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 also cover off-the-beaten-path activities you won't find in a typical Edinburgh tourism brochure or Edinburgh, Scotland city tour. 20 Things to do in Edinburgh, Scotland Top Attractions Travel Guide Video Transcript: Our week in Edinburgh was action packed! 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!

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).

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.

The following travel video is a comprehensive list of the best 35 Things to do in Chicago including all of the top Attractions worth visiting and seeing in this complete travel guide for the Windy City. Many people don't realize this but Chicago is a world class city with festivals, arts, entertainment, dining and architecture that can rival any city in North America or even Europe. 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. When you're thinking of destination to travel to in the United States, Chicago should be near the top of your list.

50 THINGS TO DO IN NEW YORK CITY | Top Attractions Travel Guide

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.

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.

Our first impressions exploring Lima, Peru (Miraflores - Larcomar)

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.

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.

We're checking out Barranco which is a very artsy neighborhood. Apparently, this used to be like a bohemian hangout back in the 60s. So we're just going to go explore on foot. We don't really know what to expect but so far we are seeing lots of street art and looks pretty cool. So do you want to tell us your first impressions of Barranco so far? Yeah, the neighborhood is even more colorful than we expected. We've been wandering around for a little while and we've seen tonnes of different restaurants, there is a lot of colorful buildings and there is a lot of really cool street art as well. So we've found a nice little lookout point here, right? Yeah, as you get closer to the boardwalk you have some awesome views and we didn't realize that so many people went to the beach here in Lima. We thought the waters might be too cold but there are a lot of people out in the water enjoying it today. So we have now been walking around Barranco for a while and we have finally come across the main attraction in this neighborhood. We are standing in front of the bridge of sighs. A really romantic spot for young couples. Apparently, this bridge has made lots of appearances in Peruvian songs and poetry. So yeah, lots of romance happening over here. Let's take a walk. So that was a fun little introduction to Barranco. What did you think of the place? Yeah, this neighborhood is a fun, artsy kind of area. We only spent a couple of hours here in the afternoon. It would be really cool to come at night and see what the nightlife is all about. Yeah, they have lots of bars and restaurants worth checking out. Yeah, it definitely seems that way. Yes. 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 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.

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. We're making a series of videos showcasing Canadian culture, Canadian arts, Canadian foods, Canadian religion, Canadian cuisine and Canadian people.

Learning How To Cook Lao Food at Tamarind Lao Cuisine cooking school in Luang Prabang, Laos
 
03:18
Whenever I put on an apron I feel like a bit of a fraud. Lately, we've taken a lot of one day cooking courses including learning how to make Thai food, trying our hand at Vietnamese cuisine and thumbing our way through Khmer delicacies; however, my confidence in the kitchen is not exactly sky high. Regardless, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to try making our favorite Lao dishes when we found out Tamarind (our favorite restaurant in Luang Prabang) offered one day classes. 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/ We were thrilled when our Songthaew, carrying our entire cooking class, pulled up into a tranquil garden setting far away from the city center. Compared to other cooking classes this was aimed at a more advanced level. Our Lao instructor would give a quick demonstration at the display table and then send us off to try our best at recreating the magic ourselves. Audrey certainly kept up to speed whereas I was constantly falling behind. At one point, when were were making a curry sauce for our steamed fish dish 'Mok Pa' I looked down and realized I only had only created half the sauce compared to Audrey. I couldn't help but chuckle at my clear cut culinary shortcomings. The difference between Thai and Lao food was hammered home emphatically by our Lao cooking instructor: "We don't put much sugar in Lao cooking like Thai food. You taste Thai food and it tastes milky and creamy and sweet because they add lots of coconut milk and lots of sugar. That is why the food tastes like that. Lao food is very different tasting like lots of herbs and lots of texture. This is Laos food. This does not mean Thai food is not tasty. Thai food is very tasty but our food tastes different." Overall, our experience at Tamarind cooking school was pleasant; however, compared to other cooking schools I felt it lacked a bit in terms of personal instruction and one on one help. For culinary wizards, this wouldn't be problematic, but for me it manifested in more than a few failed dishes ;) http://nomadicsamuel.com/video-blog/lao-cooking-class Here we are visiting a market again and that can only mean one thing - we are taking a cooking course yet again. Today we are going to be learning how to make Lao food and our first stop is Phou Si market. It is the biggest market in Luang Prabang and apparently it opens up at four in the morning. For our cooking class today it's an awesome surprise - we've got this lush garden setting. It feels like we're just walking into someones backyard. In Laos his wife and daughter cook for the family not the husband and son. This is culture. We don't put much sugar in Lao cooking like Thai food. You taste Thai food and it tastes milky and creamy and sweet because they add lots of coconut milk and lots of sugar. That is why the food tastes like that. Lao food is very different tasting like lots of herbs and lots of texture. This is Laos food. This does not mean Thai food is not tasty. Thai food is very tasty but our food tastes different. Now time to try your tomato dip. I made mine really spicy accidentally because I thought we were cooking this. I'm making a little ball with the sticky rice. Voila! I'll dip it in here. How is it? It has a real kick to it but it is so good. It has lemon juice, hot peppers, garlic. I like it. I'd like to point out that Sam and I are making the exact same dish. This is his sauce. This is mine. What are you missing? Just about everything. We're making the Mok Pa fish and you are going to show us how to wrap it. What a work of art Audrey. Amazing! Oh, be quiet. It is going to taste amazing. Here we have our buffalo salad. We stir-fried some buffalo meat and we also added bean sprouts,banana flowers, string beans, hot chilies and mint leaves. We're going to be rolling this up in lettuce leaves. It's kind of like a little fresh roll. This is part of our Travel in Thailand series. We're making a series of videos showcasing Thai culture, Thai arts, Thai foods, Thai religion and Thai people.

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.

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.

