. I'm going. Oh, my gosh. Oh my gosh. Screaming. How was it? I broke my shoe in the process. Hahaha. We suffered one casualty today. My shoe didn't make the third run. Well they say, if you don't do something scary every day you're not really living. So, I think this qualifies. It was so much fun but completely terrifying at the same time. I think I screamed the whole way. Just me screaming. That is the soundtrack to this. What was more terrifying - the dune buggy or going down head first on the sandboard. Both. Both are equally terrifying. Like you have no control over either of them. But highly recommended if you come to Peru. Do it. So for the three of us to do a private tour it was 50 Soles per person which works out to roughly $50 total. And we've got an awesome driver. If they want to go with you how can they find you? Speaking in Spanish. This is part of our Travel in Peru series. We're making a series of videos showcasing Peruvian culture, Peruvian arts, Peruvian foods, Peruvian religion, Peruvian cuisine and Peruvian people.

We also cover off-the-beaten-path outdoor activities you won't find in a typical Porto tourism brochure, Porto itinerary or Porto city tour also known as Oporto, Portuguesa. 10 Things to do in Porto, Portugal Travel Guide Video Transcript: (OPORTO) Lisbon is beautiful, but Porto is magical. We arrived in Porto with our taxi driver’s words still ringing in our ears, and we’re happy to say, the city did not disappoint! Our time in Porto was spent sipping on Port wine, soaking in the views across the Douro River, wandering through the hilly streets, and marvelling at buildings covered in blue tiles. In this travel guide, we’re going to share a little bit of Porto’s magic with you, and also show you some of the things you too can see, eat, and drink when you visit Porto! Known as the Chapel of Souls, this church is covered in tiles that represent moments in the life of Saint Francis of Assisi and Saint Catherine. This bookstore is a feast for the eyes. The bookstore was even frequented by JK Rowling when she taught English in Porto, and it’s reported to have been an inspiration in her Harry Potter series. We continued our walk downhill until we reached the São Bento Train Station. Porto Cathedral is one of the oldest landmarks in the city with cloisters where the walls are covered in blue tiles. We reached the neighbourhood of Ribeira, which sits right on the shores of the Douro River. This neighbourhood is lined with many sidewalk cafes, bars, and restaurants, so it’s a nice place to rest your legs and do a bit of people watching. Feeling hungry we wandered down some of the back streets until we found a small restaurant serving up local specialities. We made time for one more attraction: the Church of Saint Francis. The Bridge we had all been waiting for was Dom Luis the first Bridge, which spans the Douro River. The lower deck carries regular traffic with narrow walkways for those on foot, and the upper deck is reserved for pedestrians and the metro lines. For the best views of Porto, you need to walk the upper deck! There was only one thing on our minds: visit one of the many wineries that line this side of the river! We ended up walking into Croft for a wine tasting without need for an appointment, and this turned out to be one of our favourite activities in Porto! Filled to the brim with port wine, cheese and chocolate, we enjoyed a light stroll along the Douro River, watching the boats bob in the water. That’s a wrap for our visit to Porto! We hope you guys enjoyed following along and that you got a few ideas for your own trip. If you have any other suggestions of fun things to do in and around Porto, feel free to share those with travellers in the comments below.

After several trips to Italy, we finally managed to visit our biggest oversight: the capital! From wandering through Roman ruins to devouring pizza, and climbing up lookout points to feasting on gelato, in this travel guide, we’re going to share with you 20 things to do in Rome, Italy: We reached Roscioli which was the best pizza in Rome. Pizzas are served by the weight and we sampled 7 different pizza slices. We stopped at Largo di Torre Argentina an archaeological site home to four different temples containing parts of the portico of Pompey. It was a short walk to the Pantheon, a former Roman temple turned church, which dates back to the year 125 AD. The Pantheon boasted the world’s largest cupola up until the 15th century, and it is still the largest unreinforced concrete dome in existence to this day making it one of the greatest architectural achievements by the ancient Romans. If you want to find the best gelato, look for colours that are muted with small batches. One of the many things to do in Rome, was to visit the Trevi Fountain. This is the largest Baroque fountain in the city. Rome’s most famed attraction is the Colosseum and its surrounding ruins. We started our visit on Palatine Hill, the most central of Rome's seven hills. What visitors see today are the ruins of the Palace of Domitian, a 1st-century complex, which served as the main imperial palace for 300 years. We continued to the Roman Forum. This square was the centre of ancient Roman life, with government buildings, temples, and markets. We reached the Colosseum, which was the largest amphitheatre ever built and could hold an estimated 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. Walking through the Vatican Museum was more overwhelming than enjoyable. We visited Vatican City to climb St. Peter’s Basilica for views of Rome. Castel Sant’Angelo was commissioned by the Roman Emperor Hadrian as a mausoleum for himself and his family. Villa Borghese is the 3rd largest public park in Rome with gardens, villas, and ponds with views of the city overlooking Piazza del PO-polo, the people’s square. That concludes our tour of Rome showcasing the many things to do in Rome on your own trip.

Taking the train in Germany from Frankfurt to Berlin
 
02:50
When we boarded our train in Frankfurt bound for Berlin it was apparent we were no longer in Kansas (and by Kansas, I mean Thailand). Modern, clean and impeccably on time, we boarded the train at exactly 17 minutes after the hour as printed on our tickets. Although our ticket was in Euros and not Baht, I instantly felt more relaxed. For new readers, you may not realize we derailed on our Thai train ride bound from Bangkok to Chiang Mai. GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ For just 10 Euros more total, we decided to put on our fancy pants and upgrade our seats from regular to first class. Sitting in our private compartment with a sliding glass door we had the entire six seats all to ourselves. Leaning back and reclining in a chair I alternated between sleeping, working on my computer and peering outside the window to enjoy the scenic German countryside. Given the level of comfort we experienced, it was almost a little shocking when our four hour train ride ended abruptly in Berlin. It might sound crazy but I almost wanted to stay on board. This was fun. Having just arrived in Germany from Thailand, we were still dealing with jet lag when we arrived at the train station in Frankfurt. Our time in Asia has officially expired. We are here in Europe and we're starting our European adventures. Right now we're in the Frankfurt train station taking the train all the way to Berlin. We can't wait to get on board. We are in a fancy little compartment here en route to Berlin. When we were booking our tickets we saw they had a special and it was only an additional ten Euros to travel in first class. We figured since it was a pretty long trip that we would splurge a little. Now we have this whole compartment to ourselves. Check it out. Traveling by train really allowed us to see the contrast between countryside and urban centers. Some of the highlights included passing by cute little hillside towns, windmills and spotting urban graffiti. What do you have over there? Well, I'm already enjoying my German baked goods. I found a pretzel sandwich with salami and cheese and vegetables. This is my little snack for the trip. The last time we took a train ride was in Thailand and it was third class. We were sitting on hard metallic seats. What a difference this is. This seat I have here you can recline all the way back. It is super comfy. I can't get over just how quiet this train ride is. I'm used to the rattling old Indian and Thai trains. The only other train system that I've taken that is on par with this was the KTX in Korea. This has easily been one of the most comfortable train rides I've ever been on. I can't wait to do more train travel all around Europe: http://nomadicsamuel.com/video-blog/taking-the-train-in-germany This is part of our Travel in Germany series.

