Big Crazy Family Adventure
Travel writer, wilderness guide and photographer Bruce Kirkby, wife Christine and their two young children take an epic vacation, and "Big Crazy Family Adventure" invites viewers to come along. Beginning in Kimberley, British Columbia, the 13,000-mile trek concludes 96 days later when the family arrives at a remote monastery in the Himalayas, where they'll live and work for three months with Buddhist monks. To fully experience what exploring the world offers, the Kirkbys discard air travel of any kind, and instead get around by canoe, container ship, ferry, train, pony, and their own feet. Destination highlights of nine hourlong episodes include South Korea, the Great Wall of China, Mount Everest, Kathmandu, the Ganges River, the Taj Mahal, and the stunning cliffside monastery in Ladakh, India.
