Hey everyone, this is Scott (or the Scottman). During the day (or should I say the work week), I work in Information Technology (IT). However, at all other times, I invest my time in travel-related interests (and even some video games here and there, too). For a very long time, I have always enjoyed traveling to different places dating back to some of the camping trips I used to go on with my family. When I was in elementary school, I was interested in three things: the weather, video games, and maps (or geography). The world atlas was one of my favorite books when I was growing up. As I have gotten older, I finally have the opportunity to explore new places and head out on great, new adventures! The adventure is only beginning!
In May 2009, I started my YouTube channel, Scottman895 Travel (although I added the word “Travel” to my username in 2015), which contains my different travel videos. Back in 2009, as I already enjoyed checking out different places, I thought to myself, “Why don’t I film my adventures and provide commentary along the way?” After that moment, Scottman895 Travel was born! From 2009 to early 2014, I filmed my different adventures throughout my home state of Michigan as well as my frequent trips to Colorado and PAX East, a popular video game convention held annually in Boston, MA. However, they were not filmed as frequent as I do videos now. In the middle of 2014, I really got hyped about travel, and I check out different places very frequently whether they are in Michigan, in the rest of the United States, in Canada, or in the world. I made my first overseas journey back in 2015 to both Germany and the United Kingdom. Since then, I have been to 12 countries so far with most of them being over in Europe. As I speak, I am already planning which country to visit next. As you can tell, I am always on the go, and I do not like to be in one spot for long!
On my YouTube Channel, you will see the following type of content:
Since I first started my YouTube channel, I have visited many cities, towns, parks, and countries. Through my travel videos, I share my experiences with the world as well as travel tips. I also film travel guides to help travelers and tourists discover fun things to do and see in many cities, towns, and parks. I enjoy checking out popular places as well as discovering different hidden gems or places which many people have not even heard about.
Driving with Scottman895
This series features another aspect of travel: road travel. With my GoPro Hero 5 Black mounted to the dashboard, I show off some cool journeys on many different highways whether it is a country drive or a major freeway in a city. I also enjoy filming a driving tour around a particular community. I have even taken this series overseas as I have filmed driving videos on highways in Canada, Croatia, and Montenegro as well as the autobahn in Germany.
Scottman895 Travel Delights
Another great aspect of travel is the food. In this series, I check out a local restaurant, and I eat some delicious food in the process. It is a way to help promote local restaurants (many using local ingredients) to give them more publicity in a world with many franchised restaurants. I also review the experience from the food to the service. This was an idea I had back in the spring of 2015, and I am glad I have started these series of videos! I am getting kind of hungry now!
In my blog posts on this website, I will be sharing both my current and my past travels here as well as detailed experiences of the different restaurants I visit through my Travel Delights. Every adventure has a story to tell, and my adventures are no different! Who knows, you may want to go out and travel the world, too! Thanks for visiting this website!
