AUTHOR'S PRESS RELEASE: In the throes of a global recession, Rik and Zara Leaf sold their house and spent a year traveling around the world with their son Zion and daughter Riel, investing their life savings in the adventure of a lifetime.

The journey started with the belief that taking risks is a valuable investment...of course the decision to really, go for it, involved lots of anxious "what ifs"; and, "are we out of our frigging minds?";

They filmed family horror movies in Canada, ate mafia-made pizza in Germany, got caught sneaking onto a Hollywood set in Hawaii, survived a feral dog attack in Malaysia and dorsal fins emerging from the surf as they swam off the Australian coast. Throughout the year Rik produced a video series called, WHERE IN THE WORLD ARE ZION AND RIEL? QR codes, linked to these videos are included in the book, creating an amazing interactive reading experience.
