Host Joseph Rosendo's open-hearted and welcoming personality invites viewers to join him on his cultural discoveries around the world. In its fifth season, TRAVELSCOPE stays true to its mission of illustrating the enduring truth in Mark Twain’s quote, "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness."
"Greece - Cruising The Isles" - A Greek Island cruise sounds like a bit of a cliché, but not when Joseph and the crew of TRAVELSCOPE make landing on some of the Goddess Athena’s special children. There’s plenty of ancient history and beautiful scenic bays to explore, but the real life of the voyage is the opportunity to pull the small cruise ship right up to the docks and discover the heart and soul of the Greek isles and the people who inhabit them.
There’s always a story to be told and a laugh to share around a table of great food, local wine and music. Joseph catches the unique rhythm of each island on TRAVELSCOPE'S own Grecian odyssey.
