About Overland By Bus London to Bombay 1966 :

This journey can’t be done today. The diary and letters of a 25-year-old tells her journey by bus across Europe and Asia to Bombay, on a shoestring budget.

Her adventures of attempted kidnap in Syria; abduction and almost sold in Baghdad; armed guards and cholera quarantine in Iraq desert; hostility and stoning at the Afghan border.

Share in her journey of a lifetime with descriptions and impressions of people and places passed.

What was it like travelling together so far for so long?

Overland By Bus London to Bombay 1966 was self-published on KDP as a result of attending a Pen to Print online course.

This book is the first part of her journey and is number one in the ‘Share My Journey‘ series.

Elizabeth Freeman is a poet and writer and likes to paint as a hobby. She also researches family and social history.
