The rise of YouTube and other video sharing sites has brought to everyone’s attention some epically awesome travel videos, and now we can’t live without them! Here at gapyear.com we spend far more time than is healthy browsing the net for cool travel videos, and while those truly viral ones are difficult to come by, we just like seeing the world in motion.
Over the last few years some incredibly inspirational videos have found their way online, such as the legendary antics of ‘Dancing Matt’, and also some brilliantly funny ones, such as ‘Gap Yah’, which features a side-splitting parody of the ‘typical’ gap year traveller. We even managed to grab an interview with Matt Lacey, the creator of the latter.
