Hi there. I am Joel Jaws Andrada and I am a Travel Blogger and Videographer. Here is a sample of my work.
I lost my drone in Batanes, Philippines. I went to Batanes to cover the wonderful and amazing tourist spots in collaboration with a local travel agency.
I went to Vayang Rolling Hills and took off. My first attempt failed as I chickened out and decided to land as soon as I felt the gustiness of the wind. I told myself, "next time, Jaws... next time." And then in ten minutes, I took off for the second time. I struggled piloting my drone.... until I could no longer control it. I wanted it to return to me but the wind just won't let it. I could feel my drone's yearning to come home to me... I stared at the distance counter on my mobile go higher and higher as my drone went farther and farther. I watched my drone as it grew smaller and smaller in the horizon until we lost contact. To some, it was just a drone. To me, it was all the video projects and travel opportunities gone with the wind.
One thing I learned in Batanes is to never give up especially when I went back to Vayang Hills on my last day. The wind was a little less gusty but still feisty as ever. Batanes taught me that life will always be tough and the only way to live is to be tougher and sway with the wind.
I am not giving up. This is what I am good at. I am asking help from you so I can replace my lost drone so I can start making travel videos again and fulfill my commitments. If you are also in need of a video editor, I can work remotely for you.
Thank you for your time and for even reading this piece.
