Have you ever wanted to take an epic road trip that covered thousands of miles and offered you an opportunity to truly explore the region you were traveling through? That’s exactly what Rupert Grey hopes to do in September, when he and his wife will set out to drive from Bangladesh back to their home in England. But Rupert doesn’t just want to just go on a road trip, he wants to do it in style. Which is why he is making the journey in his classic 1936 Rolls Royce.
Independent film company Rover Films is hoping to make a documentary of the drive, following Rupert and his wife out of Bangladesh, into the Himalaya, and westward along the Arabian Sea, through Iran and Turkey, and beyond. You can check out the trailer for the film below, and if you feel inclined, donate to the cause for getting this movie made. Rover has set up a Kickstarter page to take donations to help fund the project, which looks like it should be a good one. I mean, where exactly do you find parts for a 1936 Rolls Royce while rolling through the Himalaya?
This looks like a fantastic travel experience, and as I’ve mentioned before, I’d love to do a long distance, overland road trip like this with friends. My road trip of choice would be Cairo to Cape Town, but his looks like a great route as well. I hope the gang over at Rover get the opportunity to make their film!
