Description

There’s popping out for a quick pint, and then there’s this – a gloriously preposterous 27,000 mile journey across 25 countries to grab a beer in pubs (bars) at opposite ends of the world. We’re talking an epic adventure, from an abandoned Soviet mine 700 miles from the North Pole, to a remote pub at South America’s southernmost tip. A journey undertaken in a TVR sports car, a car that many might consider untrustworthy just to drive to the shops.

The journey packed a lot into its eight months. From braving the sheer drops of Bolivia’s Death Road, to drag racing the locals in Texas. From roaring across flooded salt flats, to sailing the straits of Magellan. From the highs of the planet’s best driving roads, to the lows of life in No-Man’s-Land, trapped between borders by red tape and bureaucracy. And from looking out for Polar Bears in the High Arctic, to dodging penguins in Tierra del Fuego. The story of the Pub2Pub Expedition is an inspirational account of where your dreams can take you if only you believe in them.

Chronicling the epic journey made by Ben Coombs in his TVR Chimaera, Pub2Pub is both an exciting adventure and a fascinating snapshot of the life and culture of the countries that he drove through.

Ben’s previous exploits include crossing Africa in a Porsche, driving to the far side of Asia in a Corvette, and heading to Mongolia in a plucky little Mini. Put simply, when it comes to dreaming up unusual road trips, and then making them happen, there’s nobody more experienced. Ben has written about many of his adventures, has published one other book, and written articles for various notable websites, blogs, newspapers and magazines.
