We’re happy to see that Julie and Colin's documentary Rowed Trip is featured in the 2017 Adventure Travel Film Festival. Rowed Trip documented their seven-month rowing and cycling journey from the top of Scotland to Syria.
On this journey they used two Expedition Rowboats and voyaged the canals and rivers throughout the UK and Europe. They also carried bicycles and trailers in the Expedition Rowboats and cycled with the boats in tow when they weren't able to be on the water. It was a wild trip, exploring amazing countries along with their own heritage, and it ended in a country that was once beautiful but now is ravaged by war.
The Adventure Travel Film Festival is a multi-day film festival plays in Scotland, England and Australia. The Australian festival is already over but London’s festival is coming up in August and Inverewe’s (that’s in the Scottish Highlands) is in September. This is a topnotch festival with a great lineup of films, speakers, workshops and just a whole lot of fun. So for all our adventurous UK friends, check it out. We sure wish we could attend. Camping out in the Scottish Highlands, amidst other adventure enthusiasts, and revelling in great stories sounds like an awesome weekend. And well, we certainly can't complain about being in London.

In 1987, a pilot by the name of Robert Plath invented a new kind of suitcase - the Rollaboard. It had two wheels and a rigid stowaway handle. While a pretty basic concept, it was revolutionary compared to what already existed (suitcases four wheels and leash that always fell over), and now almost every suitcase is designed in his style.
We feel that the Wheelbarrow Dinghy is to the world of boats that the Rollaboard is to suitcases...
