Expanding one’s world by traveling outside of their home and comfort zone is often the way that many of us grow and change.
Starting in 2013, the late chef and author Anthony Bourdain took viewers around the world in his CNN show Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. Instead of hitting the usual tourist spots, viewers followed Bourdain as he visited parts of the world that don’t often receive a lot of fanfare. During these travels, he would immerse himself in the culture of the people he was visiting and joined them for a meal.
Sadly, Anthony Bourdain took his own life earlier this year. The final season premiered in September, remembering the man who brought the world into living rooms of his viewers. What I loved about this show was that it introduced viewers to people and cultures that they might have ever been introduced to otherwise. To me at least, it was a reminder that at the end of the day, we are all human beings.
I recommend it.
