Charley Boorman Sydney to Tokyo by Any Means

Charley Boorman embarks on his second series of By Any Means, this time starting his adventure in Sydney and travelling up the Pacific Rim through Australia, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, the Philippines, Taiwan and eventually finishing in Tokyo, Japan.

Charley, crushed by the disappointment of not being able to get into West Papua on foot, is forced to take a series of commercial flights in order to resume his journey north to Tokyo.

Picking up his route in Indonesia, Charley is excited about a new country and a new adventure ahead.

Beginning in Makassar in South Sulawesi, Charley travels up the island and drops in on a Muslim wedding. There he sees another side to how the ceremony is celebrated and even enjoys the delights of home-cooked food.

After getting back in the saddle with the Indonesian Harley Davidson club, Charley samples the interesting local cuisine – bat and dog meat.
