To be honest, when I heard about these videos I didn’t think it would interest me. An apparently inspirational figure repeating a tired formula whilst highlighting many of the worlds wonders I may never see. Great.
ALAS! Yet again, much like the first time I watched Where The Hell is Matt, I was enraptured, inspired and left with an irremovable smile upon face.
