Star Alliance is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. To commemorate this emerald occasion, it created a five-part miniseries to showcase unique culture from the countries of its five founding members.
The miniseries stars travel writer Robert Reid, who travels around the world to enjoy five unique cultural experiences from the five Star Alliance founding members. These experiences include martial arts in Bangkok, scaling buildings in Stockholm, visiting an Inuit community on the edge of the Arctic Circle in Canada, and playing in a Native American band in New Mexico.
Oddly, Lufthansa took Reid to the nation of Georgia rather than showcase a cultural uniqueness of Germany. While the horse race is interesting, I don’t understand that choice…
Here are the five videos:
Perhaps I do understand why Lufthansa would take Reid to Georgia…it is my favorite of the five videos. There is no question these cultural experiences are special and undoubtedly memorable. Still, let’s not forget that you need not experience something as unique as the above to have a rich cultural experience. Sometimes that comes without leaving a hotel room or airport.
Hey Star Alliance, don’t forget me next time you need a blogger to travel the world for free!
