‘Hilarious new book’ and ‘This fun and light-hearted tale of a far from usual road trip is well worth a read’.(The Daily Express)
'An inspiring story told with lashings of energy and humour.'(Ranulph Fiennes)
'This is the trip I would take if I were younger, braver and lightly but certifiably out of my mind.'(Bill Bryson)
'What do you do after leaving university? Get a boring office job – or drive a black cab 43,000 miles around the world? Ernest Hemingway said always do sober what you said you’d do drunk. These lads did and raised 20 K whilst smashing two world records. Brilliant.'(Andy Parsons)
'High adventure filled with hilarity and mischief – it goes to show what can happen when you combine some serious guts and a daft idea.'(Levison Wood) See all Product description

I could empathize with so many of their experiences and had the feeling that there was some special magic surrounding these boys that only comes when you take a path with heart, with nothing more of an agenda than to enrich your lives and have a bloody good adventure along the way, which miraculously they all managed to live through to tell the tale.
An amazing feat and thanks for sharing. On so many occasions I could visualize their experiences as its so well written and definitely feel like I was an armchair passenger for much of the way. I hope they have all gone on to fulfilling professions and that their 'everything will be alright' attitude keeps them through any obstacles they encounter in the future.
Written in a warm, humorous and engaging style, reading this book is like listening to your mates anecdotes in the pub! It is an extremely enjoyable read - I whizzed through it as I couldn't wait to hear about each and every country visited, the people met and crazy episodes encountered! Many incredible and outrageous tales! I was genuinely gutted as it was nearing the end as I wanted the adventure to go on and on!
I absolutely loved this book and would highly recommend it. What these lads achieved was an incredible feat, and the book conveys their adventures is an extremely engaging and east-to-read manner, so I urge you to read it now!
