Publisher's Summary

It's a life-changing trip. Take it! John Ahern had a high-flying job, big house, loving wife and two great kids. But if this was success, why did he sense he was failing as a husband and father? So John did something insane. He quit the corporate world and bought a busted-up camper-van online to chase an improbable dream: a year travelling together as a family...on the road with kids.

From the North Pole to Africa's highest peaks, John and his family get mugged by monkeys, charmed by snake handlers, and challenged by life without phone and email. Along the way John creates a life less ordinary and evolves into a connected partner and Dad. On the Road with Kids is a funny, messy and inspiring adventure all families will love.

    Story
    "less about the impact of kids than expected"
    If you could sum up On the Road with Kids in three words, what would they be?

    drinking swearing and throwing caution to the wind!?


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    most: touched on travelling with children
    least: repetitive themes and phrases


    Did Michael Veitch do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

    I think people in the book were clear.


    Any additional comments?

    Encouraging for people seriously looking at travel. Helpful costing information and teaches about attitude to life.