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 experiences traveling in Vietnam (favorite places, food, transportation & budget travel tips)
 
04:24
Now that we've settled into our new base in Chiang Mai, Thailand we though it would be a perfect time for us to discuss our most recent experiences traveling in Vietnam; including what was our favorite places/destinations, food, transportation and budget travel tips. As a brief introduction, Vietnam is one of the most under-rated countries in SE Asia for backpackers and/or travelers given what it offers in terms of value. As a country with diverse landscapes, regional uniqueness and mouthwatering cuisine, I'm still surprised more people aren't flocking here. 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 our specific journey, we started off in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) and ended up covering the Mekong Delta, Nha Trang, Hoi An, Halong Bay, Hanoi and Sapa. If we had more time we wish we could have explored Hanoi longer (we really just used it as a transportation hub) and visited the likes of Dalat and Mui Ne. Our top three attractions in Vietnam were cruising along Halong Bay on a boat tour, being culture vultures in Hoi An and trekking and visiting hill-tribes in Sapa. Ha Long Bay scored high on our list given the extreme beauty of the Karst Limestone cliffs we got to witness up close and personal. Staying overnight on a boat and having the opportunity to interact with other travelers - from all walks of life and different ages - proved to be a top highlight; also, we had the opportunity to try kayaking together for the first time along with visiting a cave and several beaches. Hoi An is a place we could both potentially see ourselves considering strongly as a base in the not too distant future. It had everything we desired in a city including great food, fascinating architecture, local markets worth exploring and countryside & beaches nearby. Sapa, was otherworldly. We've never had such stunning views from our hotel room before and when we decided to venture off trekking we were treated to scenery even more spectacular than our hotel room views - which blew our minds in the first place. The problem with narrowing things down to just three places/attractions is that you leave out a lot of things you really enjoyed. Our preferred method of transportation was taking the train (even though buses were cheaper) given it was the most comfortable journey. If you do take the buses, especially the overnight ones, be prepared for plenty of swerving, honking and random jolts. Even though we were able to sleep through most of the night, it was not restful sleep by any means. A few times, we awoke feeling as though we were going off of a cliff; not terribly pleasant to say the least. If we had to do it over again, we'd have done the entire journey by train. In terms of accommodations we found that we were able to find excellent value around the $17-20 range and when we splurged at $30 we were getting boutique value. In Malaysia (and even Cambodia to a certain extent), we were scrimping and not willing to pay a bit extra for comfort. In Vietnam, we changed our strategy and - in turn - were rewarded with more comfortable beds, air conditioning and reliable wifi; it was certainly money well spent. Overall, Vietnam was our favorite country in SE Asia that we explored over the past three months and we HIGHLY recommend it to others whether you're vacationers, travelers, backpackers or digital nomads: http://nomadicsamuel.com/video-blog/travel-in-vietnam Bây giờ chúng ta đã giải quyết thành cơ sở mới của chúng tôi tại Chiang Mai, Thái Lan, chúng tôi mặc dù nó sẽ là một thời điểm hoàn hảo để chúng tôi thảo luận về những kinh nghiệm gần đây nhất của chúng tôi đi du lịch ở Việt Nam, bao gồm cả những gì đã được các địa điểm yêu thích của chúng tôi / các điểm đến, thực phẩm, giao thông vận tải và du lịch ngân sách lời khuyên. Như một giới thiệu ngắn gọn, Việt Nam là một trong những quốc gia bị đánh giá cao nhất ở Đông Nam Á cho du khách ba lô và / hoặc khách du lịch cho những gì nó cung cấp về giá trị.

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! 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/ Argentine Breakfast in Buenos Aires, Argentina Travel Video Transcript: So today's video is all about breakfast and the plan is to show you an Argentinian breakfast. 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.

What would be your one tip for visiting Paris? Well, I have recently spent a whole ten days here in summer. 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. And that concludes our guide of the top 50 things to do and see in Paris. We hope you enjoyed watching, and let us know if there are other places you would add to this list.

Anticuchos de la Tía Grimanesa: (Peruvian beef heart - anticuchos de corazón) in Lima, Peru
 
03:10
I have to admit I pretty much like just about anything when it comes to food aside from organs. Typically, when I've tried liver, intestines or kidneys I've found it chewy, tough and generally not very tasty. However, there is a big exception to this rule and it is called Anticuchos. While in Lima, Peru we had the opportunity to visit Anticuchos de la Tía Grimanesa to sample anticuchos de corazón (stewed beef heart. Honestly, if I were to have just tried this without knowing what it was I'm confident I would have thought it was pieces of steak. The meat is surprisingly tender and is typically marinated in vinegar and spices (garlic, cumin and aji pepper) and is accompanied by Peruvian corn (Choclo) and boiled potatoes (papas sancochadas). I washed it down with a chilled Inca Kola.

If you're visiting Lima it is one of the top things to try before leaving. Anticuchos de la Tía Grimanesa: (Peruvian beef heart - anticuchos de corazón) in Lima, Peru Travel Video Transcript: So dinner time here in Lima and tonight we are going out for anticuchos, which are cow hearts. I know this sounds a little bit unusual but it is actually really tasty so we've come to a popular place. It is called La Grimanesa, we've already placed our order. Let's go get our cow heart. So this place that we're visiting it actually started as a little street stand, so the women who opened the restaurant used to have a little cart and she used to sell her anticuchos on the street and she had a super long line because her food was delicious. She was really popular. And eventually she was able to save up enough money to open a little restaurant here in the neighborhood. So yeah, humble beginnings, but you know the recipe was great so here we are today. So we have it. The star of the meal. This is my anticuchos. It doesn't really look like a cow's heart in my opinion. I mean, you could food me and tell me this is steak but I'm going to have my first bite. I'm not sure how to do this. Honestly, it's a fairly tender meat. It doesn't have a lot of fat. It could pass off as steak. If no one told you this is a cow's heart you would never know. Your turn. Time for my first bite. I'm going to try some of the sauces here. I think we have a red spicy one and a green one. Oh, that is so so good. And that is really spicy sauce. You know the meat is really well seasoned so it takes on the flavor of whatever they've used. Like the heart it doesn't taste like an organ. I know exactly, normally when I have organs they're really tough and chewy but this is as nice of a tender cut of meat as you can find. And we got one more side to go along with the anticucho. What are you having? This is called choclo. And it is a kind of giant corn which is unique to Peru. Yeah, let's see if we can get a good shot of those kernels because they're bigger than my nails. I know they're massive. They're huge. And the taste is great. It is quite sweet. Yeah, but is also kind of fibrous too. It's very chewy. And price point for anybody who is willing to try cow's heart? For the cow's heart, all the side dishes and a drink it came to 33 Soles which is just over 10 US dollars. Not bad value. We're full. 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. All things Peruano.

