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.
