It’s not the destination; it’s the journey that counts. Endorsing the same philosophy, two adrenaline enthusiasts Rob Boston and Dennis Anderson, take a challenging voyage to go around the globe by uncovering 80 unique modes of transportation, without repeating any vehicle.

Be it traveling on a blimp, fighter jet, chariot, and canoe or resorting to hitchhiking or riding on the back of an ostrich, Rob and Dennis will employ every possible means of transportation to traverse thousands of miles. In a 10 part series exploring new countries across the globe, the hosts navigate through Brazil, Peru, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Tanzania, Dubai, India, Thailand, and the United States.

Rob and Dennis’ fascinating expedition will also bring them to India. In Mumbai, the two hosts are greeted with swarming and busy lanes. They score some Tuk Tuks and race their way out on the busy streets. Elephants, ox-carts and other new forms of transportation will eventually get them to their destination - the beautiful Lake Pichola.

In another episode, see the hosts sweep across Indian lanes in a rickshaw. Even though Dennis has been riding tractors for years, he finds out that driving a tractor down a crowded Indian road isn't as easy as he thought. Rolling to sacred temples and squeezing into a tiny Tata Nano car are just a few of the fun and bizarre ways they have used to usher the annual Monsoon Festival in Calcutta.

The show is produced by Original Productions, a Fremantle Media Company. Thom Beers and Philip D. Segal are Executive Producers and Jeff Conroy is Co-Executive Producer for Original Productions. Julian P. Hobbs is Executive Producer for HISTORY.
