“Rogue Trip”, led by ABC News Correspondent Bob Woodruff and his 28-year-old son Mack Woodruff, takes viewers on a father-son adventure to some of the world’s most unexpected places – roguish nations and territories mostly known for conflict, but each possessing a unique power to surprise, amaze and inspire. They’ll visit Colombia, Papua New Guinea, Ethiopia, Pakistan, Lebanon and Ukraine. Along the journey, Bob and Mack will share raw, big-hearted moments when “going rogue” together changes their perspectives – not just on their own relationship, but on other people and places.
In the imagination of adventure travelers, Papua New Guinea is the last frontier -- a wild place that's so far from the familiar world, it can feel like traveling back in time. So naturally, getting lost in this vast, largely unexplored island has become a rite of passage for any explorers worth their salt.
The last time Bob visited Pakistan was to report on the war in neighboring Afghanistan. Twenty years later, he's back with his son Mack to see a different side of the country. Mack knew Pakistan only as a place his dad went to report after the 9/11 attacks.
Lebanon is the melting pot of the Arab world, a tiny country exploding with culture. Mack's only impression of the Middle East was what he saw on the news… so he's delighted to find that Beirut is a beach lover's dream.
Ethiopia is a time capsule of a nation and a place Bob has always wanted to visit. It is a holy place to Christians, Muslims, and also Rastafarians. It's also the birthplace of coffee, and the mountainous home to the world's best long-distance runners.
Journalist Bob Woodruff and his 28-year old son Mack kick off their around-the-world adventure in Colombia -- a country once notorious for narco trafficking that now wants to be known for eco-tourism. With the end of a long-running civil war, vast swaths of untouched wilderness are now accessible to visitors for the first time in decades.
Ukraine is one of the youngest countries in the world. It's actually the exact same age as Mack, gaining independence after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. But it remains caught in a tug of war between Russia and the West, so most travelers head elsewhere.
