long way round

I have to say that I am really enjoying this series about Ewan McGregor and his pal Charley Boorman riding bikes around the world. Through Europe, Mongolia and Russia, Alaska, Canada and the US. You know I've been preoccupied with Mongolia and Russia lately so it was right up my alley.
We have been ordering it from Netflix and I'm hoping the final disc comes today because I can't wait to continue. The first 2-3 episodes were about the team preparing for the trip. I'd say go ahead and watch it but you don't have to. The good part is the actual trip. Don't be put off by the prep part. Ewan and Charley are humorous guys and this is half the fun. They are also down to earth and you can imagine hanging out with them would be good times.
The video here is kind of naughty but pretty funny. It's all about balls so you might not want to watch it with the little dudes. Depending on what kinda family you got going on.
Here's the series website.

We were watching it last night! I secretly have a crush on Ewan, so I totally don't mind when my man has it on :)
