September News: 748,000 video views

I am so grateful to everyone who has supported me on my journey with We Said Go Travel. Thank you!

My journey with video began in Taiwan in 2011 with a Cisco Flip Camera. One of my 5th grade students taught me to use iMovie at recess. I am now 2,000 views from 3/4 of a million video views and have over 600 videos on multiple platforms.

Where can you find me? Here are links to my video channels on YouTube, Amazon Fire Tv, Amazon Short Video and Roku Player. I hope you enjoy my “This is What it is Like” Episodes! Feel free to comment, subscribe, like and get to 2,000 more views so I will be at 3/4 of a million!

Where did I go in September? I spent an evening strolling through the Los Angeles Zoo with Safari Society and on my very first Carnival Cruise. Please click here to see the first five videos from my adventures in Galveston and the beginning of my sailing. I cannot wait to share the underwater video with my new DBPower Waterproof Action camera.

As my fortune cookie said: If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.” In the coming month, it will be Rosh HaShannah and Yom Kippur, the Days of Atonement and my birthday. I will have a new project to share and I look forward to telling you all about my next series of adventures. Until then, K’tiva VaHatima Tova which translates to “good writing and sealing.” I hope you will be written and sealed for another year in the Book of Life and that you will have productive, passionate, joy-filled adventures.
