Classic Journeys: Kathmandu to London

This was once one of the great overland journeys for under 35s - travelling in converted regional English double decker buses. A "once in a lifetime" adventure. We travelled in 1985 in a convoy of two buses - Snot and Boogie. In those early days you could travel with Top Deck all the way from Sydney to London.

This class will be delivered online via the online platform Zoom. Enrolling students need to ensure they have an email, a reliable internet connection, microphone/speakers and access to a tablet, smartphone or computer.
