Edward Hasbrouck, "The Practical Nomad", is once again offering weekly commentary on the lessons for real-world travelers of the new season of the CBS reality-TV show about travel around the world, "The Amazing Race", on his Web site at http://hasbrouck.org/amazingrace .
In the reality-TV contest, "The Amazing Race", 12 pairs of travelers compete against the challenges of a trip around the world.
As the contestants on each season of "The Amazing Race" make their way around the world -- in a match against time, limited budgets, language barriers, the elements, culture shock, and the stresses the trip puts on their relationships with their partners -- Edward Hasbrouck offers weekly commentary on how the show compares with the reality of travel around the world, and what we can learn form the show for our own travels.
"The Amazing Race" won the Emmy awards as best reality-TV show in 2003 and 2004, and has been the only travel show on national network broadcast TV in the USA. "The Amazing Race" has won rave reviews and a "cult-like" following among travelers in countries around the world where it has been broadcast.
Travel expert and consumer advocate Edward Hasbrouck is the world's leading authority on around-the-world travel. Edward wrote the book on travel around the world, the acclaimed "The Practical Nomad: How to Travel Around the World", http://www.practicalnomad.com .
Since the first season in 2001, Edward Hasbrouck has been the only travel expert covering the show, and the race, as a travel story. Each season, members of the cast have read Edward's books to prepare for the race, and have been among the subscribers and avid readers of Edward's columns. He's interviewed contestants after their trips, and been consulted by would-be contestants as an expert in the skills travelers need for the show and for real-life, off-camera journeys around the world. Last season, Edward's columns featured exclusive eyewitness photos and descriptions of the race, including activities that were part of the race but were never broadcast.
Broadcasts of "The Amazing Race 6" on CBS-TV in the USA began Tuesday night, 16 November 2004. Edward Hasbrouck's columns are posted the morning after each episode on "The Practical Nomad" Web site at http://hasbrouck.org/amazingrace and e-mailed to subscribers to Edward's travel newsletter. This season, Edward's columns arfe also featured on IndependentTraveler.com.
Edward Hasbrouck is also available as a speaker and commentator on "The Amazing Race", real-world travel around the world, and how ordinary people can realize their travel dreams.
