    Why and how did everyone start traveling?

    1978- 6 weeks holiday, teenagers with a tight income but Qantas had a very cheap return airfare to Frankfurt. 3 of us took off with our good value Eurail pass and train guide and Doing Europe on $10 a day book. Slept in youth hostels and overnight trains and a few times got offered beds (and accepted) by friendly people we met along the way. The fellow travellers fell out once or twice with our young tantrums but really were good companions for new experiences.The museums, the food, the wine, the landscape all fantastic and awe-inspiring to surburban Queenslanders who had only ever been to the beach. Travelled to many places since but it is always the memory of meeting marvellous people that makes travelling special. over 8 years ago
