Another recollection on a couple of trips in mid seventies...from Pudding Shop to Amir Kabir to Sigi\'s to to the guest house above the Pig Street...........
Good memories, sorry, I should have seen more, but on the hippie trail it was a happy \"childhood\".

Glad there are blogs around to think back about those times.

We zijn een groep boeren en burgers die zeer geinteresseerd zijn in het doen en laten van de wolf. En met name in de problemen die het dier geeft. Met name het verscheuren van (landbouw)huisdieren.

Leuk om een de foto\'s van iemand te zien die ook de hippy-trail heeft gedaan. We zijn een uitstervend ras. Nog een paar jaar en er is niemand die uit eigen ervaring kan spreken.

Dag Hans,

Ik werd gewezen op jouw website over de waterlopen in Den Haag en omgeving. Ik ben met name geïnteresseerd in de Broeksloot, waar de tuinderij \'het Paradijs\' van mijn grootvader (Theodorus van Veen) aan lag. Ik ben bezig met een familieverhaal en ik heb inmiddels 5 schilderijen opgespoord van het Paradijs.
Kun je mij iets meer vertellen over het schilderij waar jij naar verwijst?
Alvast hartelijk dank. Bettie van Veen

I was on the overland classic Hippie Trail in 1970 from London to Kashmir. The bus broke down in Turkey and I completed the rest of the journey by local transport.

I was later, in 1979, so at the end of the phenomenon.

But I have recently looked at some photos I had digitised from my travels in Nepal and India in 1979 and into 1982 (after a computer crash forced me to go through decades of computer records!) and I have just started looking for a forum/website where travellers from the 60’s 70s and early 80s post pictures of themselves and the people they met, to try and hook up again - even for a brief exchange - simply to relive the joy and innocence of those times, even if it is just a brief sentimental indulgence. I don’t have a lot of photos (as you say, it wasn’t cool then to view life through a lens, which kids these days don’t understand) but there are some people who I wouldn’t mind saying Hi to…even if just once.

Are you aware of any kind of forum where that happens?

Love your website Hans. I did the hippie trial twice once during 1975 and during 1978 during a gap year. Most important and developmental event of my life. been working since 1982 which is interrupting my travels. Soon to retire and hit the road again. Unfortunately the hippie trail is too dangerous now so it will have to be SE Asia.

tot ziens Hans

Thank you for the memories. Left New York City in January \'73, went overland to Kathmandu, occasional public transport, sometimes freak buses. Drifted into SE Asia, took a ship to Perth, drove to Cairns and Melbourne, island hopped to Chile (with a week in Easter Island), took buses home via Argentina and Peru, Panama, Belize, returned in October tired, ill, stressed and thrilled with a lifetime of memories. And never again did I trust what governments said about what was happening in the world..

Eventually got a doctorate in geography but found little work--too cynical. Happily married, children, grandchildren too. Still travel rough when I can (bus from the Dominican Republic to Haiti when I was 61). China, Albania, Tunisia...still going. And every now and then think of the light as the sun set and I stood on the balcony of the Amir Kabir hotel in Tehran, or what it was like driving with a local friend into the northern mountains of Afghanistan, and I remember a world that was.

Traveled from Feb 1, 1968 to April 20, 1969. Ethiopa, europe, overland through India, Burma, Thailand, Malaysia. A transformative experience. Except for visiting a peace corps friend in Adi Caieh, Eritrea for 3 months, I had no idea where the next destination would lead.

Hi Hans, my name is Yuqi Kang, I am a documentarian based on New York City. I am currently working on a documentary about a story of a group of Afghan teens who live together and work on peace campaign in Kabul. Among the group of thirty young Afghan peacekeepers , the oldest is at his late twenty, and the youngest is thirteen years ago; none of them have ever seen nor experienced the peaceful days in Afghanistan, as the country has been torn apart in the last 35 years. I am wondering if I can speak with you sometime in the near future, and possibly talk about your experience in Afghanistan and how it was like back then. Around May in this year, I will visit the kids in Kabul so I can share your story with them. Thank you so much for your time, looking forward to hear back from you!

Very nice pictures on your website, Hans. You may enjoy viewing the photos that I have posted on facebook. I left the USA at the age of 19 wanting to travel in Europe, and ended up going to Nepal and back on the trail. Of course, the journey changed my life. Thank you, Hans, for sharing your trip.
