Dee Davidson and two of her girlfriends worked and hitchhiked their way through Western Europe in 1969. She kept a diary of their adventures and wrote about how three naïve young women from the Midwest tried to take the world by storm. Their inauspicious start as maids in West Germany and waitresses in Switzerland, led them to travels in a dozen countries that were often fun, educational, exciting and sometimes 'unfortunate.'
Ultimately, this coming-of-age memoir is also a wonderful journey for three young women that is as unforgettable for them as it will be for readers. 'Our limited budgets never got in the way of our extravagant appetites for seeing and doing as much as we could possibly do in the short amount of time we had.'
After author Dee Davidson Dosch ran across the diary she kept during that summer of 40 years ago, she writes about how much that experience shaped her future. 'I wanted to tell a personal story that shaped much of who I am today. I learned early on to appreciate diversity in people and places through the many places I was able to visit.' Dosch has worked in the medical field and secondary guidance and counseling. She is the mother of three, the grandmother of four and lives near Springfield, Missouri.
