The ultimate round-world trip, beginning in the canals of Venice in a gondola and ending deep in the Pacific on board a luxury super-yacht. In between, the journey progresses on board the Orient Express to France, where a hot air balloon trip across the Burgundy Valley ends at the charming Chateaux du Fey, home of cooking expert Anne Willan's famous Ecole de Cuisine.

A barging trip along the stunning Canal du Midi follows, with the connection to North America made on board the Concorde, as we fly with actress Lauren Bacall. On the snow covered slopes of Mount Bachelor in Oregon, Jerry Scdouris takes his dog sled team on an exhilarating ride. More action follows in the skies above Orlando Florida, with an aerial dog fight by former US air force pilots as they take everyday travellers for the thrill of a life-time.

In South Africa, a trip on board the luxury 1920s-restored steam train Rovos Rail leads to an elephant back safari in the wildlife-rich Okavango Delta. Finally, this ultimate travel fantasy ends on board the inaugural cruise of Club Med 2 as it sails out of Sydney into the Pacific Ocean full of revellers.
