A big shout out to Travelistic.com for featuring me (and Brave New Traveler) in their User Spotlight yesterday as well as their new travel show “The Map.”

For those not in the know, Travelistic.com is a recently launched video sharing website dedicated sharing travel clips, films and videos. They’ve been getting some great publicity over the past few weeks, and it’s not hard to see why.

I like the site for a number of reasons:

  • the video compression is better than most video sharing sites (like YouTube)
  • the site is clean, user-friendly, and quick loading
  • it’s run by some pretty cool people

They also started producing “The Map” — a Rocketboom inspired travel vodcast that collects various uploaded content and strings them together in an entertaining show. In this edition, they’ve chosen to feature a clip I shot back in Bangkok with a few friends as we chew on some street-roasted grasshoppers.

The funny part is that we had to shoot the scene twice. My fiance forgot to click the ‘record’ button in the first take, which I figured was the last. (It’s possible the 1 litre Beer Changs had something to do with her mistake).

You may think you’d get used to roasted grasshopper after the first one. But sadly, that’s not the case.
