Publisher Adam Lowe and writer/filmmaker Barnaby Callaby set off to cause some #troubsinljubs.
After missing the first train (due to the football!), Adam and Barnaby had to take a detour. Adam suspected this was going to be a long journey . . .
With a five-hour wait in Leicester before catching the train to Luton, there was only one thing for it . . . £1 drinks in Helsinki (the bar)!
Some 13 hours later, the Vada boys arrive on the shuttle bus at Luton Airport.
Without sleeping, the boys decide to plunge into the local luxury – and enjoy the rooftop pool at Hotel Vander.
Later that evening, Barnaby and Adam made some rather fabulous friends at AS Aperitivo.
Adam has always been fond of horse meat.
Should Barnaby bite the apple of temptation? Well, his task was to cause #troubsinljubs.
On the shore at Lake Bled, Adam and Barnaby were confronted with a range of local desserts.
Adam and Barnaby meet a new friend: the gorgeous Gregory.
In the church at Bled, Adam confesses (some of) his sins.
While climbing the Great Mountain, the Vada boys witnessed possibly the most Slovenian thing to ever happen.
There’s nothing like overdressing to climb a mountain.
Everybody loves a Eurovision afterparty.
Barnaby asked Adam what his favourite part of Ljubljana was.
Adam and Barnaby were sad to say goodbye to their new Belgian friends.
But their short visit to the coast at Portoroz was welcome. Here’s the gorgeous dining room at the Kempinski Palace Hotel.
Half-way through the return journey, Adam and Barnaby were nevertheless glad to be back in the UK.
And finally, we were so dishevelled we lost the ability to spell . . .
