McGregor and Boorman on their way

1 of 1

Ewan McGregor has finally set-off on his 20,000-mile round-the-world trip with close friend and fellow actor Charley Boorman.

The two will be on the road for three months on a route taking them through the Ukraine, Mongolia and Siberia on their BMW R1150GS Adventures.

McGregor has played many action roles in films such as Star Wars but isn’t underestimating the very real challenge the trip presents.

Despite a rigorous training regime and making plans to deal with most eventualities, he had to admit: " I’ve no idea what to expect from one day to the next. "
