We proudly announce that the Mumbai Xpress 2015 has been featured as the cover story in the September issue of Etihad Airways’ inflight magazine!`
In “Driven to Distraction – The Mighty Rickshaw Challenge”, Jamie Lafferty, a Scottish writer and photographer, writes about his experiences from this year’s rally, where he got to get down and dirty in his own rickshaw as part of team Laffmo Travel Incorporated. His fellow team member Katy Morrison provided the magazine with stunning pictures of their Indian adventure.
Jamie talks about how the rally’s participants formed close bonds during the two weeks of the crazy race, sharing their stories with each other after a long day rattling about India’s pothole laden streets. He not only shows the extreme challenges the teams had to face amidst the chaos of India, but he also depicts the connections with the locals, who are always willing to give a helping hand, the constantly changing landscape and the rewarding charity work all teams were involved in. Once more it becomes clears, why Lonely Planet has named the Rickshaw Challenge as one of the world’s 10 greatest adventures!
