New York City
New York City is the epitome of fast-paced and with so much to see and do, our host family has to plan their trip very carefully. Riding the subways proves an efficient method of transportation as the Roberts family visits the major attractions like the Empire State Building, Times Square and Rockefeller Center, but there's much more to New York than attractions. A stroll through New York's ethnic neighborhoods is the perfect follow-up to learning about immigration at the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island and then relax as the city's frenetic pace fades away in a gallop through Central Park by horse carriage.
Peru - The Inca World - Machu Picchu & Cuzco
The city of Cuzco, the famous center of the Inca world, is full of colorful history, culture and adventure waiting to be discovered as Nathan & Seamus explore the massive stone walls and a Spanish colonial town square. Take the train from Cuzco into the mountains to discover the majestic Inca city of Machu Picchu where soaring stone structures have stood for centuries and are surrounded by ancient footpaths and trade trails, perfect for hiking including the famous Inca Trail.
Costa Rica - Volcanoes and Rainforest Adventure
The family heads to eco-friendly Costa Rica to get a close-up look at the area's most active volcano, while staying at a hotel right at the base of the mountain. Then head up to the fabled cloud forests of Santa Elena and Monteverde to find all sorts of jungle creatures including sloths, iguanas and poison dart frogs. Canopy tours, weird wildlife encounters and rumbling mountains are all part of this Costa Rican interior adventure.
Florida: Miami & The Everglades
The crazy art deco buildings painted in an array of colors and a festive atmosphere has the Roberts grooving in the outdoor cafes of South Beach. Surrounded by water, Miami is an ideal place to discover the ocean, and the Roberts do just that...on board an amphibious vehicle, playing in the waves, and checking out an aquarium. Next, they head inland to explore the Everglades where they come face-to-face with alligators on an exuberant airboat ride and a hike through the backcountry.
Scotland - The Scottish Highlands
Scotland has long been known for its deeply rooted heritage. In this episode, the family heads for the hills...the Scottish Highlands that is. After a brief visit to Edinburgh, it's "All Aboard!" as the family head north by train through the craggily hills and open plateaus of the Scottish Highlands. Once there, the family finds all sorts of diversion as they explore the ancient and majestical forest, play in the snow, feed reindeer, taste haggis and try to get a snapshot of the famous Loch Ness monster.
Ireland: The Castles and Cliffs of County Clare
Known for its rugged limestone rock formations and ancient castles, County Clare offers all sorts of off-the-tourist-track exploration, and the kids are thrilled to discover it all. Explore tall sea cliffs at the famous Cliffs of Moher and head beneath the limestone for an underground adventure in the Aillwee Caves on The Burren. Although the kids may not be as impressed as adults by ancient dolmens, the giant castles of Clare like Knappogue and Bunratty are sure to spark their imagination of days gone-by filled with knights and kings.
The Roberts family hits the road running in Paris in attempt to be the first to find the incredible Eiffel Tower while getting sidetracked by the City of Light's artistic culture. Join the host family on a treasure hunt in the Louvre where they discover the gems of the art world; on the city's stinkiest tour in the Paris Sewers; and for a ride down the Seine River for a view of Paris how it was meant to be seen. Watch as the family finds the Eiffel Tower and it's time to climb, picnic, ride mules and go-karts and enjoy one of the greatest monuments in the world.
Costa Rica - Monte Verde and the Pacific Coast
Join the Roberts family as they explore the cloud forest of Monte Verde where snakes and bats have their own museums and the best way to get around is by horse or zip line. Next, head by ferry from the mainland to kick back on the Peninsula Nicoya on the Pacific Coast in the decades old backpackers village of Montezuma and experience the coastal magic of Costa Rica, one of the world's most diverse eco-zones, with jungle and ocean encounters with all sorts of creatures.
Alaska - Kenai Peninsula
Board an RV with the Roberts family as they head south through Alaska's well-traveled, but still remote, Kenai Peninsula. Spot eagles soaring in the skies and otters swimming about as they paddle through Kachemak Bay and discover ocean life as they dissect a squid and check out whales in Seward. Plus, board a scientific research vessel that still measures the effects of the oil spill and gives the kids an up-close look at massive glaciers crashing into the waters of Prince William Sound. The adventure continues when the kids meet a Iditarod musher and his dog sled team and hitch a ride.
England - Bath & Stonehenge
Beyond London, England has a much slower pace and a more natural surround. In Southern England, the Roberts discover area history in the Roman town of Bath and a tour of the world's most magnificent pre-historic relics, Stonehenge and meet the locals as a game of cricket is explained. In a boat tour up the Avon River, Nathan & Seamus enjoy the relaxing lifestyle of the English countryside.
England - The Lake District
After hopping a train to the north, the family finds a world of literature awaiting in the English Lake District, an area so abundant with beauty it inspired celebrated authors like William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Nathan and Seamus get a chance to explore some of the area stories at the World of Beatrix Potter Museum and the natural surrounds as they bump through the countryside in an off-road adventure, steam down the lake and up the mountains and get to know some of the area's woodland and lake creatures.
Head up the Amazon river basin in Peru to an eco lodge set deep in the rainforest. Join the family as they explore the thick jungle rainforests looking for monkeys, snakes, birds, bugs and other jungle creatures hiking through and up above the canopy and kayaking down the river. Plus, meet a local farmer who explains the healing powers of native plants and help Nathan and Seamus find clues to solve riddles along The Children's Rainforest Trail.
Heritage and Culture in the Southwest: Located in Southwestern Ireland, Killarney is a land of many charms, which natives will tell you is a paradise in the waiting. Using Killarney as a base, the Roberts hop a horse cart to Killarney National Park where they storm Ross Castle, drive the Dingle Peninsula where they learn about local marine life including Fungi the Dolphin and head to Blarney Castle where they, of course, kiss the stone and get the gift of gab.
