The number-one nonfiction read that made John Cleese and Danny Wallace laugh and Terry Wogan and Richard Briers cry. If you think writing a guidebook is easy, think again. A family's 8,000 miles round Britain in a Vauxhall Astra...
They were bored, broke, burned out, and turning 40, so when Ben and Dinah saw the advert looking for a husband and wife team with young kids to write a guidebook about family travel around Britain, they jumped at the chance. With naïve visions of staring moodily across Coniston Water and savouring Cornish pasties, they embark on a mad-cap five-month trip with daughter Phoebe, four, and son Charlie, two, embracing the freedom of the open road with a spirit of discovery and an industrial supply of baby wipes.
