About this blog

This blog is the story of Jac & Alex’s epic journey around the world in their Land Rover.  We plan to start in the UK in August 2016 in our Expedition fitted out 110 Defender and drive back to New Zealand – the long way round!

By rough calculation (hello Google Maps), our route is over 30,000 km’s of driving and a couple of boats.  A few of our friends and family mad enough to believe in what we are doing (bless you) will join us on the way for various legs.

We are really excited about the trip – it will be challenging and one hell of an adventure.  There’s a bit to learn, and some things to work out on the way, but we’ll get there!  So follow us on our journey and perhaps it will inspire you to go and do something that you never really thought you’d do.

“You’re off to great places.  Today is your day.  Your mountain is waiting so get on your way”

Don’t wait up, we could be some time…

Happy travels.

Alex & Jacqui.
