“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts”. So said Mark Twain, and Kevin Dolgin has always agreed. Years ago, having decided to open his own mind, he found himself afflicted with a serious case of wanderlust, which he now hopes to spread to others through this show. A perfect travel companion, with only a slightly eccentric eye, Kevin reveals destinations around the world, seeking out and speaking with locals, inveterate travelers and the occasional oddball. Not so much concerned with the practicalities of travel, WANDERLUST is, itself, a little voyage into the odd corners, little known crannies and unexpected adventures of life .

    Wanderlust – Istanbul

    The Young and the Old, part 1. This month, Kevin takes you to Istanbul in the company of his two teenage sons, Marc and Nicolas, who do their best to ensure, as they put it, that the show is not just for "old people", such as their father. Istanbul has long been one of Kevin's favorite cities, spanning, as it does, continents and cultures and time itself. The visit was so rich that it has been cut into two seperate shows, this is the first part.

    Sick of Prague, with its crowds of tourists? Head to Cracow. Poland's ancient capital is one of Eastern Europe's least appreciated gems, full of winding cobblestone streets, beautiful music, and pictures of the Pope. Kevin takes you through the city, listening to the famous trumpeter of Cracow, visiting the cathedral, with its dragon bones hanging at the entrance, chatting with a local tourism entrepreneur, and having an existential conversation with a giant walking mug of beer.
