John Higham is a struggling travel writer and an accomplished rocket scientist with 10 U.S. patents to his credit. In June 2005, John Higham and his wife quit their jobs, packed up their home and took their two children on a yearlong, around-the-world adventure, visiting 28 countries on five continents. Both kids were under the age of 10 at the time. If anyone knows about traveling with children, it’s John. You can read about his family’s trip at the Web site Armageddon Pills. His book, 360 Degrees Longitude, about his family’s yearlong adventure, will be published in July, 2009 by Alyson Books. When not writing or speaking about his family’s journey, John works as a systems engineer in Silicon Valley.
