Unlikely travellers ( visu )
3 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 134 libraries worldwide
Unlikely Travellers is a remarkable film about six unique people who take a life-changing trip to the other side of the world. They're real, raw, hilariously blunt and quite unlike anyone you've seen on television before. This is their story: six fabulous adventurers, each with a unique and challenging intellectual disability. They have more baggage than the average tourist but no less passion for travel and achievement. Most of them have never travelled before. Many have never left home. Their two-week trip to Egypt will test them against the elements, their own fears and obsessions, and a culture they know little about. Theres an autistic boy who has trouble with crowds and has to have the aisle seat, a former circus trainer who knows what to do if a camel gets lockjaw, and a thirtysomething lady with schizophrenia who only hears friendly voices. Theres a forty-year-old man with an unwavering passion for life, a decorated sportswoman with a loving fiance ́and an introverted young woman who craves independence and a good-looking man with money. From selection to preparation to the trip itself, they will each learn to face their insecurities, chase their dreams and explore their limitless possibilities. They will climb mountains and bridges, take terrifying leaps of faith, fall in and out of love, overcome exhaustion, fear and the hustle and bustle of big crowds, and show the world what they are capable of
