An Antipodean Adventure
Rated 5.00/5 based
on 2 reviews
This is an overland travelling adventure from London to Sydney with a twist - we tell the ludicrous truth! What's it like being cooped up with a friend for an entire year in a slapstick Land Rover sweatbox, breaking down in almost every country, getting robbed, viewing some amazing charity work, riding elephants, cowering in Army bases and bribing police? Great fun, as it turns out! More
This is the true story of two friends embarking on a year-long adventure of comedic ineptitude driving across half the world in a modified Land Rover Ambulance raising money for the charity, ActionAid. Our trip would take us skipping through the riches of Europe and Turkey, across incredible Iran and Pakistan, journeying up through the hysterical humidity of India to the coolness of Nepal and the Himalayas of Tibet, before arrowing down through South-East Asia towards our final destination of Australia. On the way we’d be molested by men, chased, ruin a perfectly good balcony, bribe the police, hide in an Army Base, get molested by men again, get propositioned, get robbed, have the privilege to view some fantastic charity work, smoke Afghan marijuana, ride elephants (unrelated to the last point), almost kill a wedding party, and break down nigh on a hundred times. And get propositioned again. Hopefully that sounds like a tale worth reading, but if you’re still undecided, let me assure you that the second week was even worse!
