Hi, I am Paul, the person behind the page. I traveled and lived in different countries and the truth is that the stories around me always make me excited about. I love the people I met. They told me about the stories, about the customs that they are living with. It is so meaningful when we have chance to go far, see the lives going on and hear the sounds of life. This is the reason why I created English Vlog. I want to meet and talk to the persons all around the world whenever I can and I save our stories here for your watching. You would find something, learn something from these real people, real stories. Why it is English Vlog, not Japanese Vlog, Spanish Vlog? The reason is that English is an International language. In some videos, you will see me talking in Japanese, or chinese or Thai etc. It is a secret. It's my pleasure to see you here. Hope we become friends. Connect me via youtube "http://bit.ly/EnglishVlogSub" or "http://bit.ly/MrHappyPaul". Thank you!
