5.0 out of 5 stars Just the job!, 22 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We are planning our campervan tour of Spain in September and used in conjunction with tour guides and campsite guides, this will be the perfect companion to our impending visit. As ever, the Michelin map detail is impeccable and totally reliable. Can't wait to get on the road!

4.0 out of 5 stars Still planning our tour!, 22 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have used Lonely Planet guides for the Far East and feel sure this one will fit the bill too. We plan to be travlling around Spain in our campervan in September, so have not been able to put it to the test yet. However, it is helping us to plan our route very effectively, as to what to see. Can't wait to get on the road and visit many of the attractions listed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yet to be tested out, 22 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have just pruchased this guide ahead of our campervan tour to France, so cannot give a proper evaluation of its utility yet. However, initial examination indicates it has the usual thoroughness one comes to expect of Michelin guides. And lots of additional information about attractions to be found in the immediate area. Can't wait to put it to the test!

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks very useful!, 22 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We are about to embark on our first campervan tour in the UK, so am unable to give a proper evaluation of how useful or otherwise this guidebook is. But it looks like it will be of great use. Also the free travel card offer looks like it will help save us money as we go! So hopefully it will be of great use.

Will be travelling to Spain in September, so am unable to give proper feedback until the guide has been used there.


Less Is More
Less Is More

This review is from: Less Is More (Paperback)
Essential reading for anyone wearying of the consumer lifestyle and looking for encouragement to tread an alternative path. Not everyone's cup of tea, I am sure, but well worth dipping into for some spiritual comfort. Also just the sort of book to loan to other seekers.

Another fit of nostalgia! Haven't read Betjeman since school (50 years ago) so it was a pleasant poetic trip down memory lane to reread many and to read others for the first time. It now has joined my other cherished books on my bookshelf!

3.0 out of 5 stars Histage book, 3 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My wife and I met the Chandlers when we were out in Tenerife at Christmas 2012. It was interesting to read this account of their kidnap by Somali pirates. However, having been put together based on interviews by the author, it had less of an individual feel to the drama of being taken hostage.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rumpole DVD Box Set, 3 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this in a fit of nostalgia! It is good to see the old programmes again - but I have to say I had forgotten how much television programmes have evolved in the intervening years! Whilst fun, the programmes have seemed a bit stilted and the picture quality is not as good as more recent programmes - however, we are talking about pre-digital tv! For lod times sake, it still represents good value!

An excellent buy - the computer was all in fine working order. The keyboard had a sticky key for one letter, but the company replaced it very promptly no problem. Am very impressed with the quality of product and of service and would certainly recommend using them.
