Ian Wright is the king of Lonely Planet/Globetrekker travellers. He's been everywhere. He's got an excellent sense of humor, understands the beauty and significance of everyone he meets and everywhere he visits. He tries it all but is also willing to make a fool of himself to make us laugh.
9.5 is the highest rating I have given thus far because Ian has influenced me for years. He has inspired me to travel to off-the-beaten path locales like Mongolia (see my review for that Globetrekker episode) and many other places. Hilarious, inspiring, and a fantastic travel buddy (via TV).
