Leisurely Drives #2

Hello friends! Rememberย Leisurely Drives, well you guys really liked it, which is great! Cause I loved making it ๐Ÿ˜€

Ready for some more pictures I took from the car while we were driving around on a sunny day? Yes?

Well then, let’s go!

You made it to the end! I did take more pictures than this, but there was a lot of blurry ones. Maybe I should start editing my photos too, cause I never do. Except for on Instagram, but that’s cause they’re already on the app, I don’t have to open another program.

Anyway, you may have noticed a YouTube link underneath this paragraph. I have said that I’m interested in trying to do videos as well as blogs…Well this is my first real effort. I started videoing on another drive instead of just taking pictures. I downloaded a free video editing program, looked around online for songs that I could freely download and use without royalty costs. Then I spent way longer than I thought I would cutting together footage and trying to match it to the music. I also kept in random bits of audio which I thought were funny. But anyway, feel free to have a watch and let me know what you think ๐Ÿ™‚ All constructive criticism welcome.

The music is Good Times by Podington Bear. I found itย here.ย Also, this video is less than 2 minutes, but took me around 2 hours to make. Yikes, I feel for all those YouTubers.

Anyway, I am keeping in the back of my mind, other ideas that might work for videos. It may be a while before I do a talking one, cause it still feels awkward. That’s still a future goal though, cause this was fun ๐Ÿ™‚


  1. I love the roads that drive along the water, so gorgeous! Are those your every day drives around your town? There’s something so soothing about long or short drives. I personally love being a passenger of a car ๐Ÿ™‚ Also great job with the video and editing!!!!

    xo, JJ

    1. The road along the water is the highway to get to the outer suburbs of Wellington. That’s where our families live, so we often drive around there ๐Ÿ™‚
      And I agree, drives are so soothing ๐Ÿ˜€
      Thank you so much Jenny! <3

  2. I loved the video! It was so fun to watch! And the photos look lovely. You’re so lucky to live in such a beautiful place! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks Pamela! That means a lot ๐Ÿ˜„

  3. I’ve been meaning to put together a video compilation of my Thailand trip and still haven’t 2 months later. So I’m admiring you right now. Ya’ll have such little cars.
