Raw Travel is an adventure travel & lifestyle series showcasing the rapidly growing wave of socially and environmentally aware, independent travel. The series weaves together themes of eco-tourism, volun-tourism (giving back) with underground music and authentic culture in a way unique to U.S. television.
Executive Producer and host for the ½ hour weekly series is AIM TV Founder Robert G. Rose, an experienced Executive Producer who has overseen over 300 episodes of 1st run programming and traveled to 30+ countries. Rose collaborated with key production members from his previous creations under his “American Latino Syndication” banner, which he sold to Los Angeles based LATV Networks in 2008.
While shooting Raw Travel, Rose & his crew traveled like typical budget travelers (by bus, boat and train) to destinations which offered unique opportunities for authentic cultural, environmentally sustainable, socially aware and life changing experiences. The Raw Travel crew endured earthquakes, stomach sickness, cramped chicken buses and creepy critters for the chance to experience authentic culture, view incredible landscapes and form long lasting friendships. True to the title, the program illustrates the raw and often unglamorous reality of independent travel. The show simultaneously showcases how this type of travel is not only more affordable, but can spur personal growth and fulfillment.
“I’m humbled by the confidence our broadcasting partners have demonstrated with generous time periods in cities all over the U.S. They had plenty of programming options and they chose Raw Travel,” Rose says. “We’re looking forward to showcasing real travel for real people, that doesn’t revolve around games, contests or celebrities. Raw Travel instead celebrates the wonderful and diverse world around us, which thankfully, needs no gimmick to be both entertaining and life affirming,” Rose continues.
The website www.RawTravel.tv has undergone a complete facelift that allows fans to interact with producers, view bonus clips, get travel tips and help shape the direction for future episodes.
