"2 US Girls Girdling World On 50 cents A Day and Peanuts." China Post, September 17, 1961, says it, but there's more!

Rosemary's letters home are heart warming. The story narrative is real. This unique personal memoir with its stunning photos is engaging and humorous, a journey unusual for it's time could only have happened fifty-eight years ago - an incredible once in a lifetime experience that cannot be repeated today.

Two best friends after college, travel around the world in 479 days on a budget of 50 cents a day. These hitchhikers bummed rides on planes, wiggled upgrades on ships, and drove 8,000 miles of India on a borrowed Lambretta. Visiting some 35 countries to meet the locals in untouched villages, they hiked the Himalayas in Nepal, tried opium in Ceylon, hitchhiked through jungles of East Africa and Sudan, crossed the endless Sahara coupled with a six-day voyaged up the Nile on barges to Egypt en route to the Middle East.

Going from sleeping on the floor of train stations and on robe beds crawling with red ants, to gold trimmed marble maharaja palaces, each day was filled with unexpected surprises. The girls' share their experiences with meeting Ambassador Galbraith, Maharaja of Baroda, King of Kuwait, Nancy Kwan, and Prime Minister Nehru - along with many charismatic individuals. Not to miss crashing the Embassy reception in New Delhi for Jackie Kennedy.

Written in an engaging, unique style, the perfect book for any traveler of any age. True stories that make you laugh...stories that make you cry.
