ozbus.jpgAre you planning to travel from the UK to Australia but feel bad about the 1.9 tonnes of CO2 that your flight is going to be spewing out? Why not take the scenic route and go by bus? From London to Sydney will take you 12 weeks and cost you £3750 with OzBus. It’s all organised, so you just need to shell out and turn up for the epic adventure across 10,000 miles and 20 countries. Be prepared to participate and make some good friends.

The inaugural trip arrived in Sydney on the 9th of December. The next bus departs London on the 10th of February if you want to be on it.

Ok.. and how much CO2 do you save by going overland? Answer – not a lot.

Is this for real? I’d love to know the route for this. Does it still go?

Plant some trees and take the trip anyway, it sounds awesome.

Absolutely for real Annie. Joe’s point is probably quite valid, but it would be an amazing adventure, and Oz-bus does take responsible tourism pretty seriously from the sounds of things. I’d love to hear from someone who’s done this trip.

Check out this map for the routes. http://www.oz-bus.com/map.aspx
