I am an author and blogger with a passion for dogs, skiing, windsurfing, travel & adventure.
I welcome requests for interviews, articles & comments.
I’m UK based, but may not have reliable internet while travelling!
Hi! I’m Jacqueline (Jackie) Lambert – author of the Adventure Caravanning with Dogs books.
Fed up of living life in thin slices, hubs Mark & I gave up work. We immediately adopted four puppies, accidentally bought a caravan, then decided to rent out the house, sell most of our possessions & tour Europe full time with The Fab Four. Our mission:
“To Boldly Go Where No Van Has Gone Before“
I set up my blog to entertain and inform about our journeys A.D. (After Dog). I want people to see that it’s possible to live your dreams without being a millionaire or winning the lottery.
B.C. (Before Canines), I rafted, rock-climbed, backpacked, skied & windsurfed around six of the seven continents. I can fly a plane, have been bitten by a lion & eaten fire on Japanese T.V. Click HERE to see My Adventure A-Z
