The Voyager with Josh Garcia

Ages: 13 - 16Producer: Litton Entertainment

Unassuming Josh Garcia pulls on his backpack and sets out to see the sights. Today we’re in Rome. Tomorrow, Positano. The next day? Maybe Phuket, Thailand.

Garcia graciously finds unusual spots to explore, even in cities that are some of the most well-known in the world. For example, in Italy, he ventures out to a water buffalo farm to see how famous bufala mozzarella cheese is made. He has a local expert with him and the two walk through the farm and observe the cheese making in progress.

The next day, Garcia visits Sorrento, Italy, and learns how cameos are made. He sweetly buys one for his grandmother. He also makes gnocchi and learns to be a Roman gladiator, and later, he gives falconry a try. He’s curious, eager and excited by everything–even an elephant playing in the water in Phuket. “Awesome!” he says. And we have to agree. It’s easy traveling with Josh Garcia.
