This Travel Entertainment TV Series has been created by Doug Crisman for the pleasure of others that have traveled or would like to in the future. He shares wonderful surprises that he and his fellow explorers have stumbled upon and filmed during their travels to 23 different countries and 5 continents over the past 10 years.

Doug is a native of the Pacific Northwest in the United States and is currently residing in Philadelphia, PA. He is familiar with travel of all sorts, having lived in over 27 locations across the United States and Canada in his lifetime. As he began to travel beyound the US boarders of this beautiful earth of ours he became addicted to the wonders of different people, cultures, and wildlife, as well as natural and man-made landscapes. During these travels, he has captured many unexpected surprises along the way. He and his seasoned-travel guests share their adventures and interesting facts they learned with you.

To make this series possible, Doug is joined by members of PhillyCAM, a community Television Station that assists all those interested in using all digital media to share their voice and visions.
