It’s a Long Way Down

July 23, 2008


I absolutely LOVE travel (I do have a travel blog, remember!). I also love motorcycles! AND I also love Obi Wan Kenobi– er, Ewan McGregor. He has a totally cool accent (it IS Scottish, after all!). Well, what do you get when you mix these three things together? Ewan McGregor’s Long Way Down. It’s the quintessential epic travel on BMW bikes, from the tiptop of lush Scotland to the sweltering sands of Capetown, South Africa, 20 countries in all. I wonder how they’ll get across the ocean? Maybe they hop over to Africa from the Rock of Gilbraltar? 😀 Oh it just looks like such a great film. I love travel videos like this, especially when it’s all by motorcycle. You can just experience more of the journey when you travel by motorcycle. Someday I do want to travel like this– cross-country on a motorbike– and I love reading blogs and seeing movies about it.

Long Way Down is opening in select theatres July 31– for just one day! I think one day is not nearly long enough– I really hope they’ll extend it, or bring it back by popular demand. Here’s a snippet of a trailer I found for you:

There’s more about it here, too. They have a little search box where you can type in your zip code to find a theatre near you. The nearest theatre for me is Syracuse, NY. Maybe I can convince Hubs to take me to a movie. Gosh, it’s been 18 years since we sat in a movie theatre!!
