More information about the video content bellow:
1. The British Virgin Islands were colonized by the Dutch in 1648. The islands were then annexed by the British in 1672. They were administered variously as part of the British Leeward Islands or with St. Kitts and Nevis, with an administrator representing the British Government on the islands. The islands gained separate colony status in 1960 and became autonomous in 1967.
2. The Virgin Islands are in the Caribbean, east of Puerto Rico. The islands belong to a group known as the Leeward Islands which are part of the Lesser Antilles island chain. Other islands in the group include Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Guadeloupe, Montserrat and St Kitts and Nevis. The archipelago of the Virgin Islands is divided into two territories, the British Virgin Islands, and the United States Virgin Islands.
3. Road Town, located on Tortola, is the capital of the British Virgin Islands. It is situated on the horseshoe-shaped Road Harbour in the centre of the island's south coast. The population is about 12.000 people.
4. The British Virgin Islands comprise around 60 tropical Caribbean islands, ranging in size from the largest, Tortola 20 km long and 5 km wide, to tiny uninhabited islets, altogether about 150 square kilometres in extent. Population 28.000. By GDP per capita they are on equal footing with the UK, at 43.400$.
5. The British Virgin Islands have a tropical rainforest climate, moderated by trade winds. Temperatures vary little throughout the year. Hurricanes occasionally hit the islands, with the hurricane season running from June to November. Hurricane Danny (2015) was the most recent until 7 September 2017 when Hurricane Irma caused extensive damage.
6. Tourism accounts for approximately 45% of national income. The islands are a popular destination for US citizens. In 2006 a total of 825,603 people visited the islands.
7. Financial services account for over half of the income of the territory. The majority of this revenue is generated by the licensing of offshore companies. In 2000 over 45% of the world's offshore companies were formed in the British Virgin Islands. In the April 2016 Panama Papers leak, the British Virgin Islands was the most commonly used tax haven by clients of Mossack Fonseca.

It is the world's most mysterious manuscript. A book, written by an unknown author, illustrated with pictures that are as bizarre as they are puzzling -- and written in a language that even the best cryptographers have been unable to decode. No wonder that this script even has a part in Dan Brown's latest bestseller The Lost Symbol.

My name is Kevin Cook. I'm originally from Dallas, TX, but I've been living and traveling in Asia since 2013.
After graduating from university in 2011 and working a few unfulfilling jobs, I saved enough money to move to Asia and work as a teacher for a few years. That opportunity allowed me to travel around and experience new foods and cultures, and ignited a passion for blogging and making videos.
Now I travel full-time and make videos with the goal that I can encourage YOU to pursue your own dream of overseas traveling and living.

SANDANKYO, HIROSHIMA // 三段峡 (Japan Hidden Gems)
If you're looking for things to do in Hiroshima, I would recommend adding Sandakyo to your list. It is absolutely beautiful there and the trek to Sandakyo Gorge isn't too bad either (I'm generally not into hiking but I was ok with this one - not much up/down hill and a beautiful reward awaits at the end of the 50 minute or so hike).
You could also go river kayaking like we did - there's a beginner and advanced course. Though Torii and I have been kayaking many times before, we'd never done river kayaking so we opted for the beginner course which turned out to be a little too easy, but was still nice being out on the water.
Sandakyo is the first of my JAPAN HIDDEN GEMS series which will focus on places in Japan that are lesser known or frequented. My aim is to introduce as many hidden spots as possible and hopefully inspire you to want to experience them for yourselves.
Thank you for watching :)

Sicily Vacation Travel Video Guide
Travel video about destination Sicily in Italy.
Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean and the most diverse region in Italy, a land of gods and natural forces and a place of ancient cultures.Catania, in the northeast of the island, is Sicily’s second largest city that has been strongly influenced by earthquakes and also the volcanic activity of Mount Etna. It is believed that Greek settlers from Chalkidi founded it and some centuries later, it was conquered by the Romans and later, the Arabs brought the city a new wave of prosperity.Noto is a charming town with around 20,000 inhabitants. It is one of the most beautiful enclosed Baroque towns in Sicily. However, many of Noto’s historic buildings have been neglected for many years and are in somewhat less than perfect condition. The Cathedrale Di San Nicolo also fell into disrepair as a result of continued neglect and this caused both its dome and part of its roof to collapse in 1996.A proud and mighty volcano rises above eastern Sicily. Mount Etna, the largest volcano in Europe, is the undisputed ruler of this fascinating Mediterranean island. The snow on the summit region of Etna obscures the fact that deep within the volcano is an unimaginable natural furnace with a temperature of around 1,000 degrees Celsius.Marsala was given its name by the Arabs who called it ‘Marsal-Allah’, ‘God’s Harbor’. The monumental city gate is a reminder of the landing of Giuseppe Garibaldis on the 8th of March, 1860.In the mountain area close to Palermo, another wonderful city featured on our journey, is the picturesque town of Monreale, a townscape that for more than 800 years, has been dominated by a single building. Monreale Cathedral was built due to a struggle for power between the Bishop of Palermo and the Norman King, William.Sicily is exquisite. An ancient island of both discovery and pleasure.

Living on ST THOMAS in the US Virgin Islands | Stefanie Hurtado
After graduating college in the summer of 2012, my best friend Amber and I decided to move to the US Virgin Islands for a little while!
We had never been before, so we flew down for two weeks, to see how we'd like it. Then we went home to prepare. I sold my car and almost all of my belongings to afford the move.
We flew down again in late October, without a job, and with only two friends we had met that first trip, who agreed to let us sleep on their floor for a week.
Within one week, Amber and I found a studio apartment on the beach for $1400 a month ($700 each). We both got jobs working on sail boats and leading snorkel tours for cruise ship tourists. For a couple of girls who had never been on sail boats or snorkeled in the deep blue before, we were in for quite an adventure.
What commenced was one of the craziest, most magical times of my life. Thank you, St Thomas!
Shot and edited in November and December of 2012 on a gopro hero 2. For those asking, I lived in the Virgin Islands on and off for two years. The last time I lived on St Thomas was in 2014.
Check out my blog's archives for an idea what life was like for me in the Virgin Islands:
