They Are Living With CROCODILES (Burkina Faso)

COULD YOU EVER TOUCH A LIVING CROCODILE?

When I arrived in Burkina Faso's capital of Ouagadougou yesterday, I was not planning to touch a living crocodile. But I did. And it was absolutely one of the scariest, most thrilling moments of my life.

Could you do ever it?

On Instagram? Join me for better stories there! @DrewBinsky

PS - No crocodiles were harmed in the making of this video. They are considered sacred to the villagers here who have been living side by side for centuries. The locals do not drug them. They do not feed them. These are simply crocs living in their natural habitat. Thanks for watching.

What Can $10 Get in LAGOS, NIGERIA? (craziest city)

► Tayo's Channel:
► INSTAGRAM? Join me:

HELLO FROM LAGOS, NIGERIA -- COUNTRY #175!! ???????? I truly had a lot of fun making this video inside Africa's craziest and most populated city. Did you know that over 20 million people are living in Lagos?! It is hands down one of the most hectic, chaotic and vibrant places I've ever been with a LOT of stories to tell. I'm overwhelmed.

My local friend and YouTuber named Tayo (his channel linked below) has been taking me all around his bustling city and we've had an absolute blast together. Surprisingly, this was one of the hardest videos I've ever made because it's REALLY challenging to shoot content on these streets. People don't like being on the camera here and they make a huge commotion in the streets and ask for money (etc) whenever they see it from a distance.

In any regard, I hope you enjoy this episode of my $10 series and get a glimpse into local Nigerian culture. More to come tomorrow!

ANGRY COP in BURKINA FASO | Motorcycle World Tour | Africa #31

I set out to leave Ivory Coast to enter Burkina Faso, known during colonization as Alto Volta. There has been an attack on the French embassy and because of my beard the police search every inch of my bags. The Carnet de Passages is totally unknown on the border I want to enter... Bureaucracy is not my favorite activity and neither, it seems, is it that of the customs agents around here...

I Was Forced Into Polygamy in Rural Tanzania (#37)

This is a story of love in a hopeless place. It takes place in Rombo, in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro and hours away from Moshi. One man, in search of banana liquor (mbege), stumbles upon a situation that will change his life. On this day he will take the first steps to becoming a true Chagga man with more than one wife.

The Country of (too many) Babies...

► SUBSCRIBE for daily travel videos:
► INSTAGRAM? Join me @drewbinsky!

This country has too many babies.

The West African nation of Niger has the highest annual growth rate in the world, at 3.8%. The average Nigerien women has 7.2 babies.

If they continue reproducing at this speed, then their population is expected to TRIPLE by the year 2050, from 21 million to 63 million people. Right now, more than half of the society is under 15 years old.

These statistics are alarming.

What are you thoughts about overpopulation? Did you even know that this is happening in Niger (and all over West Africa?)

Francis Kéré: African architecture should stop copying the West

African architecture should stop copying the West, engage the real needs of the people and regard the environment, says Diébédo Francis Kéré.

Looking at the housing situation in West Africa, architect Diébédo Francis Kéré (Kéré Architecture) says that Africans should stop imitating the Western way of building and rather adapt it to their own needs – and the needs of the community – in order to cope better with the weather patterns in the region.

Due to the lack of a secure income, people build their houses themselves... and as models, they just copy the neighbouring house. In this part of the world, we only have one school for architecture, says Kéré.

Kéré believes the built environment in Africa should adapt to nature, while maintaining the cultural richness of the people.

He talks about his dream to make things better in his home country of Burkina Faso and tells how he has been introducing traditional building techniques that allow for natural ventilation to the communities in West Africa. By giving the community a framework within which to work, he encouraged the people of Burkina Faso to build houses that breathe.

Looking at various architectural projects in West Africa, Kéré points to the merits of clay building techniques.

While I constantly try to find the positives in every place I visit, there are few places that I just simply didn't enjoy.

The country of Brunei is one of them.

I went to Brunei back in 2014, three years before I made videos, but my negative experiences in the country have stuck in my mind ever since. That, combined with its absurd human rights laws such as stoning to death LGBT members, I was pushed to make this video.

Have you ever visited any countries that you didn't enjoy? Please share below, I'm curious to know.

I Didn't Plan to Come Here... (Country #150)

TEXT ME! +1 310 349 3854

Today I woke up thinking I was flying from Chad to Mali. But due to an unexpected flight cancellation (on my 2nd leg), I was left in Lomé, Togo for 24 hours. I definitely wasn't mad about it because it means that I have the chance to explore a new place! It's country #150 and also my very first time in West Africa.

