Storyline

Some people dream big dreams. Only a few bold adventurers live them. Two such adventurers are Denis Belliveau and Francis O'Donnell, who took a wild idea - they wanted to retrace Marco Polo's entire 25,000 mile land-and-sea route from Venice to China and back - and spent two incredible years of their lives trying to turn it into reality. IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF MARCO POLO chronicles the extraordinary journey of two ordinary guys - Denis, at the time a wedding photographer, Francis an artist and U.S. Marine veteran -- as they venture on foot, on horseback, on camel-back, in jeeps and trucks and boats and trains, through Venice, Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, several former republics of the Soviet Union, China, Indonesia and India. Written by Belliveau, Denis

An amazing documentary of two friends
6 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this a few minutes ago, on PBS, a 90 minute documentary of two friends traveling 25,000 miles in 715 days, half way around the world, to travel in the footsteps of Marco Polo.

WOW! Amazing. Really a must see documentary. No really, you must watch this! Best documentary I've seen in a very long time.

I don't want to post any spoilers.

You must see this. Is it ten lines yet? I hope so.

OK This is a movie about two guys who travel around the Middle East and Asia and explore the route Marco Polo took 700 years previously. Did I reach ten lines yet?
