TravelTrendz – A way to travel

One channel that is catching the attention of travellers is TravelTrendz. It is the first Indian travel channel. The best part about TravelTrendz is that it is free to air. So make sure to watch this along with your favourites, Fox Traveller and TLC.

On this channel you can watch visits to destinations, weekend getaways, visits to monuments, religious trips, and so on. Not only travel, this channel has adequate garnishing of culture, dining and eating, history and technology. The programmes on TravelTrendz cover not only India but the entire world and space. All programmes have English subtitles.

I have watched many programs on this channel. “Humayun Tomb” programme, telecasted few days back, was quite different. It started from Humayun Tomb and then covered also all the masjids, gardens, and other monuments in vicinity.

People watch marathon during Olympic Games and World Cups. However, I was surprised to watch a marathon on TravelTrendz. In this marathon, players run for several days. It takes place every year in Morocco. During daytime, players run for 60 km or so in deserts. After every 10 km, they get only one bottle of water. In the night, they have to sleep in tents that have no coolers. This is the world’s toughest marathon. Yeah!

The best things to watch on this channel are shows by travel jockeys (TJs). TJ??? Yeah, this channel uses the acronym TJ. You feel like going to travel along with a jockey. So this gives you first person experience. Few days back, I was watching the visit to Shimla by a toy train. I felt like taking the marvellous ride while sitting at home. Awesome, isn’t it?

I am watching this channel on Videocon d2h. You may also be getting this channel on your TV. Just go through the complete channel list. In case you do not find this channel, ask your DTH operator/cable operator to provide this one.
