About this title


Pedro, a 1969 VW Beetle, was happily enjoying his retirement in the Californian sunshine when his world was turned upside down. He was sold to Fiona, an English woman, and shipped across the Atlantic. His travels wouldn’t end here though; on arrival in the UK he received modifications and preparation for the longest journey of his life so far, over land to Singapore. Joining him on his travels were his English driver Fiona and American non-driver, Rica. Mechanical gremlins struck on day one; how on earth would they make it 22,000 miles across deserts, rivers, mudslides and mountains if they couldn’t even get out of the country without breaking down! Sometimes funny, sometimes scary; thought provoking and emotional but always entertaining. Fiona tells the tale of an incredible journey in a car that is fast becoming a legend.

About the Author:

Fiona is a Camera Operator for Sky TV in the UK. She has traveled extensively for both work and pleasure; from a season working on the Formula One motor racing to walking with Lions in Zimbabwe. Fiona first combined her passion for travel with her love for cars in 2006 when she bought an old Beetle for 99; then drove it across the Sahara desert! Since then she has driven a Nissan Micra to Mongolia and a Fiat Panda around Italy. Then came the epic journey in a Beetle to Singapore, described by many as the ultimate motoring adventure. Since then she has driven a borrowed BMW E46 M3 around Wales and to the Netherlands, toured frozen Icelandic roads in a Nissan Micra and was lucky enough to drive Ferrari's in Norway and Denmark. She is always planning her next trip and will be away again as soon as funds allow. Fiona grew up in Hamble, on Britain's south coast; a sailing mecca. She stills spends much time in the village and when in London lives on a boat, to save getting too home sick.
