Wanderer Weekly #25 – Kibbutz to Cyprus to Lebanon
It’s week 25 of Stevie Wander’s year-long journey on the hippy trail from 50-years ago. Our intrepid hippie wanderer is on the move as his weeks-long stay in Israel draws to an end. After a final night of partying and good times at the Kibbutz he sets off on the road. Hitch hiking to the port city of Haifa with his traveling companion Lynn. They leave Israel with a short plane trip to the island of Cyprus. They experience some funny escapades with local Turks on Cyprus, a broken down car, and too much booze for Stevie. Then a final goodbye with Lynn. Back on his own, Stevie gets an overnight ride on a small cargo ship to the Levant mainland and Beirut, Lebanon. Come hear the stories of this weekly 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.
