Here in the UK where I live during the 90s there was a cable channel called the Travel Channel and they used to show a TV series by this guy called Burt Wolf who was this friendly bearded American guy who made really nice travel videos. I used to love watching them when a teenager.
Anyway I don't know if the Travel channel is even still around but recently I came across this guy Dennis Callan who has videos with some on Youtube and stuff. He has very much a similar kinda vibe although he travels with a group. I'm sure it's not most people's thing but I love his video on the Swiss Alps.
That's the link for the first part. If you like it all 11 parts I think are there too.
Anyway if anyone has travel videos or stuff like that they like in a similar style feel free to post.
