Traveling in the '70s

Traveling_in_the_70sIn the 1970s, the jumbo jet had just entered service and the global oil crisis was about to usher in the era of smaller cars. There was no internet, iPhone or satellite navigation.

Although many Americans’ first experience of foreign lands was Vietnam, the world at large seemed a safer place, despite the lack of seat belts and airline security. Young people loaded up their beater cars for road trips, travellers across America and Europe hitchhiked, and some followed The Hippie Trail across Asia.

In this entertaining and nostalgic special, traveler Dean Cycon shares how travel has changed over the past 50 years.
