See the world
En billett til hver

See the world is an educational journey. Only without much education. And strictly speaking not much of a journey, either.

The world in bird’s eye view! Only that it’s from the ground.

The somewhat whimsical and very talkative radar couple Bertil and Bettina decide to travel and see the world. They grab the neighbour’s suitcase and set off. But
it’s not so easy being tiny birds in a big world. Firstly, it is difficult to find a ship that will take them out on the seven seas, and once on board they discover that the ship is full of very tall tourists! Bertil and Bettina actually don't get to see very much else than long legs. Something must be done. But what? And how?
