Travel Man's Greatest Trips: Out and About

Travel Man's Greatest Trips: Out and About

Series 1



It’s a busy night for Richard Ayoade, what with hosting the Bafta TV Awards on BBC1 and rummaging through his wheelie bag for Channel 4 to select his favourite Travel Man mini-breaks.

Among them is his ludicrously expensive weekend in Dubai with Johnny Vegas (their opulent suites cost nearly £15,000 a night) and his kayak tour of Helsinki’s shores with Paul Rudd (“You don’t see enough kayak chases in films, do you?”).

Awards for most visually entertaining sequence go to the one where he and Chris O’Dowd squeezed into Noddy-sized cars to hurtle around the streets of Vienna, and David Baddiel reluctantly riding a camel.


Richard Ayoade raids the Travel Man archive to look back on some of his greatest trips. In this episode, he presides over a selection of the finest adventures from over 40 mini-breaks, beginning with a tour of Vienna in miniature hot rods with Chris O'Dowd, before jetting off to Dubai with comedian Johnny Vegas to scale the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. He also recalls canoeing around Helsinki's 300 islands with Paul Rudd, rafting in Florence with Rebel Wilson and sightseeing in Iceland with Jessica Hynes.
