When Amie waves goodbye to Samantha as she leaves on her European journey she is quite content to stay at home while her elder sister sets off to explore the world – well maybe a little bit of it to start with. Amie has no great desire to travel, she enjoys her life in Castle Bridge.
Samantha is the adventurous one and she can’t wait to spread her wings: meet new people and experience different cultures. Two weeks on the Costa Blanca is only the start of her planned epic journey with her long-suffering boyfriend, or possibly fiancé – depending on Sam’s mood – trailing along behind. But, if it can go wrong, it goes wrong – even before Sam and Gerry have left the airport – and their first trip abroad as a couple turns into a nightmare as one disaster follows another.
