September 1st 2012 sees us (2 brothers) setting off, from London, to begin a world record journey on a Tuk Tuk (Thai 3 wheeled Taxi). This is the longest journey ever attempted by one of these vehicles and will take in the seven modern wonders of the world and covering 4 continents. Taking in world heritage sites and other sites of interest on the journey.

Although extensively travelled, we have not lived all over the world and therefore we would appreciate any advice on what to see / avoid, which local events / festivals will be taking place on our route. We would also appreciate moral support by people waving, saying hello and joining in the excitement as we pass along the way.

We are undertaking this journey to show that that the world is, indeed, a small place, full of wonder and adventure! No matter where we come from, we have more in common than we realise. In addition it will raise funds for 2 charities that are very close to our hearts.

We would really appreciate any helpful tips and advice from anywhere you live or have travelled that will help us to achieve this world record.

Try and avoid steep hills and mountains as the tuk-tuk does not do well on them, and take some ear plugs as they are very noisy.
