A Mediterranean Microadventure

 

In an interview a while ago I listed some people who I would love to collaborate with on an adventure project. One of them was my friend Tem. He makes films.

Whilst our magnus opus still awaits, it was brilliant to squeeze in a quick little microadventure in Croatia with him last summer. If you’re shivering in winter right now, this blast of sunshine might be just what you need. Or it might make you cross. Hard to tell. Here we go…

Just a pity he didn’t include the bit when I genuinely thought the hire car was going to burst into flames as I’d tried to reverse up such a steep hill that smoke was just pouring from the clutch / engine. Or the bit with the roast pig on a spit. Or seeing how absolutely knackered Tem was when we had to beast it up the hill at race pace to try to catch the sunset.
I can’t wait for next summer…
