The second series of Intrepid Journeys screens on TVNZ Family with another batch of globetrotters ready to ride rough-shod around the developing world in search of real adventures.
This week on Intrepid Journeys, actor Danielle Cormack spends time with Bedouins on her journey through Syria and Jordan, getting quite a different perspective on the people of the Middle East. Highlights of Cormack’s trip include the natural wonders of the Dead Sea and the man-made spectacular of Petra, the ancient city carved out of stone. She also visits the ruins of ancient Greek cities and even an intact castle used during the Crusades. “I’ve always wanted to float in the Dead Sea,” says Cormack. “It was so salty, like a tin of anchovies in one hit.”
