As much about the journey as the countries themselves
9 January 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I think the comment made by chopendoz from Australia shows they missed the point of this show entirely. As the show title suggests, this is as much about the methods used travelling from Ireland to Sydney as it is about the countries themselves. If called "Wandering for a year without a map" then perhaps...

Being a TV show they did not have the luxury to spend weeks at a time in each location. The basic premise was to plan out a journey that was not only as safe as they could make it, but also highlight the cultural differences of each country they passed through, all the while avoiding wherever possible the modern method of the commercial airline.

The vehicles used were often unheard of, frequently bizarre (and occasionally unreliable!), and it was through using these vehicles they were able to meet and greet the usually friendly and open locals who use such methods of transport on a daily basis.

For those expecting a full on "Holiday" style travel show you're looking in the wrong place, but for those with an interest in far away places with strange sounding names and how the people there live and get about (presented by a very likable trio of travellers), then you could do a lot worse than give this a look!
