In 2004, Charley Boorman and Ewan McGregor rode around the world on two motorcycles. Their trip was filmed and
turned into a TV travel documentary called Long Way Round. A few years later, the two friends set off on their
motorcycles again, this time riding from the northern most tip of Scotland in the UK to Cape Town in South Africa. This
trip was made into another documentary called Long Way Down.
Charley Boormans latest travel adventure sees him travel from Ireland to Sydney, Australia, trying to use as many
different forms of transportation as possible, except flying. He begins the trip at his fathers house in Ireland. From
there, he rides by motorcycle up to Dublin. He crosses the Irish Sea to England on a fishing trawler. England sees a
variety of modes, including driving a double-decker bus and sailing a small yacht across the Channel to France. In all,
he uses more than one hundred forms of transportation, including container ships, dugout canoes, elephants, a solar
car, wakeboarding, and even a Yak! Accompanied by Russ Malkin and cameraman Paul Mungo Mungeam, Charley
travels through twenty-five countries and over 32,000 kilometers. The entire experience was filmed and made into a
documentary, Ireland to Sydney: by any means. So, whats next for Charley Boorman? Hes already done the Dakar
Rally as well as his two trips with Ewan McGregor so whats left?!
