A Modern South Africa Journey

We received a submission from a man named Mendel, who shot some fantastic footage while in South Africa. The cinematography is mesmerizing, transporting this nation’s beautiful land, culture, and people right to you. You can really see in the genuine, smiling faces of children and adults how beautiful we all are and the underlying harmony that always wishes to emerge. Watch and notice you can feel the peace that Mendel celebrates all throughout this video.  

Here is a message from the creator: “Hi there! My name is Mendel & I recently visited South Africa with my wife. I brought my camera with me & shot a bunch of video footage & I just finished editing a short documentary. I ended up inspired by the story of what took place in the country the past couple decades with the fall of Apartheid, while also aware of the challenges which remain ahead. It’s also Heritage day in South Africa today!”

A Country Reborn

In honor of Heritage day in South Africa! ?? Enjoy this short & inspiring travel video I shot on my last visit!

College Student Quits School To Follow His Dream


Do you want to work for someone else’s dream? Or yours?

Yes, sometimes following a passion can be risky. Passions don’t always stay on the path society has laid out for us. Danny McGee knows this all too well. He went to college just like he was “supposed to,” but he still always found himself wanting to travel and experience the world outside of a classroom. So against the urgings of others, he took the risk.

This video will show you what came of his decision to drop out of college and go in the direction of his passion. Even going into the unknown, we will always know we are on the right path as long as we stay with our passions.

Only one way to find out: click this link, and pass it on to others to encourage them to follow their path.

Why Do We Travel?

Going to new, far off places can be exciting, scary, enlightening–so many things. Commonly, we think about traveling as a way to “get away,” relax, and have fun. Or to experience a new culture, see impressive works of art and architecture, try new food, meet new people.

But have you ever thought about the nuances of why we travel and what it does for us on a mental level? Jason Silva has some intriguing insight you may have never considered, about the psychological, metaphysical aspects of being in a brand new unfamiliar place. Hear his thoughts on what traveling does for us on a deeper level.
