3.0 out of 5 stars It's the journey not the destination
This is an accessible read but falls down a little as the writer focuses on their budget and keeping costs down and this thread runs through their trip - seemingly parsimonious rather than just mindful of expense. The writer also focuses more on the destinations and less so on the actual journey and the travelling experience, this is a shame in the latter part where there...

3.0 out of 5 stars It's the journey not the destination, 18 Sept. 2013

This is an accessible read but falls down a little as the writer focuses on their budget and keeping costs down and this thread runs through their trip - seemingly parsimonious rather than just mindful of expense. The writer also focuses more on the destinations and less so on the actual journey and the travelling experience, this is a shame in the latter part where there are two riders and a pillion from whom input could have been drawn.

3.0 out of 5 stars Book about biking., 5 May 2013

This review is from: Heading for the Hills (Kindle Edition)
Being a biker for many years I've read tons of books about bikers travels and some have been brilliant.
Apart from numerous spelling mistakes this book is okay,Nothing more, just okay. It took less than 4 hours to read the whole book. The photos are good but the book lacks the humour you usually get when a bloke writes a bikers travel book. Sorry dawn it's okay but lacks blokishness....

This is just the time of year when you want to read about good bike journeys, anticipating better weather and what motorcycling offers in a sense of freedom and adventure. This book is interesting and holds the attention; basically, a light read, completed in a few hours. On my Kindle, (not the latest version), the photographs are wasted, but the travel details provide a sense of what it is like to travel to Germany and later Italy by road - a journey I did as a teenager and can still recognise, albeit much changed, more than 40 years later. While it is not great literature, I enjoyed reading it on a cold, Easter Bank Holiday Monday: mind you, some of the weather described in the book was not much better. A goodish, short read.

A most enjoyable read and good value, it is an honest, realistic and witty view of motorbiking through Europe. For those of us who are at home with kids unable to go on adventures this gives a real insite to a non- hardcore biking holiday.

2.0 out of 5 stars dull, dull & dull, 20 April 2015

This review is from: Heading for the Hills (Kindle Edition)
Oh dear... dull, dull & dull.. save £1.53.. can be summed up as "caught a ferry to the continent, got lost a bit, camped a bit, drank some beer, rained a bit.. & did it again to Italy".. an average day of a London bike courier would be much more entertaining!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad., 12 Mar. 2015
This review is from: Heading for the Hills (Kindle Edition)
I would've given this 5 stars, however spelling mistakes and grammar let it down in places. Saying that, I appreciate that Dawn isn't a professional and I thoroughly enjoyed the subject matter written about.

An enjoyable little read about true travelling around Europe, a collection of mini stories that anyone who has travelled in mainland Europe will instantly feel at home with.
