Have you ever watched any of his programmes, foofie?
Palin schlepps nothing like a twenty year old. He goes to far flung places and interacts well with the locals. If one is into travel, or at least mildly curious about unusual places and people, these travelogues are a little window to the world. Not earth shattering, but entertaining and interesting all the same.
People who are easily bored are usually boring people, I find.
Thank you for the compliment. I am immensely boring. Thank you for the compliment. I am immensely boring. Thank you for the compliment. I am immensely boring.
I prefer the travelogue's by Rudy Max, or the Globe Trekker series. I find the hosts more entertaining. Perhaps, it it just the anti-climactic feeling of mine to see Palin doing travelogue hosting, and not comedy. Or, maybe he doesn't have the high cheekbones of John Cleese? Either way, I am boring, so it is easy for me to be bored by Palin's travelogues.
Lastly, I am a firm believer of travel being just another form of "the sillies," since I am not a citizen of the world (just the U.S.A.) and I find the tremendous planning and effort to observe foreigners just a mindless schlep.
Plus, there are too few Europeans I would really want to ever meet. Their history belies, in my opinion, a superiority complex in many instances, of Tower of Babel proportions. No wonder they needed Christianity for so many centuries to civilize many an ego, in my opinion.
