Our favourite of the collection is from his time travelling through Canada and the rocky mountains.

A great soundtrack, followed by some great editing and videography will have you coming back for more than one viewing.

4. Benjamin Williams – Finding Freedom

Filmed in Fiji, Benjamin Williams captures the essence of travelling in his 100% GoPro shot video. Published over two years ago, the short has drone amazing drone shot, perfect scenery, a great voice over and surfing. This video seriously made us want to go and visit Fiji and buy a new GoPro. One of our favourite moments is the quote towards the end of the video:

“You will always be able to make more money, but you cannot make more time. We are all dying, but only a select few are truly living”.

5. Tim Kellner – Greenland

Tim Kellner
makes some of the shortest, most inspiring travel videos we’ve seen on YouTube. If you’re looking for a quick fix, or want to see some of most artistic shots of countries and cities like Hong Kong, Japan, New York and Jamaica then check out his channel. Tim’s vision of Greenland is a favourite of ours from his channel, a little more ‘dark’ than our other choices, the video captures the vastness and tranquility of Greenland.
