For over a decade, renowned travel journalist, bestselling author, and TV host Robin Esrock scoured the globe in search of one-of-a-kind, bucket list-worthy experiences. During his remarkable journey to over 100 countries on seven continents, Esrock uncovered unique adventures, fascinating history, cultural spectacles, natural wonders, hilarious situations and unforgettable characters--proving that modern travel is so much more than just over-trafficked tourist attractions. From the Amazon jungle to the beaches of Zanzibar, The Great Global Bucket List presents a world we don't hear much about in the news. A world that is strikingly beautiful, thought-provoking, incredibly diverse and sometimes, just very, very funny. With his trademark wit, photography and insight, Esrock introduces the inspiring experiences you'll be talking and dreaming about for many years to come.

Whether you're looking for ideas for your next trip, or simply entertainment from your armchair, Esrock is more than just your experienced travel guide. Each chapter unlocks an online companion site with practical information, videos, photo galleries, polls, forums, reading suggestions, a bonus blog and more.
