This season Anthony Bourdain takes viewers to 15 locations that will surprise him and defy his expectations - for better or for worse. In some cases Tony will be challenged by what he sees. Mozambique is a country emerging from a history of colonial oppression and years of brutal civil war. It's filled with heartbreak and beauty - and amazingly good food that mixes African, Portuguese and Indian influences. It is one of the more surprising places Tony has seen in his years as a professional traveler. The Croatian Coast is at the opposite end of the spectrum. It seems to be unaware of it's own good fortune - beautiful coastline, truffles, wine, cheese and seafood. It's no wonder that some see it as the new Riviera. Against his own best instincts, Tony goes to Finland in the middle of winter. Minimal daylight and the cold weather aren't the big draws here. Tony has a huge fan following in Finland and he needs to know why. Lisbon is a place that Tony feels like he should have visited long ago. There he uncovers the political side of some Portuguese traditions - like fado music. South By Southwest, a veritable deluge of hipsterdom, unexpectedly located in the conservative stronghold of Texas. Austin may be known for being weird year-round, but this event brings together the music, movies, and mixed media of quirky indie fans from around the country. Tony is here to figure out what exactly makes this event so crazy, so awesome, and so unique. And as usual, Tony brings an intellectual curiosity, empathy, wit and a boundless appetite to every location he visits.
