Book Review: On The Road .... With Kids By John Ahern

This is a book review of On The Road .... With Kids by John Ahern which was recently published on 1 August 2014 by Pan MacMillan

I was lucky enough to win a signed copy of this book on Good Reads from the author, cheers John!

John Ahern is an Australian author who has travelled to over 80 countries and when he's not on the road he lives in Currumbin Valley with his wife and two young children.

This was a very funny, engaging and honest story told by John, an average family man, who decides with his lovely wife and two young kid to pack everything up and hit the road for a trip around Europe and beyond.

John has it all - the job, house, wife and kids but feels that he's lacking something. When he finds himself unemployed and unwell, he decides to buy a busted up camper van on the other side of the world and drag his family on a year long road trip!

What John is lacking probably holds true to all of us as we get caught up in our busy lives, distracted by technology, it can make us forget what it's like to really connect with our family, friends, and loved ones.

If you are a traveller you will love the trip down memory lane as John takes you with him to beautiful sights and adventures. I loved John's writing and realness about what it's really like to travel, warts and all, especially by road when they have to do everything themselves including empty the toilet!

I recommend this book to travel lovers, young and old, or even someone looking to put that spark back in their lives, this book might just be the driving force to get you on the road!

I give this book 5 stars out of 5

Jarrah Jungle's Star Rating:

3 Ok - I'm sitting on the fence - its not great but not terrible either
