Vagabonding with Kids: The Series

11:11 AM AK Turner 0 Comments

We are back in the United States after two months traveling in Brazil. It is odd not to put mosquito repellant on every day and my children are readjusting to the fact that it's okay to put toilet paper in the toilet. No, I did not bring back the Zika virus. Or dengue, yellow fever, typhoid, and malaria. At least, I don't think so.

Before gearing up for our next trip, I'm putting the finishing touches on Vagabonding with Kids, due out this summer from Brown Books. Here's what they have to say about it...

With her signature wit, AK Turner deftly slays all the dragons separating "life with kids" from "life with travel and adventure." Determined to prove that long-term travel need not be reserved for the lone male traveler, Turner tackles obstacles including working while traveling, affording an extended trip, pulling kids out of school, and what to do with them once you've done so. With stories from the author's experiences in a dozen locations around the globe, and the honest and hilarious admissions of her fears along the way, Vagabonding with Kids is a timely affirmation of why we should all journey forth. 

Vagabonding with Kids will be promptly followed by Vagabonding with Kids: Australia and Vagabonding with Kids: Brazil. Am I stopping there? Don't be ridiculous. Future travels and titles are already in the works. The world is there; we might as well go check it out.

“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.” Anthony Bourdain
