Ewan McGregor (of Obi-Wan Kenobi fame) and Charley Boorman (of McGregor's sidekick fame) have done some serious mileage on tape...
NetFlix and Hulu have both just added Long way 'Round
(London to NYC by going East
) and Long Way Down
(Northern tip of Scotland to Southern tip of South Africa) for ewer viewing edification...
Both worth a watch IMO.

What these guys learn is that no matter where you go, people are good and kind and generous.
Just the opposite of what the Bilderbergers want us to believe.
Then get a bike and get livin'!
