It Never Rains But It Paws – A Road Trip Through Politics And A Pandemic

Author(s): Jacqueline Lambert

Location(s): France, Italy

Genre(s): Travelogue, Autobiography/Memoirs

Era(s): Modern

“A great mix of puppies, politics and a pandemic with plenty of sightseeing thrown in. There’s something for everyone.” Lisa Rose Wright: Author of the ‘Writing Home’ series.

“The mix of fun, humour, travel, exploits and anecdotes is lovely. A great romp through (Jackie’s) world and very entertaining.” Alyson Sheldrake: Artist and Author

Five years after giving up work to travel full time, Dog-ma Jacqueline (Jackie) and Dogfather Mark race against time to leave the UK before Britain exits the EU. If Brexit happens, their four Cavapoos (Cavalier/Poodle cross) Kai, Rosie, Ruby, and Lani will lose their puppy passports, and the Lambert Family will be unable to travel together. But Brexit isn’t their only obstacle: a few months into their adventure, the pandemic suddenly shatters their plans, and leaves them trapped in the epicentre of Europe’s No. 1 coronavirus hotspot.

The fourth road trip Europe adventure in author Jacqueline Lambert’s “inspirational and hilarious” series of true travel memoirs invites you to join the couple as they discover even more amazing and little-known places, this time in France and Italy. However, this isn’t just a priceless escape travel story filled with humorous mishaps and mountain adventure. The coronavirus pandemic separates the family from their loved ones at home, and leaves Jackie stranded alone during a blizzard in a remote Italian village, with Mark thousands of miles away, back in the UK.

Between terrible weather, political mayhem, and a global pandemic, Jackie and Mark try to take lessons from each hardship. Yet, even with a positive attitude, a sense of adventure, and a caravan full of loved ones, you can’t stop all the obstacles life rolls your way. These “amusing and informative” travel stories are certainly proof that It Never Rains… But It Paws!
