From the charming fishing towns of Nova Scotia to the vast wilderness of Newfoundland, these are the last great. open spaces of Eastern North America. A touch of New England, a dash of Germany, here a British fort, there an Irish brogue, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland are mixed-up worlds peopled by the descendants of hardy colonists who came to fish and trade fur. Lighthouses sweep the skies, the seas are littered with shipwrecks whales cruise the coastline in the summer, storms rage in the winter, but the warmth of the hardy people who live in these two provinces makes the lonely landscape beautiful rather than forbidding.

Building on five successful seasons of travel shows featuring Europe and the Pacific Rim, award-winning travel journalist Rudy Maxa broadens his horizons - and those of his audience - with the launch of RUDY MAXA'S WORLD.
In this new 13-part series, Rudy offers his sophisticated take on a destination's history, culture, architecture, politics and cuisine, while also turning a journalistic eye to the people and lifestyles of Russia, Estonia, Turkey, India, Argentina, Japan and Thailand.
The season begins in India, where Rudy visits the Taj Mahal and the crowded alleys and villages of New Delhi.
Later, Rudy indulges in resorts nestled along the Baltic Sea, marvels at the Hermitage's treasures in St.
Petersburg, explores the ancient ruins and royal tombs of Turkey's southern coast, learns to tango in Argentina, witnesses a Buddhist ceremony in Kyoto and sails in a long-tailed boat through the canals of Bangkok.
