Check out our latest video for Lonely Planet...
You've seen the "rough" version earlier from our Las Vegas trip (I know, you're sick of Vegas already!) but I just wanted to share the whole premise of this video.
Inspired by "Experimental Travel" (Rachael Antony and Joel Henry), a book that dishes out alternative and playful ways of making the travel experience unique, immersive, and to say the least, quirky. Examples are exploring your own town by becoming a weekend backpacker - stay in a hostel, gallivant with other backpackers and see your town through their eyes, ...risk becoming either a local stranger or a strange local...?), or finding a dog and letting the dog take you for a walk! (Good luck trying that with Fox, whose favorite walk is to the car). Whether it's the Tenderloin or Tunisia, there are creative ways to explore and experience a place other than the classic travel routes.
So, back to Vegas, one of the world's high-priced travel destination, and what did I do?
Spend as little -most cases none- as possible. Now, on with the show... Enjoy!
