It’s week 52 of Stevie Wander’s year-long journey on the Hippie Trail from 50-years ago. This week we find him on the move from Zurich, Switzerland to Amsterdam, Netherlands. Steve hitches a ride from Zurich to Basel, where he spends a few days enjoying the town. Then its back on the road again. He hitches a long ride through Germany until the driver’s car breaks down. Once the car is repaired, they continue their journey to Antwerp, Belgium. From here Stevie Wander takes a train to Amsterdam where he purchases a ticket for a plane ride home to America. The year-long wandering journey is coming to a close. 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.
