VIDEO: Costa Rica – Arenal, Monteverde, Montezuma & Manuel Antonio

I recently bought a beautiful new Jack Wolfskin backpack. However, I paid for it not with money, but with a travel video of a trip to Morocco. It was part of their ‘Go Backpack’ promotion.

Delighted with my free bag, and both pleased and proud of my new video souvenir, I decided to give it another go.

With another trip, this time to Costa Rica, on the horizon, I ordered a bigger rucksack (you order first, submit your vid and get a refund later), flew to Central America and set about making travel video number two.

This time I was with my girlfriend, Claudia. We had an incredible trip and once again I have come away with not just a great new rucksack for future trips, but another travel video that we can look back on and treasure for the rest of our lives.

This video features volcano hikes, waterfall swimming, white water rafting, cloud forests, zip lining, TONS of wildlife and so much more.

I really hope you like the video and if you are planning a trip to Costa Rica then feel free to get in touch, we were both really pleased with the way our trip turned out and would be happy to share our itinerary with you.

Here’s the vid, sound tracked by one of my very favourite songs; the wonderfully appropriate ‘Rain’ by PhoenixDown.

VIDEO: Morocco – Fez, Chefchaouen & Hiking in the Rif Mountains

I recently went to Morocco for a week with my mate Danny during Ramadan.

We visited the blue city, Chefchaouen. From there we hiked to the Akchour Waterfall and battled 32 degree heat to summit Jebel el Kelaa in the Rif Mountain range. Possibly the best day hike of my life.

Outdoor brand, Jack Wolfskin have been running a promotion where they offer people the opportunity to pay for new gear with travel videos. I leapt at the chance for a freebie and put my all into making a travel video of our trip.Jack Wolfskin Backpack Morocco

Lo and behold, a month later I have a brand new, awesome backpack, free of charge! But it’s the video of our week of adventure in Morocco that I will treasure the most. Hope you enjoy watching it.
