From yaks to Yugos, trucks to trawlers and ferries to fruit boats, no mode of moving transport is overlooked as Charley negotiates his way through 25 countries and over 20,000 miles.

This is an exhilarating story uncovering a vast array of exciting vehicles that in turn unleashes the flavour of each nation visited. A must-watch for all.
