Pick up this charming memoir by David Boesch and join his family of five on their enlightening one-year, 6-continent, 17-country journey.
The kids (ages 7, 10 and 13) helped select the itinerary by placing "pins on a map" to indicate where they want to go. In addition to their great adventures and range of experiences, the family also shares the results of their search for the best pizza in the world!
Dr. Boesch reviews some of the planning and logistics to set up the trip, and off they go. The tales run the gamut, covering humorous situations, tight spots and unforgettable encounters. The selection of black and white photos help tell the stories as well. Upon their return home there are interesting reflections about their the family's journey, their perspective of the world and their place in it.
This is a great read for anyone who even dreams of globetrotting with their offspring in tow.
