Motorhome Novices Tour Cornwall by Nigel Rowland Hicks
Some People Prefer Hotels was the reaction of a grumpy old work colleague's comment when told that Nigel and Emm had bought a motorhome. Whilst nervously driving to Cornwall for a week's holiday during the first heavy rainfall for months and the windscreen wipers stop working, it seemed he had a point.
What with the rotten weather, wobbly campsite toilet pan, temperamental showers and being cooped up in their confined space with Monty, their faithful Border Terrier, surrounded by dripping wet weather gear and muddy boots, they start to think that buying a motorhome was a huge mistake. Thankfully the weather improves. But as they explore some of Cornwall's most idyllic and historic places, with Nigel recalling sentimental memories as well as ranting about everyday annoyances, if something could go wrong, it generally did...
If you haven't already done so, you might just be tempted to buy a motorhome and likewise take to the road. ...Or, there again, you may prefer hotels!
Some People Prefer Hotels is a first person, rather long winded, rambling and idiosyncratic account of a couple's impulse buy of their first motorhome. The author recounts, at length, almost every detail of their maiden motorhome holiday, in Cornwall.
The book is peppered with long asides of personal reminiscences but it does contain some amusing anecdotes, and the trials and tribulations of a first motorhome holiday will be familiar to many old hands and perhaps of interest to new or prospective owners.
