What I Learned My First Day of Vagabonding

1 Jul

So I just moved out of my house in North Carolina with my girlfriend and headed out to LA for a traveling adventure. First stop was Vidcon, a YouTube event in Anaheim, California. I haven’t missed a Vidcon yet so this was my 5th year going. I had a great time meeting lots of viewers, making new friends and seeing old friends. YouTube events always inspire me to get motivated again to start really pushing myself to do more and better videos.

But now thats its over….the adventure starts. My girlfriend and I are Vagabonding in LA from June 29 until around mid August when we go to another event in Seattle, Washington called Vloggerfair. There’s really no telling where we will go after that. Vagabonding, for those that don’t know, is basically long term traveling so that you can experience the world on your own terms. We have no real plans as to where we will go, stay or do on this adventure but I’m excited to see what it brings.

Our first stop after Vidcon was the Hollywood Inn Express on Hollywood Blvd where we split a room with a couple of guys we met at the event who do slow motion video. You can check it out here – http://youtube.com/beyondslowmotion. Other than the beds feeling like I was sleeping on concrete, it wasn’t that bad. I decided to take some pictures…

I’ve learned two things after one day of Vagabonding: People are nicer than you think and everyone wants to travel after hearing what we are doing, but they think it’s impossible for them. Nothing is out of your reach. If you want something, stick your hand out and GRAB IT!

…..Oh, I also got this funny pic while in the pool today.


I’m sure there are spelling and grammatical errors butt its 6am so I’m gonna end this here. I’ll make another post soon to keep you guys updated or share some pics. Thanks for reading! 😀

  6. I watch the vlogs everyday and I love them! I can’t remember when I started watching them, but once I started I couldn’t stop. I like that you have a blog now because its like a vlog just without video. You can post here whenever you can’t post a vlog, for whatever reason, and let everyone know what’s going on.
    Keep making the vlogs!
    P.S.- You make vlogs, now you have a blog. What’s next?

  7. This is awesome!!! Excited to follow your life on here in written form in addition to continuing to follow your life on YouTube!!! Just another avenue to show your thoughts and experiences with the world, at least those who are willing to listen/watch!
