Tips on making the most of your urban travel adventures from some of YouTube’s biggest travel stars.
You don’t need to be trekking in the desert or scaling a mountain to live in the open. This state of mind—which embraces living bravely, openly, joyfully—can be cultivated in any environment, even the most urban. It’s about a forging a connection with the world (and the people) around us, seizing every moment (whatever the weather) in the pursuit of greatness, and finding inspiration in the everyday.
To bring this mindset to life, we tapped some of the best travel experts from around the world. If you’ve been bitten by the travel bug and love watching others share their dispatches from places near and far, our Live In The Open (LITO) City Series guides may be familiar.
Kara & Nate – New York City
“New York City is one of our favorite cities in the world. It has an indescribable energy that you can’t help but be inspired by. After traveling to 96 countries all around the world, nothing quite compares to the complexity and uniqueness you can find here, and we love how it feels so familiar yet so foreign at the same time. There is a little bit of something for everyone, and no matter how many times we visit, there’s always a new adventure to be had!”
We’ve been on the road for four years, making travel vlogs on YouTube with the goal of visiting 100 countries by 2020!
“Finding natural spaces in an urban environment is important to us, because something about being surrounded by nature gives you a feeling of peace and contentment like nothing else can. It’s nice to get away from the hustle and bustle every once in awhile and just take moments to breathe fresh air and take in beautiful views.”
Lloyd & Yaya – London
This travel vlogger duo decided to explore London by following the natural border that separates the city—the Thames River. From their home in Greenwich, through parks and iconic landmarks, Hand Luggage Only focused on sharing secret spots and landmarks that really let the creativity of the city shine.
We are all about find new and exciting aspects of travel. For us, delving into the natural world is just such an incredible experience and we love how nature can be enjoyed even in the biggest cities.
