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 take turns exploring everything from big-city landmarks to exotic sights in remote villages. In the 11th season, GLOBE TREKKER travels to exciting new destinations, including a special trip to London, host city of the 2012 Olympic Summer Games. A six-episode mini-series follows a team of hosts — Justine Shapiro, Holly Morris, Ian Wright, Zay Harding, Brianna Barnes and Megan McCormack — as they take turns tackling one leg of a world circumnavigation. Stops include London, Istanbul, Beijing, Sydney, Santiago, Chile, and San Francisco.
