Europe, 1963



While I was travelling through Europe in 1963, I bought patches Ė cloth badges mounted on felt Ė in almost every country I visited. I donít know what I intended to do with them (I do know, though, that I never sewed them onto a backpack or a campfire blanket), but Iíve at last found a use for them: scanned copies of the patches I bought are being used in this web-album to help illustrate the route of my travels. As this picture shows, my travels began in the Netherlands.
