You shot on 8mm film? Or Video8? That must've been a while back!?

The Tucan is also the best hotel I've ever stayed in! So awesome that place!!

Stay tuned by the way! I hope to finish another episode some time next week! Can't wait!


Well first of all I am 75 years young! and I am, afraid technology is
wasted on me so my old camcorder only takes 8mm cassettes. I have got loads
of stuff to copy on to cd but still waiting for my son to show me how to do it!
lol......but I really loved the background music soo relaxing and made me
want to book the next flight out!! LOL I just wished we had 'discovered'
Playa a lot sooner. but I live in hope that one day we will be back! thank you again for lovely memories! x x

Hey guys!

Been absent for a while, because I took a last-minute trip to the caribbean! Unfortunately not playa, but it was Cuba this year! We did land in Cancun for refueling on the way back, so I did feel a little bit "at home"!

I'm so glad you like the video! It always gives me a good feeling when I can create something everyone can enjoy! That's why I got into the filmmaking business in the first place!

I started out with a Video8 camera (don't know if that counts as 8mm or not, but I used that thing for 3 years and it still works until this day!) and graduatly climbed up to the big stuff. If you need explanation on how to put those vids on cd/dvd, I'll be glad to give you some tips!

I'm sure you will visit Playa soon enough! And even though you didn't discovered it sooner, you'll have a blast again, I'm definately sure about that!

Thanks for the applause! Glad you liked the video!!

I know I promised another episode, but due to my unplanned trip, I didn't work for the last 4 weeks, so it'll come very soon!!

Have a great wednesday everyone!

Hey guys!

I know I haven't been posting any new video's as promised, but my company and I went through quite a rough patch! It kind of started when I posted the first video here on this forum. It were the after effects of a theft of my important harddisk and laptop in the month after we went to Playa. At first I had to do damagecontrol and that seemed to work ok, but the real shock came when I thought I was fine (almost a year later) but the opposite was true!!

Last 5 months I have been working overtime to straighten everything out businesswise and financially. I hope 2014 will start out better for me!

So, I'm not making any promises yet, but when 2014 starts the way I hope it will, I will have some spare time to finish a video or 2!

Thanks for all the nice comments and views since I last visited the forum! I'm so happy you guys like it!

I wish you all a very good 2014!

My new years resolution will be to visit Playa as soon as I can!!

See you next year!

I'm very happy with it, I hope you guys like it!
