All the way from Finland comes not another mobile phone but two guys with a passion for extreme travel experiences. For the two-man crew of Madventures, Riku Rantala and Tunna Milonoff, theirs is not a typical idea of a holiday. They visit remote areas of the hemisphere in search of the unusual, the bizarre and the totally insane, immersing themselves to it while filming themselves without a script and merely going with the flow. Their show became a cult hit in Finland that Travel Channel decided to show them in the US which began last month.

Shot on location in Palawan, Cebu, Manila and Pampanga earlier this year, the show is at times funny, often outrageous and shocking to the senses, a very raw depiction of things no ordinary tourists would want to encounter or experience. I didn't even know about Bagbag Cemetery in Manila until I saw the episode and found the desecration of tombs rather distasteful. To my surprise this morning, segments of the episode are already posted on Youtube including this one below:
