“I just wanted to get as many interesting people to as many interesting places as possible”.

It was whilst working in computing that Max White decided to get out from behind his desk and explore the world. Short on funds, he bought one car for £75, and another for £150, and put out an appeal for like-minded souls.

“The idea was to buy two cars and see how far east we could get,” says Max about his project, Global Convoy. “We ended up doing a full lap of the planet!”

It was a plan that paid off spectacularly well, as Max’s convoy snaked through Europe, Russia, Asia and the Americas, picking up new members (and lifelong friends) along the way.
