Tim and Joanne are self-funding the trip but are Red Cross volunteers and hope to raise a substantial sum for the charity in the process. The pair who are graduates from Brookes and Oxford University have put all their belongings in storage, and let their flats in order to undertake the mamoth trip across the world. Their journey will take them through France and Spain to Morocco then across North Africa to Egypt. By ship to India, drive around the Southern tip, and then ship via Singapore to Australia and finally to Oxford, New Zealand.

Oxford's Kiwi namesake is a small rural village on the Waimakariri River, 55 km from Christchurch. The pair hope to arrive at their final destination in February 2005.
