Description

Bestselling author James Dodson sweeps readers along on his once-in-a-lifetime trip with his young son through the great cities and eccentric byways of Europe in a book that celebrates the wonder, comedy, and adventure to be found in the most unlikely places. There are two kinds of travel, someone once said-first class and with children. As Jim Dodson discovered during the summer of 2001, when he and his ten-year-old son Jack set off to see the "old" world, traveling with a kid can almost make a grown man feel-and behave-like a child again. The stated aim of their larkish adventure was to try and circle the globe and spy the wonders the world has to offer, but the best-laid plans soon went awry. Father and son encountered many unforeseen obstacles to their journey-some hilarious and others heartbreaking-but they discovered something far more valuable in each other's company: a world where, at the end of the day, unexpected laughter and pain can make us all friendly small-town neighbors.show more
