If you are an avid traveler and have lived abroad, you might find yourself remembering your own journeys or be inspired to go on a new one.
In the wrap up, where the author astutely says, that it takes time to percolate the lessons of the year, he reminds us that there is this ever present journey....right here..life. Do it well with purpose and integrity.
Thank you David and family... I don't know you but really enjoyed the book read from on a recent trip from the outskirts of Sienna and SW France to the shores of Santa Barbara.
One Year Off is more of a human interest story about what happens when a family takes off and travels the globe temporarily putting their "regular life" on hold to explore the world. With a compelling story and quality writing, this story is a fun read even if you never take the plunge yourself to head around the world.
Definitely read the book. It's fun, a good read, filled with a couple of practical tidbits (tricks and bribes =)) here and there about travelling with your family. When I have kids I'll definitely do the same, even if they don't appreciate it yet!!
