In this comical travel memoir, Mark sets out to traverse from Sydney to London without flying.
His extraordinary overland journey from Australia to the UK takes him through three continents and eighteen countries, via famed cities like Singapore, Bangkok, Istanbul, Prague, and Berlin; and obscure locales like Coober Pedy, Maha Salakham, Aktau, Sheki, and Guca.
Follow him as he catches a cargo ship across the Indian Ocean, runs a gauntlet of Chinese tanks and terrorists, has beers with a naked ex-Soviet Officer in Kazakhstan, attends a Serbian trumpet festival, and eats magic mushrooms for breakfast in the Netherlands.
As he trots across the globe, he tells it like it is, with off-kilter opinions and left-field humour. You’ll laugh as you learn about the world and what it takes to travel it.
