Aimed at the adventure seeker, Departures is an action-packed and personal journey about two travelers. Scott Wilson and Justin Lukach leave their lives behind in search of unique experiences through some of the most beautiful and remote places on earth. From epic landscapes and unforgettable culture, to the often trying times that come with international travel, the series chronicles the unforgettable friendships, personal successes and sometimes crushing disappointments that befall them on their journey. Accompanied by their friend and cameraman, Andre Dupuis, Departures showcases the revelations of two travelers who strive to find themselves and new perspectives while trekking across the globe. Departures is as much about the journey as it is the destination. No prizes, no contests, just real life and real travel. Written by

The main complaint I have seen from people is the inclusion of Justin in the show. They completely miss the point of him being there. We have Scott who is a seasoned traveler, who lives and revels in the hunt for new sights, he does his best to learn the culture and keywords of the languages he encounters. Justin on the other hand is the counterweight to it, too many travel shows have two or three perfect travelers exploring a city marveling at how amazing it is. Justin though adds an interesting point of view from what most people would be like as a tourist. So unlike some, I see his inclusion as one of the main reasons I watched the show. Some of Scott's scenes even went a little too far into the stereotypical travel show until Justin got him back on track.
