Summary
The Marshall family volunteers their way around the globe: living in a monkey sanctuary in Costa Rica, teaching English in rural Thailand, and caring for orphans in India. There's a name for this kind of endeavor-- voluntourism-- and it might just be the future of travel. Desperate to get out of a rut and reconnect with his family, Marshall dreamed of a trip around the world. Once they'd made the pivotal decision to go, John and his wife, Traca, quit their jobs, pulled their kids out of school, and embarked on a journey that would take them far off the beaten path, and far out of their comfort zones
