Dot. Sydney to London on a Wing and a Prayer is a film that documents the journey of Nathan Millward from Sydney to London in 2009. He set off from Sydney with no plans, not much money, no visas and no experience.
His motorcycle is a trusty Australian “Postie” that he nicknamed “Dot”, it’s a Honda CT110 that was and still is used by the Australian Postal Service. They’ve become iconic bikes across Australia and many people keep one as a backup or spare – which isn’t surprising considering that fact that they can be bought for a few hundred dollars in good condition.
The film runs just under 15 minutes in length and I can’t recommend it highly enough, it’s exactly the sort of adventure that I think everyone should do at least once in their lifetime.
