Part memoir, part travelog, this book is an entertaining look at life on the road, exploring the nooks and crannies of Europe. With their low budget, practical approach to independent travel, this couple from Kentucky have taken 13 trips, crisscrossing the Continent in 8 different camper vans. They have logged 200,000+ miles for a total travel time of nearly 9 years, turning a severe case of wanderlust into a life full of adventure. If you have ever considered taking time off to travel, AFTER THEY’VE SEEN PAREE just might give you the courage, incentive, and know-how to make those dreams come true.
Ceeney Dodson and Ed, her husband of 42 years, have spent a total travel time of 9 years in Europe, logging over 200,000 miles, making 13 trips in eight different vehicles, from vintage VW vans to modern RVs with all the mod-cons. Not only experts on what to see and do, they know about shipping a van to Europe, or buying, storing, and selling one in England. Besides the Continent, they have traveled in Turkey, Cyprus, North Africa, Iceland, Ireland, and Britian. They are members of the Royal Oak Society and the British National Trust, where they have visited more than 300 properties.
When they are not exploring Europe, they are at home on their little farm in Kentucky where they do volunteer work for several organizations. Ceeney is a retired piano teacher and homemaker, directs the choir at church, and still practices the keyboard once in awhile. She enjoys cooking, sewing, and quiet evenings by the wood stove with Ed, planning their next adventure.read more
