Description

In fact, making an effort to do some activities alone can take the pressure off having to agree on activities and give you stories to tell when you come back together. You aren’t going to convince Uncle Charlie to vote for a Democrat and he isn’t going to convince you to switch sides either.

Whether you've watched the show or not, this book is just as funny and paints a terrific picture of the pros and pitfalls of travelling with your parents, or other close family members. In a cheerful voice acknowledge their suggestion, “I know that if it were your kitchen, you would love it to be periwinkle. Finding compromises and accepting that there won’t always be agreement about how to spend time on holiday. Nowhere is this made clearer than when Jack relates missing out on the family Christmas festivities in 2020 for obvious reasons, and how hard that hit him.Whether you want to visit a childhood friend or see the new action-hero movie, stating your desires before the holiday will manage expectations, resulting in reduced conflict and guilt. It covers pretty much every step of the journey, including the good, the bad and the downright embarrassing. I wasn’t expecting it to be this good as I read his previous book before and thought it was a good read but not one I would read again.

There’s good advice within too, about the dos and don’ts of travelling with your family, but mostly I just enjoyed the overall relatability of the family dynamics and amusing anecdotes shared. The more information you share beforehand about what you need for your family, the less conflict there will be.

You have just volunteered to spend a week in close proximity with the people who know you best and who will never EVER let you forget a f***up. Especially the outtakes at the end - I’m so glad they included those outtakes and tangents because they were hilarious!

Comedian Jack Whitehall, along with his parents Hilary and Michael, share some, let's say, interesting insights in this laugh-a-minute guide to travelling with those closest to you: your family.Stand-out sections were: In Defence of the Fanny Pack, Chernobyl, Michael's Cambodian Massage Story, and the final section on Christmas. Jack Whitehall, of whom I had no prior knowledge before listening to this book, and his family are so weird and endearing that I'll probably listen to another book.
