Asian overland, London to Kathmandu 1978 Part 2

18/05/2019

Top Deck Travel an Australian, London based travel company ran overland tours from London to Sydney vice versa from 1975 to 1995. They still operate as one of the leading European Tour companies. This particular tour was recorded on film for promotional purposes. Two buses were involved, Lemming driven by Blue Ramsay and couriered by Adrian Campbell. Blue had completed this tour numerous times and it was Adrian’s first. The second bus Snot was driven by Trevor Carroll and couriered by Alan Kenny. This was Trevor’s 3rd overland and Al’s second. 1978 was a hazardous period for Asian Overland travel, Iraq was refusing to issue visa’s, the Iranian revolution was in full swing as was the repercussions of Afghanistan’s Coup and it’s aftermath.