Here's what I discovered over 24 hours in Togo. Have you ever been before?

What Can $10 Get You in NEPAL?

???? My JUST GO APP is here! Connect w/ travelers for free:
✅ SUBSCRIBE for more travel videos:



When most people think of Nepal, they think about Mt. Everest -- but did you know that Nepal has a fascinating culture and it's one of the most budget-friendly countries in all of Asia? Nepal is often overlooked by its neighboring countries (India), but you should really give it a chance on your next trip to Asia!

The first time I tried visiting Nepal (April 25, 2015), I was literally on the airplane (from Delhi) when the devastating 7.9 earthquake struck, and therefore had to cancel my trip. It was very scary as I felt the rumbles on the runway in Delhi. But nonetheless, I was so happy to get the chance to explore Kathmandu, Nepal for the first time and make the next episode of my $10 series.

Please Note that this video is about a year old (I am reposting the entire '$10 series' as I only shared it on FB and not YT). As you'll notice, the editing is not great and it moves way too fast, but I still wanted to share it with you anyways. As always, thanks for watching my videos!

West Africa Adventure Ep 3: Accra, Ghana ???????? To Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso ????????

Hey guys,

Welcome back to the channel. On this video, I traveled from Accra Ghana ???????? to Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso ????????.

Ouagadougou is the capital of Burkina Faso and to get to Ouagadougou from Accra, we had to cover a distance of about 1,000 Kilometres.

The ride to Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso took us through the entire stretch of Ghana. From Kumasi down to Tamale and then Bolgatanga before heading to the border town named Paga and after crossing into Burkina Faso through the Paga border, we then had to ride for about 230 Kilometres before getting to Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso.

Before leaving Ghana for Burkina Faso, we contacted Adama a biker in Burkina Faso and he sent his brother Ibrahim to come assist us at the border and Ibrahim also rode with us into Ouagadougou.

The ride was a beautiful one as I got to ride on multiple terrains and came across beautiful villages with lush vegetations in Ghana. When we crossed into Burkina Faso, I saw so many animals and had an encounter with herds of cattle.

The ride was a great one overall and we didn't have any issues whatsoever along the way.

I hope you guys enjoy the video as much as I enjoyed filming and editing it.

Thank you for watching.

Don't Film In This African Country! ????????

???????? As a vlogger you are always a little nervous about filming in public. Occasionally people ask you politely not to photograph them, occasionally they throw vegetables at you, but nowhere is quite like the capital of Mauritania where filming yourself gets the locals screaming at you! What a bunch of Mauritanian madlads! Fortunately the people got a lot more chill on the road to Nouadhibou.

9 Things NOT To Do in Nigeria

There are many misconceptions about Nigeria, it's not a poor country, it has a rich culture and cuisine, and not every man there is a prince who wants to give you money. Although Lagos, Abuja, and Calabar seem like well-established tourist locations, there are a few things we should avoid doing when we visit.

1. Don't Flash The Cash.
Most places accept credit cards, so the need for cash is low. Avoid carrying cash if possible and if you have to carry cash, avoid showing it. Keep your wallet and phone in your front pockets and don't wear any expensive jewelry or watches.

2. Don't Make Assumptions.
Although most Nigerians speak English and almost half are Christians you shouldn't assume their culture is the same. Over half of Nigerians are Muslim and the Nigerian culture is an amalgamation of multiple ethnic groups.

3. Don't Forget Your Vaccines!
In addition to your routine vaccines, it is recommended that you get vaccinated for Measles, Yellow fever, Polio, Hepatitis A, Malaria, and Typhoid. It is also a good idea to carry proof of your vaccinations with you as you may be asked for this at the airport.

4. Don't Forget Your Visa.
Unless you are a citizen of a neighboring country, you are going to need a visa to enter Nigeria. Start the process at least a month before your trip because it is quite a lengthy process and requires a lot of paperwork. it is also quite expensive, so be prepared!

5. Don't Be Afraid of The Cuisine!
Nigeria offers all types of international cuisines but their own is delicious (it maybe a bit spicy!) try Bolli which is roasted Plantain Jollof rice and Suya which are spicy kebabs.

6. Don't say you Love Africa!
Nigeria is a country, Africa is a continent. Going to Nigeria and telling a Nigerian you love Africa is like going to Cuba and saying you love North America!

