Introducing The Motorhome Diaries Video Series

By - December 2, 2014 (Updated: November 30, 2015)

Introducing the Motorhome DiariesToday we introduce a new feature about our upcoming travel around Europe in an RV. We answer your questions about our plans in The Motorhome Diaries Video series.

When we first announced our decision to travel around Europe in a motorhome for a year, we were nervous. We didn’t want our readers, who had been following us for our Belgian content for so long, to feel we are abandoning them. (We will definitely be writing about Belgium for a long time to come, in case you are worried.)

Instead, we were overwhelmed by wishes of support and encouragement for our big adventure. Frankly, we should have known, because we have the best audience in the world. But we have been getting a lot of curious questions about our travel plans, the motorhome we intend to buy, how we’re preparing for the trip, and what we’ve told our cats.

So, to answer your questions, and document some of our own feelings and fears, we’ve decided to start a video journal series called The Motorhome Diaries.

We’re sharing the first one with you today so you can see what it’s all about. In the future, these videos won’t be replacing the regular bi-weekly posts on CheeseWeb, but you will be able to find them on their own Motorhome Diaries Page and on our Youtube Channel. (You have subscribed to our Youtube Channel right?)

Please also know that we are not video experts… If we ever put together an out-take reel, it will be epic. However, we felt video would really document what we’re feeling during this big life transition in a more raw and real way.

We hope you enjoy the series and we’d love your feedback, either here in the comments or on the video itself.

      Thanks Amy! After 20+ takes we’re getting better. I think we need to drink more before we film next time 😉