TOKYO CAPSULE HOTEL TOUR IN JAPAN | Male vs Female Experience
 
14:06
Today we're giving you a Tokyo Capsule Hotel Tour! For our last night in Tokyo, we booked 2 pods in a super futuristic capsule hotel in the heart of Koreatown. This capsule hotel is called 9 Hours and it is part of a chain of capsule hotels found across Japan, so if you like the look of it, you can experience it across the country! Capsule hotels in Japan used to be male only, and today there are some that are female-only, however, we stayed at one that welcomes both men and women. The only thing to note about staying in a capsule hotel is that there are separate floors for men and women, so if you're a couple, you'll be split on different levels.

So before leaving Tokyo we booked a night at 9 hours. A futuristic capsule hotel that pretty much looks like a spaceship. This pod hotel is located by Shin-Okubo station right in the heart of Korea Town and in this video we're going to share the whole experience with you guys. We are just waiting for the elevator now. The reception is surprisingly on the 8th floor not the first. The check-in process was simple and straight forward. We were each given a card with a qr code which would act as our key for the duration of our stay. We checked out the views of our neighborhood and also learned that the capsules for men and women are on separate floors. This is the part where Sam and I have to go our separate ways. Different floors for men and women. So I'm on the 6th floor and I'm on the 4th. We'll each take our own camera and show you are own experience. Indeed. And we'll meet back here in a bit. I went up to the 6th floor to find my locker and store my belongings. All of the lockers have an overnight kit to make each guest stay at the capsule hotel a little more comfortable. A look inside the bag coming up soon. I also discovered that my suitcase was a little too plump for my locker so some pushing and prodding ensued. And inside I had this little bag already waiting for me. It looks like we have a towel, some slippers and PJs. It looks like we have slippers with the 9 hours logo. We have a towel. We've got some pajamas to put on. This is going to be fun. Oh okay toothpaste. Toothbrush. That is our kit for spending the night at a capsule hotel. Let's actually go check out my capsule. Before going into the dorm with all of the capsules we have to take off our shoes and put on slippers. The Spaceship. Even though it was the middle of the afternoon I was ready to explore my pod. First up a little stretch test to see just how much space there is in one of these capsules. Stretch Test. Not bad. I definitely didn't feel claustrophobic in there so that is a good start. It is time for final thoughts on our first and only capsule hotel experience. Yeah. What did you think? How was your night? We were sleeping in different areas. I had a great sleep. I went to be about 11 pm woke up at five and I slept continuously. Overall I would recommend staying in a capsule hotel but I think just for one night. Yes. I don't think you'd want to be in there for multiple nights. I would agree. I would want to experience it once here in Japan but I don't need to sleep in a capsule for a week or a month. Book a hotel or an apartment or something else. So yeah that is it for now we'll see you guys in the next video. Bye. This is part of our Travel in Japan video series showcasing Japanese food, Japanese culture and Japanese experiences. Music by Artlist: https://artlist.io/Audrey-184699
Viñas Queirolo: Staying overnight at a Peruvian Vineyard in Ica, Peru
 
03:08
After less than a week of putting up with Lima we were itching at the chance of escaping the hustle and bustle of the city in search of something more laid back. Just kidding. However, when the opportunity to visit a Peruvian Vineyard in Ica was presented to us by Audrey's Uncle and Aunt, we jumped at the opportunity. The private property we ended up staying on was called Viñas Queirolo. This massive Peruvian vineyard was our playground for the weekend. We spent several hours exploring the vineyards, riding our bicycles along the dirt paths and driving to reach scenic higher vantage points. The rest of the time we sipped on locally produced wine and indulged our taste buds with homemade meals. In a word we felt pampered. It's not often that we pursue this type of travel but when the opportunity presents itself we relish every single moment of it ;) GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ Viñas Queirolo: Staying overnight at a Peruvian Vineyard in Ica, Peru Travel Video Transcript: So good morning from Ica! We are spending the weekend here at a vineyard. It is called Viñas Queirolo. And it is a beautiful property. It has been so nice to get away from the city just for a day. And yeah, we're going to show you around because it is just a beautiful place. So we sampled a lot of wine last night and then we ended up going to bed at like eight thirty because we were exhausted. Which meant we woke up really early this morning. We were actually up at six Am. Woke up to the sound of chirping or hooting owls. So we decided to go out for a bike ride. And yeah, we're just riding around the vineyards and it is really quiet. Really peaceful. And really scenic. So I'm not sure if these grapes are ready or not but I'm going to sample one because they're just hanging there and it is a little tempting. Oh, spider web. Let's take one. I'm just going to rub it clean. It has a little bit of dirt on it. Show me that grape? Mmmm. Those are very sweet. Those are definitely ready. I'm getting eaten alive while I eat my grape. We both are. I think it is time we left the vineyard. Check out my sweet ride. And this over here is just my wine barrel for personal consumption only, of course. So one of the things I love about Spanish style architecture is that you usually have a courtyard right in the middle. So I'm going to show you. Tada. Green space in the middle of your home.

Choripan - Best Street Food in Buenos Aires, Argentina
 
04:34
When it comes to the best street food in Buenos Aires look no further than the choripan. Basically, as simple as chorizo stuffed inside a bread bun it is the ultimate Argentinian street food experience that is friendly on your wallet. To sample Choripán Argentino we headed past Puerto Madero to an area where they had a plethora of street food stalls cooking up all kinds of different Parrilla. If you're in Buenos Aires and seeking out a budget meal we highly recommend checking out this area for a quick bite. GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ Choripan - Best Street Food in Buenos Aires, Argentina Travel Video Transcript: #eatArgentina So I think it is time to get ourselves a Choripán for lunch. El chori era tuyo? Si. Gracias. Tada. Come here. Para llevar. No necesito un plato, pero gacias. Okay, ready. So they have lots of different toppings but the right way to do this is with Chimichurri. So we're going to put lots of that. Let's add it on the bread to make it a little less messy. Pica. Si. Mi gusta picante. Si. Ah, bueno. Maybe a little bit on the meat. They're warning me that it is spicy. This is good. Yeah. All set. So we just got ourselves the quintessential Argentine street food snack. Have a look at this - the Choripan. Yeah, this is the best street food you're going to find in Buenos Aires. Yeah, so choripan gets its name because you basically have chorizo which is a sausage and then you have pan which is your bread. So put the two words together and you've got Choripán. Haha! And we put lots of chimichurri on ours because we like things spicy. So I'm just going to dig right in because this looks so so good. Yeah, we were thinking of getting two but then we saw someone else order. We saw the size of the choripan and we're like you know what we're just going to start with one. Yum. Look at that. Look at all of that sausage. Mmmm. That is so good. Wow. I'm really enjoying this right here. And you know what. You can grab this from a little street food cart. You don't even have to go to a restaurant. Like we're just walking along a park. We saw a whole row of those carts, went up there, they cook it right in front of us. And two minutes later it was ready. I'm going to let you try some Sam. So Sam this is your first time trying choripan on this particular trip. Yeah, I think I had it like a long time ago. Maybe five or six years ago but it has been such a long time that I honestly kind of forget what it tastes like. So this is an exciting moment. Dig right in. Wow. How is that? Yeah, like you said that is a really good quality sausage. A really good Choripán. Yeah. And sorry I should say chorizo. A really good chorizo. And what really makes this good as well is that the quality of bread is high. Yeah, and just before they served it they put the bread on the grill just to kind of soften it up a bit. Give it a bit more you know a smokey flavor as well. A bit more of a smokey flavor. And what do you think of all of the Chimichurri because people were looking at us like woah that is spicy. I think they were doing that because they thought we were you know foreigners and oh man they're making a mistake but we like our food spicy so the chimmichurri gives it an extra kick and I recommend you definitely put on some Chimichurri. Maybe not as much as us but definitely try it. Final thoughts then. What did you think of your choripan? I thought it was amazing. And that is by far the cheapest meal we've had in Buenos Aires since we've been here. That came in total for the one massive Choripan. That came to 25 Pesos. So if you're looking to pickup choripan where can you find it in Buenos Aires? Okay, so there are stands scattered across the city in different neighborhoods but today we are Avenida de Los Italianos which is kind of like Puerto Madero just before you hit the Ecological Reserve. So lots of stands in the area and you can find a lot more than just Choripan. Lots of different types of street food while you're out here. So we highly recommend it. Check it out.

