Grand Trunk Road

Writer Steve Casimiro says, "Rupert Grey is making a run at The World's Most Interesting Man."

The World adventurer and photographer Grey's epic journey through India with his wife Jan in a 1936 Barker bodied 25/30 Rolls-Royce limousine will soon be available for all to see.

"India is another country. They do things differently there..."

Plying the Bramaputra river on a narrow boat:

Crossing through rivers:

With the wind in their faces:

Passing the battlements of Mahanasar Castle at dawn.

Then a long three week delay at Dhaka:

And causing a stir wherever they go....

Filmmaker Oliver McGarvey recorded the adventure and is piecing together his movie 'Grand Trunk Road'.

All they need is a little help with donations to complete the production, so McGarvey is requesting that we 'get involved' by going to his site :
