TRAVEL MAN

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - TODAY’S TV -

This is the over­packed mini break – travel with­out mercy and there’s a LOT of lark­ing about.

Host Richard Ayoade’s nar­ra­tion is baf­fling but bril­liant, his mind dart­ing around like a pin­ball ma­chine.

But ul­ti­mately it’s one of the best trav­el­ogues on the box, well re­searched and gen­uinely show­ing us the high­lights and his­tory of a city. It’s how you would like ev­ery trip to be. This time, Richard is in Stock­holm with Sally Phillips, a co­me­dian who “gets” Richard, mak­ing for an hi­lar­i­ous pair­ing.

Dur­ing the 48 hours, they fear­lessly scale rooftops, sing ABBA songs, eat meat­balls, ride a ped­alo, visit the world’s first ice bar and join an in­ter­ac­tive late-night art show, which ba­si­cally in­volves play­ing on their phones.
