It’s been three weeks since our last ‘Tales from the Road’, and what a three weeks it’s been… We’ve covered almost 2,500km since we last sat down to write in southern Thailand, crossing the length of beguiling Burma (Myanmar) and on to the breath-taking views and spine-rattling roads of north-east India.
Back in 1955 the First Overlanders used their Expedition typewriter to provide irregular updates from the road, dispatched whenever they had a chance to catch up with themselves. 64 years on, and even with a laptop and wifi, it’s still hard to find time to sit still and write!
Thankfully we’ve paused in the beautiful Wildgrass Resort at the edge of the Kaziranga National Park in Assam, one of the world’s most precious biodiversity hotspots. Last night as the sun went down, the Team sat in silent awe, watching elephants bathing and rhinos grazing (while keeping a wary eye out for the bumper population of tigers.) Oxford was even treated to a very unique escort out of the park…
One month in: a recap
We’re now four weeks and 4000km into our journey back to London, and the Flag Off in Singapore on August 25th now feels like a lifetime ago. Thankfully our friends over at JLR Asia Pacific made this wonderful mini-film from the day to keep the memories fresh!
