Five years since Crumple Zone testing

In 2008. JJ and I decided to meet ‘half-way’ between Australia and Germany and settled on Chile. So we met in Santiago before heading north toward the Atacama Desert

I almost got our brave X-Trail and ourselves squashed once before when I barely managed to pull off the road to avoid an oncoming monster truck:

Toward the end of our trip, it did happen… Squashed between a tomato truck and a liquid gas truck isn’t exactly how I envisioned our wonderful trip to end.

Of course such an experience inspired a new novel. Crumple Zone is now available in English and German:

Wow. Love the top photos, but not the one of the crumpled car. ):
Great book, Edith. And quite the adventure you had.
