John Ahern Interview

For me, I’m sure for many of us, the idea of spending a year touring Europe sounds like paradise. But what if you had a successful career? A house? Kids?

Suddenly, running away in a camper van – now with a family in tow – sounds less like an exciting adventure, and more like a good way to really test how much you really love your partner. And yet … There’s still the thrill of the open road, the path less travelled, and the joy of new vistas – risks be damned.

When John Ahern had some down-time from his high-flying job, he got to thinking about what really mattered in his life and decided to throw it all to the wind. To buy that camper, to set off with his wife, and to go On The Road…. With Kids.  The resulting book took out the People’s Choice Award at the Queensland Literary Awards.

John joined Sky Kirkham to talk about chemical toilets, driving to Santa’s workshop, and learning to let go. Originally broadcast on 26/11/2016. On The Road… With Kids is out through Pan MacMillan.
