Videos

On the trip I carried with me a VIO POV1 helmet camera, something I used mostly in Thailand and India, before losing the lens on the run down the Himalayas and it not being much use after that. The laptop I carried with me also had webcam which I used to film the occasional video diary. Below is a list of videos, listed chapter by chapter, with an asterisk to identify my favourites. Please be advised, some of these videos do feature strong language and are a bit stupid in places. They were just of a particular time and place.
