British couple completes Around-the-World roadtrip
During the incredible roadtrip, the Herdman’s traveled on awful roads, many of which with no tarmac, climbing to 10,000 feet on several occasions and yet only had $125 spent on repairs! The trip, which Geoffrey describes as a 'wrinkly gap year' took 16 months.
They also did the roadtrip in a bit of an old car, a 1956 Bristol. Only 42 of these cars were made, probably making spare parts hard to come by.
As Geoffrey proudly states “the evidence speaks for itself - the Bristol 405 Drophead is the ideal touring car”. I guess it is if the Herdman's drove it around-the-world!
The Herdman's incredible roadtrip involved driving up the east coast of North America to Halifax before crossing Canada and then heading south down the west coast. After a couple of months in South America, they headed to Australia before the car was shipped back via Turkey for the drive home.
