You might love them, hate them or even can ignore them, but do they give a damn to what you perceive about their lifestyle, hair do and clothing mixed with the endless grass and pot sessions? The answer is well assumable! They can be seen everywhere and anywhere celebrating life within themselves in complete trance and self sufficiency.
We are not asking you to leave your home, your fancy career and be a hippie. But, these free souls can be seen in some excellent parts of the world. They are almost synonymous with those places and contribute to its collective charm. Goa in India is one of those places where the old Portuguese aura mixes with a carnival like atmosphere thereby attracting the roving lot to its sandy beaches. The hippie culture blending with an Indian touch is something to be experienced.
Fly to the birthplace of raves- Ibiza in Spain. Stroll along its walking trails and be amidst the unique architecture that makes it a World Heritage site! You will come across the carefree hippies all around. Mix with them for a change and get an off the hook insight on life.
Okay, now some real deal- marijuana (it is legal in some parts of the world, so please avoid any universal taboo). What about a place having a Hemp Embassy that provides information on the use of marijuana with some valuable inputs? Cool, right? Here comes Nimbin, a tiny hamlet in the state of New South Wales of Australia. Apart from the hippie culture other attractions that might interest you is its inter cultural looks and sun rise at Mount Warning.
The village of Caratingui is the first hippie hide out in Brazil. And considering the worldwide image of this south American nation, this village along with its nearby Arembepe comes calling in a toxic way. A tropical hub, alive beats, open sky and an USP of being Mick Jagger's favoured getaway- all these should be enough reasons to be here!
So, let the spirit take a flight and try to steal a vacation to live like a free bird in these places...hippie ways!
