Have you ever been at work or in a meeting and had an overwhelming desire to escape, just get up and run away? This happened to John Ahern in the inconvenient setting of a Board meeting of one of the nation’s largest companies. He may have had it all: a high-flying job, big house, loving wife and two great kids, but it hit him that if this was success why did he sense he was failing as a husband and father?

So John does something completely insane. He blows his career apart, quits the working world, and with wife Mandy, buys a busted-up old campervan online with one grand goal in mind: to travel for a year on the road…with kids.

Disconnected from the internet, John’s family criss-cross 30 countries on a funny, messy and often confronting voyage. From the Arctic Circle to Africa’s Atlas Mountains, they get mugged by monkeys, charmed by snake handlers, and inspired by their fellow wanderers; along the way discovering secrets to creating a life less ordinary.
