I really can’t believe what a state the pyramids are in. I thought they had flat rendered sides, but when you get up close, you see how they’re like a massive game of Jenga that’s got out of hand

Karl Pilkington: Adventurer. Philosopher. Idiot.
Join the orange-headed one as he travels the world and discovers its wonders…

Presenting the Travel Diaries of Karl Pilkington: Adventurer. Philosopher. Idiot.

Karl Pilkington isn’t keen on travelling. Given the choice, he’ll go on holiday to Devon or Wales or, at a push, eat English food on a package holiday in Majorca. Which isn’t exactly Michael Palin, is it? So what happened when he was convinced by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant to go on an epic adventure to see the Seven Wonders of the World?

Travel broadens the mind, right?
You’d think so…

Find out in Karl Pilkington’s hilarious
travel diaries.

‘He is a moron. A completely round, empty-headed, part-chimp
Manc.’ RICKY GERVAIS

‘He’d have been happier in medieval times in a village where
you didn’t travel beyond the local community.’ STEPHEN MERCHANT
