Calcutta to London on £10
Christmas 1959, Calcutta. Gerry is stranded in the Salvation Army Hostel. He meets Geoff, an eccentric loner. Only a few pounds between them. How to get to Europe overland? No money for a plane; no internet; no social media; no guide books; no useful maps; no ATMs; no clear options. Across Asia to Europe by land. But how? There are no hippies, no Hippie Trail. Nobody will even hear about hippies for another five or six years. It’s all a bit chancy, really. But they give it a go.
