Disclaimer: Due to the number of comments that have been received it has been felt necessary to clarify that this trip is in no way based on "The Long Way Round" which the authors of the trip were not aware and nor was it first broadcast of at the time at which this trip was drunkenly conceived. The authors of this trip would like to distinguish their intended trip from the journey undertaken in "The Long Way Round" in that unlike Charlie Borman and Ewan McGregor they are not experienced riders (they have both only been riding motorbikes for just over one year), they are not receiving sponsorship and they will not have a support crew with them at any point on the journey. Just to avoid any further confusion it has been thought that it would be helpful to point out that Tom Horovitch and Peter Caley are both fictional characters and are not famous film stars.

London

We're in London and this is the first travel diary entry. London - a small settlement in the United Kingdom, a country slightly smaller than Oregon Source: CIA World Factbook. It's so good here that we've stayed for many years (Tom all his life in fact)! To be honest, we haven't set off on our travels yet. We are currently busy formulating an exit plan which involves among other things: studying the route; learning a bit of basic mechanics; buying provisions from the local merchants; and having to work hard at the day jobs as lawyers for the privilege. The view you are looking at is out of a window in Tate Modern (a London art gallery), looking north across the River Thames. Find us on the map.

Thank you very much for your kind offer to look after Tom's cat. Unfortunately I think he may be a bit too much of a handful for you and he's not house trained. I'm considering selling him to The Dr Dolittle Centre for Animal Research or failing that, putting him down. Thank you also for leaving the first human comment on this site.

Uhm - is tom's cat still around ??? I am seriously thinking of calling RSCPA. It can't be good for a cat to live under such serious threat.

Lizze, thanks to you, Tom is so scared about the prospect of you bitching about him on your Blog that I now live in five star luxury. I do like the sound of living with you while Tom is away so perhaps we can revisit this option closer to the time.

LOL - oh good, glad I could be of help to improve your situation, Tom's cat

Sure let see what happens closer to the time of Tom’s departure, unless I find out where you are and cat-nap you.

In the meantime, I will eagerly wait for your next post ...
