TRIPPED Travel Show

We make silly videos for YouTube. Sometimes people watch them.

We wanted to record the good, the bad, and the funny of travel. What do we discover? The sacred temple is actually next to a busy highway; the camel tour is only 0:48 seconds long and the Opera House has two sides. This is the reality of travel.
