Italy: A cinematic travel film

Eight weeks ago we rented a car in Milan and embarked on a 30 day adventure that would take us on a 2000km journey around Italy.

In 30 days we saw everything from Lake Como & Garda, to the Dolomites, Venice, Cinque Terre, Pisa, Florence, Tuscany, Rome, Amalfi Coast, Matera and Alberobello, Tropea, the beaches and countryside of Sicily and countless hidden gems in between.

Here is the story we captured (Click to watch):


It was an unforgettable trip, and I pushed myself further into the video editing process to reflect both the chaos and beauty of this country that holds so much history. This film certainly took the most effort yet, after shooting for a solid month and sorting through hours of footage. I really hope you enjoy this one! Let me know your thoughts in the comments or on youtube, instagram or facebook.

I’m just now starting on the Greece video, and will be taking a short break from shooting during the rest of our time in Europe to catch my breath. Morocco is coming up in October, and I have a feeling that is going to be a special one!

We’re currently in Croatia, working our way north to Munich over the next couple weeks. This part of the world has surprised me with its beauty, and I’ve been sharing live photos & videos on my instagram stories. Come see what we’re getting up to and say hello!

Happy early fall,

  1. Absolutely outstanding!! I can’t tell you how much I have enjoyed watching your videos, not just for the gorgeous views but for the creativity. So so much talent!! And I am so happy for you!! 😉

  2. Stunning…your videos are as creative as your designs. Thank you for showing us the world’s beauty…

  3. I cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed reading your posts and watching videos like this one. I am just in awe of all the beauty and splendor of both the natural (God-made) and man-made sights you are exploring. Thank you so much for sharing. Your work on this video paid-off, it’s stunning!

  4. Breathtaking! I absolutely enjoyed watching this video – one of your best (or maybe the best so far). Enjoy Croatia and your journey north (maybe passing Austria, my country ?).
    Thanks for sharing this amazing adventures to us.

    1. Thank you Hilda, this may be my favorite so far too! Unfortunately we will probably just be on a train through Austria on our way to Germany. We’ll have to do a separate trip to explore it one day 🙂

  5. So. much. beauty.!! Thank you for sharing your talents and a taste of your trip…the sights and sounds are magnificent. God’s creation is just so stunning. If I ever make it to Europe, I’ll most definitely be referencing your blog/videos to decide where to go. How do you balance the planning & details involved in traveling oversees, film incredible videos, while taking it all in at the same time??

    Enjoy your next stop & thanks again!

    1. Thank you Callie! As far as balance, we go day by day depending on how we feel and don’t really plan in advance. There’s no way you can plan it all for an 8 month trip! It’s a huge help having two people — I couldn’t have done all of this while traveling alone. Some (many) days are jam packed and tiring, but we also make sure to set aside time to rest in between. It’s definitely a fast paced routine but I know things will slow down again as soon as we return home, so you’ve got to live in the moment because life will never be quite like this again 😉

  6. Wow, Very impressive video and so well done. You captured so much beauty in 3 1/2 minutes. How did you get the aerial views? Drone? So very cool!

  7. Amazing! I have always wanted to go to Italy, and have learned so much from your travels. I am being flown to western Germany for work in May of 2018. I am planning to tack on a 10 days afterwards and do some traveling. It will be my first time in Europe. As I follow your journey, it seems every new place you explore becomes a new favourite of yours (and mine).

    1. Awesome! If you are anywhere near the north, Lake Como, Garda and the Dolomites would be my first suggestion. In the south, you can’t miss Rome and the Amalfi Coast… but Sicily is pretty gorgeous too. Have fun!
