Driving from Bangladesh to England in a classic Rolls Royce
While the start of their adventure is still a few months off, the couple are making preparations for what will likely be a fantastic journey. They will be shipping their car to Chittagong, Bangladesh, where they will set out to drive through Bhutan, Nepal, and India before arriving at the Arabian Sea. From there, they'll board a ship bound for Iran, where they'll once again hit the open road, crossing into Turkey and eventually Europe, before returning back to the U.K.
Intrigued by this unique road trip, an independent film company hopes to make a documentary of Rupert and Jan's journey. Rover Films is currently seeking funding for the project, and have already tentatively named their film A Sense of Adventure. You can check out the teaser trailer for it below.
Reading about this story left me to wondering. If you could take any road trip in any vehicle, where would you go and what would you drive? For me personally, I'd love to go from Cairo, Egypt to Cape Town, South Africa, in a classic Land Rover Defender. Say circa 1985 or so.
How about you?
