Japan to England by Hitchhike, 1999 - photos
(Mon 1 Mar 1999 to Wed 10 Nov 1999, 23 photos)

In 1999, I travelled from Japan, where I had been working for five years, back to my home in Cambridge, England. I took the slow route - hitchhiking through Asia, bought a second-hand digital camera and a second-hand computer, and took lots of photos. The aim was to see the beautiful places in south-east Asia, culminating in the Taj Mahal. There are lots of interesting tales in the diaries.
