A drive from India to London in 49 days with a convoy of 13 cars, covering 18 countries sure feels adventurous and yet unachievable at the same time. However, travel enthusiasts and driving expedition organisers Tushar Agarwal and Sanjay Madan have achieved this seemingly impossible feat. Sharing their experience of their ‘‘Road to London 2017”, the duo, in conversation with Guardian 20, shared their experiences of a journey that was filled with challenges.
In total, 27 participants were on this expedition, and the organisers said that completing this epic journey was the most rewarding and exhilarating experience of their lives, adding that they are already looking forward to doing this all over again next year.
“Road to London 2017” journey kicked off from Imphal on 17 April and the atmosphere on flag-off day was electrifying. The trip was inaugurated by Deputy Chief Minister of Manipur, Yumnam Joykumar Singh, and President of Western Indian Automobile Association, Nitin Dossa.
The convoy drove through hilly terrains and gravel roads to reach Moreh, the last town on the Indian side, before crossing over to Myanmar, the first international border crossing of the expedition.