Our food mission on a Saturday afternoon in Lima, Peru was to find some of the best Ceviche in the city. After a recommendation from a friend, we headed over to Restaurante Punto Azul with nothing but raw fish on our minds. Ceviche, what some consider to be the National dish of Peru, is basically raw fish cured in citrus juices (lemon and/or lime) enhanced with chili peppers (known as ají or aji).

Well, we didn't exactly stop there. With eyes much bigger our stomachs we ordered Causa, deep-fried assorted seafood and a decadent dessert washing it all down with a sweet purple corn juice called Chica Morada. We totally over-indulged and left the restaurant with bulging bellies. Overall, our entire feast of feasts cost 118 Soles which is just under $40 USD. We'll be back again before we leave Lima in a couple of weeks. Ceviche can also be splled cebiche or seviche. Eating Ceviche in Lima, Peru Travel Food Video Transcript: So it is lunchtime here in Lima and today we are at a local restaurant in Miraflores. It is called El Punto Azul and we are going to be trying the Peruvian national dish Ceviche. And judging by how packed this place is I have really high expectations. We had to come and sit up on the second floor. Our food has arrived. I couldn't be more excited. What do we have? Yeah. That was certainly worth the wait. So right now we have Ceviche over here and it comes with onions, sweet potatoes and also giant yellow corn. And look over to this side and we have something called Causa. Which is made with yellow sweet potato and there is some kind of seafood in the middle. You know what - that almost looks too cute to eat. It is shaped just like a fish. So the big question. What is Ceviche? It is actually a seafood dish. It is raw fish and it is cured with lemon juice and it is also served with a few spices and some onions. So I'm taking my first bite. Mmmm. That is so good. I think it is better than sushi honestly. That is amazing. Second bite. Nice and lemony citrusy. So good. And now I usually have to tell you this but please leave some for me too. So for my first bite I'm going to try mine with some aji. Oh, go easy on that. How is it? It's just so amazing. For me it is like enhanced Sashimi. Just all of the preparation they put into that sour sauce is just so good. One thing I've absolutely been loving since we've come to Lima is this giant sized corn. These kernels are massive. Check it out. Those are big. Okay, so our next dish is Causa. Let's dig in. I almost feel guilty eating this it is so beautifully presented. That is seriously good. I can taste a lot of different ingredients there. So the big mystery over here is we're trying to decide what is actually in this dish. Okay. And what do you think? So Causa, it is made with yellow mashed potatoes. I asked for the one that comes with seafood and it also looks like it has some avocado and mayonnaise. And for our drink we're having something that is called Chicha Morada. And it is a juice made from purple corn. Very tasty. Highly recommended. This is the best I've ever had. Like they've put some extra spices and ingredients. It has got a real kick to it. I don't know what is in it but. It is really sweet and really refreshing. Well now that we've finished all of the fish we're left with nothing but lemon juice. But the good news it tastes delicious. It's amazing. You know what it kind of tastes a bit like Tom Yum. Tom Yum soup from Thailand. I have no idea what we were thinking ordering a third plate of food. Like this is just ridiculous. We're already full. What have we got? I think we went a little overboard. This is basically breaded and deep-fried seafood, so there is a little mix of everything. We have some pieces of fish. Some shrimp. And what are those? They look like giant potato wedges? Well, this is called Yucca. And it is kind of like a root or a potato. It is very fiberous and you eat it like French Fries basically. This is a fried Yucca.

Cat Cafe in Berlin, Germany | Pee Pees Katzencafé
 
02:20
We've visited cat cafes in three different countries - one in Korea, one in Thailand and one in Malaysia. This is going to be our first in Germany. This one is called Pee Pees Katzencafé. As soon as we walked into Pee Pee's Katzencafe, two very energetic young cats greeted us. As friendly as could be they came over to sniff our bags, clothes and shoes before turning their attention to what was going on outside of the window. Although it was just the two of them, they certainly gave us enough attention while providing plenty of entertainment as we sipped on tea and ate cake.

Soon play turned to fighting. They really went at it for a while - blue versus red. For anyone who has had a young cat as a pet this is certainly normal behavior and it made us laugh. Not long after they started to settle down a bit for an afternoon nap. This cafe was quite different from the ones we have visited in Asia. For starters it was quite small and they only had two cats to play with us. Also they didn't have a lot of toys which makes it a little difficult to be interactive with the cats because it is difficult to lure them your way. Overall it was a nice little place to drink some tea and have cake with some cats for company. The total cost of the cat cafe was 8 Euros that allowed us to get two teas and a slice of cake, which was quite affordable we thought: http://nomadicsamuel.com/video-blog/cat-cafe-berlin This is part of our Travel in Germany series.

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.

