Ever wonder how hosts in travel shows get the job? Backpacking travel writer Robin Esrock came up with an idea for a TV show. A year later, he found himself on a dream, 3-year assignment to 36 countries on 6 continents filming Word Travels- a 40 part series seen on National Geographic, OLN, and Travel Channel International in over 100 countries. Chasing one outrageous adventure after another, WORD TRAVELS recordsEsrock's epic journey both in front of and behind the camera, exploring inspiring oft-overlooked destinations like Sri Lanka, Ethiopia, Lithuania, Venezuela and Romania. Robin’s dispatches carry his trademark wit, stunning photos and eye for the offbeat, providing fascinating insight into each destination, its people, the world of travel journalism, and the reality of TV production. Along the way, we learn how to survive swimming with piranhas, fire doctors, tsetse flies, AK-47 wielding kids, the world’s most dangerous road, food riots, sandboarding volcanoes, running with bulls, and a radioactive weekend in Chernobyl. WORD TRAVELS: Dispatches from the World's Best Job informs, inspires and entertains as it takes you behind the byline, behind the lens, and behind the planet's most amazing destinations.
