Beijing to Bedford

Published on 08 July 2019

Want to travel all around the world? Then Global Travel Experts of Ram Yard, Castle Quay are the ones to see. 

Managing Director Meherwan Bozorgi is helping the charity efforts of a local lady Jane Morris and her daughter Lizzie Frost who are travelling from Beijing to Bedford by train. They have paid for their own travel, but are hoping to gather some sponsorship for the Bedford MS Therapy Centre.

Said Meherwan: “We offered some free advice and we are delighted to see the charity idea seems to be taking off. We’re always glad to help people with their exciting adventures.”

Mum Jane is a long time sufferer from MS: Ten years ago I wouldn’t have been able to even think about such a journey. Now, thanks to new treatments and particularly the help and care from the MS Therapy Centre Beds and Northants, I’m ready to take part in this incredible journey.

“We will climb into a train in Beijing on the 23rd of July 2019 and, 5,000 miles, 10 countries and 23 days later, alight at our home station, Bedford. 

"The amazing trip will take us across China into Mongolia, before we join the famous Trans Siberian Railway to cross the vast Russian Steppes.

"From the Ural Mountains, we head for Moscow via St Petersburg; we then journey through Belarus, Poland, Germany, Belgium and France where we cross the Channel before the home leg to Bedford".