Shopping for custom made dresses in Hoi An, Vietnam | Hoi An Tailors and Custom Designers
 
03:22
In our latest travel video we hop on our bicycles and pedal around the old quarter area of Hoi An, Vietnam in search of custom made dresses for Audrey at the many tailors and custom designers found in and around the central part of town. With over 200 different tailors clustered in Hoi An, it's a rather daunting task to narrow down the selection to just a few different stores. Without a specific shop or store in mind, we had no idea where we'd end up. Luckily, after spending several days exploring Hoi An, a few specific dresses caught Audrey's ever discerning eye. Audrey clearly has a much better eye for this kind of thing than I do ;) GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ When we finally settled on a specific shop Audrey found multiple dresses she liked, but eventually settled on just three to buy. I'm sure it was difficult for her to not walk out with the entire store. I played the role of wonderfully considerate boyfriend holding her bags and carrying our money around with us. To be honest, I had fun watching her shop because I knew she was having the time of her life. The tailor made some adjustments to help the dresses fit perfectly and we ended up paying roughly $18 USD for each dress with a slight discount. I'm sure we could have bargained further; however, we were happy with the price and thought it was a win-win situation. For those shopping in Hoi An for clothes, we recommend visiting several tailors and not feeling overwhelmed by the at times very aggressive nature of the vendors. Being patient and looking around is the key to getting the best deal. It's best not to put down a large deposit on any clothing you purchase as it gives very little incentive for the shop owners to make any potential alterations if needed. Instead pay a minimal deposit and pay the final amount once you've had a fitting and are happy with the end results. Remember to bargain and shop around before making your final decision. With a plethora of stores to choose from taking your time will ensure you get the best quality clothes. Often the prices first quoted are not the ones you end up having to pay - especially if you buy multiple items at the same store. Even if you don't enjoy the back and forth associated with bargaining, you'll be far more respected - even by the shop owners - by doing this: http://nomadicsamuel.com/video-blog/shopping-for-clothes-in-hoi-an Trong video du lịch mới nhất của chúng tôi, chúng tôi nhảy lên xe đạp và đạp xe xung quanh khu vực khu phố cổ Hội An, Việt Nam trong việc tìm kiếm được thực hiện trang phục tùy chỉnh cho Audrey tại nhiều tiệm may và thiết kế tùy chỉnh được tìm thấy trong và xung quanh trung tâm của thị trấn. Với hơn 200 thợ may khác nhau tập trung tại Hội An, đó là một nhiệm vụ khá khó khăn để thu hẹp lựa chọn để chỉ một vài cửa hàng khác nhau. Nếu không có một cửa hàng cụ thể hoặc lưu trữ trong tâm trí, chúng tôi không có ý tưởng mà chúng tôi muốn kết thúc. May mắn thay, sau khi trải qua một vài ngày để khám phá Hội An, một vài trang phục cụ thể bắt gặp ánh mắt bao giờ sành điệu của Audrey. Audrey rõ ràng có một cái nhìn tốt hơn cho loại điều hơn tôi;) Khi chúng tôi cuối cùng định cư trên một cửa hàng cụ thể Audrey tìm thấy nhiều trang phục cô ấy thích, nhưng cuối cùng định cư trên chỉ ba để mua. Tôi chắc chắn đó là khó khăn cho cô ấy để không đi ra với các cửa hàng toàn bộ. This is part of our Travel in Vietnam series.

Chifa: Eating Peruvian Chinese food in Lima, Peru
 
08:46
Chifa, what is referred to as Peruvian Chinese food in Peru, is one of the culinary highlights of Lima. With over 6000 Chifa restaurants in Lima alone you won't be hard pressed to find a place to eat. Aside from Chinatown, you can consider Miraflores where we had our meal. We ended up ordering a huge sampling of food. Below you'll find the complete list: Wantan Frito (fried wontons) Chi Jau Kay o Tipakay (chicken in chop suey sauce) 2 Chaufa de Pollo (chicken friend rice with egg) Chancho Cruyoc (dulce) (sweet and sour pork) Sopa Wantan de Pollo (wanton soup with chicken) Enrollado Primavera (deep-fried spring rolls) GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ Chifa: Eating Peruvian Chinese food in Lima, Peru Travel Video Transcript: #eatPERU So for today's lunch in Lima we are going to be having Chifa. And that is basically Chinese food with a Peruvian twist. So you know how we always visit a country maybe even Canada or the US and you go to a Chinese buffet and you're like mmmm this is delicious and then you go to China and you can't find any of the dishes you had at a Chinese buffet. That is because Chinese food really varies from one country to the next because incorporate you know their spices and their cooking styles. So Peruvian Chinese food is quite distinct. We're going to be eating Chifa which literally means to eat rice. So yeah, we've ordered a lot of food that is going to be coming soon and it should be interesting. Peruvian Chinese food. So our appetizers have arrived. They sure have. And I'm just dividing up the wanton soup. We got chicken wontons. Actually no, we have pieces of chicken here. I'm not sure what is inside the wantans. That is going to be a surprise. So it is chicken plus wontons. Yeah, we're sharing because we ordered a lot of food and I have a feeling I may not be able to finish all of this myself. Okay, so Sam is going to begin with the wanton soup over there. Yes, and if there is one dish that we always tend to order when we get Chinese food, basically anywhere in the world, if wanton soup is on the menu we're ordering it. So I can't wait to try this. These are huge wantons. Yeah, that is a good wanton. Yeah, I'm guessing the filling might have some pork and a little bit of vegetables inside of it. Yeah, and the soup has lots of slices of chicken. Yes, want to show us those? And let's see. What else do we have here. What are these? Because if our wanton soup wasn't enough we also got deep-fried wantons. So we are now making our way over to the mains. Yes, this is called Chancho Cruyoc or as we call it in English sweet and sour breaded pork. Okay, next up we've got a breaded chicken dish. What is that one called? So this one is Chi Jau Kay. Okay. Yeah, so it is like breaded chicken kind of like with a chop suey sauce. It is very light it doesn't have a strong flavor and it is kind of a thicker sauce as well. And I do like it. You can really taste the chicken. The fried breaded chicken. So next up. And no Chifa meal would be complete without fried rice. So we have something called chaufa de pollo. And here is the pollo. You can see the pieces of chicken. Alright, so what did you think of Chifa? Chinese food in Peru. Absolutely loved it. Love Chinese Peruvian food. I think it is some of the best Chinese food I've ever had anywhere. And it just has a very strong influence. There was a lot of Chinese immigrants who came from the province of Guangdong and they brought their cuisine over here. And over time it has become a fusion cuisine with Peruvian influences. So I absolutely love it. And here is a fun fact. In Lima alone there is over 6000 Chifa restaurants. So anywhere you are in this city you can get Chifa. Obviously, one of the best places to get Chifa is Chinatown but you can be anywhere in the city. We're having our meal here in Miraflores. So you can be anywhere in Lima and you can find yourself some awesome authentic Chinese Peruvian food. This is part of our Travel in Peru series. We're making a series of videos showcasing Peruvian culture, Peruvian arts, Peruvian foods, Peruvian religion, Peruvian cuisine and Peruvian people.

