Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Follow the inspiring trek of author Nicola West as she drives her 50 year old Mini through three continents and ten countries to assist the Willow Foundation help children devastated by life threatening disease. Her sponsored journey, a lone expedition without a support crew and through potholes and sandstorms is a 6,800+ miles never-done-before drive across North Africa and the Middle East. This book is an incredible read.

Synopsis:

Oblivious to the sound of chalk scratching on blackboard, Nicky stared wide eyed into the pages of the atlas. The Mediterranean landscape beckoned, and it occurred to her that Egypt – land of mystery, Bedouin tents and Turkish delight – didn’t seem very far away at all ...   Thirty years later and determined to help Willow Foundation, Nicky decided it was the perfect time for a sponsored run with a difference: a never-been-done-before trek of 6,800+ miles in under 40 days, driving all the way to the Great Pyramid and back in a 50 year old Mini – ten countries, three continents ...A lone expedition, it would undoubtedly be an epic and arduous drive, without a support crew, enduring potholes, sandstorms and occasional wayward camels; but it would also be an incredible adventure, with every mile the car covered helping children devastated by life threatening disease.  This book follows Nicky’s journey from preparing the Mini, to crossing the scorching sands of North Africa and the Middle East, all the way to the exhaustion and sheer elation of finishing with a wave of the chequered flag at Castle Combe racetrack. An inspiring and informative read.

About the Author

Having spent countless hours as a child travelling the world, visiting forgotten civilizations and witnessing heroic battles from the safety of an armchair, head buried deep in a book, Nicky WestÆs wanderlust finally stretched its wings in 1998, when she was asked to navigate on the Dash to Marrakesh Rally. Bitten by the travel bug, Nicola has since competed with husband/driver Rob Stacey in such historic events as the Monte Carlo and Acropolis rallies.
