DENVER, Aug. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Gray Line Worldwide's award-winning, original video series, "The Bucket Life," continues to expand and enrich the global travel community by sharing cultures, sights and stories behind some of the world's most iconic places. The newly released "London" episode delivers a meaning, tradition, wonder and joy through the eyes of the locals who share their home and history with travelers each day.
"A lot has happened since Gray Line's founding in 1910, but for more than a century, we have consistently focused one thing: getting travelers to the sights they've imagined visiting their entire life. But, we are more than just bus tours. Our partnership with local companies lets travelers experience the sights in a genuine way that bridges sightseeing with appreciation for the people and culture that created them," said Brad Weber, President & CEO, Gray Line Worldwide. "The entire idea behind this video series, behind living the Bucket Life, is that these experiences enrich your life in a way that makes it unmistakably better."
"The Bucket Life" travel video series takes aim at connecting people with places and cultures, bringing destinations to life through the stories and experiences travelers encounter. Commissioned by Denver-based Gray Line Worldwide and hosted by local Gray Line sightseeing companies around the world, each episode amplifies the wellness, perspective and sense of fulfillment that travel can provide.
The global travel company today launched its ninth episode in its original video series with "The Bucket Life: London," the second season's closing episode. The London episode not only highlights the top urban attractions, it takes viewers beyond the city limits to Stonehenge, Bath and other quintessentially British sightseeing stops.
"Londoners, and the British overall, have a strength and resilience you see today built upon those same qualities lived on a daily basis since A.D. 50," said Mikesh Palan, Managing Director of Gray Line London. "When travelers visit us – and really see what we see everyday – it is our ability to continue living and celebrating life. We know that humans have much more in common, more similarities, than differences. Through our diversity, art, history, through tradition, through architecture, these are expressions of our culture. And, we love sharing it with the world."
Celebrating "The Bucket Life"
Gray Line's first foray into original video highlighting its global offerings kicked off in 2015 with a standalone mini film, "Find A Reason To Go." It was an incredible journey of four friends, all seasoned videographers, who together traveled the world, visiting six continents in 21 days with Gray Line tours. The widely syndicated original video and content program highlighted what travel industry research has indicated for decades: in-destination activities, sightseeing tours and attractions are the reasons people travel.
"The Bucket Life" takes viewers to the next level with individual destination episodes in tune with a deeper connection – not just a checkmark, but rather a lasting and forever changing connection with each destination. As one of the most successful products stemming from Gray Line Labs, an internal incubator gathers, analyzes and reports on data, insights and traveler behavior to create meaningful travel experiences, The Bucket Life series continues to inform strategic Gray Line offerings and fuel the next generation of sightseeing experiences.
Local Gray Line Experts in the World's Top Destinations
"With local operations in the world's top destinations, Gray Line Worldwide consistently provides travelers with easy booking options, friendly and knowledgeable guides, and the best tour experiences in more than 400 offices around the globe," said Weber. "We are really an extended family around an enormous global table, and we rely heavily on each other to make Gray Line the go-to sightseeing experts on six continents."
