Britain... Unleashed

Do you wish you could travel the world for a while?

Do you have a passion for all things British and want to learn more?

Would you love to bring your dog with you on your dream road trip?


Escape today's bad news, sad news, doom and gloom... wander with my dogs and me and we'll show you Great Britain from a cheeky point of view!

I'd been an airline pilot in the USA for 10 years when I took a chance, chased my dream, and crossed the pond to work as a flight instructor near London.


And then the economy tanked. Belly flopped. Crashed and burned.

Gina in her ASA Captain's uniform. That's me... Captain Gina

I found myself out of a job, living in the house I'd just bought but couldn't afford anymore, with my two German Shepherds who'd just arrived from America.


Great. Now what was I supposed to do?


I know what—I'll buy a caravan and hit the road! Except my little Vauxhall Astra couldn't tow a pony cart, let alone a caravan.

Gina's blue Vauxhall Astra. My little Vauxhall. A great runabout, but not such a great tow car.

Terrific. Now I have to get a tow car as well. Let's see... what's big enough for the dogs and also has enough get up and go for towing?


I know what—I'll buy a Jeep. Perfect for the job, right? (Not so much.)


And so I schlepped from London to Leeds on the train to check out a used car... and struggled home in The Jeep of Death. What could possibly go wrong?


Yeah, well, pretty much everything. [Note to self: never buy a car off eBay again.] The first six weeks of what turned into three years on the road were a serious shakedown cruise, and the first book of the Britain Unleashed series is about our adventures as we got the hang of caravan life.


We'd love to have you come along for the ride as we travel from London to the northern tip of Britain (hint: Muckle Flugga) while we learn caravanning on the fly, deal with the Jeep's many problems (I couldn't make this stuff up), and take my two rescued shelter dogs to places we'd never have dreamed they'd get to go.


The first book in the series is scheduled to come out in early 2020, but if you're keen to get a behind-the-scenes look at Great Britain before then, just click the pink "Newsletter Home" button at the bottom of this page and my dogs and I will take you there!


Keep calm and travel on,

Gina, Jerry Lee, and Holly


P.S. Wondering why it's called Britain Unleashed? Check out the Flashback in Post #6. Who needs a leash?
