Taking the long way home

Taking the long way home
Mr Tom Woods, Singapore-based British expatriate, set off on a journey from Singapore to England by train.

You may have longed to take the "scenic route" to your dream destination.

You may even have experienced the wonders of such a route.

But you are unlikely to have done so the way Mr Tom Woods chose to do it.

The Singapore-based British expatriate set off on a journey from Singapore to England the long way - via railway.

A flight to London and a train ride to his home town of Woking would have taken 13 hours.

But Mr Woods opted for 32 days of travel, setting off from Woodlands Train Checkpoint on Aug 19, passing through 10 countries, before arriving at his parents' home on Sept 19.

The journey covered 19,000km by train, bus and ferry.
