This review is from: Ewan McGregor And Charley Boorman - Long Way Round [Special Edition] [DVD]  (DVD)
I came across this DVD purely by chance and on the strength of the reviews, ordered it straight away. I am currently learning to ride and love the spirit of adventure.
Wow! Few television productions have the effect of really taking you a journey with them, but this was definately one of them. I felt the highs and the lows, I laughed (a lot!) and I cried (more than once!). My better half was glued - "put the next episode on, it's only 11.30pm".
It has some great elements - you get an insight into Ewen as a person and what a down to earth chap he seems. Charly has one of those amazing faces you can just watch and makes you smile. And of course all the people they meet along the way - some make you laugh (even more) - the mafia chap with the guitar and the assualt rifle......some make you think and reflect on your own life - the children in the sewers and those with the new climbing wall. The obstacles they came across and the 'going back is not an option' attitude. You come away with a slightly different perspective on life and an inner determination to follow your dreams and interests even if it means a bit of hard work along the way.
