Listen how to make the most from being dealt a pretty ordinary hand.

A brother and sister overseas in seperate countries. They fly home and are forced into a 14 day lock up in a pretty ordinary hotel. Coincidentally, the same hotel. They talk to us from the inside and share their experiences on how they ended up there, what they do to pass the time and what they were most looking forward to on the outside. You might be surprised.
