In this astonishing true adventure, follow two middle-aged, divorced pals as they embark on a journey that neither sobriety nor careful planning might have ever inspired. After reminiscing over drinks, a spontaneous decision takes them aboard a Philippine airline 747 in 1988, bound for Australia, to reunite with an old friend.


But to say ‘things didn’t go to plan’ would be the understatement of the century.


The series of unbelievable events that befall these audacious adventurers will leave you astounded, amused, and at moments, deeply moved. More miraculously, they lived to recount every twist and turn. Their tale not only evokes laughter and tears but also serves as a testament to life’s unpredictable wonders and the magic that can unfold when you seize the day.


Join these two endearing risk-takers on a whirlwind odyssey that proves sometimes, the best stories are the unplanned ones.

Mike Stovell was born to a poor but loving working class family at the end of W.W.2. in the small Town of Rugby in Warwickshire. Educated at three Victorian state schools, caned on a regular basis mainly for showing off to his class mates. He couldn’t wait to leave school at the age of 15. He has lead an exceptional and varied working life, a fireman on steam engines, an overhead linesman on pioneering electrification of the railways, lorry driver, publican, market trader, art dealer, estate agent, and housing developer, making and losing millions. But still describes himself as a rich man, because he knows money isn’t everything. You name it he has done it and you will see once you’ve shared his adventures, he is truly a loveable chancer that inspirers hope and optimism in everything he does.
