Seven Months Around the World: ‘Travels With My Wife’

November 10, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:35 pm

Join Robert Downes and Jeannette Wildman on Tuesday, November 10 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. to share a digital video adventure, “Seven Months Around the World” at the Rochester Hills Public Library.

The couple are the authors of the new book, Travels With My Wife, and will be signing copies at the event. Look for laughs, adventure, and great travel ideas at their presentation! For Bob and Jeannette, backpacking around the world meant being together virtually every minute for seven months in the heat and dust of foreign cities, tropical jungles and the ramshackle trains and buses of 13 exotic countries.

Downes and Wildman saved up for four years to make the trip, which celebrated her retirement after 30 years as a day care provider. With a budget of $166 per day, their adventures included hiking for six days through the mountains of Tasmania, bicycling through Tuscany and the islands of Croatia, traveling through the recent war zone of Sri Lanka, and much more.

Registration is required and open to those with a Rochester Hills Public library card. To register go to the Events Calendar at www.RHPL.org or call 248-656-2900. The Rochester Hills Public Library is located in downtown Rochester two blocks east of Main Street off of University Drive on Olde Towne Road. For more information, please call 248-650-7124.
