Patrick and Colleen Edwards set off to drive from Sydney to London. The idea
was to drive across Australia to Darwin, take a ferry to East Timor and
inter-island ferries through Indonesia to Singapore and then drive overland
from Singapore through Malaysia, Thailand Laos and China. They would drive on the
Karakorum Highway over the Himalayas from China to Pakistan and on through Iran
and Turkey, then across Europe to England.
always go according to plan and they had plenty of adventures along the way. The
journey from Singapore to London took six months! Some highlights:
They were robbed in Australia
Offered heroin in Laos
Met the most honest man in China
Arrested in Pakistan
interrogation by an Iranian immigration official
