Ever dreamt of running away to see the world? Best-selling author Sam Pease did exactly that. For nearly two years. With her son Jet.

Ever dreamt of running away to see the world? Best-selling author Sam Pease did exactly that. For nearly two years. With her son Jet.

Their 600-day ed-venture took them all over the world, from snorkelling with millions of jellyfish in Palau to camping with nomads in the Sahara Desert; from dancing on the Great Wall of China to giggling on a super-tacky super-yacht in Monaco.

Sam's refreshing, hilarious and moving travel stories will make you smile. Jet's diary and priceless observations on his 'eccentric' mother will make you laugh. Out loud.

This isn't just an entertaining travel book: it's also a how-to guide, full of tips on how to parent-on-the-move in a way that lets you relax and enjoy the experience. You'll also learn how to get the best deals on everything from flights to sights, and discover the benefits of slow travel and unschooling.

The Jet Project will inspire you to pack it in and pack your bags.

Reviews

Sam's two year ed-venture with her 10-year-old son Jet is more than a DIY for family travel, more than 101 in accommodation budget tips, and food budget tips, it is a delightful account of travel adventures... Sam's writing is fresh, humorous and often insightful... For both mother and son the 'Jet Project' was a complete success giving them amazing memories, an indestructible bond and many new friends.
