What makes Lottie special?

Many people have asked us how we’re managing to live out of Lottie for four months, let alone transform her into a mobile studio every evening when we knuckle down to the business of editing footage. For those petrol heads following us, here’s a list of the ways in which…

Hello Greece

Good bye Italy. We wanted to stay longer but the port of Brindisi isn’t somewhere you’d want to hang around long in.
We did however meet the fascinating Jojo Was Noch who was transporting racing horses from Germany to Iran. He gave us lots of advice about what to expect…

After some supremely imaginative re-packing, Lottie now drives like a dream (rather than a waddling…

Packing up Lottie

This evening we packed up Lottie, and then unpacked her, four times.

Picking up the car

Today was an extra special shiny day. A bit like Christmas. Better even, because today we went to Land Rover’s Head Quarters and picked up our Landy – name still to be decided (come to our fundraising event tonight and if you’ve bought the winning raffle ticket you get to…
