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.

slow paced book, but has enough interesting moments to keep you going. Travel experiences with a young family hit a chord with me - brave decision. Good, solid read/listen, worth the time but not a 'can't turn it off' type of book.
I loved this book!!! A story of an inspired trip that led to a most-important realization.
loved it, struck a chord with me would love to do the same. oh well....
I thoroughly enjoyed hearing about this family and their adventures around Europe the story was full of warmth and humour. Well worth a listen.
loved it. compulsive and inspirational listening. gently funny and geographically enchanting. suggest you read it too
I loved this book and didn't want it to end. I laughed out loud so many times, it's a true gem and recommend it highly. I certainly have taken on board some of the important things the author experienced and that's family being number one. I loved listening to the struggles of living in the road and all the wonderful experiences the author and his family had together. I will differently listen to this one again. Go forth and purchase immediately.
"so very funny,"
enjoyed every minute of it , you will laugh out loud. selling everything tomorrow a buying my own frankie. Wing it, you'll be right
Brilliant book absolutely loved every minute of it. Life affirming and potentially life changing just brilliant, brilliant, brilliant!
"less about the impact of kids than expected"
drinking swearing and throwing caution to the wind!?
most: touched on travelling with children
least: repetitive themes and phrases
I think people in the book were clear.
Encouraging for people seriously looking at travel. Helpful costing information and teaches about attitude to life.
