Accompanied by our four cuddly Cavapoos, Kai, Rosie, Ruby and Lani, ‘Dog on the Rhine’ follows the true story of our second year on wheels with our accidental purchase, Caravan ‘Kismet’, towed by ‘Big Blue’; our trusty toy box and van.
Now with some actual caravanning experience under our belt, we got a bit more adventurous and crossed Germany before going for a brief Bark around Bohemia and the Balkans. (The Czech Republic, Slovenia and Croatia.) We suffered a few evictions, including one from Austria before stopping for a bit of R&R in Italy, a country where we did at least understand some of the language.
However, lest we mislead you into thinking that Livin’ the Dream is all sunshine and cornflakes, we tell it how it is. When we returned to the UK, we were confronted by a huge Fidose of Reality.
Including some top tips on travel planning as well as a Barrel of Brewing Wisdom (I used to be a professional beer taster!) ‘Dog on the Rhine’ will open your eyes to the road less traveled. We show you how to take a 7.3m caravan river rafting near Heidelberg; how to avoid getting into a fight when cycling with pensioners – and highlight lots of GOBs (Get Onyer Bucketlist!) in a few of countries where beer is a National Institution.
