Drone videos offer some awe-inspiring and amazing views that are usually reserved only for birds.
One of my favorite things to do when it comes to drone videos is to travel the world by drone. From Asia to Amsterdam, check out these absolutely stunning sights brought to you courtesy of drone enthusiasts around the world.

A quintessential Swiss town nestled in the countryside off the shores of Lake Geneva, and set against a backdrop of snow-capped mountains.
