It's a life-changing trip. Take it!

John Ahern has a high-flying job, a big house, a loving wife and two great kids. But if this is success why does he sense he is failing as a husband and father?

So John does something insane. He blows his career apart and buys a busted-up campervan online to chase an improbable dream: a year on the road... with kids.

From the North Pole to Africa's highest peaks, John and his family get mugged by monkeys, charmed by snake handlers, and challenged by their quest to create a life less ordinary.

On the Road... with Kids is a funny, messy and inspiring adventure all families will love.

About the Author

John has travelled to over 80 countries and been shot at, poisoned, tear-gassed, robbed at gunpoint and locked up in an African jail. He has also stowed away in a Colombian cargo plane, ridden across countries on the back of trucks and the roofs of buses, flown in an ultralight over the Zambezi, and been a passenger in two train derailments. He now lives in the comparative safety of the Currumbin Valley with his wife and two children.

    This book is a reminder that life is short and if you have a dream you should stop dreaming and do it. This guy was in a high pressure job, never saw his family, so he chucked it in and they all went on the road around Europe and Morocco for a year. It's an inspiration to all stick-in-the-muds.
