Merry Christmas Everyone!


It’s been an incredible year for The Odyssey! It all started (well actually, it nearly didn’t…Graham missed his first bus!) on the 1st January 2009 near the border of Argentina and Paraguay, which – as I write this – was 358 days ago (it’s Christmas Eve here in England). Since then, we’ve seen Graham travel through 129 countries – by surface – I’m tired even thinking about the journey! It’s been an amazing, eventful and sometimes arduous journey so far, between having been arrested 3 times, endured great boat journeys across great oceans, sleeping on hard floors and in tired rooms, and still managing to maintain a rather chipper disposition without getting ill once and whilst missing the love of his life, Mandy – and he’s a ginger! How does he do it?!

The time is right to say… Thank you : Gracias : Merci : Obrigado : Spasiba : Diolch : Danke : Dankie : Na Som : Tak : Xie Xie : Akpé : Abarka : Toda : Go Raibh Maith Agat : Grazie : Arigato : Aguije…for tuning into Graham’s amazing adventure across 2009. It’s been a pleasure to have you on board, and I hope you’ll continue to follow him until the end of his journey in 2010.

If you haven’t already done so, please, please, please give what you can to Graham’s charity of choice, WaterAid. It’s a truly great cause.

May you have a wonderful Christmas 2009, and a safe and prosperous 2010.

    Thanks to everyone who has taken part in The Odyssey this year. I really, really appreciate all the support I’ve had off my family, friends and strangers on the road. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.

    The TV show will be on the BBC sometime in 2010, but before then I’m planning to take YouTube by storm in 2010 as I travel from Egypt all the way to New Zealand. Oooooh January 1st 2010… FREEDOM FOR THE ODYSSEY DAY!! Can’t WAIT!
