Welcome to this month’s FREETOGO blog post.

It is done for now. I have devised a solution to YouTube's website's new ad policy. If YouTube continues to change its ad policy, I will make additional adjustments as necessary.


I have created an additional Travel Now page that links to only videos without ads. I left the original Travel Now page intact. So, there are now two Travel Now page choices on the FREETOGO home page; one has fewer videos but no ads, and the other has more videos but some ads.


Let’s move on to this month's recommended videos. The videos are grouped under the Locations section on the first Travel Now page. The three locations mentioned are lesser-known, yet impressive nonetheless.


1)     First, look at the Locations – S. America category.

The video to focus on here? Bolivia

If you have never been there, you’ll be impressed by what you see!

Bolivia – Welcome to the “Rooftop of the World,” where you can experience breathtaking landscapes, ancient civilizations, and colorful wildlife. Check out the best things to see and do in Bolivia. A look into Bolivia, a landlocked South American country, holds the promise of discovery for adventurous souls. While pretty Sucre is Bolivia’s judicial capital, La Paz is its political capital and main tourist hub. Go with us as we journey high up to the Mirador Laikacota for city views. Deep in the valley below, see the central Plaza Murillo, home to the most precious buildings: the Presidential Palace, National Congress, and Metropolitan Cathedral. Visitors love to stay near the Plaza San Francisco because of its proximity to hidden gems, such as the curious Witches’ Market, the Musical Instrument Museum, and the Coca Museum. Bolivia is a diamond in the rough; it is relatively undeveloped but extremely authentic, colorful, and cultural. Bolivia’s riches shine through in the country’s high altiplanos, its floating reed islands on Lake Titicaca, the silver mines of Potosi, the infinite salt flats of the Salar de Uyuni, and the untamed tropical lowlands in the vast Amazon basin.”


2)     Next, check out the Locations - Africa category.


Cape Town, South Africa, is one of the world’s great beach cities at the Southern tip of Africa.

Cape Town – On South Africa’s Cape Peninsula, the waters of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans converge alongside the city's cultures. Explore Cape Town with us as you view this video. Begin your Cape Town adventure at The Castle of Good Hope, the center point where the city grew. Don’t miss the District Six Museum, which gives voice to the 60,000 non-white residents who saw their vibrant multi-racial neighborhood flattened during the darkest days of the Apartheid era. One neighborhood spared from apartheid’s wrecking ball is Bo-Kaap, where traditional Cape Malay culture continues amid the row houses of this colorful hillside suburb. Visit the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront and explore attractions like the Two Oceans Aquarium. The waterfront is also the gateway to one of the world’s most infamous prisons, Robben Island. Table Mountain is Cape Town’s most beloved landmark. From Green Point, the site of Cape Town’s futuristic stadium, follow the coast and discover one incredible beach after another.”

3)     Lastly, look in the Locations – Australia-Oceania category.


Go with us as we explore Perth, Western Australia’s capital, on the continent’s west coast.

“Perth – The gem of Australia’s west coast and the capital of Western Australia.

This friendly metropolis boasts pristine beaches, clear water, and plenty of coastline – not to mention an abundance of nature and mineral resources.

People start their visit to Perth by walking through Kings Park, which is larger than New York’s Central Park and home to the Western Australia Botanic Garden. More than 3,000 species of Western Australia’s plant life, including vibrant flowers, are displayed here.


They then head to the Swan Bell Tower for a spectacular view. They also enjoy Perth’s architecture, from the modern glass structures and London-inspired Tudor buildings. Next, they take a ferry ride to Rottnest Island, called “Rotto” by the locals. Or, they snorkel in the Indian Ocean, see wildlife such as seals and birds, and travel across more than 31 miles of cycleways on a rented bicycle. Don’t miss Swan Valley.


This region is peppered with vineyards. Growing grapes has been a long-standing tradition in Perth. Visitors love to go to Hillary’s Boat Harbour for a sunset dinner.”


Note: FREETOGO is free, and the videos on the first Travel Now page do not have ads interrupting your viewing.

However, the videos on the second Travel Now page have skippable ads. You can either wait five seconds before skipping the ads or eliminate them by paying to become a premium member of YouTube.


You can access YouTube’s Premium Membership signup here:


I invite you to check out the above videos and the many others curated for this website.

Also, see all the many ways people use FREETOGO at the bottom of either Travel Now page.

Most importantly, please help improve everyone’s quality of life by sharing this website far and wide, especially with anyone unable to travel freely. Ask everyone to sign up as a member, leave a testimonial, and visit the website regularly!

Get creative and have some fun traveling virtually. I look forward to the day when the term Virtual Travel will be as commonplace as the term travel.
