When this was originally conceived, it was meant to represent a guide to backpackers on a off the beaten path traveling. It's timing was just perfect for a couple of reasons.
At its start in 1994, the world is just opening up as the cold war ends and everybody starts looking for tourism. People have started going to places where no outsiders have ever been. But it's not too late that these places start to turn into tourist traps, and the world becomes an homogenized place. In fact, that's what is happening to the show in the last few years. Everywhere is starting to look the same.
This is not a pretty tourism production. At least it wasn't at the start. It was guerrilla filming at the time. That's when it was the greatest. Now closing in on 20 years, it is maybe past its prime.
