A Summer in ‘69 is the true story of three college coeds who took a summer vacation in Europe and discovered more than just a travelogue.
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.”
