humyum, I cam across this post while browsing the forum. Seems like you have not updated anything here for a long time. Well, I am writing to let you know your dreams and mine are very similar, just separated by two years.

I did my Masters in Automotive at Loughborough and now live in Coventry. I spent a whole year in UK going around on foot and public transport dreaming of owning a car. I have never driven around in India before except on few occasional chauffeur duties for drunk friends!! I got a job and the dream to finally own a car started turning into an itch, got myself a Honda Civic. The process of choosing a regular hatch over a roadster was the most traumatic experience ever, the realisation that even when you can afford a S2000, you have to buy a regular car because there are other "important" things to take care of with that money. I am having a great time behind the wheel, slowly getting confident on the road, but fulfilling one distant dream always leads to another. I want to drive from London to Mumbai, might sound insane and amateurish coming from a guy who has done around 3k miles in his entire life. But that's something I want to do, the biggest hindrance as you pointed out being the financial aspect. I am not sure if I will ever realise this dream, but I will keep working towards it, maybe some day I will post my travelogue on Team-BHP

It will be great to hear what happened with your dream, if its already on T-BHP, please share the link.

Thanks Babu . Machine, honestly its not the best choice for a trip like this with 4 guys and their luggage in it . Our car had the least ground clearance and if we had driven faster then the vehicle would have fallen apart . But yes there can be worse choices.
I want to upload pics and some text on the whole experience . Just landed yesterday , need to start working on it .

Thank you Selfdrive , yea there are lot of pics and a lot of memories back of my mind and some notes . The shear volume is the problem now . Need to get all the pics sorted according to countries and then start a new log .
