– Quick boil some rocks.
(laughs) What is this? Hey yo, what's goin' on everybody? My name is Mike Corey of Fearless and Far.
I'm an adventure traveler, YouTuber and television host who has been travelingthis big beautiful world for almost a decade now.
And I've had this YouTubechannel for most of it.
And about 2 1/2 years ago, I became a travel presenter on BBC News.
So it's safe to say I have experienced the world of travel.
So when a friend sent me this video of “Travel hacks that will divide your life into before and after”, oh my god, it's got 23 million views.
I thought I might take a look.
We're filming this video in April 2020, so no one's traveling anywhere right now.
So hey, maybe we can learn some things for our trips comingup, who knows, in 2021? All right.
Let me get some headphonesand we'll dive in.
This looks ridiculous.
(peppy whistling music) Okay, here we go.
So it's a vertical video on YouTube.
We've got toothpaste, being put on wax paper.
This looks like a dessert.
Let it dry.
Oh, when you dry the toothpaste out and then you put .
So on the go, actually you can get artisan versions of this ata lot of wellness stores, like a Lush I believe.
Though I've never reallyunderstood the exact reason why that saves any time.
I mean, if you didn't have water, sometimes it's hard to find running water.
But generally not something you have to worry about too much.
This (snaps) happy clap whistle it makes me want to (gun shot).
(mellow techno music) These are like, adventures.
Where it starts and I haveno idea where it's gonna go.
Okay, so we want to applya black charcoal face mask.
Shove it inside some deodorant and there you go, boys and girls.
Especially all you boys out there who I know this is very important.
There you go.
And now you're black face.
All right, so you've got a black backpack and someone stole your wallet! Take a bar of soap.
(laughs) Oh man, is that $100? Yeah, sure.
Just make sure you don't take that into the hostel bathroom.
(laughs) There's easier ways to hide money than drilling.
Oh now we've got now we've got a hairbrush.
There's things, these really cool things.
I don't know if you've heard of them that you can wear around your waist, that you put your money in and it hides it right there.
Where you don't have to drill holes in everything you holddear to jam money in.
(laughs) Oh there we go, lipstick too? Fold it up so when youhand that over to someone to buy a Pepsi it's justsmeared with red stuff.
They'd love that, I guarantee it.
Juicy Fruit, shove somemoney in there too? You're gonna do it.
Hundred bills? Yes, there you go.
Where's this person getall these hundreds from? And where's the one that'snow dyed completely red? There ya go.
(laughs) Hundred dollar show in the shoe.
(bangs table) And then the toothpaste.
This video is like how to smuggle $10, 000 U.
dollars in one hundred dollar U.
bills across the border.
(laughs) Your shoe gets wet in the river.
Quick boil some rocks.
(laughs) What is this? What are you .
? Put the rocks in the shoes? Why? Oh.
To be fair though Ihave burnt so many shoes taking soggy hiking boots, putting them on sticks, and putting them next to a fire, and it getting too hot and melting the plastic on the outside.
I never tried putting boiling rocks.
Why are we watching a diaper? Why is there chocolate in the diaper? (laughs) What is this? I have to go back, I was too busy talking.
Why are we putting, whatwas the poopy diaper for? Hold on, rewind.
I missed it.
Oh it's the phone and the keys.
(laughs) Oh you put it in and then you put .
'cause then nobody will take it.
Which is a legit problem.
You go to the beach.
You have your phone, your wallet, your keys, your credit card and you don't know what to do with it because you wanna go swimming you don't want to leave it on the beach.
What I normally do is I have a towel, I dig a hole under the towel.
Put all that stuff in a plastic bag, put that stuff in the hole, bury the hole, put the towel on top.
And then you can go swimming without covering your stuff in melted chocolate and making it look like baby poo and putting it next to a diaper.
What if someone takes out the trash? It's gone forever because you and your silly poop ideas.
Let me compose myself.
We're making some kindof clothing sandwich.
I don't do this.
I know people who do.
I think it's legit to be able to, yeah, it saves some space.
And it keeps thingsrelatively wrinkle free.
This is something you can do.
So, we're gonna fill it with money again? No, we're putting a gluegun and we're cutting.
? This person loves plastic straws.
But like, why wouldn't you just bring the spools of thread anyway? I mean, these are interesting ideas.
Just not really practical.
Okay so we have a plastic bottle.
We have a second plastic bottle.
They go together.
