Bonnes Vacances!: A Crazy Family Adventure in the French Territories [Paperback]

Rosie Millard

Available from these sellers.

Book Description

June 1 2011
'Looks like not many tourists visit St Pierre et Miquelon,' I mutter excitedly to Pip. 'That is why this trip is going to be so brilliant.' He looks at me questioningly. I am distracted by Gabriel's unusually pallid face. 'Oh my God, he's going to be sick.' Rosie set out on a tour of the French Overseas Departments and Territories (the 'Dom- Toms') with her husband and four young children, partly to make a documentary series but also to show the children it is possible to survive fourteen weeks without Hannah Montana. From Martinique to Reunion, crossing five continents, they eat stewed iguana, 400 croissants and - since the budget is small - copious amounts of Campbell's soup. Candid, darkly humorous and slightly mad, cut with a dash of French history, this memoir offers insights, amusement and hope for anyone who has ever travelled en famille.

1.0 out of 5 stars A shameful waste of good paper Aug. 28 2011
By Kevin Nicholas - Published on Amazon.com
Yet another piece of worthless drivel from Millard, who can only be described as a pompous gasbag whose world is more stunted than Warwick Davis. This shameful waste of paper is an outrage, considering the pulp used in printing this self-serving trash could have been used to provide loo roll to the needy.
