Switzerland and Prague on TK J and UA 747 J Upper Deck Video TR

I just got back from an awesome trip to Switzerland and Prague with my girlfriend. We flew SFO-IST-ZRH on TK for 55k Aeroplan miles (Membership Rewards). We explored Switzerland before heading to Prague on the brand new CS100 in its second day of service for Swiss and then heading home PRG-FRA-SFO on UA's 747 in the upper deck (57.5k miles).

I would explain more but the video really shows all you need to know: (give it about 20 seconds to get into the flight sequence)

Very entertaining.

The only thing I wish i knew where the slide was in Switzerland and the nice walkway in the mountains?

Thanks.

It's at the very bottom of the description on youtube, but the slide is above Kandersteg in Oeschinensee, Switzerland, they call it the Rodelbahn. The hike is at the Aare Gorge in Meiringen! They are about an hours drive from one another.

Finally a video trip report that didn't make my end after like 30 seconds. If I had one suggestion is that I would like to have seen some sections slowed down a bit more just to give a break in the speed of the report. That is minor though and this is one of the few trip video trip reports that I actually enjoyed.

Thanks! Switzerland was fantastic, as was Prague. I highly recommend both places. Glad you liked the music!

I appreciate the critique and actually agree with you whole heartedly. It's a bit "cutty." It became one of those projects I was eager to finish and had to accept that there were things to improve on for next time!

That was spectacular. Doesn't hurt that you're both ridiculously photogenic too.

Are you a career filmmaker, or is this merely a hobby?

Yes, shot 100% on GoPro cameras. The Hero4 Black and Silver Edition.
