Are you bored and at home during another coronavirus lockdown? Are you starting to feel like this damn thing will never end. Is your passport collecting dust as we speak? If you are longing for a holiday and adventure to somewhere else, this post is for you. Read on for some of my favourite travel YouTubers, that you can spend your weekend binge watching.
Cofounded by Thomas Brag, Ammar Kandil, Matt Dajer, and Derin Emre this channel looks at pushing yourself out of your comfort zone. With videos like Travelling to the “worst” country in Europe to 7 days in Syria...This series goes beyond pure travel, it teaches about other cultures, history and goes deeper into world issues.
Eamon and Bec are a Canadian couple who have been travelling North America, Europe and North Africa in their Mercedes Sprinter. This couple are true travel goals, as they have a successful Chai Tea business Chaiwalachai, and are able to work remotely. Their YouTube channel is very successful as well, and it is obvious why. Their videos are super binge-worthy. E & B also post vegan recipes, which is great for all you guys wanting to be plant-based. Currently, this couple are living in a cabin in the woods in Canada, but they continue to post content weekly. Worth a subscribe to keep up with their latest adventures.
Sadly, Bec was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2021. She has documented her battle with. breast cancer over the last year and came out the other side! Amazing couple and truly an inspiration.
A couple that have a fun YouTube channel chronicling their world travels. Super upbeat, forever positive and travelling the globe. They saw over 100 countries, and are now focusing on unique experiences and challenges around the world.
Aimee and Craig are a young couple from Wales who have been travelling and vlogging for years. They both have had near death experiences, with Aimee a cancer survivor and Craig breaking his neck on a trip in New Zealand. They seem like such a lovely couple, and are so enjoyable to watch.
Elayna and Riley are an Australian couple who are sailing their boat La Vagabonde around the world. They bought the boat in Italy with zero prior knowledge of how to sail. They’re now a family and have their second child along the way. The couple have been sailing the world for 6 whole years!
Overlanders Jolie and Mark are an Australian couple who plan to drive from Australia to the UK. They made it to Iran where their trip came to a nightmare end. The two were imprisoned for months in Iran, but were luckily set free. They are currently in Australia due to COVID-19, but will be heading back onto the road once the borders open. Their channel is full of amazing cinematography and I love that they have visited places off the beaten track. Ever wanted to see what Tajikstan has to offer? They’re your guys.
Drew is a young guy who has been travel vlogging for years. I find his videos about those countries that are less travelled to especially interesting. His video on North Korea has over 10 million views and is super insightful.
An American man, Swedish woman and their young baby sailing the world. This couple have been sailing every ocean for over 10 years now. Their channel is very real, showing the daily life of living on a boat, the dangers and the adventure. The family are completely off-grid, generating their own power and water. What a dream.
British Ben, Australian Leah and their dog Alaska have been on the road for many years now. Their YouTube channel starts off with Ben in his kombi, picking up people along the way. Now they have over 500,000 subscribers and are living in a van during the pandemic. Currently they’re going around Europe.
Dan Grec has travelled around the world in his 4×4 vehicle. His latest videos are centred around advice on how to travel, overland, and get sponsors. His channel is great for those who want to become an overlander, and need some tips.
Dave and Deb are the creators behind The Planet D. Their videos are super informative on the top places to see around the world.
So I hope you enjoyed my 2nd part of the series inspired by COVID-19. YouTubers to watch while you’re in COVID lockdown.
