Book – Going Postal.
A great read.
About Starts with a Pommy (Nathan Millward) visiting his girlfriend in Sydney. He can’t get his visa renewed and doesn’t want to get married to get to stay here. So, she suggests he ride his postie bike home to London. He had originally planned to ride to Australia in the first place but worried his girlfriend might find someone else before his got there. He had two days to leave Sydney if he was to make the boat to East Timor, from Darwin, before his visa expired in about 20 days. Excellent.
