Episode Description
Thursday, Dec 7, 2017 - 11:00 AM    This is the story of the remarkable, two-year, 25,000-mile attempt to retrace Marco Polo's legendary trek from Venice, Italy to China. This illuminating epic follows two friends from Queens, New York - one photographer and one visual artist and ex-Marine - as they complete the journey by land and by sea, a feat in which all others have fallen short. Equal parts travelogue, adventure story, history trek and buddy movie, they survive deadly skirmishes and capture in Afghanistan, encounter the stinging sands of the Taklamakan and Gobi deserts in a Silk Road camel caravan, and live among cultures, including the expert horsemen of Mongolia. Along the way, they interweave their own feats with Marco Polo's account of his own travels and life. G
