      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

        Brother. You're a huge inspiration to so so sooo many people, I really hope you find that joy in your heart, and in the depths of your soul. - Loads of love from Québec!

        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.

    3. Daniela Grajales

      What kind of human being dislike a Yes Theory video. This is the best channel in US-new, so possitive and genuine. OBSESSED!

    4. Casually StrollingBy

      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.

        Bhutan is one of the happiest country in the world because they are not yet being brainwashed by the west to overthrow their govt.,they live the simple life,fresh air,shelter

      Bhutan has no right to call themselves like that. Happiest people in the world lives in COSTA RICA... just google it boy

    10. Mathieu Harvey

      Bro, i wasn't subscribed. I'm officially out of the 50%. Thank god. Ok, going to buy a t-shirt now.

    11. Trevtooicyy

      I cant find any website that says bhutan is the happiest country in the world, every source is saying either denmark or finland. Bhutan is number 95 on the list?

    12. Logan Greer

      I just watched the telling strangers I love them video, and the challenge at the end is to challenge youtubers to do something positive. 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.)

      My boyfriend is a hobbyist Twitch streamer (fierce_dread), about to turn 32 on December 16th. He has dedicated 3-4 days per week streaming for over three years, while working a full-time office job. He is one of the sweetest people I've ever met, has an MBA, and yet always seems to be passed up for promotions at work, as well as never really getting anywhere with his video game passion. This man literally brought me back to life this year. I have struggled with depression for a long time. I was married to a serial cheater for 12 years and we divorced last year, all while I was going through a rigorous aviation training program. Last year was not a good year for me. I met my boyfriend the beginning of this year, and it was like the universe sent me the perfect man for me. I want to do something special for him for both his birthday and Christmas. It would mean the world to me if you would just visit his channel and say hi to him. His handle is fierce_dread on Twitch. Thank you so much to anyone who took the time to read this, I really appreciate it. Wishing all of you the happiest of holiday seasons and the best of luck for an amazing 2020.
