It’s always a good time for a road trip...
When 82-year-old Lil decides to book herself, her 65-year-old daughter, Cassie, and her friend Maggie on a bus trip across Europe, she hopes for a little adventure to counteract the monotony of life.
Along with three members of the Salterley Tennis Club and the Jolly Weaver football team, whose ideas of a good time are rather different to Lil’s and strikingly at odds with each other’s, the merry band of travellers set out on their great adventure.
From moving moments on the beaches of Normandy, outrageous adventures in Amsterdam, to the beauty of Bruges and gastronomic delights of France, the holiday is just the tonic Lil, Maggie and Cassie needed.
And as the time approaches for them to head home, Lil makes an unexpected discovery - even in her advancing years, men are like buses – there isn’t one for ages then two come along at once. Is Lil ready to share her golden years, and can the ladies embrace the fresh starts that the trip has given them. Or is it just too late to change...
Judy Leigh is back with her trademark promise of laughter, happiness, friendship, and timeless lessons in how to live.

Many thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources, Boldwood Books, and Judy Leigh for inviting me on this tour.
Lil’s Bus Trip by Judy Leigh is a delightful adventure with a cast of quirky and interesting characters. This book will take you on a laugh-out-loud journey through Europe, with a few characters who will soon become your friends.
Lil aged 82 and her daughter Cassie, age 65 decide to go on a minibus tour of Northern Europe with their friends from the local five aside football team, and three members of the tennis club. This band of merry holidaymakers bonds together as they visit the sights in France, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
Lil’s Bus Trip is just so much fun. You’ll never get bored of the antics of this group of friends as they make their way through Europe. There are a group of 20 somethings from the football team, and some middle-agers from the pub and tennis club, and a couple from the older generation too. They all get up to some humorous shenanigans as they travel together.
This multi-generational book is not just a travel diary of these characters’ adventures, but it examines the personal discoveries as these characters grow and learn about themselves and each other. It’s not just another holiday they are on, but a journey of discovery and adventure and it pulls the reader along for the experience.
I highly recommend this book for anyone, of any age, for a fun-filled adventure. I received a complimentary copy of this book. The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
