Juggling and Traveling in 2010

In my plans and goals of 2010 I laid forth the following:

“Release my International Juggler 2009 video, the one I’ve been working on for the last year, which features me juggling in every country/place I visited. ”


“Shoot, edit, and release International Juggler 2010, a similar video as above, of all the places I visit in 2010. I have some ideas about how to make this different/better than the 2009 video, but I don’t need to think about that too much for the next few weeks.”

Win/in the works.

I do have a project like last year’s, which shows everywhere I travelled this year. But I mix shots from both 2009 and 2010, picking the best shot from each country over two years. However, this video is mostly for me to use in my show, and is not put up online.

What I wanted to do is share my travels as I went along.

In 2009 I shot lots of video in lots of different places, for example on my trip to Spain, I was there for four weeks, but only the best five seconds of footage got into the International Juggler 2009 video.

This year, if something interesting happened in a country, I shared more than just a few seconds. For example:

Antarctica (gale force winds across the deck of the Star Princess):

Papua New Guinea (jumping from rocks, active volcanoes, snorkling):

Australia (wallabies):

India (elephants, etc):

England (White Cliffs of Dover):

Iceland (juggling in the Blue Lagoon with crew members from the Ocean Princess):

Greenland (a great view):

Namibia (juggling, jumping and running on a huge sand dune):

Helsinki, Finland (soundtrack by Sibelius):

New York (with added cute child):

Funchal, Madeira (lost: 1 white beanbag):

” Go to the Berlin, British, and European juggling conventions. And a convention in September/October too. Maybe the Turkish again, maybe another. ”

Partial win. I went to the Berlin, European, Brussels, and Lublin conventions. I didn’t get to the British juggling convention.

Nine plans and goals in the traveling with work and juggling section. 6.75 wins, 1.25 fails, and one project kinda still in the works. If I do release the video of all the places I juggled this year, it won’t be called International Juggler 2010.
