The show was initially titled Karl Pilkington's Seven Wonders of the World, however the decision was taken by Ricky to change the name to the more provocative An Idiot Abroad behind Karl's back. The name change was actually revealed to Karl halfway through the show in order to record his reaction. Karl himself has said in interviews that he thinks the name change will harm the show and that people will not want to watch a program about an idiot.In a poll on Pilkipedia 61% of fans reported to be happy with the name.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the zombies or the aliens or the robots or the alien zombie robots, my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.

And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.

An Idiot Abroad is a 2010 light entertainment travel documentary television series broadcast on Sky 1, and a spin-off book published by Canongate Books, featuring Karl Pilkington, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. The central premise of both the television series and the book is that Pilkington has no interest in global travel and so Merchant and Gervais make him travel, for education and comedy purposes respectively, while themselves staying in London and monitoring his progress.

There's plenty of history in this ancient city, including the 13th century Cathedral which houses the Santo Caliz, a 1st-century Middle-Eastern stone cup believed by many to be the Holy Grail. This chalice was used in a mass here by Pope Benedict XVI on the World Day of Families in 2006. Valencia was a great trading city as signified by the magnificent gothic 15th century trading house, La Lonja,La Lonja de la Seda, Valencia a Unesco World Heritage site.

All this history slipped into the shadows for me the first time I walked towards the port end of the river bed. The first glimpse that something spectacular was about to appear was in the photograph on the left. If you click on it to see the large version, in the background is the first part of the "Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències", the most amazing collection of modern buildings I have ever seen, designed by Valencian architect Santiago Calatrava.

He then did hundreds of projects there, including many public builldings and played a key role in the development of Mexican architecture. His major contribution to structural engineering was the development of thin shells made out of reinforced concrete, as can be seen here on the roof of the underwater restaurant.

Having said that, in the natural environment the mortality rate of first born belugas is over 50 percent. I felt most sad for the walruses, constantly circling in their tank, with their tusks, normally at least a metre long, cut short and capped with metal, as you can see in the film.
