Yep. On the same premise as the amazing race but no challenges to do along the way. They have been given their whole budget up front as opposed to a bit each leg but can earn more by working along the way which is good.

The kid is an annoying fecker!

Never heard of the amazing race, will look it up. Yeah the kid was doing my head in too!

I have to say its enjoyable, some of decisions would make your head melt. I was laughing at them all trying to get out of London.

What age is the kid? He's mopey but nothing unusual in that if he's as young as he looks.

Referring to Dussledorf as Dumbledore did make me laugh. I like the two older women, one is so driven to get there and the other is like "Ah no, we should enjoy it"

Shows not quite what I expected it but enjoying it none the less and it's interesting to see what everyone is planning.

Everyone is tearing through the money should be interesting to see who cracks when they start to run out of cash.

If they get 36 hours at each stop they have plenty of time for a bit of touristing there. I'd be looking to get there as quickly as possible which is kind of the whole point!

They have a good attitude.

The risk of a 24 hour bus is you're so wrecked after it you need a proper rest after it.
