taken the journey. Wishing you every success and happiness Dot!
on what to do and how to, I found her knowledge invaluable and hope to put it to good use. I took it as encouragement for older women to take the bull by the horns and do what it is that sets your heart on fire, thank you Dot.
I knew Dot before her journey...I followed her as she made her journey over difficult and washed-out roads, facing challenges and setbacks, triumphs and connections.
As vehicle parts, visas, weather and other obstacles appeared, she always managed to surmount them, with ingenuity, support, pure courage, persistence and a little luck. Maybe it was her belief, self-reliance and fortitude or maybe it was having a goal bigger than herself that made her never give up.
... With Dot’s vivid story-telling, you will feel like you were in the passenger seat with her all the way. If you want to take an epic adventure, celebrate victory after near-certain disaster, experience the scenery and people of Africa, but mostly feel the inspiration and resilience of a strong woman who would never give up, then this is the book for you.
Gripping…in the countless unpredictable travel/road conditions as well as encounters with people (officials & ordinary citizens).
Authentic…the author’s experiences of Africa during her travels are I unembellished but laid bare as they are.
Informative…interesting historical information is weaved in masterfully. I also learned several new vocabulary words!
Humorous…the humor is natural and unforced unexpectedly popping up in unlikely places.
And of course the book is inspirational in many ways.
If you want to get to know Africa better and understand the culture that is this beautiful, confusing and addictive continent ...this is the read for you.
A must for anyone who wants to hit the African roads (or lack there of )
Was a true pleasure to devour this book, page by page.
I just cant put the book down,shes such a good writer ❤️
This book really moved me, having been born in Zimbabwe and lived in South Africa, it made me quite nostalgic and homesick, but at the same time, it was so uplifting and joyful. Dot really brings the scenery to life and showcases the wonderful giving nature that lives in Africa´s people from North to South.
Reading this book I relished each sunrise and sunset, felt every pothole on the road, the anxiety of uncertainty, and the jubilation of each win.
Dot and Bluebell are such an inspiration.
