Taking a drone on honeymoon


From kissing on the beach to smug smiles over cocktails to holding-hand shadows, most couples will document their honeymoon with romantic selfies.

But Japanese newlyweds Kaz and Mariko, from Kyoto, took it one step further, by taking their drone with them on their round-the-world trip.

Kaz and Mariko Yamaguchi who recently spent their honeymoon by very unconventionally deciding to trek across 41 countries, decided to step it up even further by documenting their experiences in epic fashion–with a drone.

Kaz, the operator of the drone, states that he flew it only twice before their honeymoon, but that certainly doesn’t show through in those stunning zoom-out shots that only only a drone soaring away from the viewer can deliver. It’s like a video selfie, only taken by someone with a one-kilometer long hand.

They have already traveled across countries like Laos, Vietnam, China, Dubai, Ethiopia and Ecuador and have recorded numerous ‘dronies’, each one more stunning than the other. Kaz said that they left Japan in July 2015 and are still on the road, due to return home only in August this year. And with an unparalleled set of video memories, of course.