Arriving in Helsinki and visiting Lonna Island | Finland Vlog Day 1
 
03:42
Surprise! We're back in Finland! After a long overnight flight from Toronto to Helsinki with Finnair we arrived and checked into the Katajanokka Hotel (Jail Hotel) nearby the market square. 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/ http://nomadicsamuel.com/photo-essays/helsinki-travel-guide http://nomadicsamuel.com/video-blog/arriving-helsinki-visiting-lonna-island Along the way we noticed several things have changed in the city! Firstly, in the market square port area there is the addition of the impressive new Ferris Wheel (or Observation Wheel) called the Finnair Sky Wheel. Also, as we traipsed downtown we noticed people eating their lunch in the sky! This massive crane lifts people into the air where they can eat their meal with impressive views over the city. Officially it is called 'dinner in the sky.' With sweat pouring down our foreheads we decided to take a rest and attempt to get over our jet lag - neither of us slept well on the flight for some reason. Checking in at over 30 degrees it was the hottest day we've ever experienced in Finland. After catching some much needed rest we joined a group of bloggers boarding a ferry bound for the recently opened island of Lonna. Lonna island, formerly a military island, is a quaint little island located nearby Suomenlinna. For dinner we enjoyed typical Finnish summer dishes including grilled fish, potatoes and various kinds of vegetables. Overall, it was the perfect way for us to spend our first day back in Finland and with a good night's sleep we'll be ready to hit the ground running tomorrow :) Arriving in Helsinki and visiting Lonna Island | Finland Vlog Day 1 Surprise, surprise, surprise! We are back in Finland almost one year to the day that we left. This is awesome. This is one of my favorite countries in all of Europe. Most people when they arrive sometimes they go and freshen up. They might splash a little water on their faces or maybe go to the washroom after a long nine hour flight. But no. What is the first thing that I do - get my Salmiakki candy. I've been craving this for over a year and I've already ate half of the bag and I'm having even more now. So good! What we're about to show you is called dinner in the sky. You are going to see some people sitting up on a table, just hanging from a crane. Look for yourself! The port area or market square appears to be even bigger and busier than last time year. It is just bustling with activity and there is a Ferris Wheel right over there. A bit hot and tired are we? Oh my gosh, so sweaty and tired. I need a shower and a bed. And you know what - this is easily the hottest day we've ever experienced in Finland. Yes. It is over thirty. We're back in jail. We stayed here last year. We did. Let's check out the room. Come on in. This room here used to be a jail cell which explains why the windows are so high up, so the prisoners couldn't escape. Also, they have really thick curtains here in Finland and that is because during the summer the sun just stays up a really long time. You wouldn't be able to sleep otherwise. We're back in Finland on an eight day adventure and we plan on shooting a daily vlog. Basically what we want to do is just show you exactly what we're doing and what it is like to be in Finland in the summer - both in the city and outside in the countryside doing more adventure types of activities. We just arrived at Lonna Island. This used to be a former military island and it has just opened to the public this summer, so we're going to check it out. It was a really cool meal. We had grilled fish and potatoes. And that is just like the quintessential Finnish summer meal. Music in this video courtesy of Audio Network This is part of our Travel in Finland series.

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.

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.

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.

Our Favorite Romanian Food in Bucharest Romania
 
06:37
Heading back to Bucharest from Brasov, Romania allowed us to eat all of our favorite Romanian dishes one last time before leaving the country. With this in mind, we headed over to La Plăcinte restaurant to order a complete meal. With a huge menu featuring a selection of Moldavian pies, soups, salads, grilled meats and desserts narrowing down what we wanted to have for the last time was a daunting task. We ended up ordering as follows: 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/ If you're in București be sure to try lunch or dinner at La Placinte (La Plăcinte). 1) Moldavian pie with sheep and goat cheese 2) Polenta cheese balls 3) Pork bake with cheese, cream, mushrooms, potatoes and tomatoes 4) Chocolate cake with Halva, walnuts and caramel. Our Favorite Romanian Food in Bucharest, Romania Travel Video Transcript: We're coming to the end of our time in Romania and we thought we'd take you out one last time to show you some traditional Romanian cuisine. It's definitely been a highlight of our trip. We've absolutely loved eating Romanian food, so we can't wait to show you a few new things. So I'm very excited because our food has finally arrived and first up I'm going to show you this Moldavian pancake. So it is basically a dough pancake and it is filled with sheep's cheese and cow's cheese but our server also asked if we wanted bacon inside, so we said 'yes, of course.' So let's dig in. I'm going to cut it up and show you what it looks like. On this inside. Oh, yeah. You can see all of the cheese seeping out. Mmmm. Yeah, we've had this a few times and they're really generous with the cheese. Oh yeah. And you can order all different kinds of cheese. They have cottage cheese, you can get mozzarella cheese, whatever you like. Oh, so check it out from this angle. Can you see the bacon in there? Oh, yeah. Oh yeah, baby. Oh, yeah. Let's try it. I'm just eating it like a pizza. I don't know if is right. Oh, that's still hot. Mmmm. That's really good guys. Really good. A little greasy. My fingers are looking oily. But those flavors, the salty cheese and then you've got the bacon. It's real good. It's a nice little appetizer here. I like that you can have it as an appetizer or you could also have it as a main. Like if you were to eat that whole thing it's filling. And we forgot to mention this can also be served as a dessert. That's right. You can get sweet ones as well. Yeah, sweet cheese and raisins and cranberries. We haven't tried one of those yet but. Maybe we should. Hahaha. Okay, look over here because this is a pretty cool dish. Polenta balls. And I find it really interesting because I've had polenta before in places like Argentina and Italy but I've never seen the polenta rolled out into a little ball like they do here in Romania. And if I cut it in half you can see that it is stuffed with cheese. Oh, yeah. Just look at that. Oh, yeah. And here it comes with a garlic sauce with dill and also sour cream. So let's add a bit of sour cream. Dunk that in the garlic. Look at that. Oh, wow. Mmmm. That's real good. That is so garlic-y. I'm going to have really bad breath after this but it is so good. It is worth it. This is really good. This sort of reminds me a little bit of a lasagna. Mmmmm. And of course we could not resist getting some dessert. So we are having something called Tort a Lunel. And I'm probably butchering the name but that is how I think it is pronounced. And it is basically a dense chocolate cake with Halva, walnuts and peanuts. Oh, my! Alright, time for me to try this. Wow! That is some kind of decadent. I don't even know how we're going to finish this. The two of us with one piece of cake. I find when I'm having Romanian food I am so stuffed by the end of the meal. Siesta time after this for sure.. Time for price point. It was 95 Lei which if we do the conversion according to Sam is very cheap. Right, Sam? Yeah, it is just over 20 US dollars and we ended up getting 3 drinks, 3 mains and a dessert. Not bad.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Announcing Our Trip To South Africa!!!
 
