  • While the overland route from Istanbul to Kathmandu in the 1960s and early 1970s is mainly remembered as the "hippie trail", Michael H.C. Baker's travelogue Journey to Kathmandu represents what was in fact a more typical demographic among English-speaking travellers: fairly conventional young people trying to get to and from Australia cheaply. In March 1967, Baker set out as a driver in a convoy of three covered lorries (trucks) that formerly belonged to the army. Carrying 46 passengers, they travelled for several weeks through France, Italy, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. Baker's text is accompanied by several black and white photographs, a few somewhat crude drawings based on photographs, as well as maps of Europe and the Middle East/South Asia with the convoy's route. A three month journey to Nepal