Mercado Indio: Shopping for Souvenirs at an Artisan Market in Lima, Peru
 
03:22
With time soon running out on our trip to Peru, we decided to visit the Artisan Market (Mercado Indio) to shop for Peruvian souvenirs to take home as presents for friends and family. The market, located on Petit Thors Avenue, is series of several warehouses with individual shops selling all kinds of different trinkets available for purchase. Wandering through the various aisles, one can't help but notice that many of the items for sale are the same from one store to the next. What can you find in this market? Just about everything. Some of the things we noticed we as follows: Alpaca sweaters, mittens, winter hats (toques), leg warmers, chess games (Incas versus Spaniards), Coca candy, Cocoa tea, jewelry, masks, wooden carvings, figurines. GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ My best advice for those visiting the market is to have a good look around before you decide what to purchase. Be prepared to bargain and potentially walk away. Finding a good deal is more likely if you purchase several items from one particular store where they are more likely to give you a discount. Shopping for Souvenirs at an Artisan Market in Lima, Peru Travel Video Transcript: So we are taking part in Sam's favourite activity today. We are actually going shopping. So we are visiting a place called Mercado Indio which is like a local craft and artisans market, so we're just going to pick up souvenirs and see what we can find. So you can buy all sorts of things here. There is Alpaca sweaters, mittens, leg warmers. You can get little chess games of the Incas versus the Spaniards. You can get Coca candy, coca tea, jewelry. The possibilities are endless. You can seriously spend a few hours just browsing around. I think the cutest thing I've seen so far are the stuffed llamas. I might just bring one to cuddle back home on the plane. So someone has been a busy little shopper over here. What do we have to show? I guess I'll show you my purchases. So I bought a collection of cute little mirrors. Actually they've been triple and quadruple wrapped in paper. The big unveil. Okay, so I got a collection of three different mirrors. I think they're really cute. You can put them up on a wall. So yeah, I got some of those. I also got some Coca candy and some Coca tea. And we're going to shop a little bit more and see what we can find. Right? So I got Coca candy and Coca tea over here. And when I was visiting Machu Picchu five years ago this tea right here helped me to acclimatize to the altitude. So that concludes our afternoon of shopping. If you feel like checking out the market while you're in Lima it is located on Avenida Petit Thoars. This is part of our Travel in Peru series. We're making a series of videos showcasing Peruvian culture, Peruvian arts, Peruvian foods, Peruvian religion, Peruvian cuisine and Peruvian people.

Eating Biltong taste test challenge in South Africa
 
03:27
When visiting a new country there are always 'must have' foods worth trying. In South Africa one of these items is Biltong. Most similar to 'beef jerky' it has a special curing and processing that sets it apart from other forms of dried meat. Come find out if we enjoyed it (or not) as we munch away piece by piece from a brown paper bag outside. GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ Eating Biltong taste test in South Africa Travel Video Transcript: Okay, so a new country, a new taste test. We are in South Africa right now and you can't come to this country and not try Biltong. So that is what I have right here in this brown paper bag. So Biltong is a dried cured meat similar to beef jerky and this is what it looks like. So we got ourselves some beef biltong but apparently you can get different kinds of meats. Like game meat or ostrich. This is cow. And it is quite hard and chewy but it makes a really nice snack, so let's say you're riding the bus or going on a really long trip it is kind of nice to just have a bag full and be munching away. That's what we have been doing for the past few days. So for me Biltong is kind of like premium jerky. And there is three key differences. First off, it is sliced a lot thicker. Secondly, they use vinegar in the curing process along with salt and pepper. Which is a little bit different from regular jerky which doesn't have any vinegar whatsoever. And the third key difference is Biltong is not smoked whereas jerky is. Okay, so the purchasing process? What was awesome is that we went into a kind of like what would be considered a deli that specialized in Biltong. And when we went in there was all of these different kinds of dried meat hanging up in different sections. There was one that was game meat, there was one that was regular, there was a premium kind. I can't remember but there was a forth kind as well. And anyways, what you would do is pick this meat off of a hook and bring it over to these ladies who would then put it through a grinder and it would go into this bag like that. So it was a really cool to be right there involved in the process. And it just made it a lot more special. And the other thing that I really noticed that was a big difference is that the quality of the actual meat itself is a lot better than what comes from say packaged pre-packed stuff you would find in a store. So the word Biltong. What does it mean? I actually had to look this up but now I can tell you. So 'Bil' apparently comes from the Dutch word for rump and 'Tong' means strip or tongue. But contrary to popular belief Biltong is not made from bull's tongue, so don't be afraid to try it because of that. What have you got in your hand over there? Okay, and last but not least we have something called Cabanossi which kind of looks like a dried pepperoni stick. We also picked this up at the same store we got the Biltong. So I'm going to try that. Yeah, so it is kind of like a greasy salami stick. Again, chewy, salty, flavorful. I think it makes a great snack. Which one do you like better? Or do you like them both? I do like them both but this reminds me of salami or like a pepperoni stick so it is something I am familiar with. So I quite enjoy the flavor. One more bite. So when you're visiting South Africa, unless of course you're a vegetarian, be sure to try Biltong. I swear it is pretty much addicting. I can't seem to stop myself over here. This is part of our Travel in South Africa series. We're making a series of videos showcasing South African culture, South African arts, South African foods, South African religion, South African cuisine and South African people.

Picarones: Eating Peruvian Doughnuts for Dessert in Lima, Peru
 
04:09
It´s not every day that we travel and have the opportunity to sample cuisine unique to a specific country. A doughnut is a donut more often than not; however, a Picarone is uniquely Peruvian and as such doesn't translate well in English. Apparently, this Peruvian dessert (and common street food snack) originated during the colonial period. Consisting principally of squash and sweet potato dough it is typically served up in ring formation with a healthy dose of syrup. Often the syrup is either a honey or molasses which is called chancaca. We found it most similar to an airy waffle oversaturated with syrup. The key is to sop it up with as much syrup as possible. Although it comes with several rings it is actually quite a bit lighter in taste and texture than it appears to the eye. If you're wandering the streets of Lima be sure to try one - it's cheap and delicious!

