Megan McCormick discovers the rich folklore and history of Poland. She visits the humble church where Pope John Paul II served as a young priest, discovers anti-Communist sculptures in Wroclaw, hunts for amber on the Pomeranian coast, explores the baroque streets of Gdansk, boards a galleon along the River Motlawa, re-enacts ancient battles in Gniew, explores Hitler's command post in Ketzryn, and kayaks through the Augustow canal to the Belarussian border.
GLOBE TREKKER transports viewers to unforgettable destinations through its stunning photography, rhythmic indigenous music and spirit of adventure. In each episode, one vibrant young traveler ventures off-the-beaten path to soak up the local culture, sample the cuisine and revel in breathtaking vistas. In keeping with their aim of "living as the locals do," charismatic hosts Ian Wright, Justine Shapiro, Zay Harding, Megan McCormick and others explore everything from big-city landmarks to exotic sights in remote villages. The ninth season features brand-new episodes filmed in Madrid, Barcelona, Senegal and Cape Verde, the Caribbean Islands, Antarctica, Brazil and Tibet.
