Taxi for Kiev: The Story of Six Strangers, Crossing Six Borders, Over Six Days is the true and uncensored story of six lads from very different backgrounds who had never met before but found kinship in a common goal: to get to Kiev for the 2019 Champions League Final between Liverpool and Real Madrid.
They embarked on a 3,500-mile taxi trip that took them to many places – physically, mentally and emotionally. Deprived of basic comforts for six days, this was never going to be an easy journey especially among strangers.
You’d be surprised what you can learn about a man living in such close quarters. Lack of sleep, space and sanctuary just compounded the issue. Add to this a severe lack of hygiene, and this trip looked like a recipe for disaster. Not only did the lads survive and get on well but, surprisingly, they formed lasting bonds.
Taxi for Kiev is one man’s account of that unforgettable six-day adventure – a candid tale that touches on the good, the bad and the ugly in human nature. It has shocks, tears and laughs aplenty.
