In 1973, full of enthusiasm and naivety, ten young students seeking an adventure during their summer holidays get together to journey overland to India. No matter how well travelled they thought they were in Europe, they were totally unprepared for the trials and tribulations ahead. They were introduced to new cultures and customs in the countries they passed through, and were received with overwhelming hospitality for the most part with only the odd scary encounter. They experienced more hold ups and hitches than they had thought possible, their progress impeded by landslides, military coups, illness and the simple fact that time means little to most people once you cross the Bosphorus Strait that separates Europe from Asia. On top of all this, communication in 1973 was a very different 'ball game' to what it is today, which made things much more challenging and more exciting.

Author Biography

In the 1990s she moved to Monmouthshire where she worked in a local school co-ordinating the D of E Scheme and organising school expeditions. She has three grown up children. Alex has now retired and continues to reside in Monmouthshire where she shares life with her partner, Mike. When they are not away on another adventure they are looking after a menagerie of chickens, sheep, cats and pigs.
