Lonely Planet Six Degrees is Lonely Planet's flagship travel show, hosted by Asha Gill and Toby Amies. The show is centered on unique people living within locations, rather than simply famous tourist attractions, with one of the hosts meeting with one contact in a specific country, who in turn leads them to another contact, and so on, following the idea of six degrees of separation. In the first season Asha travelled to Mumbai, Buenos Aires, Kuala Lumpur, Melbourne, Auckland, Cape Town, London, and Singapore; while Toby travelled to Sydney, New York, Havana, Hong Kong, Berlin, San Francisco, Mexico City, and Paris.
The series ran for 3 consecutive seasons and showed on Discovery Networks and dozens other international channels.
Famous quotes containing the words degrees, lonely and/or planet:
“Always the laws of light are the same, but the modes and degrees of seeing vary.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“The lonely Earth amid the balls
That hurry through the eternal halls,
A makeweight flying to the void,
Or compensatory spark,
Shoots across the neutral Dark.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“After the planet becomes theirs, many millions of years will have to pass before a beetle particularly loved by God, at the end of its calculations will find written on a sheet of paper in letters of fire that energy is equal to the mass multiplied by the square of the velocity of light. The new kings of the world will live tranquilly for a long time, confining themselves to devouring each other and being parasites among each other on a cottage industry scale.”
—Primo Levi (19191987)
