Customer Reviews on Amazon
A must read for every parent, it makes you realize how we let everyday life and monetary things get in the way of really being a family and appreciating life.
I hope the author will write another book about returning home and dealing with the everyday challenges that it brings.
They knew they had to make a dramatic change, so over the objections of family, friends, and co-workers, that’s what they did—they made a big change.
Though not proficient sailors, they sold their house and most of their possessions, bought a sailboat, and with their six-year-old daughter and ten-year-old son, left on a four-year adventure.
“Everything that defined who we were was gone. Now it was time to find out who we are.”
They sailed down the Caribbean, battling the fears of storms, pirates, and homeschooling. Surviving those things and more, the foursome were not only surprised to still be talking to each other, but were inspired by how strong they had become as a team. Encouraged and emboldened, they left their sailboat in Aruba and backpacked through South America where they:
• Fought off biting ants in the Amazon
• Reveled in the beauty of Machu Picchu
• Observed penguins in Chile
• Hiked to a glacier on top of a volcano in Ecuador
• Stood star-struck in the remoteness of the Atacama Desert
Wanderlust still not satisfied, their expedition branched out to the US. The family crossed the country by train and RV, where they became schooled in the art of RV parking by German tourists and learned the dangers of mistaking a fellow camper for a potato chip eating bear.
The best part of their odyssey was connecting with other cultures and reconnecting as a family, learning they will always be stronger when they are together.
Whether you can sail a boat, ride a bus, take a train, or just cross the street, Carla and her family will inspire you to live a life without borders.
