It has been a lifelong dream of Julia Albu to drive through the African continent.
Last year she called into the John Maytham Show from her Jakkelsfontein home and spoke to John about making her dream a reality.
In June this year, she decided to set off in her trusty 20-year-old Toyota Conquest.
Julia has a blog My African Conquest where you can follow her journey.
She is back in town to deal with her health insurance which has expired.
