Well I’m a man of my word.  As promised in the blog, here is the first of three videos documenting the transvecto journey.  ”Transvecto One” is a 15 minute sequence of nearly every shot filmed from a GoPro camera mounted on the dashboard of Magda, from London to Sydney.  It’s high definition, so make sure you get the good quality…

£7 for a box of Rice Crispies, I couldn’t believe it! I showed Megan; she passed out right there on the supermarket floor and got run over buy 2 trolleys and a pram.
