Hamish and Andy are currently filming Gap Year South America

FOR most people, kicking back with a mate and joking about cooking a lasagne on a lava flow would just be idle chatter.

But for Hamish and Andy it became a mission. On their recent five-week shoot for Gap Year South America, they stopped off at the active Pacaya volcano in Guatemala with a cold pasta dish at the ready.

“We had a very cartoon view of it that we’d just hike right up to the crater, get a giant fishing rod out and lower the lasagne down,” explains Andy Lee who’s back home editing Gap Year while the duo wait for Hamish Blake’s wife Zoe to give birth, before they return to finish the shoot.

Anonymous asked: "Hi! First of all thank you for your blog! It's my reference for all things Hamish and Andy! :) Just wondering, Hamish always says how he is 1/8th Italian and all that but we never seem to hear about Andy's origins? Do you know where his family is from? Just wondering where he got his beautiful looks! :) Thanks!"

Hey there! No THANK you for following you wonderful anon.
Andy’s origin is Irish (from both side of his family)
If you watch Caravan of Courage Great Britain & Ireland they go to a castle were Andy’s family is connected to. Hoping his family member was the owner she was actually the maid. Since he lied to Hamish he had to get a Falcon land on his ass.
Also sourced from personal knowledge.
Have a good day! :)
