Publisher's Summary

In their book Drive Nacho Drive, Brad and Sheena Van Orden traded the American Dream for the open road, and set off in their temperamental 1984 VW van named "Nacho." After 13 months of humorous and sometimes demoralizing misadventures along the Pan-American Highway, our intrepid subjects eventually arrived at the southernmost town in the world in Tierra del Fuego. This is where 927 Days of Summer picks up the trail. After shipping Nacho from Argentina to Malaysia on a container ship, Brad and Sheena resume their journey, this time with the ambitious goal of driving all the way around the world. When they roll out of the shipping container onto Malaysian soil, their odometer turns over to 300,000 miles. Is Nacho really up for the brutal journey ahead? This hilarious and harrowing tale cuts through the sweltering jungles of Southeast Asia to the buzzing hornet's nest of India, from the remote Nepalese Himalayas to the stony hills of Anatolia, on to the Sahara Desert of Africa, through Europe and beyond. Whether dodging rickshaws on crater-filled roads, defying Maoist rebels on cliff-hanging Himalayan tracks, getting hopelessly stuck in the desert on the Pakistani border, or becoming the subjects of an international missing persons' case in the remote mountains of Laos, there is never a dull moment in 927 Days of Summer. Come along as a diverse cast of characters guides our determined travelers through a world of unfolding landscapes and cultures on the road trip to end all road trips, and then ask yourself: can you really just go home, unpack, and eat a sandwich?

The best audio books I've listened too!!

I actually listened to this book before Drive Nacho Drive. I can honestly say these are the best audio books I have listened too. EVER!!

I listened to them both within a week. Brad has a very good way of telling a story. Both in what he's written and how he reads it.

You can tell these are read by someone pasionate about the story and not just a paid narrator reading another book. For this reason I generally struggle with audio books.

On another note I have found there story inspiring. Genuinely! I did some travelling 7 years ago and these books have reignited a need to travel again in some way.

later in the year I'm going to Greece to compete in my sport.

I'm now planning on driving there from the UK :-)
