Long Way Round

Click pic for video clip.
My wife and I just watched a fantastic 7 episode series called Long Way Round.

It is a documentary of Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman taking two motorcycles from London to New York. It's a fascinating journey and they are both entertaining guys. Some great looks at the cultures they travel through and a lot to learn about the human spirit from their determined wills. This series is the anti-Borat.

Highly recommended. It's available on Netflix.

And as I was researching links to include in this blog post, I discovered they are planning another long trip to the south tip of Africa. It's called Long Way Down. (Sept 2007)
