I’m a Hippie – Spek
The Hippie Movement was a Counterculture movement that really took off in the mid 1960’s originally as a Youth movement in the USA, spreading worldwide. It’s origins stretch far back in time though. To this day this era in history is viewed with great nostalgia due to the amazing musical talent that emerged during this time, the fashions, the freedom, the anti-war and pro-peace ethos, love of nature, the travel, the spirituality, psychedelic drugs, art and sense of community. An iconic time.
