My inspiration Julia Albu from Cape Town now 81 years old

A lot of people think this trip is impossible, but my inspiration came when I met this lady in the middle of Ethiopia last year driving from Cape Town to London. granny-epic-road-trip-620x400

We saw each other for a short time in the amazing Ben Adeba restaurant shown below and run by a Scottish lady called Susan.  I followed her on face book and yes she did it, Cape Town to London in her 20 year old Toyota and then back to Venice before she became ill and had to fly back to Cape Town for months of recovery in and out of hospital. The good news is she is much better now.
