The Escape Committee

£9.99

Bored of travel? Want something more this summer? Why not try a little time travel?

All it took was a journal and some old photographs, next thing I’m in fifty-year-old car bound for Syria and Jordan, guided only by the heavy typeset of my mother’s diary from 1967. Mum kept a record of their journey across Europe in the Summer of Love, as they trundled through a continent struggling to get back on its feet after the war. The trip had been a defining moment in their lives and, without even being born yet, mine too.

Bored of travel? Want something more this summer? Why not try a little time travel?

All it took was a journal and some old photographs, next thing I’m in fifty-year-old car bound for Syria and Jordan, guided only by the heavy typeset of my mother’s diary from 1967. Mum kept a record of their journey across Europe in the Summer of Love, as they trundled through a continent struggling to get back on its feet after the war. The trip had been a defining moment in their lives and, without even being born yet, mine too.

A rainy Sunday afternoon saw the discovery of both the Kodachrome photographs and dog-eared journals. Curiosity engulfed me. The plan was simple enough – find yourself an antique car, snatch up the journals and head off in search of the towns and villages from 1967. Had any of that romance survived the tsunami of package tour development?
