Steve and family are just like you and wanted to travel Australia to do The Big Lap. For years they dreamed of leaving the rat race behind and doing this. Finally they did it and they filmed it too! If you want the heads up to what it might be like, then this will give you a really good idea.
There are plenty of travel shows on TV but none like The Big Lap.
They filmed the 10 episode series over 2 years including the planning and preparation for the trip and I think this is one of the best parts as it gives you thoughts on what you might need to do. They show the challenges of getting prepared and their journey. Steve includes all the highs but also the lows, giving a true indication of what life is like on the road.
I find that most travel TV shows are very commercial and you do not feel like you are getting the inside information of TAWKing.The Big Lap is a much more authentic view of what it is really like, so you’ll get a genuine sense of what to
expect when planning your own trip.
I've actually watched the DVD with my family (and have done a review on it here), this was after we'd done our two year adventure and it brought it all back to us. The kids were transfixed on the all the episodesa and we could all relate to so much of it.
course as with any trip, things can go wrong and they did! One of the most heart rendering for us was when their vehicle rolled! We were engrossed. They all escaped unhurt I might add here.
Like most of us, they were
on a very tight budget and actually ran out of money along the way.
They then came up with a great way to make some extra cash and frankly
you could do this too! This DVD set is worth it's weight in gold, if you are about to set out but we loved it after our travels too. It's the video we wished we'd made of our trip. We could relate to every minute of it.
