What better way to discover your home country than travel the length of it in three weeks in a campervan? Allie can think of several...
Following some nerve-racking road trips abroad as chronicled in Uneasy Rider - Confessions of a Reluctant Traveller, this time Our Heroine takes to the road with her trusty Other Half to sample the delights of mainland Britain.
Fortunately their not-so-trusty campervan decides it prefers home-ground to abroad, but unfortunately there's not always a warm welcome at campsites on the way Northwards to Scotland.
Seeking out those places linked to her literary and artistic heroes, Allie is cajoled into a private viewing of priceless art-works, can't stop herself leaving a banal comment in a visitor's book and becomes Bonnie-Prince-Charlied-out in the Highlands. She is not surprised however, that Blackpool in the pouring rain at 8.30 in the morning really is the pits.
Join Allie, the slightly easier traveller, through the heart of Britain, as she realises the weather is better down South and it's cold up North.
NB:This is a work in progress, hence the final two chapters are repeats!
