Wanderer Weekly #49 – Iran to Turkey
It’s week 49 of Stevie Wander’s year-long journey on the Hippie Trail from 50-years ago. This week we find him on the move from Iran to Turkey. The people of Iran are quite intense so Stevie finds the travel a little rough at times. He makes it through Iran mostly on a train. Then it’s bus rides and hitchhiking the rest of the way as he crosses the border into Turkey. Stevie makes his way to Trabzon on the Black Sea. Come hear more of the exciting stories of this once-in-a-lifetime 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.
