From Here to There: A father and son roadtrip adventure.. by Jon Faine

Jon Faine is well known to listeners of Melbourne radio station 774.  In 2008 Jon and his son Jack set off on a six month trip overland from Melbourne to London.

Most of the writing is done by Jon, and Jack took over 5000 photographs, although they didn’t all make it into the book! The book appeals on several levels.  It is an adventure, a father son bonding trip, and above all, for the most part, good fun.

The books ends with some useful tips about what to avoid if contemplating such a journey yourself, and the details of the vehicle they used and the modifications made are also shared. It wasn’t all plain sailing, as you can imagine, but the experience sounds wonderful. Paperback, $40
