This was an interesting read - a family decides to sell everything they own and take a round the world trip with 2 parents, 3 kids under 8 (1 in diapers) and a babysitter. The stories were entertaining and well written. Unfortunately, I came to this work looking for tips for travelling with my own family. I found, ultimately, that I could not connect with these parents who were both world travellers, possessing more experience, global connections and, definitely, more money than I will ever had. In a post - 9-11 world, this reads more as an extreme fantasy trip than something that the average citizenry could ever emulate.

As my family and I are going to be doing the same thing in a couple of years, I loved this book. It was inspirational and very funny.
