I opened iMovie on my MacBook for the first time this morning. I was determined to get to grips with an app that is praised for being easy to use, especially as I’ve collected lots of video from my various travels.
Why not edit them, tidy them up and share them online?

And I like to learn new skills, so maybe YouTube is my future.
Anyway, here’s Seoul – complete with stock music soundtrack:
