Katrin has some terrific videos. An infectious sense of humor in the middle of difficult conditions. Great humor. Great adventure. Definitely Type 2 fun. English captions available.

Not touring relevant, but I found it to be an interesting cycling video by the "Vegan Cyclist" who has found that cycling help him overcome other failures in life, etc. Warning: a  you will encounter a good deal of hipster jargon.

Girl is backpacking across Central America, meets bikepacker. Despite never really cycling before, decides to join him on 5 week, 2000 km bikepacking ride - by buying a used mountain bike and equipping it mostly from Walmart...

A lot of the 30 minutes or so is more about getting ready but I found it to be an entertaining watch - here.
