England - Gloucestershire Cheese Rolling Festival 26.05.08
Gloucestershire is the only place in the world where people are crazy enough to chase a block of cheese down an almost vertical grass hill once a year.
I went along on a day tour with Haggis Adventures and all week I had been psyching myself up to compete and what do you know our bus crapped out when we stopped for our morning tea brake along the way. By the time we arrived and had hiked 20minutes up to the main hill we had missed the first 2 races and there was already thousands of people crammed in to the best viewing spots. It was absolutely pouring down and the thought of pushing through crowds up a slippery 200m high hill hungover to compete just didn't feel right. So I found myself a spot at the bottom of the hill and laughed myself silly while videoing others throw themselves down the hill after the cheese!!
