Rallies & Remarkable Road Trips

Rallies & Remarkable Road Trips

If Charles Lamb were to live in modern times, he would amend his famous quote to say, “the automobile has entered my soul”. It clogs up our cities, sprays carbon into our lungs, turns our environs into a dreadful cacophony of blaring horns, screeching tyres and roaring engines. Yet, few modern inventions have shrunk the planet as the motor car has. Its seductive allure is difficult to resist.

Come with me as I take you on a pleasure drive across 24 countries. This page contains only those trips in which I drove myself. Hundreds of other road trips done on taxis are listed elsewhere.

Four international motor rallies covering 14 countries, a desert rally through the Thar desert in Rajasthan, a cross-country drive from Delhi to Bangalore, transnational drives from Singapore to Cameron Highlands in Malaysia, Bangkok to Chiangmai in Thailand, a road trip along the southeastern coast of Australia from Sydney all the way to the Great Ocean Road, a wonder drive through the scenic landscape of South Island in New Zealand, a coastal drive in Ireland and a 4×4 adventure (with tents and fridge and the works) through Gondwanaland – Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe, the motorcar has given me many weeks of pure pleasure. Hop in and enjoy the drive..
