We’ve been overwhelmed with the response to our UK Arrival Party on December 14th at the Folkestone Harbour Arm. It’s going to be the ultimate Christmas Party, with hundreds of Land Rovers both old and new from across the UK and Europe making the journey down to see us arrive on home turf after our long journey from Singapore.
Mało piszę tu o nowych samochodach. Ten jest jednak specjalny. Po pierwsze, nikt go jeszcze nie widział, po drugie, wyjedzie naprzeciw swojemu imiennikowi i dziadkowi, który za kilka dni kończy podróż powrotną z Singapuru do Wielkiej Brytanii.
We’ve successfully completed Stage 2 of our journey (China to Turkey), and are now embarking on the 3rd and final stage bringing Oxford and the team home to the UK. Just over 2,250km to go!
The Last Overland has come a long way since our last dispatch from Nepal – and not just in terms of kilometres covered (although at 5,500km, that was pretty hefty too). As we came up to the half way mark on our journey from Singapore to London, we were expecting the coming three weeks to be our toughest yet, and we were not disappointed.
You’ve heard it here first. The official homecoming party for The Last Overland will be taking place between Folkestone and London on Saturday December 14th! We’ll be revealing more detail soon, but for now please save the date in your diary – particularly if you have a Land Rover.
Team Last Overland has reached the end of Stage One of their journey from Singapore to London. Stage One took them from the F1 Pit Building in Singapore to the border between Nepal and Tibet, China. Here is their report.
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.
We couldn’t have asked for a more extraordinary send-off for The Last Overland Team on Sunday. The convoy that formed behind the 64-year-old Oxford car set a new Singaporean record for the most Land Rovers ever gathered in one place (95!).
