    4.5 out of 5 stars 78

From London to New York, Ewan and Charley chased their shadows through Europe, the Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Mongolia and Russia, across the Pacific to Alaska, then down through Canada and America. But as the miles slipped beneath the tyres of their big BMWs, their troubles started. Exhaustion, injury and accidents tested their strength. Treacherous roads, unpredictable weather and turbulent politics challenged their stamina. They were chased by paparazzi in Kazakhstan, courted by men with very large guns in the Ukraine, hassled by the police, and given bulls' testicles for supper by Mongolian nomads.

This has proven to be a very enjoyable listen. The voices at first was a little unnusual as we all know how Ewan and Charlie sound however you soon get used to it. A really funny journey which I am sure has inspired many a road trip. Definitely worth downloading!
