“36 Nights” is a montage/documentary that shows our travels through 11 cities in nine countries with them being Venice, Italy; Milan, Italy; Zermatt, Switzerland; Munich, Germany; Berlin, Germany; Copenhagen, Denmark; Stockholm, Sweden; Kraków, Poland (as well as a day trip to Auschwitz concentration camp); Budapest, Hungary; Vienna, Austria and Prague, Czech Republic. “36 Nights” was filmed entirely on the GoPro Hero2 and was filmed and edited by Michael West.

Links to individual chapter videos are found at the bottom, as well as key points in the full length film that you can click on to skip ahead to.

I came home with 4,321 video clips totaling 12 hours, 47 minutes and 36 seconds of raw, unedited footage (86.49 gigabytes worth). Including the travel days to and from Europe, it equaled out to me shooting an average of 20 minutes and 12 seconds of raw video per day.

In getting from city to city, we spent a total of 53 hours and 42 minutes aboard planes and trains traveling to our next destination.

Here is a city-by-city breakdown of where we went, for how long, and who was there.
