    1. Okay, I read the description of this book on the Giveaway list, signed up to win a free copy, and then promptly bought the book on my Nook I did withdraw from the drawing I was taken aback to find out this book weighs in at a hefty 668 pages Then I started reading.d giggling In almost no time, I was nearly 100 pages into the book and we had barely left Bretagne What is really nice, from my standpoint, is that the author is taking us on a tour de France by describing their road trip in just enoug [...]

    2. Travels with Tinkerbelle is, in the barest of terms, a travel diary It carefully logs the places, the cuisine and the stories a couple and their two slightly mad dogs encounter on their tour de France Susie Kelly s book is an adventure, just a afforded, wine appreciating, dog walking type of adventure Initially wary of the temperamental Tinkerbelle, their transport for the six weeks, and slightly nervous of their dogs, their companions for the next six weeks, you embark with them around the cou [...]

    3. I absolutely loved this book It is a travel diary, written in a very succinct style Unlike some travel writers, Susie Kelly doesn t go on and on about things She says what needs saying, and then moves on There is probably no other way this book could be written after all, it does cover 6,000 miles worth of adventures I loved the writing style, the premise circumnavigating France in a motorhome called Tinkerbelle , the stories and adventures and I absolutely adored the antics of Susie and Terry s [...]

    4. This is the second book of Susie Kelly s that I have read and it won t be the last I loved reading about their adventures as she and her husband Terry journeyed 6000 miles around France in a rather decrepit old campervan with their two dogs I particularly enjoy Susie s sense of humour and her wonderful conversational style of writing There s a great deal of historical detail as well which appealed to me It gives a marvellous insight into the different regions of this beautiful country I laughed [...]

    5. Bit too much history.I was looking forward to reading this book as we owned a motor caravan in the 1970 s and used to drive it to, what was, Yugoslavia, However, I found myself flipping over many pages as I wasn t interested in a history lesson More on the food and countryside of the various regions would have been preferable.

    6. Travels With Tinkerbelle 6,000 Miles Around France In A Mechanical WreckSusie Kelly is at it again she was gripped with the itching wanderlust that had to be scratched She and her husband, Terry, decide to buy a small motorhome and circumnavigate France The fact that their budget is minuscule is immaterial The fact that they also have a dog that will go with them isn t crazy enough, they decide to get another puppy to keep the dog company She describes the first dog as small Several chapters lat [...]

    7. What s not to enjoy with this book We have lots of anecdotes about the author s trip around the edge of France with her husband, 2 lively large dogs and a dodgy campervan which sounded awfully like a French one we owned for a while As a bonus, we also learn lots of interesting history and geography along the way It inspires me to go to some but not all the places visited but if I can t go, I shall feel as if I ve been there and experienced it all A book I couldn t put down.

    8. An enjoyable read about traveling through France, amusing anecdotes and historical as well as cultural tidbits about the country I especially loved reading about Alsace since I studied there many years ago.

    9. I really enjoyed reading this book Susie Kelly made me feel like I was there travelling with them Very informative and easy to read It gave a good insight into the different regions of France I loved the dogs especially Dobby and the antics they got up too A brilliant and humorous read.

    10. Funny book about an English couple who travel around the coast of France with two dogs in a camper and the adventures that they have The camper has a lot of mechanical problems, the dogs get into their own adventures Lots of stories about history which are interesting.

    11. More than a travel bookLoved all her books this one especially We travel full time in an RV so her memories of some campsites are hilarious A moving travelogue of France Great read.

    12. Not a bad story by any means, just not wildly amusing either, a typical we went here and saw that type with some amusing highlights here and there Recommended for dog people and vegetarians, as those aspects of their travels featured regularly.

    13. This is my third Susie Kelley so I need not say But I will If you like France, dogs, camping, traveling, food, history and funny grumpy clever emotional women, you will enjoy this book.

    14. Furry travelsLoved the book Makes me want to see of France Enjoyed the combination of history, myths and humor The dogs added to the story.
