So many of us like to spend a portion of our free time on the internet. And one way or another, a lot of us find ourselves on YouTube. This is a platform for creators and viewers alike, to share their creativity and common interests. One of the things I personally love to do while browsing this website, is find new and exciting places around the world and hear their stories. There are a lot of skilled professionals, who have dedicated their lives to sharing the beauty of the world around us through their storytelling lens. That’s why today, I’m going to tell you more about four of my favorite ones.

My favorite part of his storytelling is how he gives fascinating individuals all around the world a platform to share their life’s stories and their cultural experiences. He doesn’t shy away from unpopular places, as he has visited almost every country in the world, including places where there is an ongoing military situation. His real and raw portrayal of everyday life around the world is as fascinating as it is inspiring and eye-opening. This is definitely a channel for everyone looking to experience the world around us in a new way.
