Andy Pag, 36, from Croydon, south London and Christina Ammon, also 36, as they arrive at The Port of Dover in Kent, after clocking up more than 18,000 miles travelling through 25 countries in a clapped-out “biotruck” salvaged from a scrap yard and powered by used cooking oil. The trip was the brainchild of Mr Pag, who rescued the 22-year-old Mercedes school bus from a scrap heap and used reclaimed materials to turn it into a comfortable eco-home. He converted the bus to run on waste cooking oil and installed a filtering system and a 1,200 litre tank under the bed before setting off in September 2009 determined to prove what can be achieved with people’s rubbish. A year into the journey while he was passing through Indonesia, he was joined by American freelance journalist Miss Ammon who wanted to write about his trip. Love blossomed between the pair and they became a couple, but Miss Ammon joked that her friends thought she was “crazy” to be taking to the road in a beaten-up old bus.
