Our destination maybe Sydney but our first stop will be the beautiful and historic Bodiam castle in Surrey, England for a black tie ball to toast what lies ahead in the coming months.

This last week, Malvern and a lot of the UK has been subject to a little heat wave which has made our home town look absolutely transcendent, even if the pollen count has done a number on my hayfever.

We’ve spent the time accumulating all of our necessary equipment, attempting to predict the challenges that lie ahead, and trying to make our lives as convenient as possible on the road. Naturally this includes the Haynes manual for Renault Clios, which is bound to come in handy.

We have also finally covered our car in the logos of our beloved sponsors from the Kickstarter campaign and I think you can agree it really is starting to look ready for a charity drive. Thanks again to all of our sponsors.

Our journey began at a cheap and cheerful 8am, and we’re now heading to meet the other Mongol Ralliers in the castle before we head off into the unknown.

Cross your fingers for us.
