Episode 3

The author Gideon Lewis-Kraus describes leaving America for life in Berlin, to ease the sadness after his father abandoned the family home. But Berlin isn't enough and only embarking on a series of world-wide pilgrimages will help him. The journeys turn out both amusing and moving, and are abridged in five episodes by Katrin Williams.

3. The next adventure is Shikoku, Japan. It's a temple pilgrimage that goes round and round,
and in the wettest of weather..
