Hi!, I am Youmi.
I grew up in the south of France in Aix-en-Provence. I have been flying drones since I bought my first DJI Phantom in March 2013. For over 3 years now I have produced aerial videos of my different travels. My last adventure took me from Russia to New Zealand, travelling through 11 countries in 15 months, gathering aerial videos and photos of amazing places such as Central Mongolia, the Great Wall of China, active volcanos in Indonesia, and many more.
The result of this journey, From Russia to New Zealand by drone was part of the official selection of several film festivals and won the "Best Landscape" video award at the US Drone Film Festival 2016 in Oklahoma City, USA.
YoumiTrip started when I decided to bring my drone with me as I set off on my long journey from Russia to New Zealand. It has evolved for over 2 years and is now my way to share with you my adventures through New Zealand (where I now live) and other countries I travel to.
