If this book tells you one thing, it is "don't"
on 23 April 2015
About half-way through the book after several weeks of reading, and not sure I will get to the end. I really don't know why this family didn't just give up and go home. They seemed to have hated almost every minute of the experience and were constantly worried about their abilities, their equipment, and the people they met.
If this book tells you one thing, it is "don't". Don't sell up and take your family half-way round the world for an "adventure" without proper/adequate preparation. You may succeed, but is it really worth it for anyone.
