The Camper Van Coast: Don't take my word for it.



Did I say that I had another book out? Of course I did. It’s been bubbling away for about a year now. And it seems that, from those who have taken the time to review it, it’s been really well received.
So, forgive me whilst I do a bit of selling.

I loved writing The Camper Van Coast and I always felt it was a lovely book, thanks to the work of Saltyard Books. I’m sure you’ll like it too. But don’t take my word for it. Here’s what the reviewers on Amazon wrote:

“Just what you need to take on holiday, Full of useful tips and suggestions.”

“Highly recommend this book! Lovely recipes, invaluable tips, destination recommendations etc. Makes you want to instantly get behind the wheel and drive, drive, drive! So much fun to be had out there!”

“I liked this so much, we brought the other one too, great recipes and a good read, it makes you want to grab your camper keys and go to Cornwall with your surf board and some food for some fun and great eating.”

“A really nice book which has some great tips and recipes , written with a sense of humour that will appeal to most readers.”

“A great book which radiates fun, sun, food and freedom. Love the pictures and recipes - can't put it down!”

“This is a book I would love to have been able to write. It's got humour, decent recipes and above some great tips, suggestions and comments which make you want to get in the camper and go now. Or, in my case, go and buy one in the first place.”

“A wonderful book with inspiring camping recipes, inspiring photos and a lovely read. We bought this for a friend's birthday who has just bought a campervan and we were so inspired we want the book too.”

“From the same author as The Camper Van Cookbook, I expected a book with yummy looking recipes, stunning photography and some hints and tips. Oh, how I was not disappointed.”

“This book is a lovely sequel to "The Campervan Cookbook". We have been trying (and adapting) the recipes while on our travels and haven't had any culinary disasters, all plates have been thoroughly cleared by the other members of the family with cries of "More" from my three year old!”

“The photography is amazing, mouth watering dishes for us all to try. Martin has included info on how to live the camping life/in your van/in your chosen mode of wheels with your camping journeys.”

Thanks.

  4. Hi Martin,
    You might be interested in my site about living in a 4WD Toyota Hiace camper van. I've been living in it over a year now working, and about to set off for a trip round the Scottish highlands and Islands next month.. I'm from N Ireland but moving to Wales after my Scotland trip, but continuing to live in the camper van. I've been watching your series on 'Quest' - loved the bucket barbecue idea as I do a spot of fishing myself. Check out hiacehobo.blogspot.com
    Maybe our paths will cross sometime. Have a great summer,
    Chris
