Hi – I’m Jacqueline (‘Jackie’) Lambert, author of the Adventure Caravanning with Dogs series. My books are the true story of how my husband Mark and I gave up work, accidentally bought a caravan, then decided to rent out the house and tour Europe in her full time with The Fab Four, our beloved Cavapoos.
Our main objective is to get off the beaten track and To Boldly Go Where No Van Has Gone Before!
I was thrilled to be asked to host a live author Q&A: Spotlight Sunday on We Love Memoirs (WLM), a friendly Facebook group which connects memoir readers and authors worldwide.
So, if you want to know how we fund our travels, all about The Fab Four, our plans, the practicalities around travelling with dogs – or the latest on the conversion of The Beast, our new expedition truck, read on!
At the end, there is also a round up of some fabulous travel books, all of which will make great Christmas reading or presents!

It seems that half asleep, in semi-darkness and without my glasses, I had turned on the grill rather than the hob. Crumbs in the grill pan explained the smell of toast as they heated up to the point of near combustion… Thank goodness for the smoke alarm. Otherwise maybe WE would have been toast!
