We Can Drive There

28 Jan 2023

In 2005, Juliet Greenwood met two twenty-something Hungarians who had come to the UK for three months to work. Having been originally unsure of where Hungary was, Juliet and her family were thrilled to find out that it was next to Austria and they could drive there. This is the story of that first journey and six others, in a thirty-five-year-old classic VW, with four kids and one rescue dog.

We Can Drive There is a heart-warming account of family bonds and friendships formed, how strangers can become family regardless of age, nationality or language, and the joy in taking the less conventional approach to family holidays.


Juliet Greenwood was born in Kent, went to university in Sheffield and has lived in Gloucester for thirty years. She has worked as a cycling proficiency instructor, historic church custodian, life model and an elf. Her four children having grown up and left home, she lives with her husband, cats, a dog and a horse. Her family love to travel – on bikes as well as in their bus – and always come back with a story to tell.
