Is it just me or are travel videos which primarily focus on the traveller annoying? I mean great, you went some place interesting. Care to show that instead of your mug or is the narcissism too great?


Sure be nice to see the actual freaking marketplace rather than our genial host.

I’m a sign geek, I’d love to just have a slow pan down all the signage. Or a good look at the infrastructure…lots of fascinating “things” everywhere.


I would have much preferred more B-roll footage and VO narration versus watching this dude walk around with a camera pointed at his face the whole time.
