I have pointed loads of lads to the links and none of them are on bikes.
They loved them.
I'd love to see one of the TV stations take them and make a series.
It be far better than some of the shit on at the minute

Damn you Oisin Hughes, I am stuck at a desk with the sun shining outside and your videos have reminded me that I am wasting my life moving pieces of paper around. Someone tell my wife I'm gone to Albania...

DVD on a bigger screen than an iPad could work out good, as long as you've got your ass covered expenses wise. Thoroughly enjoyed them and plan on watching the series again with the remade versions.
Yep - let me chew on that - thanks for the input....

Go on oisin, as said before your series is better than the long way round,that inspired you to the take trip.
I'm sure Austin vinces site would sell some of your dvds
Look at nick sanders flogging them at nec every year and he's books and dvds are not a patch on your stuff...and I should know, I have shelf full of them.

Brilliant - be potential for an Irish TV series in the making there, get a pilot off to the tourism board or TV3/ITV and see if they'd be interested in commissioning some episodes. Better than painting fecking planes.
Done a good bit of flying recently on US carriers and the 'mericans push the auld home town touristy angle on the in-flight video stuff. No joking, you could see something like your videos setup on the aer lingus planes on the US flights.
There's potential, but sure we're always optimistic about our own ideas !

Genuinely wish you the best of luck with it.

+1, informative, interesting and much better than most that drivel they commission.

Some boyo's heading into Cartagena with machetes and improvised road blocks are guns legal over there or would the cops bust yo white ass for 'carrying' on the bike ? I'd say for 20 pesos they'd look the other way and let you do the lone ranger popping a half a dozen fookers trying to rob ya, or you could end up in jail, getting rhode.. maybe 40pesos then.

Was in Brazil afew years back and similar to Columbia some areas are as dodgy as fook, stunning women that [/snip], cheap food & beer yeu'd be phished for 20quid but also have to stay on guard the whole time as pale face gringos stand out like a sore thumb and the overall impression is that of shady types buzzing around like wasps trying to sting ya at any given opportunity.

The end of 'costa rica' pretty much summed up what I was thinking, you need to go backwards to go forwards, or some such insightful affirmation, so whare deh fook is the Mexico vid ?, and c'mon you shurely smuggled a camera into one of those strip joints and got wasted and started schlepping honeys on the ass shoutin and a'hollerin 'who is yer daddie' ? ( pst. you can edit that stuff out for the Irish TV series boss )

Bought the first book on paper back and watched the vids........over and over again! Downloaded them onto a memory stick and lent it to friends. Every one of m put it on with the intention of watching one and ended up watching the lot in one go. Thought you were extremely open and honest throughout the book and series. Fantastic work man

Just saw that thread now, and watched the first video. It's just brilliant, beautiful pictures and very well told.
It will take some time to watch them all but I will for sure!
Thanks!

Well, I finished the watching of the 30 episodes... Enjoyed them a lot.
Particularly the Mongolia part, such beautiful landscapes, that's amazing.
So looking forward to the last 10 episodes
In the meantime I will watch your other vids, and buy the books

Thanks for your great job, the vids are really well done, you could do a movie out of them, it is quite entertaining!
