Vagabonding with Kids – The Uncensored, Awkward, and Raucous Pursuit of Family World Travel
With her signature wit, AK Turner deftly slays all the dragons separating "life with kids" from "life with travel and adventure." Determined to prove that long-term travel need not be reserved for the lone male traveler, Turner tackles obstacles including working while traveling, affording an extended trip, pulling kids out of school, and what to do with them once you've done so.
With stories from the author's experiences in a dozen locations around the globe, and the honest and hilarious admissions of her fears along the way, Vagabonding with Kids is a timely affirmation of why we should all journey forth.
