LP logoGlobe Trekker (also called Pilot Guides outside the United States and originally broadcast as Lonely Planet) is adventure tourism TV.

Globe Trekker – wikipedia

Commercial TV generally depresses me. If I had a gun I’d shoot the TV, or myself.

A great exception to the rule is this program which I love. A huge success, it is phenomenally accurate at showing what it is like to travel the backpacker circuit. No need to go yourself, actually.

Now when will we have decent hiking television?
