I personally love watching videos be it on youtube or other sites. Recently I’ve been obsessed with watching travel videos on ‘Vimeo’ and ‘Youtube’, and I thought of sharing some of my favourite ones that would inspire all of you and spark a love for travel in those of you who haven’t experienced it yet.
1. The Ridge:
Danny Macaskill is a crazy guy. I mean in a good way, every extraordinary person in this world is a little crazy don’t you agree? This travel video is of him riding on the Culkin mountains. I was at the edge of my bed almost about to fall off each time I watched him go up and down the steep hills. One of my absolute favourite and a must watch. See it to feel it.
2.Timeless in Ladakh:
This is a timelapse video which shows all its beauty. All of us know that Ladakh is a breathtaking place and I bet most of you want to visit the place but are still a little hesitant. This video is so amazingly een made that it will kind of inspire you to visit Ladakh to experience the mind blowing experiences that lie ahead. The clear blue lakes, the beautiful mountains and the night sky, the trees swaying at the touch of the slightest wind, the blue sky, the mysterious monasteries and all the high mountain passes. So, click on the link below and amaze yourself.
3. Around the world in 360 degrees:
Alex Chacon has taken selfies over 600 days in 36+ countries and this video will leave you astonished. It was voted as the most “Epic selfie” ever by CBS and also won an award for ‘best selfie video of 2014′. It shows all the best parts in countries just with the help of a selfie stick.

6. Go Cuba
Go Cuba is a beautiful travel video by Joshua Morin that is posted on Vimeo. It is the first video that i saw on Vimeo and i absolutely loved it and couldn’t help but mention it. It has such a good vibe as people are seen dancing and enjoying themselves. Some parts of the video are very vintage and a very short view on cigar making as well. It totally inspired me to visit Cuba, I hope you will be moved too.
