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

When this was first on TV, I watched it faithfully. Mostly (90%) for Andre's Filming, the dude has a great eye. Scott, is okay as a host. Friendly to the folks he meets, and seems interested in the world he sees. Justin, is a goff, plan and simple. Also it seems he wants to joke around, and drink. Holy frack, does he drink water? In certain place he must, because his gut must be wrecked. I love junk food and drink, but I have limits. He is a force of.. I am not really sure. They do seem douchey, which is sad, because that is not the Canadian way. Also, taking a year off to travel? That is insane unless you have a HUGE bankroll. The show is hilarious when they visit North Korea. I suggest watch the VICE special on Youtube, to see a true mirror experience. What I suggest is they should redo the show a few years later, and show what Justin, Scott, and Andre have gotten from it.
