A woman from Newcastle has completed a 70-day tour of the UK in a VW campervan called Rosie.
Rachel Kershaw won a competition to follow the Olympic Torch round the country in the vintage vehicle, while exploring the UK's top attractions.
Along the way, the 30-year-old from Fenham bungee-jumped from the Transporter Bridge in Middlesborough and flew a gyrocopter over the Lake District.
She also interviewed Olympic torchbearers in Liverpool and rode a loop-the-loop roller coaster at Pleasure Island in Cleethorpes.
She told Sky Tyne and Wear touring Northumberland was one of her highlights, as was surfing in the sea at Longsands Beach in Tynemouth.
Yorkshire-born Rachel, who usually spends her time working as Head of Creative Sevices at Metro Radio, has been tweeting and blogging throughout the journey.
She won the opportunity to become Visit England's 'Fan In A Van' by submitting a video about how much she loved Newcastle.
The organisation ran the competition to highlight attractions and activities within the UK, and encourage more people to visit them.
Rachel said: "It's been the trip of a lifetime. I've become an even bigger fan of England, and I've become an even bigger fan of these campervans."