To make a blower for fire? Ooh! Nailed it.
That's an interesting idea.
I mean you could just blow (blows) with your mouth.
(blows) Works really well too.
No soap in the restroom? Take a balloon.
(laughs) Oh these are adventures.
Everyone is an adventure.
Okay, take a balloon, then you attach the balloon to a .
Now you cut off the toothpaste.
Then you have made your own disposable soap travel kit.
That is kinda cool.
I wouldn't trust it to stay together.
Great, she is obviously a pill head.
Oh my god.
All right, you magicallyput them inside the bag.
That was a good littlemagic trick, catch that? So you light a knife, and you cut it.
See, that's kinda coolbut I really don't think that's gonna withstandany kind of actual travel.
Yeah, all right, it works.
It melts the plastic and you have little sectioned baggie.
But there's way easier ways to do that, like buying Ziploc bags, which actually won't break.
So you're filling .
(laughs) hey, if they're going to a bar-be-cue you could do the same thing with mustard, relish and ketchup too.
Because hey if you're traveling, it's hard to kind good ketchup sometimes.
Just get a plastic glove and fill it.
(laughs) Oh my god.
These are listen, I have to say, are very resourceful, which is an importantpart of being a traveler.
And also very creative.
(laughs) Make sure you get your meat tenderizer that you always travel with to mash up your make up.
(laughs) Wax paper.
all right, where's the adventure going? Pour your makeup into a .
And you paint it on.
You let it dry.
And then you can .
I obviously don't wear enough makeup.
Does that work, girls? And do you like blush it? Okay.
I mean normally you have the .
A compact blush paper.
I just think there's easierway to do all of these things than what they're showing right now.
See, these are interesting but do you have to go outand buy special equipment anyway to do these hacks, you might as well just go buy things that do this exact job.
Like little tiny vials to keep creams in.
And like the actual items thatare built for the purposes of these things can'tbe much more expensive than all the odds and ends.
Wax paper and mallets and everything else that you need.
I don't even know what we're going .
See, that's a reallybig problem that happens when you put all your creams in straws and try to seal it with a hot knife.
That's exactly what's gonna happen.
Blisters on your feet? Duct tape.
This is a really good one actually.
And I've done it before myself.
By putting duct tape, it puts an extra layer and your blisters won't bug you as much.
Also, it's a good preventativefor blisters, too.
Thumbs up for this.
It actually works in a pinch.
All right, more plastic bottles.
Where are we going in this adventure? Tin foil.
Is that a glass bottle now? Okay.
D-I-Y thermos? Yeah, maybe.
Well I guess the principle is, right? The insulating layer on the outside.
I mean, yeah I guess that would work.
Your friends would probablythink you're homeless.
Ahh this one's really good, too.
Sewing an extra secretpocket into your jeans.
This is something thatI've seen quite often.
Personally, never done it.
But it's a great way because the money beltsare kinda annoying, right? I actually don't wear them that often.
But being able to havethat extra pocket in there, fantastic idea.
Good at sewing, too.
Sewing is a good thing to know.
There you go.
So you can sneak another couplehundred dollars on your body while crossing the border.
Shhh! All right, she's on the phone.
I have to leave right now.
Oh my god! That's convenient.
We got eggs.
Oh, I'm excited for this one.
Do you travel all thetime but love omelets? (laughs) This is the hack for you.
Great! Eggs and see, they're already pre-scrambled you just put them in there, cook them.
And you shake them up.
This is the last one tokeep that toilet paper from getting soggy and dirty.
That, that's legit.
And always guys, always, that's the last one it seems.
Oh you can tie it to a tree.
I didn't think we were going there.
Always travel with toilet paper or wet wipes because manyplaces in this world, you end up in the bathroomstall and there's nothin'.
Especially places where peopleuse this as toilet paper.
And you don't wanna be the person who has to find out and learn in the last minute crisis scenario.
I guess that's our P-S-Ato end the video today.
Well that was a blast.
There was a few in therethat actually are legit, great travel tips.
And a lot of awesome ideas that if you're living in a trash heap and you wanna have theluxuries of a modern life, now you know what to do.
But for the most part I think some of the products you'dhave to put together, you could just buy somethingmeant for that purpose on Amazon or at a convenience store for almost the same price.
That gave me a nice, jollySanty Claus belly laugh.
Something that I need rightnow since we can't travel.
Thank you so much forstopping by and watching the video here on Fearless and Far.