03:56
In late December, roughly the halfway mark of our time in teacher's college, we were bouncing ideas off of one another in terms of where we'd like to travel to as a graduation present for completing our degrees. What completely shocked us was when we found a deal to Johannesburg, South Africa for $350 return from New York City. To put this price in perspective we typically are not able to fly anywhere in Canada (1-2 hour flights) for that kind of price. Immediately we pounced on 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/ The two of us have visited five different continents together; however, we've yet to set food on African soil. South Africa, a destination visited recently by many travel bloggers, has long been on our radar. After waiting for nearly five months we're now finished school and our adventures in South Africa have begun! We couldn't be more excited! We plan on doing an overland journey from Jo-Burg to Cape Town focusing primarily on outdoors adventures including wildlife safaris and hiking. Some of the top highlights we're most excited about include having the opportunity to do an African wildlife safari at Kruger National Park and spending ample time in Cape Town. We hope you'll come along for the ride :) Announcing Our Trip To South Africa!!! Travel Video Transcript: So it is a very exciting day today. This past week we graduated University which means it is time to travel again. So we've kind of kept this trip as a surprise. We're going to somewhere we've never been before. New continent! Yeah, our 6th continent. We're heading to Africa - specifically, South Africa. And we're going to be there for an entire month almost. So this video is going to be all about the journey getting there. It is actually going to take us three days to travel from Canada to South Africa. So we'll show you what that looks like and I have a feeling we'll be all disheveled and stinky by the end of it. So this is flight one of three. Okay, so the first part of our journey is complete. We made it from Toronto to La Guardia transferred over to JFK and now it is time for some lunch. And lucky for us we've found some Korean food here. So I'm having Kimchi Jigae which I haven't had in weeks. What a find! I know. That's a great way to kill all of the time we have. Yeah. Look at all of that soft tofu. Yum! Flight number two out of three. We've been traveling for 13 hours. So good morning from Abu Dhabi. We spent the night here just at a hotel in the airport because we had a really long layover. It was like 13 hours and we were exhausted. And there is no way I can handle sleeping on the floor at this age, so here we are. We're well rested. We had a shower and this morning we're going to go catch our last flight. Our third and final flight that will take us to Johannesburg. So what is the plan once we get to South Africa? Well, we're doing an overland trip all the way from Johannesburg to Cape Town. And the main focus of this trip is just going to be a lot of outdoors adventures. The first thing we're doing is a safari and then after that we're going to be doing a lot of trekking and just other kinds of cool things. So the goal for this trip is to make a vlog every day and we're going to try our best to stick to that. And before we leave I just wanted to show you the view from the room. We're in the desert. It looks very dry. And yeah, that is all that we saw of Abu Dhabi, so we'll have to return sometime. I have four seats all to myself. Hello! All right we are finally here in Johannesburg. And I couldn't be more excited to start our journey. I am exhausted but you know adrenaline is pumping through my veins right now. 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.

Indonesian street food taste test challenge: Eating Indonesian desserts & snacks in Solo, Indonesia
 
09:21
Come join us in Solo (Surakarta), Indonesian as we sample a host of different Indonesian desserts and Indonesian street food snacks in the form of a taste test challenge for the first time. Most of the Indonesian street food desserts had a coconut base and we ended up trying Serabi Notosuman coconut milk pancakes, karak solo, Gethuk, Onde-onde, Arem-arem, Lapis and Kunir Asem just to name a few.

So it is lunchtime. We're not having a proper meal. We're just going to be sampling a little bit of everything. So we're starting off with coconut milk pancakes which are called Serabi. Yeah, so let's take a look at it down here. So you can see the outside fringe it looks like something quite crispy. Yeah. And I think this is going to be like the middle part is the coconut milk. So I'm not entirely sure how to eat this. I'm just going to take a big bite. That looks delicious. I love coconut and so what you've got here, if you look down here. Yeah. This part it sort of tastes like, I don't know like maybe like a coconut type of pudding. Yeah. It is really um it has got a bit of milky consistency. It is it tastes a little bit wet once you have it in your mouth and then this part over here is crispy so you've got those two. You've got the contrast between the crispiness and the pudding like texture. Woah. Oh man, I love that. Instant hit. Dessert for lunch. So up next Karak. Karak Solo. So from what I was told these are made with rice. And I think they're kind of like rice crackers. So let's try those. Mmmm. Sounds crispy. Very crunchy. Surprinsingly it has quite a bit of flavor and it is a lot more savory than it is sweet. It kind of reminds me of the crackers you get when you're having Gado-Gado. Oh. So next up we have. I think we have something called Onde-onde. Yeah. And I've tried this in Malaysia and also Hong Kong. It is one of my favorite kind of dessert types of dim sum. I don't know if they eat it as a dim sum here in Indonesia but I love this. If it is the same thing I am assuming that. So the exterior is that like glutinous rice with sesame seeds. It is really chewy on the outside and in the inside you have like the mystery ingredient. So this one I believe is called Arem-arem and it comes wrapped in a leaf. So let's open this up and see what we have in here. It looks like a pancake. That looks fascinating. Oh, okay. So it looks like a pancake tube and inside you have rice. Let's get a close up shot of that. Look at that. Oh wow. With some kind of sauce inside. Okay so new snack. Yeah, we've got another mystery one it is called Lapis. So let's take a look down here. You can see all of the different. It is very stripy. It has different color lines Okay. Similar to the other one. It has kind of like a gelatin like taste. If I had to guess again this isn't that sweet but it hints of like coconut and chocolate flavor. I think more or less everything we've tried has some kind of coconut which is awesome. I think they specialize in coconut here. We love anything with coconut. So look at that. You know what? I've enjoyed everything we've tried here. So next up we're trying a drink that the store owner recommended. It is called Kunir Asem Freso. It looks orange. It is kind of sweet but it has some weird herbal aftertaste I would say. You know what? An acquired taste? An acquired taste. I think this is the one thing that I'm like hmmm. Well we had no problem polishing off everything. Yeah. What we didn't show you is that we went back for two more of the pancakes. We had a chocolate one and a coconut one. So we had four in total plus all of those snacks. It came to less that five US dollars which is four something so man that was like a feast of feasts like we are stuffed. Huge lunch and now it is time to maybe walk it off a bit. Yeah. So if you're in Solo (Surakarta), Indonesia definitely check this place out. It is amazing.

Fear Factor Taste Test: Foreigners try eating Finnish Salty Licorice Salmiakki in Finland
 
