Family Travels: Around the World in 30 (Or So) Days Hardcover – January 1, 1997
The Plan was the hardest part, with Catherine O'Neill persuading her husband, Richard Reeves, and three of their kids, including two spouses and one infant, to agree: first to an affordable round-the-world trip, and then on an itinerary. The emergent trip started in Japan, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, followed by Indonesia, Nepal, India, Dubai, Egypt, Israel, Germany, and France. Told mostly by Richard, but with asides and journal entries from the rest of the family, not counting the babe, the family peregrination is filled with beautiful travel vignettes, interesting and laudable family dynamics, and much fun.
From Library Journal
A nationally syndicated columnist and former political correspondent, Reeves (Running in Place, Andrew & McMeel, 1996) joined with his wife, journalist Catherine O'Neil, to relate their latest family adventures. Their first mad dash around the world?in 22 days?was in 1981. The adventure was repeated the summer of 1995?this time in 30 days, with their family. The travelers consisted of the two journalists, a ten-year-old, a television producer, a rock singer, two chefs, and a newborn grandchild?all with interests as varied as the individuals. Traveling west from Los Angeles to New York, they encountered diverse lifestyles and politics; met heads of state, ambassadors, and ordinary citizens; and enjoyed open-air markets, surfing, museums, and clubs in 16 countries as they sped through Southeast Asia, India, the Middle East, Northern Africa, Germany, and France. This is their tale?unique, moving, eye-opening, and captivating. For public libraries.?Ann E. Cohen, Rochester P.L., N.Y.

I must say that I liked the idea that each family member was responsible for writing a diary and sharing that with Richard. Good info on Asia.
I also enjoyed reading about the young girl and her experiences on the road.
