New Episode Tonight!

If you live in the US or Canada, tune in tonight for the second episode of the Duggars' World Tour!

After visiting Scotland and Ireland, the Duggars are off to London! Watch as they take a ride on a double-decker bus, see Stonehenge, and have the pleasure of attending an authentic English tea. Then, Jim Bob gets behind the wheel and has quite the experience driving on the left side of the road. 

19 Kids and Counting: World Tour, "Royal Duggars" starts at 8PM EST/7PM CST on TLC. 

As always, we will post a recap after the show.


  1. Waiting for the recap the show aired almost one hour ago.

  2. I enjoyed seeing London through the Duggars' eyes. However, I do wish they had been a little more sensitive to their host country when it came to driving. They always referred to driving on the "wrong" side of the road. A less offensive term might have been "other" or "left". The take-away lesson here is that different is not wrong; it's just different, and that's ok.

  3. Freddie, I have used the term "wrong" before, and I can tell you what I meant by it - perhaps the Duggars were using it the same way. I was referring only to the fact that it went against everything I had been taught about driving. I felt like *I* was doing something wrong and even dangerous. I know that there are many other countries who drive on the left side. I certainly don't think they are wrong and we are right. I just feel very apprehensive driving on the left side, because my training has taught me that it's dangerous. I realize that it isn't dangerous in left-side countries, but my instincts are telling me that I am doing something wrong.

  4. Lisa, I appreciate what you're saying: that "wrong" is how it feels to you based on your training and habits, but perception is everything, especially when dealing with people in foreign situations and how it sounds from the outside is "Your way is wrong (and therefore mine is right)".

    I think what surprised me here was that the Duggars are normally much more sensitive and thoughtful of others' feelings. This just seemed so out of character for them.
