A great adventure story of two girls who decided to travel from Bangkok to Brighton in a Tuk-Tuk. We follow the story from first ideas through to all their perilous, humorous and fun-packed travels. The girls did it to raise money for the charity Mind and they certainly earned every penny they raised. An inspiring read.

Synopsis

Tuk-Tuk to the Road by Antonia Bolingbroke-Kent and Joanna Huxster

The inspirational tale of two girls' madcap overland adventure, driving a bright pink tuk-tuk from Bankok to Brighton.

Inspired by their personal experiences of mental health issues, they set out to raise £50 000 for Mind - and they're nearly there! From armed guards in Laos to landslides in China to marriage proposals in Russia, Tuk-Tuk to the Road is the complete story of their Thelma and Louise style odyssey. Includes stunning photography.

A percentage of the proceeds will be donated to Mind.

`What a brave and marvellous adventure!
