Yay! It’s vlog time! Vlogging was seriously the most difficult task I had while traveling. Major props to you Youtubers and vloggers out there. I do have a few videos on my channel from random other adventures, but this one was my first attempt transferring to a more ‘vlog’ style video, where I did some chatting. It’s so hard to get used to talking in public, and even just remembering to keep your camera rolling at all times.

While on my trip to Copenhagen and Berlin, I also did some Insta Stories that people seemed to be really in to. I was so relieved at all the positive feedback I got! Honestly, I am not much for the camera, and I prefer to be the one behind the lens. By the time my trip was coming to a close though, I really missed talking to everyone. I felt like you guys were there with me! It definitely got me out of my comfort zone.

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who watched. My life isn’t glamorous in any way, and I am just a little bit luckier than most people in that I can afford some trips 2-3 times a year. Therefore, I really wanted to share this with you all. I know lots of people don’t have the means to travel, and I hate it. It sucks that money has to come in the way of most things like this. I did Insta Stories and showed my adventures not to make it seem like my life was amazing, but to sincerely and genuinely take you along with me. I hope you enjoyed it, and you got to connect with two cities that you might have not necessarily known too much about. Okay, my heartfelt sappiness is over with!

When you watch this vlog, just know this is also a project in getting out of my comfort zone. In fact, if I really want to go off on a tangent, this whole blog started as a way to get out of my comfort zone. One little step at a time I am getting there. We can be so critical of ourselves on video and in photos, when to other people we seem absolutely normal. It’s definitely hard to watch yourself, and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t struggle with the idea of not posting this.

I hope you guys enjoy my little vlog of 30 minutes (not so little really). I’m not sure if I’ll be doing any sort of vlogs like this again (so dramatic I know), as I think I should focus on one thing instead of running around like a mad man next trip. Follow me over on Instagram for Insta Stories, which for now, is much more my thing…

    1. Thanks Miriam! I definitely need to purchase one! I don’t think I charged my camera the night before fully though either. I found out that if I have a full charge, I didn’t have any issues running out. Oh life!!

  1. I adore that you’ve ventured into vlogging Emily, it really suits you! You’ve got the perfect balance of being behind the camera and in front of it – keep at it, seriously! I’m really impressed.

    1. Thank you Emily! That’s such a nice compliment! I was worried I wasn’t being in front of the camera enough sometimes haha.
