1458 DVD - Bolivia Adventure South America Bolivia is a country of extremes in the heart of South America. Snow-covered mountain tops, dense rain forests and the semi-desert of the Altiplano all jostle for position in the most confined space. Herbert Schwarz and Astrid Neudecker travelled through these fascinating landscapes on lonely trails with their motor bikes.This film takes you on a trip away from the well-trodden tourist paths. Experience the challenge of the famous clay tracks of the tropical lowlands, cross raging rivers in the middle of the rainforest with the two motor cyclists and share the fascination of meeting people of another culture. From La Paz the journey goes through the Yungas road cut into vertical cliffs, to the gold mining region on the Rio Mapiri and through dense rainforest areas at the foot of the Andes. After a steep climb of more than 3000 metres, it goes through the highlands along Lake Titicaca until the end of the navigable road network is reached after a laborious journey through the glacier world of the Cordilleras. The DVD can be played in German, English, French, Italian and Spanish. 091-0155 DVD Back to SCOTLAND Herbert Schwarz tells his wife Ramona this story one evening at home, a glass of whisky in hand, as they sit by the campfire. As is the way with travellers’ tales, the wanderlust sets in, and there’s only one remedy: to get back on the road. In August 2009, the couple set off for Scotland to retrace the tracks of Herbert’s first motorcycle tour thirty years ago. Mainly on narrow single-track roads, they experience 8,050 kilometres of riding enjoyment on the new revised BMW R 1200 RT. Their experiences offer a fascinating portrait: Scottish hospitality, the spectacular Glenfinnan Highland Games, freak weather conditions, Carlos the ghost who haunts Eilean Donan Castle, the Glen Ord distillery where they find out what makes a good whisky, the historic National Wallace Monument in Stirling and the eerie catacombs in Edinburgh, and breathtaking and varied scenery from the lowlands with their gently rolling hills, to the solitude and calm of the Inner Hebrides (Isle of Arran, the Kintyre peninsula, Isle of Mull, Isle of Skye), to the highlands with their rugged and wild west coast and peaceful east coast, and the Grampian Mountains. The DVD can be played in German, English, French, Italian or Spanish. 091-0193 German language Englisch language Italian language
