In today's modern world, we have become dependent on something. We use a car or bus to go from one place to another. If we have to go outside the country, then we take the support of the airplane and we will have to take such a far journey. However, there was a time when a bus was running from our country to London. There was a time when the bus used to run for foreign countries. You do not believe this, but in the 70s, the bus used to travel from Kolkata to London. Many people may not be ready to accept the fact that even such a long bus journey takes place, but this is absolutely true. The bus service was operated by a Sydney Tour and Travels company.
This bus service was the longest bus journey in the world at that time. When it used to take about 45 days to reach the destination due to the long way. This bus service was started by Albert Tour and Travels, a Sydney company, in 1950, which continued until 1973. The route of going to this bus was also very interesting.
These tickets of this bus are going viral on social media these days. The day of departure of this bus and the day of reaching London was already fixed. If there was a place to roam somewhere along the way, then this bus would stop there and the company conducting the tour used to stay in the hotel. Passengers traveling to London used to travel extensively in this bus. The bus started from Kolkata and after that, it reached London via New Delhi, Kabul, Tehran, Istanbul. Then this bus used to roll back from the same route. During this bus journey, it was also kept in mind that people's journey should be very comfortable and memorable.
