This trip is entirely self funded but raising funds for the charity “Room to Read” is really important to us. Please, donate whatever you can… a penny, pound, buck, loonie, punt or euro and donate via the link below.


….so ‘Room to Read’ can have your tax back!



Room to Read believes that World Change Starts with Educated Children. We envision a world in which all children can pursue a quality education that enables them to reach their full potential and contribute to their community and the world.

Room to Read seeks to transform the lives of millions of children in developing countries by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education. Working in collaboration with local communities, partner organizations and governments, we develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children, and support girls to complete secondary school with the relevant life skills to succeed in school and beyond.

Room to Read is a fantastic charity, they are financially transparent and have excellent relations within the communities they work with. For more information, please visit their website  at

We’re so grateful for every donation, they really will make a difference to the children supported by Room to Read.

We will be visiting ‘Room to Read’ projects along our route and will be sure to keep you posted on how your money is being spent.

Finally, when our arses get sore, and those hills look insurmountable we’re hoping that the thought of the £/$/E’s promised to us for every little mile will help keep those thighs pounding on.

Disclaimer! If the political situation in Pakistan becomes unstable, for the sake of our safety (and our mother’s blood pressure) we ‘reserve the right’ to alter our route which may even include a short flight. We really hope this doesn’t happen but trust you’ll understand if it does!


Sponsor a country that we are visiting for $500!

In return for your support, you’ll receive your very own ratty postcard as we pass through your chosen country as well as a DVD of professional, high res images from this country. Pete has years of experience in professional travel and wilderness photography. We guarantee some beautiful images along the way!

Countries currently available to sponsor include:

India, Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, Greece, Bosnia, Croatia, Italy, Austria, Germany, Netherlands

    I appreciate your photos very much, and your writing about the roads in India reminds me of something the cricket commentator Brian Johnston once said “I have been to India many times and I still don’t know whether they drive on the right or the left”.
    Good luck with the rest of your trip.
