Brent Foster ( @brentfoster) takes us through the "ultimate assault on the senses" in his travel video from Rajasthan, India — live on our site. He offers first-time videographers this tip: "Get out of their comfort zone and get as close to people as they can when filming. It’s easy to sit back with a zoom lens and capture life from afar. Try to immerse yourself in the process, and you may be surprised by the results."

"I came to Argentina to meet a friend and start our year of traveling. We got to know one another while climbing mount Fuji in Japan the year before and I knew that when the time came, he’d make a great traveling companion. Right now we’re in Arizona seeing national parks together, and we’re going to keep traveling together as long as we can." @mimi11111 Iguazu Falls, Argentina #passionpassport
