4 Travel Vloggers You Should Be Following
Travel is the ideal way to capture the feeling of how we experienced life when we were younger; it’s a way to slow down the flow of time that wears down our daily lives. This is the reason why, when we travel, we feel the need to record it – so that we can come back again and again, to remember the beautiful moments and experiences we’ve had. This is essentially what vloggers do – record experiences, inviting us to share them along the way.

Christoph Rehage became world-famous for just the hair on his head – sort of. In 2008, he walked 4500 kilometres across China, taking a photo of himself every day. He then had the brilliant idea of using the photos to make a timeline of his trip, the length of the journey demonstrated by his growing hair and beard. 49 million views later, Christoph is (unbelievably) still going, and you can follow his walk from China to his home village of Bad Nenndorf, Germany at https://thelongestway.com/.
Matthew Karsten, also known as Expert Vagabond, lives life to the limit. In every video on his YouTube channel, he’s done some kind of extreme acrobatic feat or risked losing his life, seemingly for fun. He does everything with style in every country he visits (and there are plenty!) and has managed to turn his passion into a profession. No, we’re not jealous at all.
These travel bloggers all have ways to make their ideas stand out. If you’re an aspiring travel blogger and want to share your passion with the rest of the world, all you need to do is find your own way to present it. Don’t follow the beaten track – see what makes you unique!

The best videos are both professional and entertaining. A good solution is to use voice-overs in your travel videos. Voice-over can help to improve your personal narrative, directing the viewer.

Through Voquent, you can find the voice actor who’ll best suit your video’s needs, so you can become the world’s next viral travel vlogger! Sounds exciting, doesn’t it?
