About the Course
This is the story of a journey made in the 1970s that would be nigh on impossible in today's political climate. It accounts the escapades of four naive young men travelling in a 21 year-old Land Rover (Sweaty Betty). On a shoestring budget they travelled through Europe in mid-winter then journeyed through the Middle East, Far East, Australia and beyond. It was an era before mobile phones, sat-nav, the internet or social media; their only guide was a paper map.
