Have you guys seen the travel show Departures? It was recently added to Netflix Canada and Adam was pleasantly surprised when he saw me watching it. "I used to LOVE this show!" he exclaimed. We've now viewed the first two seasons together and finish each episode with the intense desire to travel the world. What I love about Departures, is that it's unlike any other travel show I've seen. You really connect with Canadian travellers Scott Wilson, Justin Lukach, and cameraman Andre Dupuis like you're part of their crew. Andre's cinematography honestly makes me want to shoot even more videos, especially of our travel adventures. His commitment to get the exact shots he needs is so inspiring, it's no wonder he's won multiple awards for his work on Departures.
Like I do with all shows I love, I had to conduct some light research to see what these guys are up to now. I ended up finding that Justin lives in Vancouver AND has mutual friends. I was explaining this to my best friend and her husband on the way to dinner on Friday, as they're my strongest connection to him. We arrive to dinner and who's sitting right beside our table, but our mutual connection! So of course it is explained that we were JUST talking about the show, how I'm a fan etc. and she reveals that he's actually heading to the restaurant later that night. So, here with photo evidence and all, I got to MEET Justin! It was such a cool experience getting to talk to one of the stars of this show that ultimately feels like an old friend. Thanks for taking the time to let me fangirl, Justin! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that more seasons of Departures will be in the works soon. The rest of you, go watch it right NOW!
