Day Trip: Disneyland Resort Paris

C’est moi! Matt Stone. It’s been almost 7 months since I uploaded my last vlog to YouTube but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been working hard to create more videos in that time. This video was filmed in March when we decided to do a day trip to Disneyland Paris and combined with staying two nights at one of our favourite hotel chains (see my other video here for a room review: http://matt-stone.co.uk/citizenm-hotel-room-review-london-paris-eurostar-trip/). We spent 12 hours at Disneyland Resort Paris catching the TGV from our hotel at Charles de Gaulle airport which is only 10 minutes from Disneyland Paris.

We visited Walt Disney Studios for an hour in the morning but I didn’t really film much in that park, then we moved on to Disneyland Park and did a full tour along with some of our favourite rides. Apologies if the ride footage is a but shaky, it’s the first time I’ve used my Canon G1x on a ride!

We were even lucky enough to ride Star Tours: The Adventure Continues before it had even opened! They had a soft opening for a few hours with Disney management greeting guests as they entered the ride, thanks to Brian Saxon (Twitter: @BrianKSaxon) for tweeting us to let us know it had opened as we had already been to that part of the park and would have otherwise missed out.

Flying the DJI Mavic Pro in Iceland

It’s me! Matt Stone. Welcome to Mavic Matt, my second YouTube channel. Here I’ll showcase the footage captured using my DJI Mavic Pro quadcopter.

We recently went on a trip to Iceland which was my first opportunity to use the Mavic abroad to capture some stunning natural scenery and get used to how the Mavic operated in low temperatures.

CitizenM Hotel Room Review on our London to Paris Eurostar Trip

It’s me! Matt Stone. We visited Paris for the weekend and stayed in our favourite hotel chain CitizenM. If you’ve watched the previous vlogs from our trip to New York City you’ll know how much we enjoyed our stay at the CitizenM.

We started our weekend at the CitizenM in Shoreditch London which because we booked direct through the hotel’s website we got 2 free drinks vouchers which we used to get the slightly pricey cocktails! The next morning we headed out on the Eurostar to Paris Gare du Nord and then caught the RER train to Charles de Gaulle Airport which is where one of the CitizenM hotels is.

The room scenes in this video were filmed at both hotels, I combined them as they are pretty much identical in almost all their hotels.

Day Trip: Chasing Waterfalls with the DJI Mavic Pro

Join us as we go for a hike in the Welsh Valley’s and capture some stunning footage with my DJI Mavic Pro quadcopter.

We randomly decided to go for a walk in a Welsh National Park and ended up visiting one of the first places we ever went together as a couple.

Follow us as we make our way down into a small gorge that leads to one of the most stunning waterfalls in South Wales, the Nant Melyn waterfall. We then make our way up a crazy steep hill before heading off for a nice pub lunch.
