It’s a big day: Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there, and cheers to premiere night for Big Crazy Family Adventure. Whether you’re a parent, traveler or virtual tourist, tonight is your chance to live vicariously through the Kirkby family — Bruce, Christine, Bodi and Taj — as they start their 13,000-mile journey from British Columbia to Ladakh, India. And they’re doing it all without an airplane! Check out the stats and watch a sneak peek below.
We asked Christine and Bruce, “How do you prepare for a 96-day trip halfway around the world?” See their tips for traveling internationally with kids.
See Bruce’s pictures and Bodi’s sketches, which captured Leg 1 of their journey from British Columbia to Busan, South Korea, via canoe, train and cargo ship.
After the show, watch Bodi and Taj’s Top 5 and get more insight from Bruce on Leg 1 of the journey through his video slideshow, British Columbia to South Korea.