So this afternoon we are at Parque Kennedy and we are here for some dessert. We've been eating like pigs all day long but there is still a bit of room left for a little something sweet, so we're going to try Picarones. Look at this - I already have a bee following me because of the honey. Isn't that amazing? Woah. And we thought about getting two orders. Haha. This will be plenty. Alright, so here we have our dessert. These are Picarones and they are like fried rings. Fried dough made with sweet potato and pumpkin and they have a sweet honey drizzled all over. And they're uniquely Peruvian cuisine. Oh, yes. So I'm just going to go for it and take a bite. Dig right in. Mmmmm. These are so fresh. Wow. Really fluffy and airy. Can you taste that honey? Oh, yeah. I sure can. And like they are so light I've already finished half of one. I understand why they give you five. You can just devour them in a few minutes. And we've got a guest who is interested as well. Hi, Kitty. Hello, Mr. Meowzers. So as I mentioned previously, this is a uniquely Peruvian dish. And as such there isn't an English equivalent. I suppose we could call it a Peruvian doughnut with honey. And so that is what we're going with. And this is my first bite. My first time to ever try this so I am really excited. I am sopping it up in honey. Woo Hoo!. Honey syrup. Let's try this. Oh my gosh. That is so good. You know what it reminds me of? It kind of reminds me of a oversaturated waffle with maple syrup or honey. It's like where you pour like three times as much as you actually need on the waffle and then you eat it. This is what it tastes like right here. Mmmm. I don't mess around when I eat food. What can I say. So this tasty dessert only cost us five Soles. That would be one sole for each donut that we've already eaten. That is pretty affordable actually with the exchange rate it would be about a dollar seventy-five and you do get a lot of food for that. So if you're looking to pair this sweet treat with a little beverage you can get something called Chicha which is a purple corn juice that goes perfectly with it. So there are five of these but only two of us. So who gets that third one? We split it down the middle Sam. Oh, I don't agree with that. Sleepy kitty. Meow. Meow. Meow. Meow. There are hundreds of cats in this park. Look here is another one. Meow. Meow. That was a delicious sweet treat and we're going to be back at this park again very soon to film some more street food. This is part of our Travel in Peru series. We're making a series of videos showcasing Peruvian culture, Peruvian arts, Peruvian foods, Peruvian religion, Peruvian cuisine and Peruvian people.

Our honeymoon in Cuba: Cuba vacation in an all-inclusive resort holiday in Cayo Santa Maria
 
04:29
For our honeymoon we decided to visit Cuba together for the first time to relax at an all inclusive resort at Cayo Santa Maria with Air Canada Vacations. GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ In every sense this was our vacation from travel as we completely went offline. As online workers, it was refreshing knowing we had no access to the internet and that our only immediate concern was to relax and have fun. We spent the majority of our week long stay enjoying the beach. If we weren't splashing and riding waves in the turquoise water we were keeping cool under a sun umbrella or gazebo. Our biggest concern of the day was deciding what to wear as all of our food and drinks were included for the entire week. Whether we wanted to order a pizza at 3 pm or have a buffet lunch or dinner was entirely up to us. Moreover, we had the opportunity to drink all kinds of delicious nonalcoholic and alcoholic beverages such as Pina Colada, Cuba Libre, Cuban Rum, Bucanero, Cerveza Cristal, TuKola Ciego Montero, Cristal Beer, Cuban Beer and Rum and Coke. On afternoons that weren't spent at the beach, we often were hanging out at the pool participating in aqua aerobics, yoga, tai chi or life sized chess. The few times we set our alarms in the morning, we were rewarded with spectacular sunrises and in the evening brilliant sunsets. There was also a small village at the perimeter of our resort where we could pick up Cuba souvenirs such as Cuban cigars and Cuban paintings. For nighttime entertainment we enjoyed live Cuban music and dance performances including Cha-cha, Mambo, Rumba and Salsa. The week flew by and this is the type of Cuban vacation I've always dreamed off. If we reach a point where we feel stressed out or in need of a digital detox we'll certainly considering coming back to Cuba again. Our honeymoon in Cuba: Cuba vacation in Cayo Santa Maria This week Sam and I are in Cuba on our honeymoon. Woo! So yeah, we're going to be spending a full week here at an all inclusive. We are staying in Cayo Santa Maria and we are going to be showing you what it is like to just take a week off, relax and not really travel. I think it is beach time. After a year and a half of round the world travels, we wanted our honeymoon to be very relaxed and easy going. This was very unlike us, but we didn't plan any side trips or run around touring attractions. Our trip to Cuba was all about enjoying the beach, drinking pina coladas, and cooling off in the pool. The Caribbean is home to some spectacular beaches, but we think Cuba may have the best of them all! So it is time to play life sized chess. I think I can probably beat Sam. So how was that easy victory of yours? Huh? Let's count how many pieces I have left. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven. And I only have my King. That is so rude. You didn't let your new bride win. Domination. Domination. Cuban singing, dancing and performing. The most work we did was set the alarm clock to go catch a beach sunrise. One of the best part of being at an all inclusive resort is the endless supply of drinks. Rum and coke. Pina Colada. Bucanero. Cola Ciego Montero Cristal So it must be over forty degrees today and the sea is a bit choppy so it is a perfect day for the pool. The pool was the heart of the action. By 10 am the crowd had descended for an endless flow of rum. There were also lots of fun activities like water aerobics to keep everyone entertained. While we didn't leave the resort, we did make some time to pick up a few souvenirs to take back home. Cuban rum, anyone? And aside from that, we just spent more time at the beach! The waters were so calm and inviting, that we often spent the whole day there just reading book and enjoying the beauty of it all. And that's a little taste of our Cuban honeymoon. If you're looking for a relaxed sun destination, then Cuba won't disappoint! Cayo Santa María This is part of our Travel in Cuba series. We're making a series of videos showcasing Cuban culture, Cuban arts, Cuban foods, Cuban religion and Cuban people.

Like many world capitals, this is a city that never sleeps, and on my most recent visit, I got to experience that firsthand. My challenge was to discover 24 unique experiences in London – one for every hour of the day! From secret speakeasies to living room concerts, and whimsical afternoon teas to bustling food markets, I scoured the city to bring you the following 24 hours in London! Let’s begin. I skipped breakfast to visit a coffee shop in Hampstead! With a bit of caffeine in my system, I continued on to my 9:00 am activity which was walking up Parliament Hill in Hampstead Heath with a great lookout point of the city skyline. Set in a former power station it is home to the national collection of British art from 1900 to the present. I got off at Westminster Station and walked over to Horse Guards Parade for my next activity. If you’re visiting with kids there’s a section inside the museum where you can try on different uniforms. Cruising down the Thames is a classic way to experience London while hearing interesting London facts that you won’t find in any guidebook. With hundreds of food stalls selling everything. What can you do in the middle of the afternoon in London? I made my way over to the West End for a show. Having afternoon tea at the Sanderson was like stumbling down a rabbit hole and being transported to the world of Alice in Wonderland. Everything from the menu to the teapots to the ‘drink me’ potions was just right! The RISEGallery has been doing a lot of work to help connect local artists with property owners, and this has resulted in some beautiful murals. I attended my first Late where museums and art galleries stay open after hours, offering extended admission or putting on special events. I got to experience Sofar Sounds, which is a pop-up concert that takes place in people’s living rooms. It’s not until 24 hours before the event that you are emailed the address and the names of the artists performing that night. Then at 11pm, for a bit of live music, it was onwards to The Blues Kitchen in Brixton, where they do barbecue, bourbon, and blues. Flight Club is a bar that puts a twist on the traditional English pub by adding modern darts into the equation. With the clock striking one, my next stop transported me to London in the 1940s. This bar was set in an attic and it had a bit of speakeasy vibe. There mixing all sorts of fun cocktails. We checked out London’s nightlife scene at 3 am with dance moves at KOKO. Last but not least, the final activity of my 24 hours in London was breakfast at Duck & Waffle. Located on a 40th floor, this restaurant has amazing views of Central London and they are open 24 hours a day. And that’s a wrap for my 24 hours in London! I hope you enjoyed following along and that also got a few ideas for your own trip. As you can see, this city has plenty to offer, no matter the time of day. Wishing you happy travels and see you next time! Music by DJ Quads: https://soundcloud.com/aka-dj-quads

