Morelia is a UNESCO World Heritage site with fun social life. At Villa Montana’ spa compulsive travelers can de-stress with a chocolate bath. Anyone looking for a mate hangs an image of St Anthony upside down at El Miguelito restaurant until a mate is found. Mating is on everone's mind in Michoacan. In Pazcuaro Mario spends 2 years to finish a bowl the way the ancients made them and sells it for $5,000! Giant turtles travel thousands of miles to the Michoacan Pacific coast to mate. At night we follow them laying the eggs and hatchlings returning to the sea with the moon pointing them to the water. less

Diving is now his new passion and he cavorts in three magical dive destinations in the Caribbean. There are many reasons why they call the Cayman Islands a divers dream: this is an entire nation dedicated to both banking and diving! Everything there is absolute: the visibility, the abundance of sea life and the drama of its underwater walls. At least 2 plane rides are necessary to find truly virgin reefs. The remote St Vincent and the Grenadines is such a place and home to a unique type of diving called “muck diving” which reveals the most amazing sea critters. Several of them have not yet been classified! Hurry before they get into every biology book. The unspoiled Tobago, because of its Atlantic currents meeting the Caribbean is known for the best and fastest drift diving. Flying underwater is a whole different kind of sport here. Sort of like skydiving but sideways. Strange and terrific to be tumbling through the water while fish life stares motionless. Hosted and narrated by Roberto Mitrotti less

To French Polynesia, the fabled islands that caught the imagination and the heart of Melville, Paul Gauguin and now The Compulsive Traveler. Of course being pampered on the super-luxurious m/s Paul Gauguin opens the door to romance…. He follow s his heart to Oaxaca, Mexico where his New York friends Marissa and Emmanuel are to be married 3 ways: in a Zapotec, Miztec and Spanish ceremony. Talk about opening up exotic romantic possibilities. And the wedding guests get a taste of the ancient and fascinating Oaxaca culture. In order to find a date, he flies across the International Date Line all the way to exotic Fiji. Love must be somewhere in one of these 320 beautiful islands. And drinking plenty of kava with the locals makes all the girls look like stars. Grenada in the Caribbean is the spice island and the home of all the great aphrodisiacs from nutmeg to cinnamon to chocolate. So a stop there is a must to investigate among others the connection between girls and chocolate. Being dropped by helicopter on a glacier in the Canadian Rockies for a trek is not usually associated with romance. And yet the opportunity is always there as the story demonstrates.

The Compulsive Traveler follows the adrenaline trail! He is incurably addicted to travel and since adventure is the ultimate travel there he goes! Searching the world’s most exciting adventure spots. First on a game drive safaris in Kenya’s Mara and Samburu. Among the highlights is a staring contest with a female lion with a fresh zebra kill nearby. Then he follows herds of wildebeests (someone counted 1.5 million heads) as they try to cross the Mara River and avoid the hungry crocs. He lives a day with a Masai tribe, one of the Ancestral cultures of East Africa and dances on cow dung with them …. Namena near Savu Savu in Fiji is the ultimate pilgrimage site for a diver.. Being on l’Aventure, Cousteau’s dive boat to get there is a religious experience. This dive site is the reason Fiji has been called the soft coral capital in the world. Strong currents bring an avalanche of nutrients and every predator show up. St Vincent is a place for adventurous spirits of all kinds It’s is a string of 32 islands in the Southern Caribbean with primal forests, unspoiled palm fringed beaches, virgin reefs and definitely outside mass tourism, thank God. The main island is home to a volcano, so it’s hilly and great for cycling. St. Vincent has ancient history: he explore archeology. St. Vincent is known as a sailor’s paradise. So he sails. And all without tourists in sight. Great while it lasts. Hosted and narrated by Roberto Mitrotti less
