Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

The author and her husband devised a simple plan – to take a tent and the dog and drive around the perimeter of France. Like many simple plans it went wrong before it started and they ended up with two dogs and a campervan named Tinkerbelle.

Starting in Brittany, they motorhome along the Atlantic Coast south to the Pyrenees, then follow the Mediterranean resorts to the Alps before juddering off towards the north coast across terrifyingly high mountain causeways. But on the second day of their journey Tinkerbelle begins to self-destruct, helped by the new dog who does his best to eat her from the inside out. This is their story, as they travel from sandy beaches to snow-topped mountains exploring the diverse cultures, cuisines and countryside making up the country called France. Their journey takes them to places out of the ordinary, meeting interesting characters and witnessing ancient traditions. While the dogs rejoice in the freedom they find running on the beaches, Susie and Terry spend a lot of time holding their breath, wondering whether their clapped out old campervan called Tinkerbelle will manage to negotiate impossible mountain routes and get them home before she completely disintegrates.

‘Wow, what a road trip. The chaos that is Tinkerbelle with two adults and two large dogs, one still a puppy who delights in eating non-edibles, makes for some very funny tales to read.’ French Village Diaries

‘One of the best holiday reads this year. Travelogue with a difference...’ Az US

‘Its not often that you find a book that is both entertaining and extremely informative at the same time.’ Az US

‘I felt like I was right there in Tinkerbelle with them all. I could almost smell wet dog. I hope Susie and her husband have many more adventures and let me tag along via her next great book. Keep them coming Susie!’ Az US

‘I just love reading Susie's books. Her travel books contain loads of helpful information, plenty of humor and often the odd tear. I even slowed down my usual reading pace to try and make it last longer. Download it, read it and enjoy it.’ Az US

Travels with Tinkerbelle is a personal story sprinkled with humor but also a France guidebook full of history and practical information. Dog lovers who enjoy dog humour, France lovers who enjoy travel humour, and fans of travel writing of the highest calibre, like Bill Bryson, Tim Moore and Peter Mayle, will love this book.

Enhanced features include links to each section of the journey at the beginning of each chapter; links to more information about the most significant places visited on the trip and an accompanying online photo album.

‘There are a handful of authors that will achieve that elusive trick of making you laugh out loud. For me it's James Herriot, Bill Bryson & Susie Kelly.’ French Entree Magazine

gets a bit boring because it is too detailed, but maybe it is the only way to write it. I thought it would never end

3.0 étoiles sur 5 OK, but not what I'd expected 22 octobre 2014
Par Dawn - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I had previously read two other books by Susie Kelly, and thoroughly enjoyed both of them. I had expected this book would be in a similar vein, full of interesting anecdotes about the people she meets during her travels around France. I was disappointed to find it's mostly just a faithful recollection of a vast number of scenic and historic landmarks. There's a little about the dogs, who mostly play with each other or other dogs they meet, some about people they meet, but as the meeting is very brief, there's little of any interest learned about these people's lives, and a little about the difficulties in travelling with an ageing van. But apart from that, it's a travelogue.
There's nothing wrong with that, if it's what you want to read, but I was expecting more along the vein of Swallows and Robins.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great story and I learned a lot 18 octobre 2013
Par C Davis - Publié sur

I think I've read all of Susie Kelly's books on Kindle. I love her honest and open way of telling a story. I've not traveled a lot in France so I really learned a lot from her travels. I had the book going on my old Kindle and I was Googling the towns and tourist spots on my Kindle Fire as I went along. I wanted to see pictures and read more history of all the wonderful places she and her husband...and 2 dogs stopped to visit. I enjoyed having a picture up on the Fire as I was reading her story. I felt like I was right there in Tinkerbelle with them all. I could almost smell wet dog. I hope Susie and her husband have many more adventures and let me tag along via her next great book. Keep them coming Susie!

I ' familiar with many of the areas she describes, and she does a fair job of telling the reader about them. But I found her husband to be a cipher, and I found her unsympathetic. What kinds of idiots set off with a falling-apart vehicle? She may have meant to be funny, but comes across as not very bright. And the dogs...I cannot imagine traveling with them, especially the "puppy" that is a chewing machine. She never says anything about cleaning up after them, so I hope I don't encounter traces on those beaches where they let the dogs run free. Ah well, different tastes...

This took some time to get into, particularly as each days account like a diary felt like it had to be described on twitter (150 characters or less). Other than the dogs, there was little character development. i enjoyed the historical aspects of some of the places visited butt these were brief and looked like they were copied from a travel brochure. Perhaps the trip was too big and done in such a short that time the accounting of each location became too brief. I did not like it as a travel book to consider places to visit, not did I like it as an adventure tale of a trip around France, as it was a mix of both and failed to meet either.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 A thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining travelogue and history lesson rolled into one. 10 août 2014

I enjoyed this book because it was much more than an entertaining travelogue, it also had quite a bit of history in the story of this couple's travels. I would love to have gone with them, it sounded so entertaining with the two dogs and Tinkerbelle who was on the verge of a meltdown most of the way.

The only reason I did not give it five stars is because it was poorly edited. There were extra words and switched up words, which made no sense. So I cut one star out for that reason.
