Having said that, it is a good read just to glimpse some of the exotic scenes outside the U.S.
Would have liked more follow-up on how they met some of the challenges of traveling with their kids. I found Cohen had a tendancy to ask a question but never gave us the answer (eg he wonders how they will feed their kids on the road --who are picky eaters-- and then neglects to tell us what the kids ended up eating to remain healthy during the trip.
Well for him it wasn't the life he wanted and he was not satisfied, he felt their was something missing in his life.
One evening David and he wife came up with an idea to travel all the way around the world for a year with their three kids.
All he had to do was give up his job, sell his house and get rid of most of their belongingness, crazy you might think but that's exactly what David and his family did.
When David and his wife told their friends and family about what they doing some thought it was crazy but others wished they had done it themselves at some stage in their lifes.
This book is made up of over 20 e-mails extracts David sent back to all them friends and family during their year long trip.
David and his family visited 16 countries during their trip and in each one of them countries gave him a story to tell in them e-mails.
The trip is not without it's problems and not everything goes to plan but they make it work and for that he and his wife deserve credit.
In his e-mails David gives some intresting insights in how he,the kids and his wife cope being with each other 24 hours a day, something most familes could never experience in their normal day to day activities.
A very intresting book that gives you a good insight into what life is like travelling with your family around the world all day everyday
