A movie star and his buddy hop on motorcycles for a trip around the world. Probably not my cup of tea, but after a friend highly recommended this DVD series, I picked up Long Way Round. I spent every spare moment of the next couple of days watching; even forgoing sleep.
And then I went and got Long Way Down. What was it about these two documentaries that had me so enthralled? It was the combination of armchair travel, the good old buddy scenario, and the suspense of how will they get past the next hurtle. Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman are genuinely nice guys you want to get to know. So get some popcorn and settle in one of these long winter nights and enjoy this adventure.
