Those of you of the Green persuasion can now take a bus from London to Sydney. Well I'm not sure how "green" driving a bus full of people and supplies half way around the world on a twelve week journey can be. However "Ozbus" founder Mark Creasey said the journey – which costs £3750 – is an environmentally friendly way to cross the globe. Mark went on to say: “Folks that are signing up are not necessarily there for the destination, but for the experience and the people.”
Another Ozbus is planned to leave at the end of the month and seven more have been lined up for next year. You can also get a return trip, but at £7500 for a five and a half month journey, I don't think the airlines are panicking too much. Green it may be, but practical it ain't.
