WEE TRIP TE SCOTLAND & BACH
England & Scotland
Road trip from London through the Scottish Highlands to the Isle of Skye and back down through the Lake District.
Karl's friends Matt & Kathryn buy the "Hippo", a £400 van that they decide to test on this road trip to the Highlands of Scotland. However the van breaks down before they even reach Edinburgh. It's a public holiday, all the garages are closed and the car rentals are fully booked. This trip could be over before it even begins.
AMSTERDAMAGE: QUEEN'S DAY
April - May 2012
What happens in Amsterdam stays in Amsterdam. Unless you bring a video camera. A crazy weekend of drink, drugs and debauchery in Amsterdam for the legendary Queen's Day festival.
But all turns to darkness on the nightmare journey home, where we get stuck in the one place we don't want to be: Belgium.
ITALIA: THE ROAD TO ROME
Italy & Switzerland
June - July 2012
From dislocating my shoulder by cliff diving, to Matt & Kathryn’s showdown at Gladiator school, this is the epic conclusion to the ‘Hippo’ Trilogy, one final road trip for our group of friends, before they went our separate ways.
Our journey takes us through the tourist highlights of Northern Italy: Lake Como, Verona, Venice, Cinque Terre, Pisa, Florence, Siena and Rome.
