9781412081412: Europe in a Motorhome: A Mid-Life Gap Year Around Southern Europe

Bored with the daily grind and keen to escape the rat-race, Hazel and Simon Jackson did what so many dream of - they sold their house and possessions, bought a motor home, took their thirteen year old son out of school and travelled Europe. They left winter behind and for the next year they barbecued on beaches, skied on mountains, swam in warm seas and danced at fiestas. Encountering everything from Spanish hospitals, and the Guardia Civil when they were robbed in Spain - to being ripped off in Rome, propositioned in Sicily, dazzled in Dubrovnik, and almost drowned in Slovenia . . . they wild-camped their way through southern Europe, in a motor home affectionately known as The Beast. They slept, ate and lived in a different place almost every day, meeting locals off the beaten track, making new, lasting friendships . . . and shared it all with their teenage son Jack. If you enjoy travel and need to be re-assured that you aren't the only ones who break-down, get lost, or stuck in impossible situations, then this is the book for you. Join them as they travel for a year through Europe, from the luxury of your arm-chair. Brimming with useful tips and historical information, this is a book full of humour, catastrophes and everything else that comes with life on the road. It is a dream come true.

About the Author:

Hazel Jackson was born in Cheltenham, England in 1950 and moved with her family to rural Herefordshire to do 'The Good Life' in 1987. In 2003, having finished renovating their home, and with three sons grown and flown the nest, they sold up and with their youngest son, set off to explore Europe. She now lives with her husband and son, on the Welsh borders. Simon Jackson has travelled extensively in the past and spent a year on the desert island of Cocos, off Costa Rica, as one of the original members of Gerry KingslandŐs first 'Castaway' group.

Review:

"It only took two pages to have me totally immersed." ---Real Travel Magazine

"... refreshingly honest... it makes for compelling reading... making the book more than just a travelogue" ---Hereford Times

"This great new work is the account of a one year tour around southern Europe in a 33ft Damon Intruder RV. The spontaneity of much of the trio's adventures shines through... a wonderful read" ---Practical Motorhome (Travel Section)
