VW Beetle from 1961 that was driven from London to NZ, twice

For most people heading from the UK to New Zealand, the obvious mode of travel would be by air.
Not so for Ivan and Beth Hodge.

When the Kiwi couple wanted to travel home from London in 1961, they bought themselves a brand new Volkswagen Beetle for £439 and decided to tackle most of the distance overland.

Thirty-five years later they did it all again, weaving through far-off traffic by day and bedding down in their cramped little car by night.

Now, they have one final journey planned before parking up the VW for good.
