Welcome to TEAmbulance The Ambulance to Tajikistan - From the 9th of July 2011 we will embark on an ambulance and tea odyssey from London to Tajikistan. We will drive our emergency medical vehicle across Europe and along the ancient Silk Road, crossing awkward borders, scorching deserts and majestic mountains. All the while we will endeavour to make friends with all those we meet in typically English fashion - by sharing a lovely cup of tea!
The Plan Now, I have no mechanical abilities and absolutely no medical knowledge whatsoever...and I rather struggle with foreign languages. Therefore what could be more logical than to drive a European ambulance from London to Tajikistan along the old Silk Road!
TEAMbulance Jeremy Aylmer After carelessly leaving my Mum's car in Mali a couple of years ago (www.saharasurf.co.uk) I've found it hard to come by vehicles recently. However, looking in Europe for an ambulance brings fresh hope of being a driver once more. Looking forward to the challenge of filming and travelling across the remote parts of central Asia, offering a good cuppa to all and sundry. Having quit my job to do this, I just hope the vehicle gets beyond Maidstone services before deciding to blow up this time! Kathy Duong and Alex Kumar TEAmbulance members from day 1. Crucial help and support at the launch, getting everything ready and filming, and a great start with them to Bruges to celebrate with a beer! Thanks guys it was a great start :) Susan Drinkwater
I love tea.  And travel.  And, of course, I'm a doctor.  So when Jerry told me about this charity rally, organised by "Go Help" to deliver vehicles for much needed projects in Tajikistan, with the idea of serving tea to everyone we met on the way, I was interested.....And when he told me he was going to be taking an ambulance....I just couldn't not get involved!

Helene saw the ambulance off for the launch, and will be jumping back on board for the final section.
