I read this book and then gave a copy to my mom, telling her that I had finally read an author who expressed what it feels like to come home from an amazing trip.

This is worth reading! Older readers will wonder about missed opportunities while younger readers may feel challenged to plan that adventure they've only dreamed about. There is an honesty about the narrative that is charming and at times almost unsettling or too private. However, this truly allows you to see inside the family and become very fond of them. I doubt the author planned to write a funny book, but he has skillfully inserted humor where you would least expect it. Hopefully this is not the last we hear from Dave Boesch!

Easy read. I enjoyed the frank and comical insights of family life on the road. A funny and inspiring read about one family's trip of a lifetime. Can't wait for my kids to get a bit bigger so we can go on our own journey.

Format: Paperback
David Boesch manages to take the reader with him on an adventurous trip around the world that most people could only dream of, while at the same time, telling a touching story that will resonate with any family. The book takes us on the emotional highs and lows that 5 people feel as they travel the world together, laughing, crying, loving and, most of all, growing closer together as they traverse the globe. Boesch, an emergency department physician, has the uncanny ability to teach you something about the world that you didn't know in one sentence, and have you laughing out loud in the next. Above all, the book is funny. Really funny. It's a great read.

I read this book and then gave a copy to my mom, telling her that I had finally read an author who expressed what it feels like to come home from an amazing trip. This author writes so bravely and so honestly. The book reads very well and the experiences are purely expressed because the purpose in this book is to tell a story- there is no motivation to make the family members look better, more popular or superior- there is no hidden agenda- there is simply a wonderful story to tell. This book is most impressive to me because it would have been so easy to leave out the personal foibles, but instead they are addressed in the context of a functioning family- there are offenses and there is forgiveness- and the latter is rarely seen in any branch of the media. I admire the author and his family and this book left me wanting to read more.
