Ewan Mcgregor and Charley Boorman-Long Way Round

2 men, 2 bikes, 20,000 miles...

This is a great documentary BBC TV series follows actors Ewan McGregor (The guy from Star Wars,) and Charley Boorman (Also an Actor but not as famous) on a motorcycle trip around the world. The two friends will travel through such places as Siberia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, and Alaska. Adventure awaits them at every corner. They do finally end up in in New York. The filming is done by on board cameras and one ride along cameraman, as well as a support crew that sort follows along.

For over 115 days. Their trip starts in a slow wind up fashion but within one episode the action and fun begins. From this adventure they were able to produce a DVD, book and a TV contract to make it all possible. Go Ewan and Charlie go, I hope you finish the famous this long adventure around the world in 115 days.

This is a good set of TV shows, I watched them all and was interested and amazed at the adventure all along the way. so if you get a chance to buy or watch these DVD I definitely recommend them.
