“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 .
