Twenty-Somethings ‘Vlogging’ Their Way Through Europe

BARCELONA (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Some people work their way across Europe for the summer but five young filmmakers are “vlogging” their way around the continent.

It’s part of 5 Takes Europe, a new Travel Channel series that features a team of filmmakers who visit a European city each week and write a blog about their experience and a video log – or “vlog” – of their impressions.

One of the vloggers is 23-year-old Brad Hasse from Phoenix, Arizona. He is currently in Barcelona, Spain and admits the requirement for regular TV reports has made him consider doing wild things like the “Running Of The Bulls” in order to fill his story quota.

In addition, he’s been keeping busy by doing advance scouting on his next assignment: a piece on the break dancers in Paris.

5 Takes Europe debuts tomorrow (Jul. 23) with vlogs on Barcelona and will be followed by reports from Paris, Amsterdam, Prague, Venice and Athens.

If the series is successful, producers hope to try versions set in South America, Africa and Asia.
