“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” –Mark Jenkins

The Rough Idea!
Well the rough idea so far is to board the ferry at Newhaven 5th May 9:30am and drive approximately 6,000 miles round the outside of Europe to arrive in Northern Cyprus by October-ish. Then we have a two month tour of the east coast of Australia throughout December and January, stopping off for a couple of days in Hong Kong on the return journey. We will then collect Bee again in Cyprus, and drive her back through the middle of Europe - About 10,000 miles in total excluding Australia! Of course it could (and probably will) all change again a few times over the coming days and no doubt change again as we get going. We hear books are running for pinpointing Bee's first breakdown - shame on you! - I have faith...... but one hope I hold on to, is that it should be somewhere sunnier and warmer than here!
