Background History

It all started, in 1961, New Zealander John Anderson arrived in London ready to explore Europe. By himself and without much money, he devised a plan so that he would not have to travel alone (3). He put a deposit on a minibus, gathered a group of people to travel with, and spent 12 weeks exploring this Europe trip with his group.
