Father and daughter duo Hannah and Adam Vernon are travelling from Bosnia to Britain in just one week, with the aim of raising 2,000 in aid of Red Nose Day and Comic Relief.
The pair will make the trip in an old 1979 Zastava 750SC car covering an estimated distance of 2400 Kilometres (1500 miles) and passing through 12 countries. Starting in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the journey will continue to Croatia and Slovenia. Next, Adam and Hannah travel through Italy, followed by Austria, Liechtenstein, and Switzerland. Then its onto Germany, Luxembourg and Belgium with the last leg of their travels taking them through France, and finally, to England.
While Adam will be driving the car from country to country, Hannah will fly out to Sarajevo and be the navigator and co-pilot on this epic journey. By working together, they hope to accomplish their adventure in a straight-ish line on the map from start to finish and hopefully collect each countrys national flag on the way.
Hannah Vernon is a PR consultant in the UK and used to live with her parents in Kirdford in West Sussex, but recently moved to Bognor Regis with her partner. Adam, too, is no stranger to travelling and hard work as he has spent the last year working on a European project introducing entrepreneurial learning to schools in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
There will be a video and photos diary capturing the progression of their fundraising adventure starting the moment they set off from Bosnia to the exhausting end in Britain. The journey will begin in Sarajevo on Saturday 26th February 2011.
