    What country do you think is the happiest in the world? Well, after hearing from many traveler friends that it might be this small country... I had to go see it for myself. I am personally on a mission to understand the basic parameters of joy and happiness so going on a trip like this was a dream come true...

    Thanks for watching! Despite what you might see in the video, Bhutan was actually quite challenging for me to travel to. The trip was planned very last minute so I didn't have time to do much research, I was still jet-lagged from the 14-hr time difference and the elevation was having weird effects on my headspace. But I pushed through even though filming alone in these conditions makes it so much harder to bring positive energy into it. Sitting down with the ex-Prime Minister and hiking to Tiger's Nest completely changed everything in the end however.

    I'm on a bit of a personal journey of understanding what the fundamental parameters of joy truly are, so going on a trip like this had quite of a profound effect on me in the end. Hope you got something out of it and looking forward to capturing more of the world's beauty. - Thomas

                    The happiest country in the world but they don't allow religious freedom and they persecute people for converting from buddhism or hinduism to islam or christianty. It was worse it seems in the early 2000s and hopefully they continue to change their views around conversion and also closing worship spaces but common how great would it be to see a Church with a giant penis on the wall HAHA!

                                                                                                Tiger's nest was a stunning experience for me. What an honor to meet the nicest people I've ever met, most law-abiding vehicle drivers you will ever see. Literally every single person we met there was smiling and eager to help you if you are in need in hope of gaining nothing. So yeah do not try to tip anyone. It's an act of disrespect for their culture. The fact that a travel agency helped me withdraw some money because of my Amex card wasn't working in any of their ATM and didn't ask for anything in return is simply astonishing. Have you met such a travel agency?

                                                                                                Literally, the agency guy walked with me all over Paro and then he didn't want anything after I asked. Must experience culture for anybody interested to experience something amazing. Just make sure you take cash with you. Their banking system is still obsolete and being captive by India's state bank and its regulations. When I there, they were in the process of upgrading it so maybe it's changed now.

                                                                                                I hope they become more independent in time. They deserve it all. SBI (State Bank of India) still owns 20% of Bank of Bhutan that felt so wrong. Yes, I know you guys helped them. I don't hate India. I just want more for Bhutanese people. <3
