Pig parties and sangria were two popular ingredients in the yearly years of charter travels - and something many still associate with Spain and perhaps especially Mallorca. The popular holiday trips really took off through the 60s and 70s where Mr. and Mrs. Denmark could now also afford one of the popular flights.

Now mum and dad went on a well-deserved vacation to have a little fun and get an impressive tan at the same time. If you did not return home with an impressive tan, you did not really have anything to show! Sunscreen was not necessary; Nivea was all you needed to bring in your suitcase.
The film Eventyrrejsen is a great picture of a time when the Danes' holiday culture really changed. Now you can embark on an adventurous journey into the heat with popular Danish actors such as Frits Helmuth and Bodil Udsen – watch Eventyrrejsen at Kino Club tonight.
