Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman’s circumnavigation is the stuff of legend among travelers. London to New York on an off road. Then they did it again a few years later traveling from John O’Groats in Scotland to Cape Town, South Africa. Oh, did I mention, they did these trips on motorcycles. What really makes these series stand out is that they show you what it takes to plan, prepare, and execute a massive worldwide adventure. Early episodes even serve as a short film school course in travel documentary filmmaking with the series’ directors. More importantly, they do not shy away from embarrassment and failure. And they fail a lot. They always get back up. They always work together. They always find solutions. They always embrace the wild and crazy world around them. That is what travel is all about.