For today's video we are going to take you inside a Korean supermarket. So exciting stuff guys. Yeah, we're going to give you a complete tour of one of the most popular supermarkets (슈퍼) in all of Korea. The chain is called Lotte Mart (롯데마트) and we're visiting the one at the Seoul station (서울역) branch. And it is especially big so we're going to give you a full tour show you what you can buy inside of there. So I know going inside a Korean supermarket (한국 슈퍼마켓) may seem like a bit of an unusual video but the reason we wanted to do this is because they carry a lot of products that you wouldn't normally find in a North American supermarket so we just want to show you guys those differences in case you're thinking of visiting or thinking of moving here. We're going to show you what you can expect to find in a Korean supermarket. So we have come to my favorite aisle. We are in the tuna (참치) and spam (스팸) aisle. And this is super popular in Korea. I remember when I taught English here one year for Christmas I got this giant case of canned tuna and canned spam. So apparently it makes for a pretty cool gift. So there is also an entire aisle dedicated to kimchi (김치). An entire aisle section just for Korean fermented cabbage. Kimchi (김치) products. And out of all noodle cups you can get Shin Ramyun (신라면) is probably my favorite and that is right here. Yeah. Eight hundred Won (원) for a giant bowl there. We are now in the frozen aisle. Yeah, and what you can get at the frozen aisle are Korean mandu (만두) so that is Korean style dumplings. I'll open that up in here. Here is an example of a value pack. You can get three of them in one. Pretty cool. And they come with different fillings. You can get kimchi (김치), you can get gogi (고기) ones which are meat and you can get a whole bunch of different flavors too. So that concludes the shopping excursion. Yeah, we gave you guys a pretty good of the food section. Now there is especially in that department store there is actually a lot more you can buy. There is clothes. The entire second floor. There is a whole second level that we didn't even go to. There is electronics and things like that. We just showed you guys the food and this is one of the big three grocery department stores you can find in Seoul, Korea. So there is this one Lotte Mart (롯데마트). There is also E-Mart (이마트) and there is also Homeplus (홈플러스). This is part of our Travel in South Korea video series showcasing Korean food, Korean culture and Korean cuisine.

21 Things to do in Fredericton New Brunswick Canada | Attractions Travel Guide
 
10:43
In our latest travel video we showcase 21 things to do in the capital city of Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada in this top attractions travel guide. Fredericton is a city that offers culture vultures numerous historic buildings and attractions including top notch museums. For the adventure traveler or sports enthusiast extensive bike trails and the St John River offer endless exercise opportunities. This summer we travelled out to Fredericton, New Brunswick to visit family. With a few weeks in town, we decided to make a little video guide to give you a taste of Atlantic Canada. Here's a look at 21 things you can do around the city: GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ 1) Changing of the Guard 2) Haunted Hike at night 3) Kayaking the Saint John River 4) Government House 5) King's Landing 6) Old Train Bridge (Walking Bridge) 7) Waterloo Row 8) Farmers Market 9) Biking along the Nashwaak Trail 10) Odell Park 11) Highland Games 12) Historic Garrison District 13) Christ Church Cathedral 14) Legislative Building 15) Beaverbrook Art Gallery 16) Exercise along the St John River 17) Fine Art Gallery 78 18) Lighthouse on the Green 19) Science East 20) University of New Brunswick Campus 21) The Playhouse Visiting King's Landing was like travelling back in time. We got to see the interior of old homes, churches, and barns from the 1800s, and for those looking to get their hands dirty, there was the option of pitching in with some of the farm work. The garrison district is the historic and cultural heart of Fredericton. This is where you can catch free performances, join heritage walking tours, and watch the changing of the guard. The Lighthouse on the Green stands on the banks of the St. John River. Though it once helped guide fishermen to shore, today the lighthouse is a popular restaurant where you can enjoy some seafood or even cool down with an ice cream. The nice thing about Fredericton is that you're never too far from nature. The city has many walking trails and biking paths that are easily accessible, and that means people spend a lot of time outdoors. This former railway bridge is now popular with pedestrians. It has great views of the St. John River and the 2 university campuses that sit up on the hill. Waterloo Row is one of the prettiest streets in the city. It is lined with historic homes and mansions that look over the river. If you happen to be in town over the weekend, be sure to check out the Farmers' Market for some delicious eats! The Nashwaak Trail is part of an extensive trail system and it's great for either walking or biking. We managed to spot quite a bit of wildlife during our outing, including a Great Blue Heron, a beaver, and lots of chipmunks. Gallery 78 is the oldest private art gallery in New Brunswick and it hosts exhibitions throughout the year. Christ Church Cathedral has a very active music schedule. During the summer months they host choirs and recitals. Admission is by donation with the proceeds going back into the community. The Legislative Building is the home to the Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick. Guided visits must be arranged in advance. For art lovers, there's the option of visiting the Beaverbrook Art Gallery. This gallery features the work of both Canadian and international artists. Odell Park is a massive park located in the middle of Fredericton. It has many trails that run through the forest and some of the trees there are believed to be over 400 years old. It's a nice green escape and the perfect place to exercise in the summer. The changing of the guard is a ceremony not to be missed. You can watch guards re-enact a drill ceremony to the beat of a piper and drummer. For a spooky look at the city's past, you can join a haunted hike that takes you on a walking tour of Fredericton after dark. The university of New Brunswick and St. Thomas University have a shared campus with beautiful grounds. Even if you're not a student, the campus is worth a visit. If you're looking to catch a performance, then head down to the Playhouse. They host all sorts of music, dance, and theatre productions. And that's a little glimpse of Fredericton. We really enjoyed our summer visit to the city, and we hope you'll have the chance to check it out too! Music in this video courtesy of Audio Network

This week we are in the Spanish capital and we are going to show you twenty five of the best things to do in the city. Final thoughts on your time in Madrid. Well, I really enjoyed the city. And I really found that it is super walk-able. We were here for 10 days and we hardly had to take the metro at all. We just took the bus once when we were visiting the stadium but the rest of the time we were able to walk wherever we needed to go. And also I think it is a great city for art lovers. There are so many galleries and museums to check out. And a lot of them are free in the evening. So keep that in mind. And now it is your turn. What did you think of Madrid? You know what? I absolutely loved Madrid. It is a city that just really clicked with me. We have a lot of friends that are living here long term and prior to coming here I had no idea like why would someone want to come to Madrid? Now I totally get it. I love the culture, I love the food, I love the nightlife. Everything is really cheap. I go to the grocery store and I can get a one liter thing of wine for just over a Euro. It is just a really affordable fun city to be in. And it is somewhere I hope I have a chance to come back to again soon. And that is a wrap of our time in Madrid! We had a splendid time and were truly sad to say goodbye to the city, but that just means we'll have to come back again. If you have any travel tips for Madrid, feel free to share those in the comments below. This is part of our Travel in Spain series. We're making a series of videos showcasing Spanish culture, Spanish arts, Spanish foods, Spanish religion, Spanish cuisine and Spanish people.

