YouTube - your window to the World!

Updated: Feb 17

By Sara Allen.


YouTube is the undisputed media darling of the digital age! A quick Google search will show you that over 2 Billion* of us watch YouTube each month- an average of 30 million viewers online each day!


Surfing the 'Tuber-verse' is brilliant way to learn something new, do some research for the next travel destination (for when we can pack our bags again!) or just chill, relax and have a laugh!



Did You Know?


YouTube is the second most visited site on the Internet*, with (of course) Google taking out the number one position.

The first video ever posted was by the San Diego Zoo 14 years ago and the video that broke the viewing counter was Gangnam Style by Psy, a South Korean pop star*. The video was poised to exceed 2,147,483,647 plays, at which point YouTube would have been unable to count any higher~ it was changed after this!


Earlier this year, Korean pop group BTS released their single ON and became the biggest YouTube Premiere of all time, with 1.54 million concurrent viewers*. Then more recently Baby Shark, a children's song recorded by South Korean company Pinkfong, has now become the most-watched video ever on YouTube; played over 7.04 billion times!*


Here are some great YouTube Channels and videos, from seriously crazy and hair-raising road trips, amazing food and travel destinations, incredible drone footage that is a must watch; through to funny videos including those cute cat and dog ones that seem to enchant us all!
