In 2005, I headed off on the first of what resulted in being many road-trips. The challenge this first time was:
- to buy a shit car,
- to stop it breaking down every 5 minutes and ready it for a 10,000 mile off road epic
- to drive it from Hyde Park in London, to Ulan Bataar in Mongolia, by any route
- to choose a stupid non-direct route.
And so, off I went with friend Ben and new friends to be Chris, Dave, Mark and James – to Mongolia, via the Baltic States, Russia (twice), Kazakhstan (twice), Kyrgystan and Monglia.
It was truly epic.
Over the next few weeks I’m releasing a series of short videos (about 10) that together tell the story of the trip. They are quite old now, and the quality is a bit iffy – so I’d recommend not watching full screen (unless you want to have a fit!)
