Back in the 60's uncle Jan, an uncle of my girl, left for an extensive trip roaming the planet. He left a diary about this experience.

Unfortunately the man passed away shortly after his return. There is almost no visual footage of his travels.

In December of this year we are going to redo a part of his trip to be able to add pictures, our experience and our time-frame to his diary.

We are going to follow his trail from Delhi, India to Kathmandu, Nepal.

The bags in the picture represent the two lives that are connected in one route, one trail to follow. The old and the new

In the story Uncle Jan.
