Drive Around the World
One Family, One Car, One Year, One PlaneteBook - 2013
We've driven around Australia, how about we drive around the world? And with this one fanciful remark, the seeds were sown for what would become a worldwide adventure for one Melbourne family. Fuelled by itchy feet and a profound desire to expand their family's horizons, after five years of meticulous planning and seemingly endless vaccinations, Danny and Sandra packed their two kids, Maddy and Raffy, into their 4WD and headed off on their 'Big Trip'. Over the next 360 days and more than 36,000kms, this ordinary family undertook a truly extraordinary expedition, circumnavigating the globe and taking in experiences, both profound and everyday, which would prove to be life-changing. Based on the blog that the family kept while on the road, Drive Around the World is a touching, at times hilarious and genuinely unique account of their journey. Filled with tales of the unexpected, close calls and boundless adventure, it's a book that the whole family can enjoy and be inspired by.