02:55
Never shying away from trying new exotic delights in Finland, we grabbed a package of Finnish Salmiakki, known as black salty licorice, to sample in a 'fear factor' type of taste test where many foreigners have spat it out on the first try. 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/ http://nomadicsamuel.com/travel-stories/foreigner-who-loves-finnish-salmiakki Salty liquorice, known in Finnish as Salmiakki or Salmiak, is a type of liquorice flavored with ammonium chloride. It's one of the most common candy snacks in Nordic countries; however, it's most popular in Finland. The ammonium chloride gives the black salty licorice its astringent / salty taste. It has such an overpowering taste that it has been referred to by some as tongue numbing. With this in mind we both sat down to taste this exotic Finnish delight. I've grown up in a family that adores liquorice. Late night 'treats' often consisted of either a bowl of popcorn with Parmesan cheese of a package of nibs or black licorice. Knowing that I loved 'sweet' American style licorice, I sat down with an open mind convinced I'd learn to love this Finnish salty counterpart. As I popped my first piece into my mouth, the astringent taste overwhelmed my taste buds. I had never tasted anything quite like this before in my life; in fact, I couldn't think of a single other food item I've ever tried before that quite compared to what was now sitting in my mouth. Should I swallow or spit it out? The answer was obvious: swallow I instantly fell in love with Salmiakki; instead, of just popping one into my mouth I grabbed a handful. Within just an hour I had devoured the entire bag. Audrey, on the other hand, had an entirely different experience. Not a fan of licorice in any way, the results were rather predictable; as soon as she popped it into her mouth she spat it out immediately: "Yuck! This is disgusting. How could you possibly eat that?" she murmured. "It's amazing!" I said with absolute conviction: "It's wonderful that you don't like it. That means I get to eat it all!" For those seeking to try Salmiakki - while traveling in Finland - have options galore. Although most popular as bite sized candy, Salmiakki is now found in other products such as ice cream, alcoholic beverages, cola drinks, vodka, chocolate and even meat. In neighboring countries it is known by different names: Swedish: salmiaklakrits Danish: salmiaklakrids My favorite brand of Salmiakki happened to be Fazer. Fazer, known more for its creamy chocolate bars, was a brand I quickly associated with comfort food. The question of the day: Would you try this Finnish candy? Do you like salty food? Are you open to trying new foods abroad or do you prefer to stick to familiar favorites? I would love to encourage you to try it and documents your experience on camera. Will you swallow or spit it out? That's the million dollar question of the day ;) http://nomadicsamuel.com/video-blog/salmiakki Koskaan välttelevät yrittää uusia eksoottisia herkkuja meillä Suomessa tarttuipaketti Suomen Salmiakki , tunnetaan musta suolainen lakritsi , näyte on" Fear Factor " tyyppinen maku testi, jossa monet ulkomaalaiset ovat sylki sen ulosensi yrittämällä.

AUSTRALIAN ANIMAL ENCOUNTERS AT CURRUMBIN WILDLIFE SANCTUARY
 
02:35
When Audrey and I first found out we were coming to Queensland, Australia one of the first things we got really excited about was to potentially have a chance to have authentic encounters with animals native to Australia. Holding a koala, petting and feeding a kangaroo and spotting a Wallaby for the first time were things I've always dreamed of. However, visiting the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, located just a few kilometers from the Gold Coast, was much more than just that. 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/ During our tour we had a guide who accompanied us explaining fascinating facts about all of the animals. Later on in the morning we got to visit the onsite veterinarian who treats injured wildlife from nearby areas. The high level of care and compassion by Australians towards their wildlife is at a standard I've yet to witness anywhere else in the world. Instead of just having mere animal encounters I left Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary with an education. This morning we are visiting the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary here in the Gold Coast and we are going to be having lots of animal encounters. Now, I'm really looking forward to meeting a kangaroo because I've never been up close to one, so hopefully I'll get to feed one. And I'm most looking forward to feeding lorikeets - a very colorful and energetic bird. During our visit to Currumbin National Park, we had a chance to get up close and personal with Kangaroos. Feeding and petting the Roos was one of the top highlights of visiting Currumbin. And who could forget doing the ultimate thing - taking a Kangaroo selfie ;) Spotting animals we had previously never heard of was also part of the program, including the orange tree Kangaroo and one of Australia's most dangerous birds the Cassowary. And no trip to Currumbin would be complete without spending a little bit of quality time with the adorable koalas. Overall, we had a really cool experience here. I like that it had more of a conservation environment as opposed to being like a zoo. We had the opportunity to get up close and interact with the animals and it was also very educational. So someone got themselves a new souvenir. Check it out. I'm loving it so far. It is light, it is cool and feels awesome on the head. This is part of our Travel in Australia series.

20 Things to do in Lviv, Ukraine Travel Guide
 
12:01

Having come straight from Kiev, Lviv offered a real change of scenery. The city was much smaller, more walkable, and it looked distinctly Central European. In some ways, it reminded us of a smaller version of Krakow or Prague, though a little rough around the edges. But enough about first impressions; let us actually show you around. In this video we’re going to take you on a grand tour of the city and highlight 20 things to do in Lviv on your next visit, so let’s get started. Like in Kiev, we quickly discovered that Lviv is a city of churches, so our next stop was the Church of the Holy Communion. After our sushi lunch, we visited the Bernardine Church in the south end of the Old Town; followed by the Latin Cathedral, which sits in the southwest corner of Market Square; and finally the Jesuit Church, where we stumbled upon yet another wedding! And that’s a wrap for our visit to Lviv, Ukraine. We found this to be a charming city with a completely different look and feel from Kiev, so we’re glad we added this stop to our itinerary. If you’re short on time, this is a great destination for a weekend escape. If you have any other suggestions of cool things to do around Lviv, feel free to share those with fellow travellers in the comments below. Wishing you happy travels!

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

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!

