The Book is Here!

"Dear Guests, Beware of Wild Monkeys" is now available for purchase at, for $14.99.

I'm very excited about the release of my first book, which offers tips on planning and executing a family world adventure, along with a travelogue of our own world trip in 2005-06. The 6X9 softcover volume includes a section of black and white photos, and excerpts from my daughter Salome's travel journal, to provide a child's-eye-view of our journey through South America, Europe, India and Southeast Asia.

Click on the above link to read an excerpt, or to order a copy.

Below are the cover and a brief synopsis. I will soon be adding photo galleries of both the world trip and our recent trip to South Africa.

"If you’ve ever fantasized about quitting your job and setting out to see the world, this book is for you.
Learn how to plan and execute a family trip around the world, from choosing an itinerary to arranging for home-schooling to finding the best travel and health insurance.
We’ll also bring readers along for the best of our travel experiences in South America, Western and Eastern Europe, India, Thailand, Cambodia, Hong Kong and Tokyo.
We came within 10 feet of a wild tiger while riding in an open jeep in India and experienced a serious “electrical malfunction” on a jetliner at 35,000 feet.
We ate roasted guinea pig and fried crickets and dined on a floating restaurant in a bay in southern Thailand.
We danced on the tables at Oktoberfest in Munich and became stranded in the middle of Lake Titicaca, between Peru and Bolivia, when the engine of our dilapidated tour boat died.
When it was over, we’d visited 19 countries on three continents, snapped 5,000 photos and gathered countless memories on our journey of a lifetime."
