Wanderer Weekly #22 – Israel’s Red Sea, Eilat, & Environs

It’s week 22 in the yearlong adventure of the intrepid hippie “Stevie Wander”, fifty years ago this week. We find him wandering in southern Israel along the coastline of the Red Sea. He enjoys the spectacular merging of land and sea—from the majestic mountains to the sandy shores of the beaches and crystalline blue waters of the sea. Stevie and his companion, Lynn, enjoy the freedom and relaxation of the scene, from a romantic time in an alcove of a fjord on the Red Sea, to the bustling town of Eilat, to visiting a shanty community of hippies along a dried up river bed, known as the Waadi. Come along and experience the ongoing adventure!

Co-author Steve Reifman celebrates the 50th anniversary of the ultimate hippy trail journey. His adventure, the inspiration for the book Wanderer co-written with F.T. Burke, took him across four continents through 26 countries in 1970-1971. Now, on the Golden Anniversary of his adventure, Steve Reifman – or “Stevie Wander,” as he likes to be called – tells the true tales behind the story.
