Why I chose this book:
I read this book a few years back and loved it. Taking a year (or two) and traveling around the world with my family has always been a dream. And while it's unlikely that dream will ever happen, I LOVE reading memoirs about families who do it. Where the Magic Happens is different from other similar books I've read because their mode of transportation is a sailboat. This book taught me so much about what that would be like. It's adventurous, inspiring and so informational. I hope you'll love this book as much as I did.
The Craven family's inspirational story of their momentous two-year round-the-world sailing trip and how they did it--the vision, the planning, the highs and lows, the teamwork, and ultimately, the adventure of a lifetime.
One night when their children were still in diapers, Caspar and Nichola Craven hatched a plan to sail around the world as a family. Most people thought they were crazy. But in the years that followed they embraced every moment of this transformative chapter of their lives. Five years of planning--the vision, the values, the practicalities, the realities, the excitement, the highs, the lows and the seemingly adventure-stopping obstacles--led to two wonderful years of living their dream of sailing the world--full of moments both magical and scary--enjoying life and learning and growing as a family.
This is one family’s story. It’s also a story of a fabulous sailing adventure and an inspirational tale for all those wishing they could do the same; it’s a practical guide to show you just how you can make it happen; it’s a motivational story of leadership and teamwork within a family; and it’s a funny, heart-warming tale of slightly unconventional family life. The fascinating narrative of the Craven family is accompanied by useful text features such as tip boxes, sidebars, and chapter summaries, so that the reader can easily extrapolate the necessary nuggets about how they can make the dream a reality.
