Overland from London to Kathmandu – 1972-1973
This was made from the complete set 225 of color slides taken on my first solo trip abroad at age 19. With about $1200 in my pocket and my only guide, a page from the Original Whole Earth Catalog I had gotten for Christmas the year before, I flew on Pan Am to London and hitchhiked through Belgium, Germany, Austria, and Italy. I then took a ship to Greece, flew to Turkey and traveled overland through Iran, Afghanistan, through the Khyber Pass to Pakistan and India and finally arrived in Nepal where I left on a 3 week trek to the Base Camp of Everest. A fascinating adventure!