Causa: Eating our favorite Peruvian potato dish in Lima, Peru
 
05:08
Come join us for a meal in Lima, Peru as we sample our favorite Peruvian potato dish - Causa. It is basically mashed yellow potatoes mixed with chili, oil, onion and lime including fillings of avocado, chicken and/or ceviche (Causa Acevichado) which is typically served cold with olives and hard boiled eggs. In Lima you can find one called Causa Limeña. It is often a shared appetizer but eaten on its own it can be a main. GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ Causa: Eating our favorite Peruvian potato dish in Lima, Peru Travel Video Transcript: #eatPERU So it is time for another food video and today we are going to be trying something that is called Causa. Causa, it is kind of like a shepperds pie if you haven't tried it before, it is made with yellow mashed potato and you can get lots of different fillings. So we've ordered two different varities and that should be coming soon and it is going to be delicious. I love the causa. And while we wait. While we wait, while we wait. We're going to have our favorite snack - Canchita - which is the fried corn with salt on top of it. Ah, I'm loving this stuff. And I'm always amazed by the size of these kernels. Seriously, it never gets old. Look at that. I know. They are gigantic. Massive. They're like twice the size of what we're used to having back home in Canada. So the causa has arrived and it is a thing of beauty. How excited are you for your food, Sam? Yeah, it looks like artwork. I almost feel guilty tucking in to it. Almost. Okay, so let's talk about the key ingredients that make up causa. So you have your yellow potato, lime and aji which is the yellow hot pepper. Yeah. In terms of fillings you can have lots of different ones. So Sam went with the classic. Mine has chicken and you can also see that there is some avocado here on the side as well. And that looks like some mayo sauce on top. I'm just going to dig right in. I'm going right to the bottom. It is like cutting into a tower. And with this particular causa it is really salty. You can tell they've added a lot of salt to it. But it just like, when you get that much yellow potatoes, it is just oh man it is so good. It is almost like having Mom's mashed potatoes back home or something but with much better dressings. With the chicken and the sauce and the avocado. Okay and let's talk about the chicken. Is it shredded chicken? Like the one we had in Aji de Gallina or is it chopped. It is shredded chicken. One more bite for quality control. Research purposes. That is good stuff. And I am beyond excited for mine because I saw Causa Acevichado on the menu and that is a ceviche causa. Look at that. So I've got my fish, a little bit of fish that has been cooked in lime. I have my red onions, I have my hot chili peppers and of course my yellow mashed potato with a bit of mayo. Super fancy over there. I know. And if you know how much I love ceviche this is just the perfect dish for me really. The best of both worlds? It is so good. The lime. So much lime. And it is so tangy. And a little spicy. With those little pieces of red chili. I do like mine but I can't leave this restaurant without at least trying the one with ceviche too. Well, what do you think? Wow. I've never had causa with ceviche so this is a really unique experience for me. I love it. I mean I think I prefer. I do prefer yours to mine. Yeah. And another thing I love about this dish, about causa, is all of the colors. Like look at that. The bright yellows, the purple from the onion, the red. We've got lots of greens. It is just such a colorful meal. It is an attractive meal. It is art on a plate. Art on a plate. There you go. Okay, so it is now time for price point. So in terms of price point that cam to 45 Soles which is $13 US dollars. Not bad value. We're both leaving really full. And what is kind of funny is that this is typically served as an appetizer not as a main. But if you eat it one per person it can totally be a main. It is so filling. It is potatoes. It is heavy. If you're in Lima or Peru definitely check out causa. It is something we highly recommend.

Taiwanese Breakfast in Taipei, Taiwan
 
10:15
When it comes to breakfast in Taipei, Taiwan it is taken very seriously. Waking up before sunrise we headed over to Fu Hang Dou Jiang (阜杭豆漿) to stand in line with the crowds before placing an order of deep-fried dough stick (Youtiao - 油條 - 油条), sandwich with an omelet (Shao Bing - 燒餅 - 烧饼) and soybean milk (Dou Jiang - 豆漿). The one we really wanted to try but didn't order was Dan Bing (蛋餅). Come find out what the breakfast fuss is all about in Taipei (臺北市). Directions to Fu Hang Dou Jiang (阜杭豆漿): 100, Taiwan, Taipei City, Zhongzheng District, Section 1, Zhongxiao E Rd, 108號 (Get off at Shandao Temple Station (善導寺站) and take exit 5) GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ Taiwanese Breakfast in Taipei, Taiwan Travel Food Video Transcript: Alright guys. We are up before the sun today and it is for a really good reason. We've been hearing about Taiwanese breakfast at this one particular spot and we're going to go check it out. The MRT just opened and now it is time to go. Yes, apparently this restaurant opens at five thirty in the morning but the MRT didn't start running until 6 am so we had to wait. Now we can finally venture out. Exit five. How excited are you for breakfast? Well now that I've actually finally woken up I'm quite excited. Ready to chow down. Chow down. Let's go. So apparently we're not the only ones. So we found the restaurant. It is called Fu Hang Dou Jiang (阜杭豆漿). Hopefully I am pronouncing that right. And we had to wait in line about twenty to thirty minutes and that was at six thirty in the morning. And of course we have two bowls of soy milk because that is what they specialize in and that is called Dou Jiang (豆漿). One is hot and one is cold. One is like piping hot. This one is like boiling so we're going to be sampling those. Let's have a look. So yeah, it is just soy milk. I've never drank milk with a spoon but that is a first. So we asked for both of our soy milks to be sweetened so that is good. Okay so we're going to break into the mystery roll. Yeah, so take a look down here. I'm just going to snap it in half. It feels dense I know there is definitely something inside. Oh, woah. Oh it is super syrupy. Okay. Woah. Maybe that wasn't the best idea. Haha. Is it sweet? It is very sweet. So next up we're having what I believe is the Shao Bing (燒餅 - 烧饼) so it looks like a sandwich but it is basically a wheat cake and it is stuffed with egg. An omelette, chives. Yeah, it looks like a sandwich. Yeah. This last one is either Yutiah or Youtiao (油條 - 油条) please let me know in the comments. We're butchering these names I'm sure pretty fiercely. Um, at first glance it kind of reminds me of a bit of a porras that we had in Spain. Like those giant sized kind of churros like things. Yeah. And I have to say it is like super light in the hand. It looks a lot bigger than what it is. It is really flimsy and light. So I'm going to give that a try. So it is like a deep-fried dough stick and all we need right now is that thick Spanish hot chocolate and we're set. Oh. Okay. It tastes like a bit greasy and salty as opposed to being sweet. So are you feeling ready to take on Taipei after that breakfast? Yeah, I've got my sugar high. I've got you know like my saltiness with the egg. So I'm ready to go. And in terms of price point that was a hundred and thirty five Taiwanese dollars so it worked out to just over two US dollars per person. So really cheap, really tasty food. And yeah, I can see why there is a big line. And the one thing I wish we could have tried was something I think called Dan Bing (蛋餅) which is basically a pancake with the omelet stuffed inside. We noticed some other people having that and we're like ooh that looked good. And I also saw people having some kind of porridge that I just didn't know the name of it. Yeah, anyways we ate enough. I mean we're full now but yeah there is other things to try though. Yeah, so if you want to find this place straight out of exit five and here you've got the market. You just go down this way up to the second floor and you'll see the lines. Yeah, and don't forget to come early. Yeah.

