A Wild Vacation in the Pacific Northwest

Jul 29, 2014 | 474 videos
Video by Benny Zenga

In this peppy travel diary, filmmaker Benny Zenga and his brothers decide to celebrate their parents' anniversary with "something epic." How epic? They round up more than a dozen of their relatives, load everybody into a pair of hand-painted vans, then trek down the Pacific coast with a caravan of art bikes and motorcycles in tow. Along the way, they stop to skate at Portland's Burnside Park and take a dip in the icy waters of Cannon Beach. It's a lively, delightfully unconventional vacation—and this video diary sure beats an ordinary photo album.
