Ladies and Gentlemen!
So if you don’t already know myself and Heather are travelling the length of India on a mighty 7 horsepower glorified lawnmower!! The one, the only ‘TUK TUK!!!’
We are the happy clapper community sunshine band and we are on the road again!!
Travelling 3500kms up mountains, down valleys through beautiful country-sides and cities with questionable health & safety regulations!!
So the Adventure:
Fly to New Delhi, travel via India’s beautiful and majestic rail network for 18hours!!! To Jaisalmer, the start line!! Where we will collect a very basic toolbox and the keys to our glorified lawnmower!!
From there we will head south(ish!) for 3500kms via places we cannot pronounce, eating foods we wish we hadn’t!! until we get to Cochin, south India
click to watch a little rickshaw run video!! ;)
There will be no route, no back-up and no way of knowing whether we're going to make it! We will most certainly get lost, break down, catch 'Delhi belly' and hopefully help save a bit of the world whilst doing it with your generosity.
This trip is in the name of charity, so please give generously, every penny you pledge will go to charity
