Travel adventure show Word Travels reveals the "truth behind the byline"
For the first time on television, you can join the adventures of real-life travel writers Robin Esrock and Julia Dimon as they battle deadlines, jetlag and their own emotional limits in search of the best stories to file to their editors. Filmed in 36 countries across six continents, Word Travels mirrors the world it uncovers - beautiful, unpredictable, and full of surprises.