Eating a Deep-Fried Mars Bar in Edinburgh, Scotland
 
04:06
On a quest to try a deep-fried Mars bar, we found a local chip shop in Edinburgh, Scotland that specialized in deep frying chocolate bars including Snickers bars and also Twix. I remember seeing a program featuring Scotland nearly a decade ago where a deep-fried Mars bar was featured. 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 my teenage years at the time, I thought it was an absolutely brilliant idea. I loved deep fried chips, battered fish and fried rice. Why not fry a chocolate bar? Now that I look back in hindsight, I wonder if this was the rational of the chipper who first fried a Mars bar in the mid 90's in Stonehaven. Little did he/she know what a phenomenon they would create. Now nearly 1/4 of all chip shops in Scotland offer the option of deep frying a Mars bar (or any chocolate bar for that matter). Some even feature a dedicated fryer exclusive for the chocolate bars only. In popular tourist areas certain shops sell as many as 50-200 bars per week! Hunting down a shop in Edinburgh was a little more tricky than it is in say Glasgow. When I finally did locate a shop, I immediately noticed an impressive selection of different chocolate bars. Upon the recommendation of the chipper I decided to go with a deep-fried Mars bar, deep-fried Snickers and deep-fried Twix. Although this may sound glutinous to some, I felt a responsibility to report which bar was the best ;) The kind owner let me into the back of the kitchen to film and learn the tricks of the trade first hand: "You just stick it in the batter and shake it around. It's a secret recipe. Keep it in the fryer for 2-3 minutes. It's 170 degrees." Before I knew it, I had four slabs of deep fried chocolate in my hands and it was time to experience a taste test. Audrey, feeling queasy from an upset stomach, left me to my own devices to sample all three for the two of us. Oh, what a pity ;) I started off with the Mars bar. The first thing I noticed was that the bar appeared to have shrunk a bit in size and was a little flimsy from the melted chocolate inside. Upon taking my first bite I felt the crispiness of the deep fried batter give way to melted chocolate and caramel. This was so much better than just a regular bar on its own. This is part of our Travel in Scotland series showcasing Scottish culture, Scottish arts, Scottish foods, Scottish religion and Scottish people. http://nomadicsamuel.com/video-blog/eating-deep-fried-mars-bar http://nomadicsamuel.com/country-guides/scotland What's your name? Sam. Sam how you doing man? We're doing a deep-fried snickers, a Twix and we've already done a Mars bar already. Awesome. I'm going to unwrap it. Stick it in the batter. I can't tell you that because it's my secret. Hahaha...secret recipe? Of course. The Twix. One. Two. Mix it around. Give it a little shake. We fry them separately. This is just for the Mars bars. Mars bars only. Awesome. So the temperature. This is 170 degrees. And while the batter cooks the chocolate will melt. So the batter will cook before the chocolate. So we've been hearing lots about the Mars bars but Sam here went overboard and tried three different chocolate bars that have been deep fried. So what do you have? Well, at the recommendation of the guy at the chip shop. He recommended I also try the Snickers and the Twix bar, so we've got it all right here. Let's unwrap that. I don't want to drop it here. Okay. Let's see that thing of beauty. Isn't that gorgeous. Alright, so which is which? So I believe this is the Snickers. We've got the two Twixes here and that is the Mars bar. Alright. And you're feeling a little queasy today, so I'm going to be the one trying them all. And you can tell they really feel as though they've been deep-fried and melted. This is flimsy in the hand. Yeah, this is a Mars bar. I can tell from what is seeping out. Take a bite. Oh, Wow. It's all melted inside. Okay, so you've tried all three. Which was our favorite? Definitely the Snickers. Why? Because I love Snickers bars and this just enhanced it. So, it's not surprising that taking something that is already unhealthy and making it even unhealthier would make it taste better.

Peruvian Breakfast: Eating Tamales and Pan Con Chicharrón in Lima
 
07:04
Lately, our travel/food adventures have taken us to nearby parks in Lima or restaurants in Miraflores; however, we've yet to show you a typical meal we'd have at home. With this in mind, we share with you today a typical Peruvian breakfast consisting of two main staples: Tamales and Pan Con Chicharrón 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/ Tamales are a traditional breakfast item consisting primarily of masa (a starchy corn-based dough), steamed in a banana leaf wrapper that is discarded before eating. You can get them stuffed with all sorts of fillings including cheese, chicken and pork. Pan Con Chicharron is a crispy savory pork sandwich featuring slices of cooked sweet potato (Kamote) and sour onions. The combination of savory, sweet and sour is unbeatable. When visiting Peru be sure to try these for breakfast! Peruvian Breakfast: Eating Tamales and Pan Con Chicharrón in Lima Travel Video Transcript: So good morning from Lima. We've been showing you guys a lot of street food, a lot of traditional meals but today we're bringing you into the home to show you what a Peruvian breakfast looks like. And that is what I got right here. Today we are sampling two traditional breakfasts. We're going to be having Tamales (which is what you see over here) and we're also having something called Pan Con Chicharrón, so let's just dig in because I'm starving. This is my favourite food item Tamale. And it is time for the big unveil. So here we have the dish and I am so excited to dig in. So in case you're not too familiar with Tamales it is actually a starchy corn dough which is wrapped in a plantain leaf and then it is either steamed or boiled. So yeah, this is a really nice savory and starchy dish. It is a really nice way to start the day because it is a very hearty breakfast, it fills you up for the rest of the day and it just tastes so good. So Sam what are you having for breakfast today? For my Peruvian breakfast, I am having Pan Con Chicharron. And if that is not a handful enough of a word this looks like a pretty big sandwich. Look at what we've got here. And what about the meat? So the meat is pork and it is called Chicharrón because it is really nice and crispy. It sounds like the perfect sandwich to me. Alright, my favorite part of every food video - the first bite. Mmmm, yeah. That meat is amazing and when you pair it with the sweet potato that is an all-time winning combo. I love this. I could eat this for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, whatever. Mmmm. And this looked too good so I wanted to try it as well because I'm hungry that way. Is that your way of basically kicking me off as a presenter. More or less, right? Mmmm. That is a winning combination. This may be my new favorite breakfast item actually. Wow! It just knocked off the other item, the Tamales? Give me a second to finish chewing. Alright, so what I like about this one is that you have the savoury pork - the Chicharron - then you've got the sweet potatoes but also the onions in the sandwich have been soaked in lemon so there is a nice sourness to it. So you have all of these flavours mixing together and it is just like a party in my mouth. And the quality of the bun is really good too. So yeah, you put those nice ingredients. That sour, sugary ingredients with a nice quality bun. It is so good. Oh man, I know. And that is supposed to be mine. So um, you're only getting one more bite. It better be a big one then. Make it worthwhile. That's what is left. We've had a very patient third member in this food video. Dog Maki. And I like to refer to this cute little dog as the goose of silly. It has so much energy and when we bring it to the table to give it a little bit - is it Chicharron? -he is going to be over the moon excited. Let's go get him. He's got quite the appetite. Let's go get him. 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. All things Peruano.

Family Pet Chinchilla Playing, Eating and Bathing
 
03:01
It's always nice having new additions to the family - especially when they're cute and fluffy ;) Recently Audrey's sister added a Chinchilla to the mix of family pets which already includes a dog, a fish and two cats. Meeting it for the first time I was honestly quite skeptical. I've always had the idea that rodents were more or less devoid of personality and behaved quite unpredictably without showing much affection. Well, I was certainly wrong. Tuvia, the pet Chinchilla, has loads of personality and is now very comfortable around all of us. She'll bounce around, play, roll and even hop on your lap if you let her. In this video it is all about her. We show her playing, eating and bathing. The most fascinating part, at least for me, is showing her take a volcanic powder blue cloud dust bath where she rolls around gleefully from side to side inside of a special bathing tray. Domestic chinchillas can live upwards to 20 years, so we've got a fun new pet to play with whenever we come back home to Canada to visit family.