I would say that if you really want to visit the art galleries, the museums and all of the main attractions you should probably avoid summer and like either come in the spring or the fall or even winter. Because the lines are insane and sometimes you have to wait like an hour and a half or two hours. So how about you? What are your final thoughts on Paris? So my finals thoughts is obviously Paris is one of the top cities in the world in terms of attractions. There is going to be garbage, there is going to be lines, there is going to be some areas that are a bit of an eyesore. But there is also a lot of beauty and there is also a lot to do here.

We are visiting one of the most beautiful bookstores in the world. This is called El Ateneo Grand Splendid. This place actually used to be a theater and then it was converted into a movie theatre and now it is a bookstore. And it is absolutely beautiful. So what else can you tell us about this beautiful bookstore. Well, apparently the Guardian newspaper listed this as the number two most beautiful bookstore in the world. Now the question is what is number 1? We don't know. We don't know. We need to go back and Google that. Or maybe someone can answer that in the comments below. Yes, if you know answer please in the comments below. That would be fantastic. So considering this YouTube channel is all about travel and food I think we need to go find the travel section. And look what I've found - Canada! Because Canada is all about polar bears and igloos, right Sam? Yeah, we in fact lived in an igloo before we started traveling. Yeah, we totally did. Totally did. Okay, so this section where we're standing now would have been where they had like the rows of seats facing this stage which is over that way. Um, but when they did the conversion they had to remove all of those seats and they put rows of books instead. Books. Um, and also the stage where they would have had performances has been turned into a cafe, so if you follow me around the corner I can show you that. It was a lot of fun visiting here. This place is very unique, very beautiful, very classy and elegant. And if there is one tip I'm going to add is definitely come and a meal at the cafe. The food is fantastic. The cakes are decadent and drinks are really tasty too. Yes, especially the brownie cake. Try the brownie cake. It has massive amounts of dulce de leche on top of that.

Foreigner Tries Indian Street Food in Mumbai, India | Juhu Beach Street Food Tour
 
14:58
Come join us as a foreigner tries Indian Street Food in Mumbai, India at Juhu Beach for the first time. Having heard about legendary Mumbai Street Food at Juhu Beach I decided to spend my first day in Mumbai, India sampling delicious Indian cuisine and popular Indian snacks prepared for locals. I've always dreamed of trying Indian Street Food in Mumbai and I finally had my opportunity. All in all what makes an Indian Street Food Tour so appealing is that you can alternate between savory, spicy and sweet dishes to your heart's content without spending a fortune. In fact, many Mumbai Street Food items cost only between ₹50 to 160₹ Rupees meaning you can pick things up for considerably less than $1 US dollars and at a higher end just over $2 US dollars. The following is a list of the Indian Street Food items I'd tried during my taste test tour at Juhu Beach Chowpatty: 1) Pav Bhaji - (₹160 or $2.23 USD) A thick vegetable curry of smashed spiced vegetables served with a bun soaked in butter (ghee). The dish originated in Mumbai in the 1850s for textile mill workers. 2) Pani Puri - (₹30 or $0.42 USD) Panipuri is a round hollow puri (fried crisp) filled with flavored chutneys and chilies. It served as a set of 6. 3) Kulfi Falooda Rabdi (₹120 or $1.67 USD) Chopped up Kulfi (traditional Indian ice cream) served in a bowl with rose syrup, jellies, milk, cashews and vermicelli. It is a very sweet and refreshing dessert to help cool you down. 4) Ice Gola (₹50 or $0.70 USD) Shaved ice with syrup on top.

Given how popular street food is in Taiwan you'll never run out of things to try and on this final food rampage we focus only upon things we've yet to try at the previous two Taipei night markets. List of the Taiwanese street food at the night market in Taipei, Taiwan: 1) Taiwan shrimp stick with cheese 2) Chinese Scallion pancake (蔥油餅 - 葱油饼) 3) 火焰骰子牛 - Flaming Beef Dices 4) Papaya Milk Smoothie (木瓜牛奶) 5) Taiwan Prince Cheese Potato (王子起司馬鈴薯) 6) Taiwanese Coffin Bread Toast with tapioca pearls from Tainan (府城棺材板) GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ Taiwanese Street Food taste test at Ningxia Night Market (寧夏夜市) in Taipei, Taiwan Travel Food Video Transcript: Well good evening, good evening. Tonight the street food adventures continue and we are going to be eating at the Ningxia Night Market (寧夏夜市). So this is our third night market here in Taipei (臺北市) and I feel like there is still a lot of Taiwanese street food we haven't tried. So we're going to be on a mission to try a whole bunch of new stuff tonight. And we've already found our first snack of the night. Tell us. Yeah, so if you look down here we are having a breaded cheese and shrimp stick apparently. And there is a lot of Taiwanese seafood snacks that we haven't tried yet so we're just diving right in to that tonight on our third and final street food video here. Alright, so it is fresh out of the deep-fryer. And I must say that holding it in the hand I mean it looks really skinny and maybe a little flimsy but it is actually fairly substantial. Like there is a bit of weight to it in my hands. So I'm really excited for this snack. I've tried it before and it has a few different names. I've heard it be called a Chinese style pizza (蔥油餅 - 葱油饼). Yeah, or green onion pancake (蔥油餅 - 葱油饼). I would compare it more to a roti. It is like this fluffy um flatbread. And look at that. You can see the green onions in it. Yeah, it has green onions and you can also get it with different fillings. So watching this next snack be prepared was quite the spectacle and a little bit scary. Ha, so if you look down here you can basically see that it is cubed meat (火焰骰子牛). And it was cooked by what I like to call the flame-thrower. Hahaha. Yeah. So he's like grilling it but at the same time he's using the torch to cook it faster. So I'm just going to take my little stick here. My massive toothpick and try it. Super juicy. I wouldn't call it tender. It is a bit of a fatty meat. Yeah. But lots of flavor. So we've had a lot of savory treats so far so getting a little thirsty. So we noticed a place selling papaya milk so we're going to give that a try here. Um, I like that it is sweet but it doesn't seem like that added a lot of sugar or any at all. You taste the natural fruit flavor and the milk. This one was my pick. I saw they had baked potatoes. And I ordered the double cheese potato (王子起司馬鈴薯). So she put what looks kind of like a cheese whiz. Like a melted cheddar. Yeah, and then on top parmesan. So we are now ready to move on to dessert and we are having something called Coffin bread (府城棺材板) and I've been told this is a dessert that originated in Southern Taiwan in a particular city. Can't remember the name now. Um but it is called Coffin bread (府城棺材板) because the toast is carved into a little coffin and then it is filled. And you can choose all sorts of fillings. We chose the tapioca pearls. So final thoughts from this market. We ate pretty well but in comparison to the other two we visited previously. Shilin (士林夜市) and Raohe (饒河夜市)) I would say this one has a little bit less variety to choose but I feel like this one is a little bit more traditional. How do we get there? So to get to this Taipei Night Market you're going to take the red line. You're going to get off at Shuanglian (雙連站). Take exit one, take a left. You're going to walk down about two or three blocks and you're going to see it on your left hand side. You can't miss it.
