ADVENTURE-CARAVANNING-WITH-DOGS-Generic
I have just created a Booksprout account and there are 20 electronic review copies of my new book, Dogs n Dracula – A Road Trip Through Romania, up for grabs if anyone would be kind enough to read and review it by 30th November.
Click here for the link. Please also follow me in the Booksprout App.
Although it is Book 3 in the series, it does stand alone, since each book covers just one of our single trips.
With a mix of fascinating history, spectacular nature, castles and captivating medieval citadels, find out why The Spectator claims that “Romania is “Europe’s most overlooked holiday destination”.

And find out why, according to everyone else, it was somewhere where we would be robbed, scammed, kidnapped by gypsies, eaten by bears or attacked by wild dogs and wolves – if we managed to avoid the floods and riots!

You will learn the truth about Prince Charles – and how we truly did ‘Boldly Go Where No Van Has Gone Before’!

Authors rely on reviews and recommendations, so if you have learned something, been inspired, enjoyed a virtual journey or anything else from my books or blog, please let others know.

Thank you! The Fab Four and I will be eternally grateful.

Three Campsites & a Graveyard. The Sandal Saga in Slovenia!

“You can stay here if you want!”

“You can stay here if you want!” cackled the old woman, as she rearranged the flowers on the grave that she was tending.

We had reached a dead end, quite literally, next to a cemetery in Slovenia.

We had come from Verona and had been on the road for hours. We were looking for our first choice of campsite. “I don’t have the address, but we can’t miss it. Vremski Britof is only a small village. I read about the campsite on a blog and it sounds lovely. It’s right by a river!” Mark enthused.

Campsite Dujčeva Domačija was not listed in our Sat Nav. However, we had the postcode and it was that which had  led us us confidently down the narrow road to the cemetery. It was the kind of narrow road that had me thinking “I hope that we won’t need to do a U-turn…”
