Donít Call Me Mrs Rogers: Love Loathing and Our Epic Drive Around the World
Donít Call Me Mrs Rogers: Love Loathing and Our Epic Drive Around the World | Paige Parker
1 post
At the turn of the millennium, American-born Paige Parker and investment guru Jim Rogers spend three yearsó1,101 days to be exactódriving over six continents in their "sunburst yellow" coupe and trailer, ultimately setting a Guinness World Record. During the epic journey, Paige's world view is turned upside down, eventually leading her and her family to their ideal home in Singapore. On the road trip, she meets women from every walk of life, inspiring monks in China, boy soldiers in Angola and oppressive patriarchy in too many countries, yet she walks away with a profound faith in humankind. She now wants to pass the lessons from the road to her two daughters, to women everywhere and to all intrepid travellers.

Disclaimer- I only read part two of this travelogue which covers Paige & Jim‘s 16 months driving through Africa! The Roger‘s with little planning but a lot of hubris and apparently endless funds decide to drive through the entire continent of Africa. I was a little amazed how these two made it out alive, as they went places they had no business being & stumbled upon some dangerous scenarios. And who knew you could drive across Africa??

Librarybelle Great summary…it does make you think that they have endless funds for this journey 2y
