“The community on YouTube I found is just so supportive, who are also just feeling that itch to travel like I am. So, it’s a good way to meet like minded people. And I love that it’s also this way for us to have a creative outlet as well.”
The pair is based out of London, but they are rarely ever home as their channel is based on travelling. Content includes daily videos of their trips, informative videos about other cultures they experience and overall fun travel tips and advice for viewers. There’s a glamorous stereotype of being an online social media creator, such as a travelling youtuber. Marc reveals that it’s not all it’s cracked up to be.
“People have their laptops and their sitting on a beach drinking martinis. But you actually might be in a stuffy room, with mosquitoes attacking you and internet going in and out constantly. So its definitely not all its cut out to be, all of the time.”
“If YouTube died tomorrow, all of the people who are currently only youtubers would want to find some other creative outlet. And if that’s the way they make their basic income then they’d have to find another source of income.”
“Be yourself and be authentic and write or post or make videos about things you really care about. Because that will be immediately apparent to whoever is looking at it.”
