The Interactive Route Map is now live!!

The Interactive Route Map is now live!!

For the best part of a year I have been working on a way to create an interactive map that would help bring my journey to life. I wanted a way to combine my actual route map (made from satellite tracking points every 10 minutes on the road for over 6 months and counting), my blogs (to date this is 106th published post with just over half the posts going live while I’ve been on the road), my films (19 adventure / journey related...

Thailand – Changing Plans, Racing the Clock and Bangkok Dangerous!!

Thailand – Changing Plans, Racing the Clock and Bangkok Dangerous!!

Entering into Thailand was pretty straightforward to be fair. Things were going pretty smoothly on the border crossing front. I was back on the road and heading for Bangkok where I was planning to leave Boris for a few weeks before entering Myanmar. Well, that was the plan until about 1pm that day. The fateful email from our Myanmar tour agent broke the bad news. Trouble on the India side of the border had led to the Indian government...

Half-time – The journey east is complete, the journey west awaits

Half-time – The journey east is complete, the journey west awaits

Hi All, Almost 2 years to the day, after I got up at an Escape the City meet up in London, and asked if ‘Anybody fancied going for a drive?’, I find myself in Kuala Lumpur at the end of Leg 3. After 126 days on the road, 19 countries, 14,000 miles, 22,500 kms, Legs 1, 2 & 3, 10 Boris services, 3 borders crossed without the right paperwork, 2 x-rays, and one dodgy wrist, I’ve reached the end point of my journey east....

Are those the Petronas Towers? They sure are!! – Leg 3 is complete!!

Hi All, Boris, Kiwi Ted and I raced into Kuala Lumpur yesterday to complete Leg 3 of The Great Game Expedition in fine style. We made in right on schedule to meet my Dad for his birthday, and watch the All Blacks smash the Aussies 47 – 29 in the Bledisloe Cup rugby test. The third leg of the journey had a little more drama and excitement than I’d expected. Now I’m focussed on preparing to ship Boris to India. The journey...

China Part 1 – Unhappy Campers, Bike Wankers and Butt Spankers

China Part 1 – Unhappy Campers, Bike Wankers and Butt Spankers

My apologies if the following 3 part series on China comes across as petty and spiteful in places. It was a tough section of the trip. Much tougher than I’d anticipated. As a result, it’s only since I’ve left China that I’ve been able to write the story, as I have started to physically, and mentally recover from the trauma of the experience. I’ve not wanted to purposely paint anybody in a bad light. I’ve...

Rest and Recuperation in Laos

Rest and Recuperation in Laos

Hi Everybody, I know I’ve been quiet, so I just wanted to pass on a short message. I crossed over the border from China to Laos 7 days ago. I’ve been resting and recuperating in Luang Namtha ever since. It’s a fantastically laid back place. A large portion of my time has been spent at a great cafe called the Forest Retreat. It just happens to be run by a couple of laided back Kiwi’s. Their amazing western menu and...
