Always wanted to travel the world, but too busy, too broke, or too lazy to travel? There are plenty of people who share their travels, adventures, and experiences on youtube. I was skeptical of watching these YouTube videos until I realized just how awesome it is being able to experience these amazing destinations and adventures vicariously through them.
While nothing actually beats the nomadic adventure of exploring our crazy wonderful planet by our own foot, watching it through amazing photography and videography comes as a close second. Think of it as a more personalized Travel Channel.
Let me introduce you to my favorite travel vloggers of all times...Louis Cole. Louis Cole is a British daily vlogger who travels around the world recording all of his crazy adventures. He has 2 million subscribers and one of the most influential people on youtube.
While he may not have the most subscribers he is one of the first YouTubers to be granted access to Vlog and document in North Korea. He has also traveled in his own two-person plane, with a friend around the world in 90 days to make a documentary on global diversity.
He currently is working as a part of the London2Africa Cycle, which he is trying to accomplish a mission in which he cycles, from London to Africa. To figure out how he does this and to witness more of his extravagant adventures, go to his channel on FunForLouis.
2. Lost Leblanc
Christian LeBlanc is a daily vlogger from Canada, with 587,000 subscribers. He quit his 9-5 in the corporate world to pursue his passion for traveling the world and create films that document his travels.

3. Mr. Ben Brown

GrrrlTraveler, also known as Christine Kaaloa, is a gal that travels around the world all by herself. She currently has 65 thousand subscribers on youtube and is full of travel vlogs, travel tips, and survival tips for traveling on your own. She has two mottos. One being "Before you take that vacation, you need to survive it" and she sure does she have tips to survive your next vacation.
Her next motto is "Travel Survival: Finding your GRRR in solo travel". Her main mission on youtube is to help inform her viewers of the many destinations and what "things to do" at each spot around the world. She documents her great times, as well as the new food, finds she finds :) She like many of the other YouTubers has a blog if that's more your style, and you can find it at https://grrrltraveler.comx/.
Besides FunForLouis, The Vaga Brothers, while new to my watch list, is definitely my second favorite travel channel. The Vaga Brothers are both California Natives, who view their successful youtube channel as a youtube travel show for our global generation. Together Alex and Marko have become award-winning travel videographers, photographers, and writers.
They have a mission to explore our amazing planet and connect with the younger generation to help inspire and encourage them to do the same. The channel serves as inspiration destinations, travel information, and pure second-hand enjoyment of their travels that really make you feel that you are with them.
Last, but definitely not least, the food mogul himself Mark Wiens. Mark Wiens is a full-time travel eater with 1.9 MILLION subscribers. He believes that the main inspiration and the main goal of traveling should be experiencing the food.
He has tried some of the nicest cuisines while abroad, as well as some of the more bizarre and crazier cuisines that not many would dare to try in their entire lifetimes. To second hand try the crazy foods follow his channel on youtube at Mark Wiens. He also has a vlogging channel, if that better suits your style and it is at Mark Wiens Vlogs.
