We’re all familiar with the “hop on hop off” buses that tour around big cities. It seems there’s now a new option coming that’s bigger and better than those that have gone before. Next year, expedition company Adventures Overland is set to launch a new “hop on hop off” bus service that will travel 20,000km from India to England. The vehicle, which will have space for 20 people, is set to cross 18 countries in 70 days and passengers will be able to stop off in cities along the way.

People looking to book the trip will be able to choose if they want to take the entire journey, or one of the four legs (Southeast Asia, China, Central Asia, Europe). If you take the route that begins in Delhi, the bus will travel to Thailand, before going up to China, then onto Russia and European cities such as Warsaw, Prague and Brussels — before finishing in London.

Adventure Overland’s bus route was partly inspired by the Hippie Trail buses that crossed the world in the 50s and 60s. Despite being the “longest bus journey in the world”, guests are bound to be comfortable with features such as business class seats, Wi-Fi, in-seat phone charging points, private lockers and individual entertainment systems with AUX and USB ports. Anyone looking to book the great voyage must be willing to part with a considerable amount of money. Tickets for the journey are priced at £15,300 and the first departure is currently set for May 2021. “The best time to do this journey is between April and June, because that’s when the weather is favorable to start the journey from India through to Myanmar, and to cross the high mountains of China and Kyrgyzstan,” Adventures Overland co -founder Tushar Agarwal told CNN. “There are a lot of people, travelers, who want to experience these overland journeys, but they don’t want to drive.”

We never knew why my father took over storytelling for his three little girls, but we always suspected it was to save us from Sleeping Beauty . Walt Disney’s masterwork hit the big suburban screens in 1959 with a message for girls as vivid as its widescreen Technirama: If you’re pretty enough, a prince will rescue you.

My father invented a series of bedtime stories featuring three princesses who happened to be just our ages and even looked like us. For some reason, the grownups were never around when danger struck. So, night after night, it was up to the three sisters to save the village, which they always managed to do just about the time that one of us fell asleep.

It did occur to us that this village was either highly unfortunate or its adults incredibly clumsy that so much fell to these little girls. We also saw that our parents wanted us to be strong. These girls didn’t need to

be rescued. They were alert, wise, and bold. That was enough.

But how to carry this storyline into life was not obvious. In my early experience, women were just beginning to be admitted to what had been men-only colleges, and teaching jobs followed. I loved to tell my network about the welcome dinner for new graduate students in vast, candlelit Gothic hall. I sat next to the dean of the graduate school, whose first words to me were: “I don’t know why the graduate school is now admitting women. You’ll all just get married, have babies, and your education will be wasted.” After a few days to recover, I began telling friends this story and found their laughter and support encouraging. Soon, I had accumulated many such stories.

Then, one of them hit hard. A colleague I trusted urged me, seriously, to quit teaching, because “If you don’t leave political science, you will lose everything feminine about you.” I laughed. While losing someone else’s idea of femininity might have seemed a great loss, losing weakness surely was not! The power of that promise supported me. I taught political science for seven more years with a great sense of appreciation for the opportunity, until taking up journalism, which I loved more.

Still waiting for a prince? Be one.
