Description

AT A SPECIAL LOW PRICE FOR A LIMITED TIME Two girls, three wheels, one mission. If you've ever been to Bangkok you'll have most likely been catapulted through the streets in a tuk tuk, one of the city's ubiquitous three-wheeled taxis. With white knuckles and ringing ears you'll have stepped out at the end and vowed to take a regular taxi next time. But one summer Jo Huxster and Ants Bolingbroke-Kent decided to drive a tuk tuk that little bit further - to Brighton, a mere 12,561 miles away. Their mission: to raise 50 000 for the mental health charity Mind. Tuk Tuk to the Road is the inspirational story of the ultimate road trip - the countries they traverse, the people that help them, the nail-biting border crossings, the extremely friendly policemen...?very detail of their record-breaking tukathon is chronicled in colourful and often hilarious detail. Twelve countries, two continents, one earthquake and the odd snapped accelerator cable later, this is the entertaining, honest, and above all, remarkable story of two girls who proved that with a little bit of determination, anything is possible.
