I was an armchair traveler before I finally left for my first real trip to Ecuador in 07′ and one of the most inspiring things was the television show Globe Trekker.
It’s an absolute must watch show for anyone interested in seeing the world from their couch.
I have not watched an episode for a long time but recently stumbled upon a documentary featuring one of the globe trekker hosts. I highly recommend it.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-jIh5YcIP8]
