#HeyEllen, it's Jords and Luke here. We started hitching from Durbs, South Africa, in March 2019 to come see you in LA. Not gonna lie you're pretty hard to get hold of. We're getting closer, so we're just trying to avoid that awkward thing where we arrive and you're not expecting us. Anyway, let us know when you get this. Much love, Luke, Don and Jords. (The 'Hitched' series guys.) Ps. Here are our voice-notes from the trip, as per East Coast Radio's Weekend Breakfast with Jane Linley-Thomas. PPS. Dbn to LA is 10,612 miles, and we've taken the long way round. xox
#HeyEllen: Update 32: Back in Durban!
#HeyEllen: Update 32: Ellen is epic. The boys got a huge from her in LA but never made it onto the interview couch. But Jords and Luke are full of the joys of life and back in Durban. And in Jane's studio! Listen to their update.
#HeyEllen: Update 31: Ellen, you're a legend - keep our seats warm!
#HeyEllen: Update 31: Ellen, you're a legend - keep our seats on The Ellen Show warm! That's the message this week from Jords and Luke, who are still in LA, but need to head south where things are a little cheaper while they wait for Ellen's people to hopefully reach out!
#HeyEllen: Update 30: Ellen, we went to your show, and met you!
#HeyEllen, & everyone - we're so close thanks to all your help! We made it onto the show today as part of the audience. We even got to hug Ellen, but Ellen still doesn't know we've made her a documentary. So this is one last push, letting her know we just need 2 minutes to show her our trailer. Please tag Ellen DeGeneres this literally may be the last time we ask you to tag her 🧡🧡🧡 all the love! What a crazy day!
#HeyEllen: Update 29: In LA trying to find Ellen!

#HeyEllen: Update 27: In today's update, Jords and Luke have their final update from Russia, and some really great news about their onward journey!
Kindness on the road
Sho love these boys!
I have followed this story from the get go.
What I love about this journey is that it is fueled by the love and kindness of others and really highlights humanity and shows us the capacity that we can love and look after each othe. Each day these two depend on complete strangers for transport, food and shelter.
Inspired by this story and love connecting with the boys weekly. Travel safely boys, keep pushing, we are behind you!
You guys rock!
I just love these guys. They’re so chilled and cool and just take everything in their stride. And they’re funny too! Lovely listen. And what a great adventure. #heyellen - get them on your show!
