    So it turns out filming your RTW trip isn’t a relatively new idea.

    In 1932, 23-year-old Robert Fulton Jnr set off on a 40,000-mile solo motorcyle trek from London to Japan. His incredible footage of the journey is one of a selection of films being show at The Adventure Travel Film Festival (17-20 Aug). It captures a Middle East still under British rule, India under the Raj and pre-communist China, all before the days of telephones, proper infrastructure or mass tourism – and when some parts of his map were still marked ‘unsurveyed, unknown’

    • This is an edited extract from the film. The full length film will be showing at The Adventure Travel Film Festival, Sherborne Dorset, 17-20 August
