their anger and nerves and for time alone to think, this was the perfect

including, Namibia and Durban in Africa as well as Mumbai in India,
which had been extremely scorching. Light brown sand that feels so soft
under your feet, and the crystal blue water that tempts you to take a
dip was how half of the cast had entered the movie. Along with the
bright sun, the moonlit nights captured the beauty of nature at it's
rawness as well. The film showcased many activities, rapidly increasing
the popularity of roller-blading, sand boarding and snow boarding.

road trip of a lifetime where three friends reunite after years to
embark on a road trip in Spain. Three destinations of their choice and
one adventurous trip that made them face their deepest fears. Four
cities including Costa Brava, Seville, Valencia and Pamplona were
visited in three short weeks. As they cruise by the sunny roads of
Spain, you can just look back and feel the heat. They land up on a beach
in Costa Brava, where they go deep sea diving. The sea blue water, and
the life of the underwater just makes you dream away, making a certain
calmness fill you. The friends make a stop for the Tomatina festival
(tomato fight purely for fun) in Bunyol, Valencia before they move onto
the next city, Seville, where they go sky diving. Up they go, between
the clouds, and you see Seville as a whole and finally falling right
into the arms of the city. The last leg of their trip brings them to
Pamplona and here they participate in one of the most dangerous
activities - Bull Run. Along with these cities, there are short glimpses
of Barcelona, Andalusia and United Kingdom shown in the rushes as well.
