VIDEO: Our Year in Travel

1,266 videos and 11 hours of footage all wrapped up in 3-minutes.

We never claim to be vloggers which is probably why you hardly saw any videos from our travels last year. Most are short clips of random things that don’t really make sense on their own, so we didn’t bother sharing.

But now that we’re home, Gerard decided to take on this massive project and put together all those random videos to sum up our year-long adventure around the world. It wasn’t easy, but after weeks of sorting and countless hours of editing, it’s finally ready. A labor of love and a trip down memory lane. We hope you enjoy it.

    You guys should be vloggers…that was amazing!

    • Kieu – GQ trippin

      Haha.. it’s a lot of work. =P Luckily, Gerard was able to out them all together and make sense of them. I shot a lot of random junk that didn’t make the cut. Lol

  • eyehearthoodies

    <3 it. <3 you guys more.

  • Anna Heher

    AMAZING video!! SO inspiring! :)

    Very well done! This belongs on the main page somewhere. It captures the trip as succinctly as you’d hope to. Seeing that, I wonder how vivid the memory of my trip could’ve been if I had taken the time to video it.
    I’m trusting my imagination and on balance I think I gained as much not worrying about the camera. But seeing this awesomeness makes me wonder :)

    • Gerard ~ GQtrippin

      That home page tip isn’t a bad idea. :)

  • Dianne Rambke

    Amazing video!

  • Amy & Kieron

    And this is why you two are our favorites! Love this, great job G!

    • Gerard ~ GQtrippin

      Thanks guys! Wonder what would’ve been possible if we had better equipment. Our P&S didn’t do too bad though. :)

  • GetACarHire

    This was so much full of AWESOME! I want to eat every one of that delicious things that you ate! =) Is it strange that out of the whole video, only the eating part stuck with me?!

    • Gerard ~ GQtrippin

      Nope. It’s what we did best on this trip. :)

  • The World Wanderer

    I just cried a little, okay a lot, while watching this. Sums up all the reasons why people need to see the world. Absolutely beautiful! xx

    • Kieu – GQ trippin

      Haha.. thanks!

  • JulikaSarah

    This gave me goosebumps! An incredibly beautiful summary of your adventures!

    I absolutely love your video! We’ve seen some of those places, and there are a whole lot more we haven’t, but watching your video made me get excited about travel all over again (even though we’re currently halfway through our own journey). Really clever, really beautiful, really fun! Thanks for sharing it.

    • Kieu – GQ trippin

      There’s still the other half to enjoy. :) We’re itching to get back out. Haha. Thanks for watching, Lana.

  • Roddy

    Money and time, easy.

    I just landed in Morocco, country #73 – it has been on my bucket list for over a decade. I emailed my best mate and he replied with a link to this video. Absolutely wonderful – it is inspiring, I must do something like it myself.

    • Kieu – GQ trippin

      Wow #73?! Awesome. I’d like to visit Morocco one day. Just start filming a bunch of random stuff even if it don’t make sense. :D

  • Andrew

    Re-inspired. Thanks guys!

    Awwww This is great! I was feeling sort of jaded and “over traveling” so to speak and then I watched this. Definitely re-inspired. :)

    • Kieu – GQ trippin

      Aww I’m glad we got the bug back in yah – it’s quite contagious you know. :P

  • Bikeguy

    Absolutely brilliant! Made me cry. Also made me jealous. What a great video. Loved that you went to Indiana. That was the biggest surprise for me in the video.

    • Kieu – GQ trippin

      Lol, I hope you meant India. But I’d love to visit Indiana one day too. :P Thanks for watching our video!

      • Bikeguy

        I heard “in Vienna” as Indiana, hence the error! I’d have picked Vienna over Indiana too.

        • Kieu – GQ trippin

          HAHAHA.. omg that’s hilarious. :P

  • Adelina W

    This is AMAZING! I loved the video from beginning to end. Its inspired me to shoot more video and just get going. Great stuff.

    • Kieu – GQ trippin

      Thanks! Definitely shoot more even if you don’t think it’ll make any sense.. that’s what I did. LOL

      • Adelina W

        Haha, sounds like a good strategy. I did that at the beginning, but then soon gave up. Should have kept going!

        What did you shoot with?

        • Kieu – GQ trippin

          Our Canon S100.

  • Anne

    I adore your video! I literally watched it 10 times over the last few days as inspiration for my SE Asia adventure :-) and I def need a videocamera!

    • Kieu – GQ trippin

      Thanks! We used our Canon S100 point and shoot for this one so no need to invest in a video camera.. just a bigger memory card. hehe :)

  • Bernadette Jackson

    Wow! That’s just amazing. You’ve just made me smile all the way through, and realise yet again that I’m still completely addicted to travel. Great editing too. Thank you so much for sharing.

    • Kieu – GQ trippin

      Thanks for watching, Bernadette! Gerard worked on it for weeks so I’ll let him take the editing credit. :)

  • Frank Seidel

    Congratulations guys! This is probably the best illustration to “Adventure of a life time” I have ever seen, and working in international volunteering, I have seen a few. I envy you for all the things you’ve seen and done and eaten. Keep going, there are still many adventures ahead!

    • Kieu – GQ trippin

      Thank you Frank! Yes, many many more adventures ahead indeed.

  • suzyguese
