I travel around the globe with my job and every once in a while I have some free time to see the sights. I'm one of those “say you've been there” kinds of guys, so going to see famous landmarks, tour historical sites, see movie film locations, or even eat at popular restaurants is always on the top of my list.


A few years ago I had this idea to film short videos of these places to document and remember them. There are some places I've been that I forgot to turn the video camera on, like the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam or the Fremont Troll in Seattle. Here are just a few I've captured... I put stars next to my favorites.
