Storyline

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 Steven N. Bray

One of the Best Shows of All Time
13 October 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best shows on t.v. You get to travel the world without leaving your house. It is one of the best ideas for a show. Travel it is a simple thing to think about, but as it has been seen in this you have to sacrifice a lot to do it. Scott, Justin, and Andre are all have very good personalities. These people make you want to come back and watch them travel the world. There are shows sort of like this that I have seen an episode for and couldn't even sit through it. The camera work in this show are some of the best I have seen on t.v. Their great work has even given them a couple Gemini nominations. This is a great accomplishment for any show. Two of my favourite episodes are when they go to Antartica and Madagascar. Great images and places I will probably never get to see. Definitely would like to go there though.
