I decided to do some armchair traveling since I was stuck at home sick for several days. This book about a family's year long "World-the-Round" trip fit the bill nicely. Check out http://higham.smugmug.com/Travel/World-The-Round-Trip for pictures of their trip!

When the Higham family's one year "world the round", trip was over, I was sad too because that was the end of the book.

Yes, I thought the Highams were crazy. Around the world in one year with TWO kids under the age of 12? Camping? Staying at hostels? Feeding piranha's to alligators? Yikes! The book was a real roller coaster filled with funny moments, poignant episodes and thought-provoking descriptions of some of the most horrific sites on the planet. Who thought a rocket scientist could write so well? I loved this book. When I put it down I thought, gee, maybe even I could take a trip around the world. I'd skip the Inca Trail though.

Oh yes I was sad when I finished the book. But wait! There was more! I could go on Google Earth and explore dozens of postings and photos about the trip that were referenced throughout the book. Awesome!
