Author Barry Finlayabout this book: How would eight people related by marriage get along if they travelled together to various locations around the world? Very well, apparently. I Guess We Missed The Boat takes a humorous look at that very subject as eight retired family members travel by nearly every imaginable means of transportation to every corner of the globe. Hilarious stories arise as they reminisce about their exploits in a hotel room in Florida. And the stories are mostly true!

Seniors will enjoy this book especially as many will be able to relate the stories to their own travel misadventures and enjoyable times. Those who haven't travelled much will just enjoy being along for the ride.

Seagull strafing runs, wild bus rides, skiing mishaps and a near fistfight on a cruise ship in the Caribbean are only a few of the topics that come up which serve to enhance the awe of the pyramids, the swirl of the bagpipes in a Scottish pub or the gentle breeze on a Hawaiian beach.

You will feel like you are along for the ride with this family.

Reader Views thought enough of I Guess We Missed The Boat to award it the title of Best Travel Book for 2013-14.
