    What country do you think is the happiest in the world? Well, after hearing from many traveler friends that it might be this small country... I had to go see it for myself. I am personally on a mission to understand the basic parameters of joy and happiness so going on a trip like this was a dream come true...

    Thanks for watching! Despite what you might see in the video, Bhutan was actually quite challenging for me to travel to. The trip was planned very last minute so I didn't have time to do much research, I was still jet-lagged from the 14-hr time difference and the elevation was having weird effects on my headspace. But I pushed through even though filming alone in these conditions makes it so much harder to bring positive energy into it. Sitting down with the ex-Prime Minister and hiking to Tiger's Nest completely changed everything in the end however.

    I'm on a bit of a personal journey of understanding what the fundamental parameters of joy truly are, so going on a trip like this had quite of a profound effect on me in the end. Hope you got something out of it and looking forward to capturing more of the world's beauty. - Thomas

      Hi, I just wanted to say I loved this video because it reminded me of a book I had to read for class and loved. The book is called Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner. He goes to other less known countries and tries to find what defines their happiness. Bhutan was one of them! You basically portrayed the same message Eric did. I got a real sense of wanting to explore and see the world from the book. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to explore but may not be able to or just wants a good read.

                              Hey Yes Theory, I just want to say I love your stuff. I have been following you guys since the beginning and have loved every part of it. Though something has been troubling me for the past few months, I understand it is a company and the larger you get the bigger stuff you guys can do. With that being said, I miss the small local interactions of seeking discomfort with people. Whether it was asking people to call there crush, or going sky diving with strangers, or even skinny dipping with random people. That's where I feel the heart of Yes Theory began. I think where you guys are is incredible!, but I only ask for you guys to revisit your past, and still do the small seeking discomfort interactions. Cheers guys!, PS: don't forget about Derin!

                                  Well the reason Bhutan is carbon neutral is because it's a country with lots of trees and not very many inhabitants. If you compare Bhutan to the Netherlands (they are about the same size), the Netherlands has 17 million inhabitants, while Bhutan only has 800 thousand. They just have a lot more space for forrests and trees etc. Especially with immigrants coming in left and right, western countries will never be carbon neutral no matter what. Now don't get me started on Suriname, because that country is even bigger than the Netherlands and only has 500 thousand inhabitants...

                                          Ehm according the the UN World Hapiness Report they are the 93th in the list. It seems the only reason Bhutan is mentioned as happiest is because the first UN High Level Meeting called Wellbeing and Happiness: Defining a New Economic Paradigm, was chaired by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and Prime Minister Jigme Thinley of Bhutan.

I love your videos, and I love what you do. However, I don't appreciate the amount of swearing that you do, even if it is bleeped out. I have come to realize that I am happier when I don't swear. I challenge you to go a day without swearing. (No need to film it, just respond with your feelings afterward.)
