What’s It About?

To Hel in a Hound Cart – Journey To The Centre Of Europe: “Go to Hel!” The local wasn’t being rude. She was describing Poland’s best beach and windsurfing destination. Released from coronavirus lockdown, Jackie and Mark packed themselves and four dogs into their hound cart (RV), but are unsure where their wanderlust might take them. Their adventures soon start stacking up. Dodging precipitous cliff-side roads, political unrest, and a global pandemic, will they make it to Hel in a Hound Cart, or is that what will happen to their plans?

“Exuberant, sparkling with wit, insights, and well-researched historical facts… it’s laugh-out-loud, poignant and superbly written.” Fi Kidd, Overland Adventurer

“Her irrepressible sense of irreverent humour and quest for knowledge once more shine through.” Sue Bavey, Author of Lucky Jack (1894-2000)
