Next, they found a costume shop and got ready for a traditional masked ball though, once they got there, it seemed more like a small house party, nothing like the city's biggest annual masquerade ball, Venice Carnival, that kicks off on February 1st.
The rest of the episode was all downhill as Karl made a failed attempt at using a jet pack before the pair headed to Macedonia (an early detour on their trip to China) where they hung out with gypsies who rubbed Warwick's head for good luck, played bagpipes fashioned from a dead goat, and launched Warwick into the sky Up-style.
Perhaps the only real insight that came from the episodebesides the fact that gypsies make bagpipes out of goatswas Karl's revelations about traveling with a friend for the first time. [Traveling with someone is] "when you find out what people are like, their little downfalls, the little irritating things they do, everything is exaggerated." And, anyone who has ever taken that first trip with a friend or partner, knows he is speaking the truth.
