USA CROSS COUNTRY ROAD TRIP!
Hi! I’m Alicia. Welcome to my little world of travel videos!
I make fun filled travel videos to share my exciting experiences around the world.
I also discuss the latest tech gear and techniques I use to make the videos.
My goal is for my travel videos to be inspirational and useful to those looking to get out there and enjoy (or film) similar travel experiences.
On this blog you’ll find details and links in each post, however, the real excitement is always in the video!
If you’d like to see the video production gear I’m using to make videos, please visit my Amazon shop.
