[Eugenie C Smith] ✓ Vin Rouge, Fiestas and a Small Boat: Through the French Canals to Spain (France, Spain, and Barbados Travel Trilogy by Eugenie C Smith Book 1) [mixed-martial-arts PDF] Ebook Epub Download ↠´ I struggled with this book ever optimistic but gave up after about 25 pages I love France my dream holiday is to take a barge trip along the canals to the south so I thought this book would give me a flavour of it So disappointing As another reviewer stated, it was like reading a school essay or even a shopping list I didn t give it one star as I couldn t honestly say I hated it, but two stars is being generous Don t waste your money.
I live near a Marina in Spain and meet many Yachties , so I can relate to the adventure that Eugenie and her husband undertook Even though I am not a boat person, I found this a very entertaining read.
To undertake such an adventure 30 odd years ago, without the benefits of modern technology i.
e.
no mobile phone or the option of a cheap flight back home, must have been a daunting task The tales of people met along the way break up the narration of the journey, often with added humour.
Once started I had to finish this book, add it to you summer reading list Really enjoyed reading about the travels of this adventurous couple What an exciting life they lead compared to us brits slogging away in the awful weather I liked the fact that the nitty gritty was shown, it was not an exercise in glamour I wish I could sail

What a fantastic adventure and what an intrepid pair I thoroughly enjoyed the events and characters brought vividly to life in this down to earth travelogue Not for this dynamic duo the cushioned luxury of motor yachts and the rarefied atmosphere of posh restaurants This is a book about real people tackling odds and adversity and the occasional spine tingling danger with buckets of humour and steely determination I loved it I hope there is another soon as I will enjoy reading about what they get up to in Spain.
S Scott Clunking prose, cannot decide if it is a history or geography text Seems to have many passages lifted directly from tourist leaflets Lacks atmosphere and any sense of the author s personality Pity Very badly written and extremely boring with no sense of atmosphere or feeling at all Token bits of history that amounted to nothing of any note or interest No feeling at all.
not enough vin rouge for me but the book was great, evocative and tempting to emulate But i think I ll just hire for a couple of hours when we get to the canal du midi can t wait Vin Rouge, Fiestas And A Small Boat Is A Light Hearted, True Account Of Eugenie And Brian Smiths Adventures Bound For Spain Via The French Canals In The sUnder The Murky Skies Of Essex, England, Brian Hatches A Plan To Build A Foot Sailing Yacht From A Kit In The Back Yard And Set Out On A Trip That Would Take Them Across The English Channel, Into The Beauty Of Rural France, And Finally Breaking Out Into The Mediterranean To Extend Their Adventures West Along The Coasts Of France And SpainThe Intrepid Couple Pursue Their Dream Whilst Juggling The Responsibilities Of Three Children, Pets, And Running A Busy Overseas Property Business Despite Their Hectic Lives, Their Personable And Inquisitive Nature Leads Them On A Varied Journey Full Of Rich Experiences, Where They Encounter The Quirky And Often Humorous Idiosyncrasies Of Colourful Characters They Meet Along The Way From Adorably Friendly Lock Keepers, To Boating Adventurers, Local Townsfolk, Wayward Dreamers, And Nudists, They Take Us On A Charming And Leisurely Drift Through Heady Climates And The Intoxicating French And Spanish CulturesTheir Endeavours, However, Are Not Bereft Of Setbacks And Challenges In The Mediterranean, The Notorious Gulf Of Lion Unleashes The Wroth Of The Elements With A Near Capsize In Rough Seas Language Barriers, Unfathomable Local Customs, Boating Mishaps, And All Manner Of Obstacles Have To Be Overcome To Continue The Journey To Pursue The DreamA Treat For Travellers, Boating Enthusiasts, And Armchair Adventurers Alike, Vin Rouge, Fiestas And A Small Boat Offers An Unassuming, Tantalising Glimpse Of Untainted Local Life And CultureVin Rouge, Fiestas And A Small Boat Is A Light Hearted, True Account Of Eugenie And Brian Smiths Adventures Bound For Spain Via The French Canals In The sUnder The Murky Skies Of Essex, England, Brian Hatches A Plan To Build A Foot Sailing Yacht From A Kit In The Back Yard And Set Out On A Trip That Would Take Them Across The English Channel, Into The Beauty Of Rural France, And Finally Breaking Out Into The Mediterranean To Extend Their Adventures West Along The Coasts Of France And SpainThe Intrepid Couple Pursue Their Dream Whilst Juggling The Responsibilities Of Three Children, Pets, And Running A Busy Overseas Property Business Despite Their Hectic Lives, Their Personable And Inquisitive Nature Leads Them On A Varied Journey Full Of Rich Experiences, Where They Encounter The Quirky And Often Humorous Idiosyncrasies Of Colourful Characters They Meet Along The Way From Adorably Friendly Lock Keepers, To Boating Adventurers, Local Townsfolk, Wayward Dreamers, And Nudists, They Take Us On A Charming And Leisurely Drift Through Heady Climates And The Intoxicating French And Spanish CulturesTheir Endeavours, However, Are Not Bereft Of Setbacks And Challenges In The Mediterranean, The Notorious Gulf Of Lion Unleashes The Wroth Of The Elements With A Near Capsize In Rough Seas Language Barriers, Unfathomable Local Customs, Boating Mishaps, And All Manner Of Obstacles Have To Be Overcome To Continue The Journey To Pursue The DreamA Treat For Travellers, Boating Enthusiasts, And Armchair Adventurers Alike, Vin Rouge, Fiestas And A Small Boat Offers An Unassuming, Tantalising Glimpse Of Untainted Local Life And Culture Obviously they have plenty of money and know how tp spend it This makes it rather dull.
