WATERFALL DRONE DISASTER - Bogor, Indonesia Vlog thumb WATERFALL DRONE DISASTER - Bogor, Indonesia Vlog thumb WATERFALL DRONE DISASTER - Bogor, Indonesia Vlog thumb


  • It's the blood!
  • Good morning!
  • and welcome back to Jakarta!
  • I just had that funky looking speciality kopi luwak coffee. Which was really nice.
  • and brewed in a pretty interesting way. I've never seen that, before.
  • I had it at Holiday Inn Express in Thamrin.
  • I'm staying here, right now, in the centre of Jakarta.
  • But, right now, I need to leave here, go and meet my friends, because we have a big day planned!
  • I'll tell you more in a minute!
  • Just met up with the gang!
  • They're all here and we're about to jump on the train to Bogor. We're gonna go explore some waterfalls there.
  • Fortunately, I got us to meet at Gambia Because that's the main train station from here and I thought you could go to Bogor, from there.
  • ...BUT, you can't so, we've got to walk to the next local station.
  • YouTube Gold!
  • Hey Buddy! How you doing?
  • Oh my god, it's so fluffy, I could die!
  • Hey bud! I just wanna squish it!
  • You're so small!
  • Oh my goodness!
  • We have just arrived in Bogor. It's about a 45min-1hr train journey outside of Jakarta.
  • ...and it's somewhere you might not think of going, when you come to Jakarta.
  • BUT! I'm gonna show you why it's completely worth visiting!
  • But first, I need to meet someone who some of you might recognize.
  • Hello!
  • We meet again, okay!
  • I did the video before with the beautiful scenery of Indonesia in the jungle
  • and we're gonna do another collaboration, today! Which is cool!
  • Let's go, team!
  • Cool!
  • Well, we made it
  • What's the name of this park, Agus? Ah, Gulung Shalat.
  • Gulung Shalat! Gulung Shalat!
  • Just about made it.
  • So, we just arrived at the park. I'm gonna grab a quick bit of food but first, check out this view!
  • Yeah!
  • Not bad for a little Indo-noodle place! I don't know what they're called
  • I'm also here with...Fandy Fandy!
  • Say, "hello" Hello!
  • Yeah, he just drove us, here. Good man. Thank you! Thank you!
  • What would you say about our relatively short journey, from Jakarta?
  • I mean, 4hrs is pretty short, in these parts.
  • Well, I think...
  • I was asleep for most of it.
  • We left...we got on the train at 9:30 and it's like, 2, now?
  • It is 2 o'clock!
  • You should do a timelapse on it!
  • Now this, is a ginger-man. But this, is a pretty big waterfall!
  • The plan was to go swimming in it and like, it's meant to be really green but, because it's raining, it's been raining
  • It's got really heavy flow, right now. So, I don't know if we're going swimming or not
  • That is a surprisingly strong current!
  • But, I wanted to go over to this side, for a better view.
  • As stable as I thought.
  • Agus, do you ever come somewhere and wish you had a drone?
  • I'm not sure but the waterfall is very dirty but yeah! We can do it!
  • Let's do it!
  • We just tried to fly the drone, in here.
  • But, I think there's just way too much turbulence in this little bit.
  • And unfortunately...Agus, man, let's see.
  • Agus was trying to catch the drone and stop it from flying away
  • And the rotors just cut into his arm.
  • Looks pretty bad!
  • Right, unfortunately, we couldn't get the drone out here. It's just not happening.
  • So, we're gonna try and move on and find somewhere else.
  • That's where we were, Curug Goa Lumut Indah
  • It looks like we found a spot to fly the dr-
  • That was just one of the many waterfalls, here, in this national park.
  • And now, we're gonna quick walk through this forrest, here, as well.
  • We decided to come out today because living in Jakarta or being in Jakarta, you wouldn't expect this kind of scenery to be so close.
  • This is, on a good day, this is an hour train and about a half an hour journey outside of Jakarta.
  • and then, you're in this kind of national park.
  • He have just about wrapped up, here. Just took some photos to share on our Instagrams.
  • @ghoster21 @traveltram_uk Check 'em out. They'll be in the description, below!
  • But right now, we're heading to Bogor!
  • On the train, back to Jakarta, now.
  • and I just said goodbye to Agus. All I need to do now is get back to the hotel.
  • Back in the hotel, now. Back in the Holiday Inn Express in Thamrin and
  • Thank you for the stay, by the way. Like, the loaction is fantastic. I've stayed here, before and it was a really nice hotel.
  • Really great breakfast and good coffee, this morning, as well.
  • and it's been a massive help because I have my sister and two friends staying at my flat.
  • So to have this place in a really good location in Jakarta...really helpful!
  • Today, uhm, went out with a simple idea to go into nature, really close to Jakarta.
  • and just film a waterfall and be in some beautiful nature near to jakarta
  • A lot of the stuff went wrong.
  • It should take an hour and a half, maybe, to get there and it took us much longer. about 4/5 hours
  • Because of various things, uhm
  • We struggled to meet up, this morning. We missed the first train.
  • The next train was later.
  • There was traffic.
  • And all those things combined to make it quite a difficult day. Then, it started raining, once we got there.
  • And then, we had to wait out the rain. But, eventually, I still produced this video. So, hopefully...
  • ...it's still good
  • With that, I'm just gonna finish it and say, again.
  • Thank you for watching and This Is My Life!

Travel has changed my life and I have no plans on stopping any time soon.

That's why I am now running this video blog showing you how I travel the world continuously

No glitz. No glamour. Just a man and his backpack.



How did you learn to edit?
I taught myself. I downloaded Premiere Pro and began to figure out how to use it through trial and error. My videos were pretty bad at first but eventually, and with the help of many tutorials, you start to figure out what works.

What work are you doing?
I started off running this video blog while doing freelance web design and video editing to supplement my travelling lifestyle. I now rely solely on this blog to generate revenue through advertising, affiliate links, Patreon and sponsorship opportunities.

How do you meet the people in your videos?
Hostels, guesthouses and conversations! You meet people so easily while travelling. Just open yourself up and you will meet all sorts of amazing people.
Where do you live?
I now live in Indonesia while travelling to lots of destinations. I have a flat in Jakarta and I regularly return there.