This is a Chinchilla and her name is Tuvia and she has been left alone for the weekend. So we're going to be playing with her and doing a bit of babysitting. And she is really cute and she is trying to bite her way through the cage. So let's let her out so you can meet her. Tuvi. Hi Tuvia. Come. Oh, she is thirsty. Woah, you're a cute one. You got her. Hi, Tuvi. Hi. This here is one very smart Chinchilla. When it sees the bag of oats and someone shakes it, it knows exactly where to go. It's lunchtime again Tuvi. Oh, how exciting. How exciting. Do you want to show the camera how you eat oats? Show the camera how you eat oats. This is the best time to pet her because she is so distracted by the oats that she doesn't even mind. And she is so soft. Aren't you Tuvia? Look at you. So, my favorite thing about this Chinchilla is when it takes its bath. She takes a dry bath and some special volcanic powder. She just knocked it. I scared her. In a blue cloud dust. Let's see that. Wow. So, it is not ready yet Tuvia. It is not ready. Oh, Tuvia is excited for her bath. There is no powder in there yet Tuvia. You need to get out. Let's get this ready. She seems a little bit impatient. Wait. Wait. One thing that we were researching before was that Chinchillas can live up to 15 or 20 years. Oh, look at her. Look at you go. Come on, do your rollie rollies. Do your rolly rollies. Come on. Roll-y roll-y. Okay, Tuvia this is the first time I've caught you in my hands. You're always running away. Say, bye to the camera. Bye, Tuvia. Bye, Tuvi. This is part of our Travel in Canada series.

Visiting Sao Paolo was a bit intimidating. We weren't really sure what to expect prior to visiting South America's largest city, however, we found that in that midst of the crowds and chaos there were cool pockets filled with parks, street art, and an abundance of restaurants. For this video, we also had two of our Brazilian friends join us and they were able to provide a unique window into the city.

We also cover off-the-beaten-path activities you won't find in a typical São Paulo tourism brochure or São Paulo, Brasil city tour. 20 Things to do in São Paulo, Brazil Travel Guide and Top Attractions Video Transcript: Within the park grounds you’ll find the Afro-Brasil Museum, which is a contemporary museum that looks at African culture and influence in Brazilian society. And not too far from there, you’ll come across the Museum of Modern Art. Batman Alley is located in Vila Madalena and it has become a popular tourist and Instagram spot. Apparently the place gets its name because the first piece of graffiti to go up was one of Batman back in the 1980s. If you’re a football lover, this is a place you won’t want to miss. Being the foodies that we are, we couldn’t skip the Municipal Market. Here you can find exotic fruits, fresh vegetables, meats, spices and even restaurants. We went there right around the lunch hour to try the famed mortadella sandwich. From there, we visited Sao Paulo Cathedral. We only learned this after our visit, but there’s a crypt you can visit. Next up we headed to the neighbourhood of Liberdade, which has the largest Japanese community in the world outside of Japan. We decided to hit up a sushi buffet for some food! That evening we met up with our Brazilian friends, who took us out for a night on the town. That morning we visited Pinacoteca do Estado, which is a cool art museum that focuses on works by Brazilian artist or works with Brazilian subject matter. After that we headed over to Parque da Luz. This park is right next to the museum and it has a lot of interesting sculptures scattered about. Sao Paulo’s Teatro Municipal first opened in 1911. The Martinelli building is 30 stories high and it was the first skyscraper in South America. And that’s a quick look at how we spent 2 days in Sao Paulo. We hope you enjoyed this guide and that it gave you some ideas on how to tackle South America’s largest city. As always, if you have any other suggestions of fun things to do in Sao Paulo, feel free to share those with us in the comments below.

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

Greek Street Food in Athens, Greece
 
02:46
It's time for another food battle! This time we roam around in Athens, Greece to sample some delicious Greek Street Food. In one corner we have souvlaki pita and in the other gyro pita. Come find out what these two Greek sandwiches are all about in our latest taste test food video. 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/ Greek Street Food in Athens, Greece: Gyros vs Souvlaki Travel Video Transcript: So the sun is starting to set and dinner time is quickly approaching. We've been walking around the Athens flea market and we've worked up an appetite so right now we are stopping for some Greek food. We've found a little joint that is serving up Pita Souvlaki and Pita Gyro. So we've ordered up one of each. Ta da! Doesn't that look good? So yeah, ready for another taste test in Greece. What do we call this in Greece vs back at home? Alright, so here's the deal. Over here it is called Gyros but where I grew up in Canada and also visiting in the US it was called gyro. So it is kind of hard for me to say it as gyros but I'm starting to get used to it. So when you're in Greece call it the gyros. So what is fascinating is that gyros means to turn. It is basically rotisserie meat that is cooked on a skewer and you can have all kinds of different things. There is chicken, pork, lamb. So pick whatever you want and it is stuffed inside of a pita. So enough of me rambling on. Let's actually try it here. Mmmm. That's one of my favorite sandwiches I've had in a while. It's so good. The meat is really tender. I really like the sauce. Tzatziki. Yeah, the tzatziki sauce and you've also got a lot of onions and tomatoes too, so really good stuff. So for mine I got the pita souvlaki. And souvlaki is basically meat on a skewer so it is not shaved meat like Sam's. So I've got nice chunks in there. And also it comes with French fries, onions and tomatoes. And we can't forget the tzatziki sauce which is made with yogurt, garlic and cucumber. Delicious! So I'm going to have another bite here. We've got a quality control bite right now. Mmmmm. So so good guys. So you polished that off quickly. Yeah, I devoured that. Seriously, that was really fast. In terms of price this is basically the cheapest and most affordable meal that you can get in Greece. And it is so delicious. Where we picked it up here, which is a super touristy area, it was 2 Euros each. The giant ones were 3.50 and if you're walking down say more of a residential area, somewhere that is not in a touristy zone, you can pick one up in the one to two Euros range. 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.
