Here’s their story….
Faced with the science of climate change, Dizraeli (not what his mum calls him) has vowed not to fly. All good, until he is offered a golden opportunity to perform in Egypt. After a brief struggle with the devil on his left shoulder, Rowan decides to stick to his principles, exchange quick convenience and aeroplane food for a continent-sized slice of chaos, and go overland. Accompanied by documentary photographer/filmmaker Billy Macrae, he has two weeks and £500 to get to Cairo. The pair will travel through Central and Eastern Europe, then on to Turkey, Syria, Israel and Palestine. Crossing countless borders and barriers, they will broadcast their journey to the world: as a daily blog, a weekly video diary and finally, a documentary film accompanied by a full-length album.
If Dizraeli doesn’t make it to Cairo in time for the show, he will lose his entire budget for the trip. The risk is very real: the Middle East is a notoriously sticky area for border crossings, and there is a distinct possibility that Diz and Billy will be refused entry at some point along the way. One thing is certain, though, whatever happens: an adventure awaits.
We’re facing real problems.
We want UnPlaned to be an inspiration for those finding solutions.
