I have set myself a pretty big challenge on a small budget. I plan to take 26 days to travel from Budapest and ultimately touch the Caspian Sea. I will hitch-hike much of this distance. This may not be plausible in such a short time, but I'm going to give it a good go. (Please see map on my intended journey)
Today I was questioned why I haven't done this as a charity event, and I didn't have an answer. For this reason I have chosen to raise money for the Gurkha Welfare Trust. It is a charity to support the superhuman Gurhkas who have served, and continue to serve, for the British army. Unfortunately many live in poverty.

I will continue to document my travels at www.toddthornback.wordpress.com
any donation will be gratefully received.
