I'm a 23 year old traveler who loves exploring the world and creating beautiful cinematic content! I love going places few have been and doing things no one does.
Exploring With Cody it's good to know you have a variety of experiences. You're young so you're free to do odd jobs here and there. But what happens when you settle down, get married and have kids? Will you still be a youtuber? Have you thought that far ahead? Just wondering how your career will change.
I'll be talking about that in my video next week but it isn't as simple as most people think. I haven't traveled much in the past 3 months because Youtube ad rev has been super low, so I'm home right now doing odd jobs like construction, freelance video and drone work, and a wedding here and there. Before I got into youtube I was a full time wedding videographer and I worked at a gas station during the week.

I'm hopping to go to Paris again as its the last place I went on a family holiday when I was younger so I want to experience what it's like now that I am almost 30 years old.. Thanks for all your tips Cody keep posting your vlogs I enjoy your stuff and the images you catch.
Will you ever meet back up with the exploring crew with Josh and Steve?
If you don't I understand people need a new start and try new things.
Take care of yourself and good luck with whatever the future brings to you (hopefully all good things). Love from Adrian (Adi) Boston, England all the best bro.
Hey Cody fantastic video, I am trying to encourage my friends to travel more so even though I knew some of these already, I will for sure share the video. One thing my friends ask me a lot is how do I travel alone? Is it scary? They say they don't think they could go anywhere alone. So a video about that would be cool too. I'd like to hear what other World travellers do and how they think about it.
I know you didn’t mention this, but fundraising was the main way I helped pay for a $1200 trip to Guatemala (including airfare, hotel stay, and food). I only ended up paying $100 out of pocket for the trip!
I couldn't thank you enough Cody. I'm actually planning a trip to see my friend on the opposite side of my country, and this really helped! I'll be referring back to this video plenty for sure! Can't wait to see what the exploring crew does next!
You make me feel like I can do this to.I just discovered you and Josh & Steve & John this last summer . I have got my notifications on for all you guys so I don't miss a thing. I always feel like I have had a little adventure after I watch you. Thanks for the fun
Scandinavia is expensive, European countries probably like tips, Austrians are Nazi lovers, Swiss are strange, Denmark is the happiest country in Europe, Dutch are Marijuana smokers, French roads are great, Catalans and Spaniards don't like each other, Basques are isolated. Portugal is poor. Albania=mafia, Southern Italy=Mafia, Balkan nations don't like each other. Hungary=beautiful women, Romania=Poor, Ukraine=war torn. Russia=don't drink vodka, Turkey=liberal muslims. India=overpopulated, China=don't mention communism. Africa=military rule in almost every country.
The difference between a one-way ticket and a roundtrip has nothing to do with terrorism or any type of airport or airline security... Roundtrip excursion fares have always been more cost effective than a one-way full coach fare. Whether you're travelling Internationally or Domestically. These lower cost RT excursion fares are cheaper depending on when you travel and what day of the week. This is largely due to airlines needing to fill their seats on days less travelled by the public such as on a Wednesday...even better when it's a Wednesday to Wednesday roundtrip flight. The most popular days of the week are of course weekend days from Friday through Sunday. Monday travellers are typically business travel...Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursday's are usually the slower travel days with fewer people flying. This is why Airline's discount those days and offer better deals to consumers willing to change their travel dates. It is good to advise to purchase these tickets if you are flying internationally as international travel is more expensive... but a rule of thumb just to be courteous...contact the airline once you get home and cancel your return flight...the return portion of your ticket will still be good for flying another time should you ever go back. You just have to pay the change fees and any fare increases that may have occurred since buying the ticket.
All great tips! We travel a lot! We have 6-8 trips a year... In '17 we did 13... Since we have 4 kids and travel with 7 kids 4 adults we use Groupon the most! We also buy season passes to a amusement park/water park every year in a state a couple states away so that we always have something to stop and do on our way somewhere else....! Thanks for the tips! I think we will try Airbnb next
I live in Wisconsin been up here for two years should go to surrounding states first today I went to mall of America which is about an hour drive from me so saved tons of money on airfare and hotel haven’t been in ten years
You'll have to forgive me for a laugh on scheduling things ahead. My father had itineraries that might as well have been carved in stone. The funny thing he found was that it was often cheaper to take a flight with a connection in the place you wanted to go and forget to go to the destination of your ticket; Los Angeles to Houston, connecting at D/FW, you get off the plane at D/FW and don't get on the connecting flight and you've saved yourself $200. One of his reps had the stones to sell the connecting ticket, but that was before the TSA went berserk. Keep exploring.
I copied this from another comment I answered but to notify you and help out "I'll be talking about that in my video next week but it isn't as simple as most people think. I haven't traveled much in the past 3 months because Youtube ad rev has been super low, so I'm home right now doing odd jobs like construction, freelance video and drone work, and a wedding here and there.

My first trip outside of Europe was to Sri Lanka with uni this year (as I am a tourism student) and I really recommend going there as it is really cheap and has such beautiful culture and nature! I have now fallen in love with south Asia and I can't wait to explore more countries over there!
Bed bugs are tough, usually you can gauge by a hotel/hostel entrance if it's "dirty" but I always check before settling down in the room. Human behaviors also changes depending on the country, but any time I feel sketched out in a situtation I just leave. But I will try to come up with some better ones for future videos.
