FAQ

What is the topic of your question?

Itchy Boots in General

Why do you call yourself 'Itchy Boots'?

Why do you call yourself 'Itchy Boots'?

There is an English expression ‘to have itchy feet’ which means:

To have itchy feet is to have a marked desire to travel or move from one place to another; to have the desire to leave a place. Also, to be eager to make a change or start something new.

I can’t think of anything more appropriate to describe my wanderlust, and that’s how ‘Itchy Boots’ was born!

How do you fund your travels?

How do you fund your travels?

I sold my house and my possessions so I could go and travel. I wanted to keep myself on the road for as long as possible so I started filming my travels. Now I earn money with my YouTube channel and selling merchandise. I also offer followers to become a member of the Itchy Boots Community in exchange for some interesting benefits. You can read about the memberships here. I am also an ambassador for Rev'it! and some brands have donated me gear or equipment over the years.

What happened to Basanti?

What happened to Basanti?

I bought Basanti in India, but because I came to India as a tourist, I couldn’t register Basanti in my name. So an Indian friend offered to register Basanti in his name. Thanks to him I was able to cross 25 countries with Basanti, but unfortunately it was not possible to register her in my name or in The Netherlands. I explain the full story in this video. In the end, I exchanged Basanti for Dhanno.

What happened to Dhanno?

What happened to Dhanno?

When the pandemic started, I had to leave Dhanno behind in Peru, while I was repatriated to my home country The Netherlands. In the end, I was able to ship her to The Netherlands but received Dhanno in terrible shape. She won't be clocking any kilometers anymore.

What equipment do you use for editing your videos?

What equipment do you use for editing your videos?

When I am on the road, I have a MacBookPro with me.

All my videos of Season 1 have been edited with Filmora. This is an easy and cheap computer program for video editing. But Filmora had issues with my 4K footage, making the editing process very time consuming. To be able to work faster, I’m now working with Final Cut Pro. A more professional, expensive and difficult program, but I can produce videos a lot quicker and better!

For the storage of the material I use SSD-drives, they are more expensive but small and reliable.

What equipment do I need to complete the challenges of Motorcycle Vlogging 101? 

What equipment do I need to complete the challenges of Motorcycle Vlogging 101? 

For the challenges, you only need a smartphone or GoPro, a selfiestick, and/or mount on your bike or helmet for the camera. Trust me, you don't need the most professional equipment when you start vlogging. To edit your first motorcycle vlog, you will need a basic editing program. In my course, I share the setup for Imovie and Filmora. Both editing programs are for free. I am looking forward to your first results!

Itchy Boots 360 Experience

What is an 360 Experience?

What is an 360 Experience?

The 360 Experience is a video that has been recorded with a 360 degrees camera. That way you can experience a certain experience from different angles. It is like you are really there with me riding through Johannesburg for instance.

These types of videos are similar to what people use for Virtual Reality Experiences. You can also watch the 360 Experience on a VR device. 

You will find a 360 Experience for free here to try and test. You can access it once you have logged in as a Free Member of the Itchy Boots Community. When you are an Experience or Loyalty Member, you can watch all the experiences that are available on this page.

Can I watch the experience on my smartphone?

In order to view the 360 Experience on your phone, you need to install the app 'Vimeo'. Once you click on the play button of the 360 Experience, the Vimeo app will automatically open and play the Experience.

If you have an Android phone, you can move your phone in order to see the video from a different angle. On an iPhone you need to use your fingers on the screen to switch perspective.
