Stupifying, Positively Stupifying

There is a tour company named  veryfirstto.com that is offering a three month long tour of 10 countries and 20 locations within the countries.  What is the purpose of this lengthy jaunt? 

To visit spots where movies were filmed!  If you aren't sitting down from that, sit down right now -- the tour costs $300,000 per couple!

Bear in mind the fact that all of the people connected to the film are long gone. Thus you will be able to stand and stare at where they used to be.  For $150,000 per person. 

Koh Phi Phi Leh island, Thailand - Leo DiCaprios The Beach was shot there.

Machu Picchu - The Motorcycle Diaries

The Trevi Fountain, Rome

If you're not a movie buff what would you say to a tour that visits every Michelin three-star restaurant in the world?  "Bring it on!" would be my enthusiastic response.

The two year (two year) tour visits all 900+ UNESCO World Heritage Sites.  At the end of two years with the same people, I'd expect a marriage and/or divorce and possibly a group murder attempt of a bad tour guide at the end of it.  It might all turn out to be more interesting than UNESCO World Heritage Sites might appear to be at first glance.

Now I wonder if the firm provides a licensed psychiatrist on that tour.  People crazy enough to take a two year tour really do need on-going help.