7. Don,t Go Out Alone At Night
Taking walks or going out clubbing alone at night is not recommended. Get a guide or befriend a local, also avoid public transport and book cabs in advance from reputable companies!

8. Don't Forget Your passport
Get photocopies of your passport to carry around with you for identification and only show the original at the airport.

9. Pack Carefully!
Make sure you pack some necessities in your hand luggage, hold luggage can be delayed or even disappear so to avoid spending days in the same clothes, put some in your carry-on bag. Pack a torch and a battery pack too, as power outages are a common occurrence.

Which country should we do next?

WE JUST COMPLETED THE MOST INSANE 10 day road trip across West Africa!! Wow, I cannot believe how many stories we have to tell for the rest of our lives.

I've been traveling with my Spanish buddy Alvaro, who is now 1 country away from visiting every country in the world, and we both agree that this has been one of the most difficult trips of our lives both mentally and physically. It's a logistical nightmare to plan, not to mention the constant corruption and bribery at every police checkpoint and border crossing.

But we did it.

And looking back already, it was an incredible trip and one for the memories. Thank you to everyone who followed our journey along the way! Many more stories to come from Senegal and then onwards to the Middle East and Central Africa!

Uganda is known for ;
1. Rolex is a delicacy.
You’ve probably heard of the saying, Ugandans don’t wear a Rolex, they eat it! It is absolutely true, what we do with the Rolex is, roll it up and straight to the mouth. So here’s is the difference between the international Rolex and the Ugandan Rolex. In Uganda, we don't wear Rolex, we eat it.
2. Home to Iddi Amin.
One of Uganda's biggest exports is it's former president Iddi Amin who ruled the country from 1971-1979. He named himself the conqueror of the British Empire and he's also most famous for expelling Asian from the country in order to give back the Ugandan economy to Ugandans.
3. Equator crosses through Uganda.
Earth’s equator is an imaginary line dividing the North and South hemispheres. There are only a few countries that the equator runs through, including Ecuador and the Democratic Republic of Congo. In Uganda, the equator is located 75 km south of Kampala, where you can purchase memorabilia and watch cool equator water experiments.
4. Best African English-speaking Country.
Uganda is known as the number one African country when it comes to the English language. According to a study that was done by the World Linguistic society, it ranked Uganda as the African country with the best accent.
5. Most Entrepreneurial country in the world.
Uganda has the most number of business startups annually though many of these never get to celebrate their one year anniversary.
6. Home to the second-largest Fresh Water lake (Lake Victoria).
Its surface area more than 26,000 square miles, Lake Victoria (named for Queen Victoria) is the biggest lake on the continent of Africa and the globe’s second-largest freshwater lake, trailing North America’s Lake Superior.
7. Uganda has its own time.
You’re probably now wondering which kind of time only belongs to Uganda. I am not talking about the EAT, CAT, or PST time; our time is called “Ugandan time.” International or normal time as many call it is the real-time ( for example if the appointment is at 3 pm, normal time will be at 3 pm).
8. Source of the Nile.
River Nile which is the longest river in the world happens to have its source in Uganda. This river starts from Uganda nad it moves up north to Egypt whee it pours its waters in the Mediterenean sea.
9. Matooke/Banana Republic.
When you travel to Uganda, the most common local food you’ll hear about is Matooke.
10. Safest Country In Africa.
Many tourists that visit this country leave without any problems or incidents.

10 Most Dangerous Countries for Americans or Westerners.

You know some countries are more dangerous than Detroit or a Lingerie party at my cousin's ex-wife's house. Yes, it's hard to believe, I know.
In general, the world can be a dangerous place. You could be in danger no matter where your plane lands. The thing is, some countries excel in danger. And some even bump that up a notch depending on where you hail from. If you think everyone in the world loves America and its people, you’ve lived a sheltered life and I want to congratulate you on escaping from where ever you were and are now able to get on the internet to watch this video.
The fact is, some countries are dangerous for everyone, especially Americans, so much so the Dept. of State updates a report every couple weeks called Travel Advisory. This is a report that ranks the danger level a country might have for Americans that travel there. It has colors like a mood right of danger and goes from level 1 Blue that Exercise normal precautions, up to 4) Red Do not travel.
In today’s video, we're looking at the top 10 Level 4s and find out why.

10) Syria
9) Burkina Faso
8)South Sudan
7)Yemen
6)Venezuela
5)Mali
4)Iraq
3)China
2)Iran
1)Hati
