Some time last year I got a free DVD with my regular motorbike magazine, BIKE. The DVD was episode one of Long Way Round, in which Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman set off from London on two BMW R1150 GS Adventure bikes on a 20, 000 mile journey to New York, via Europe, Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Siberia, Alaska and Canada.At the time I got the DVD I wasn’t too interested and I didn’t have the time to watch it.

Last night I finally, after about six months, got around to watching it. I must say that I wasn’t too excited at the prospect of watching it but that is the last DVD in my collection that I haven’t watch (apart from Bikini Drive-In – but I wasn’t in the mood for that). Half way through the DVD and I was wanting to be there, going on that journey. By the end of the DVD I was so hooked on it I also watched the extra “unseen” footage. In fact, I also just gone and bought the full box-set on Amazon.

Now all I need to do I try and not watch it until I move into my new flat (more on that soon) so that I can watch it on my lovely 50″ TV.
