This review is from: Are We Nearly There Yet?: A Family's 8,000-Mile Car Journey Around Britain (Kindle Edition)
I downloaded this book by chance and I am glad I did as I really enjoyed reading it.

The story follows Ben as he embarks on a five month trip around Britain with his wife and two children under the age of four, all in a Vauxhall Astra. He is intending to review accommodation and attractions based on how child friendly they are for a guidebook. This book details his travels in a personal way, including a very personal journey he was forced to embark on at the same time as the trip. It is like a travel diary which sits behind the published guidebook and gives a frank and personal account of both the journey around Britain and the emotional journey Ben embarked on.

It was really well written and easy to read. I loved reading about the family's experiences in places I know and the stories about the children were really funny and made me glad I have a cat and no small children!

This book made me laugh and parts of it made me cry. This is a real person's account of the ups and downs of real life. How families and relationships really are. None of this rose tinted glasses and romance malarkey. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that likes reading about other people. Just brace yourself to laugh, blink back tears and go on a whistle-stop tour around Britain!!
