About The Book

Only go home when you’re half mad, half dead, or both.

It’s 1987, and Mark Giblin has just discovered the perfect escape from the brawling pubs and concrete towers of Thatcher’s Britain.
India: mountains, beaches, chaotic, crumbling cities and an endless scope for travelling mayhem. His mate – a young Sean Lock – joins him, but their trip starts badly.
Once Sean regains his senses after landing in steaming hot, pre-monsoon Delhi, the pair stumble through Kashmir and Nepal on a ludicrous quest for fun. But on a remote mountain track, Mark discovers something far worse than the boredom of English suburbia, and is thrown headlong into a journey few could survive.
Speed Bump Himalayas will have you in stitches and tears as Mark charts the true tale of his remarkable journey, and his fight to stay alive.
