America the Wright Way

One of my favorite TV shows that I do watch when I ever have time is Globetrekker Globe Trekker also called Pilot Guides was formely known as Lonely Planet.

I really admire this 42 years old british named Ian Wright
This is his 7th year hosting Globe Trekker and he has hosted over 50 episodes.
He now also stars in the cable channel Discovery Travel & Living show VIP Weekends with Ian Wright.

This year he appears in America the Wright Way, which airs on the Travel Channel. In this series, Wright travels to American cities and does his usual bit of visiting interesting locations and interacting with locals.

Before he appeared on television, he ran a community center with his wife. Ian spent 3 months in Guyana as part of a Prince's Trust initiative called Operation Raleigh. He also had extensive travel experience in Egypt, India, and Romania.

Ian is a vegetarian, though he will occasionally break this for his travel documentaries and is acclaimed for a pretty good painter.
