RODNEY the Kombi has covered some kilometres in his long life and now, beautifully restored to his former glory, the classic old van is hoping to help get you started on a journey of your own.

Named after Rod Fraser, who customised the Kombi, Rodney was a big hit with guests at the Travellers Shop's grand re-opening event last week.
