Those fond of adventurous and unconventional lifestyles are probably well acquainted with the Zapps.

Herman and Candy and their four children - Tehua, Wallabi, Pampa and Paloma - have been a symbol of thinking outside of the box. They have toured the world with their vintage Graham Paige, meeting people along the way and recounting experiences.

The renowned family started their adventure in 2000 from their home land, Argentina, travelling to numerous places around the world and having their babies in four different countries.

Egypt marks their 51st country, after spending three years traversing Africa from south to north.

After 15 years on the road, the family's tales are packed with positive energy and wonder, of which Egyptian fans can catch a glimpse at the Zapps' book signing and meet-and-greet on Saturday 12 September.

The event will take place at Café Vergano at the 5th Settlement on the outskirts of Cairo.

At 5pm a photo slide-show will be displayed, followed by a speech and a film screening at 6pm.
