About Louis Cole

British explorer, travel vlogger, and philanthropist Louis Cole invites the world to “Live the Adventure” with him. With his YouTube channel amassing close to 2M subscribers, Louis shares daily vlogs full of humor, travel, and adventures with YouTuber girlfriend Raya Encheva, including personal musings like “My Response,” where he publicly debunks the notion that he was filming North Korean propaganda by posting recent travels to the DPRK. In 2016, Louis celebrated his 1000th vlog post and founded The Solvey Project with fellow YouTuber Dave Erasmus, broadcasting their travels to eight cities in 30 days in the interest of finding “compassionate problem solvers” to help make positive differences in the world.
