Back in early 1977 my life had sort of fallen apart. Boring job, failed marriage, and a failed attempt to buy a cabin in the woods in Mendocino, California. Inspired by a travel article in Stewart Brand's Whole Earth Catalog, I quit my job and took the cabin purchase down payment and started off on a trip around the world. My plan was to head to London where I'd pick up one of the then-popular overland expeditions to Kathmandu.
I ended up staying in England a month traveling a bit and working on a farm a while; just waiting for the overland trip (run by Exodus Expeditions) to begin. The overland trip took about 100 days. Following that I traveled mostly alone spending the rest of my time in Asia. Presented here are just a few photos from that year of travel.
