** INCLUDES EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH CHARLEY BOORMAN **
After chasing their shadows across the world, journeying east from London to New York, actors (and bike fanatics) Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman couldn't shake the travel bug. And after an inspirational UNICEF visit to Africa, they realised their new destination could be nowhere else.
With the Long Way Round team assembled once again and with two new BMWs loaded up for the journey, Ewan and Charley are setting off for a very different challenge - the Long Way Down. On this new adventure they will travel from John O'Groats to South Africa: biking their way down through Scotland and England, then travelling into Europe and further down into Africa. Visiting UNICEF projects on the African continent along their way, they will come face-to-face with spectacular but unforgiving terrain, with rich cultures and unforgettable local characters. Ewan and Charley will test their endurance, biking skills and friendship to the limits on this amazing trip.
Poorly narrated but great story
The book is great and so is the series, but the narrator clearly has no idea what charley and ewen are like,
Listen to it because its a great read but just appreciate that the pair of them are nothing like the way they are narrated.
watched the show and i know what was coming but at the same time i didnt many a time sitting on the train or bus and having a burst of laughter forgeting that i am sitting next to a stranger... so funny.
will listen again and again..5*
