Pisa is one of most beautiful Tuscan towns, famous worldwide for its leaning tower. But Pisa has many jewels, for example one can enjoy the beautiful vista of the banks of the river Arno, an ancient market located in the heart of the town (Piazza delle Vettovaglie), the famous Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles) with the Duomo (The Cathedral), the Battistero (The Baptistery) and the Torre di Pisa (The Tower of Pisa).

Japan - Capsule Hotel

Dont stay here if you're claustrophobic. I didnt think places like this were for real, but i guess i was wrong. $23/night isn't bad though.

Canada - Quebec - ice hotel

A quick look at the ice hotel in Quebec.

Australia - Sydney - Bondi Beach

A travel video that shows Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia. The current was strong so lifeguards were asking people to come out of the water, but this video still gives you a good idea of what to expect at the beach.

Microsoft is entering the travel video arena

Looks like Microsoft has big plans to integrate community generated travel video into its site, maybe they'll take on TripVlogs as a partner :).

"We'll announce a new travel section where we go from what has been essentially a booking page to something more expansive with research and lots of user-generated content throughout the network," he said. "Later on we will expand it to offer the ability to upload photos to our user base and more video content, including user-created video," he said.

Thailand - Koh Samui - Chaweng Beach

Koh Samui is beautiful. Getting to Thailand is a long plane trip, but totally worth it. Bungaloes 10 feet from Chaweng beach can be had for $40-$50 a night and the beach is beautiful. I flew into Bangkok for two days and then bought a ticket at the airport to Koh Samui for something like $80 each way, no reservation required. When I got to the airport for departure there were booths with brochures for each bungalow and we had them make a reservation for us. We also took a tour around the island that included a ride on an elephant and a coconut retrieving monkey. This place is a great bang for the buck. Note: Video content provided by

Cambodia - Angkor Wat

Simply Awesome! And be sure to check out their website which documents their amazing travels.

Angkor Wat, the jewel of Cambodia, and a source of pride and inspiration for the Cambodian people was worth all the hellacious bus rides and poverty and hardship we were witness to while there. No photos can do justice to this series of temples which make up the world's largest religous monument. Cambodia was an excercise in opposites you cannot have one without the other.

Florida - Crystal River - Snorkeling with Manatee

One of the only places it is legal to interact with manatees is Crystal River. Even here, you must remain on the surface, not chase the manatee and only touch with one hand. Content provided by YouTube.

Looks a bit choppy, but definitely nice for windsports.

Peru - Machu Picchu

A glimpse into what its like to sit atop of Machu Picchu.

The ruins of Machu Picchu, rediscovered in 1911 by Yale archaeologist Hiram Bingham, are one of the most beautiful and enigmatic ancient sites in the world. While the Inca people certainly used the Andean mountain top (9060 feet elevation), erecting many hundreds of stone structures from the early 1400's, legends and myths indicate that Machu Picchu (meaning 'Old Peak' in the Quechua language) was revered as a sacred place from a far earlier time. -

Tortola: Bomba Shack (full moon party)

A glimpse into the Bomba Shack on Tortola. This is truly one of the craziest parties that I have ever experienced, not a place to take the kids. However, this is the BVI's so everything that happens there is legal. Essentially the Bomba Shack is just that - a shack that looks like it is barely standing but has many rooms and is decorated with pictures of Bomba and random tourists, and writings that people have made on the walls. The full moon party actual takes place in a field across from the shack, there is live music, a bar, food vendors, and of course the tea serving area. Sebastians hotel is about 50 yards down the street from the party, so its a great place to stay when attending the party.

Tortola BVI - Sebastians Hotel Overview

A brief overview of Sebastians Hotel and its beach and restaurant area. The people working at Sebastians are not so nice, but the food is good and it is right on the beach.

St. Thomas - Sapphire Beach Resort Beach Area

A 360 degree view and some commentary regarding the Sapphire Beach Resort on St. Thomas in the U.S Virgin Islands.

St. John Sugar Mill Ruins

The Sugar Mill Ruins are about a 2.7 mile hike from the main road. Besides the ruins there is alsoa really great beach, just remember to turn to your right at a not-so-clearly marked sign and hike about a quarter mile to it. I saw a number of interesting fish and a 4 foot sting ray jumping out of the water.

St. Thomas Maegans Bay Beach - 360 degree view

A short video shot in January 2006 that gives you a good idea what to expect from the beach at Maegans Bay in St. Thomas. This beach is the nicest on the island, is not wavy, and has fine powder sand. You will rarely step on a rock here. The beach is also great for bbq's, there is also a decent little food stand, and you can easily hang out there for an entire day on your trip.
