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.

Calais

Calais, France's busiest passenger port with a population of approximately 80,000 and ferry business dominating this town. Badly bombed during World War II, there is very little to see here.
Yes, we're on our way! On schedule, we left this morning at 08.30 and after some emotional goodbyes caught the 12.15 ferry from Dover. Briefly stopping in Calais for essential cheese and wine supplies we have headed to a campsite for the night. More to follow ...

Wow. Not only are you embarking on a great adventure, you are quite literally one step ahead of the game. I think that you should utilise your time travelling abilities. I wish that I could experience 5th June 2006 today (4th June 2006).

Have a good trip, or have you already finished?
