Top New Travel Videos: “Amazing Amorgos” In Greece” By Joerg Daiber

Filmed, Edited and Directed by: Joerg Daiber

I will never understand why so many people go to such an obvious Insta-tourist-trap like Santorini when there are so many amazing alternatives in Greece. Take Amorgos for instance. It’s the easternmost island in Greece’s Cyclades island group. With a land area of just 121 square kilometers, the island has a population of nearly 2000 people. It’s incredibly beautiful and no mass tourism is spoiling the fun so far.

Destinations: “Salesforce Park” In San Francisco Is “Floating Utopia”

Salesforce Park Transit CenterThe Salesforce Transit Center is a green infrastructure that enhances public transportation, reduces traffic congestion, and serves as an economic catalyst. As San Francisco’s new downtown gateway, it greets tens of thousands of residents, commuters, and visitors daily, providing a dynamic destination while engaging, enriching, and connecting people coming and going throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.

Come, my friends,
‘Tis not too late to seek a newer world.
To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars, until I die.
–from “Ulysses” by Alfred Lord Tennyson

2020 SHOW: October 17-18, 2020

Central Coast Airfest Short Film

Flying is about freedom. Freedom to move, to travel, to savor all three dimensions we’re capable of experiencing. The wheels leave the ground and everything just melts away. Airshows give us an opportunity to look skyward at the people who fly and say… “I want to do that.”

This film celebrates the performers of the Central Coast Airfest. These are aviators who have pushed their love for flying to the edge. Stunt pilots who roll and tumble mere feet from the ground. A fighter pilot who blasts through walls of fire with 30,000 lbs of thrust at his back. A rodeo clown who lands airplanes on top of ambulances.

For thousands of years, flying was an impossible dream. Now, flying is more accessible than ever before, but it’s no less a dream. Look up, and dream.
