about

In the throes of a global recession, Rik and Zara Leaf sold their house and spent a year traveling around the world with their son Zion, and daughter Riel, investing their life savings in a laugh out loud adventure of a lifetime. The family filmed horror movies in Canada, ate mafia-made pizza in Germany, got caught sneaking onto a Hollywood set in Hawaii, survived a feral dog attack in Malaysia and dorsal fins emerging from the surf as they swam off the Australian coast.  The thought of abandoning conventional wisdom and getting away with it was too exciting to pass up. Of course, the decision to really 'go for it' involved lots of anxious 'what ifs' and 'are we out of our frigging minds?' Throughout the year they produced a videos series called, "Where in the World are Zion & Riel?" QR codes linked to these videos are included in the book, creating an amazing interactive reading experience.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epic family travel adventure A gut-busting, laugh-out-loud adventure that follows the meandering and loveable Leaf family on their year-long, globe-trotting adventure. Mr. Leaf's writing style is crisp, witty and highly self-deprecating, yet still manages to bring foreign lands vividly to life with a thoughtful and (usually) mature perspective. This is an absolute must-read for anyone interested in travel, escape, adventure, or just plain fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely hilarious I laughed out loud three times before I finished the first chapter. And the fun just kept on coming. Written with delicious wit and a keen sense of self-deprecation, this story spans four continents and a lifetime of adventure packed into a single year. Entertaining on all levels.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rik Leaf meets Chevy Chase A hilarious and perspective expanding portrayal of a family of five on a year’s adventure spanning four continents. A delight for accidental tourists or those needing a nudge to the heart to head for the open road of their longing. While most stay safely anchored to routine Rik Leaf and his family think nothing (well maybe a passing thought of trepidation or two) of risking the possibility of a world expanding experience of people, places and serendipity. All told with Leaf’s eye for situation and his National Lampoon reverence.
