After the recent passing of travel legend Anthony Bourdain, I take a look back at a trip from 5 years ago that he largely inspired me to embark on. All we can do now that he is gone is to keep traveling and telling our own stories.

R.I.P. Anthony Bourdain.

  1. I was a bit more jealous than inspired by Anthony ha but am glad you finished this. Good storytelling and classic footage that reminds me of my own travels.

  2. Thanks for the awesome video! I've been living in southern Taiwan for years…. Taiwan needs more cool exposure. Keep up the travels and Thanks again!

  3. Jeremy, what a beautiful video. I lived in Taiwan for a few years, and you've shown such a gorgeous side of it here. Really is an amazing country. Anthony Bourdain also inspired me to see the world, and that Taipei episode was the reason why I went there in the first place. Thank you for sharing. I couldn't encourage you more to think about making more videos. I have to go cry some more now.
