Part nostalgic hippie memoir and part travel guide, Inese Civkulis’s fictionalized odyssey begins in Summer of Love Berkeley with a young woman -- Nebraska-born, raised Catholic, and in love for the first time -- discovering the delights and perils of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. But always at the heart of the adventure is a rocky love story, the relationship flowing and ebbing across eighteen countries in six years, as the pun-loving global explorer sets out in 1970 with her boyfriend Ben along the Hippie Trail through Asia.

Inese is as effervescent and intrepid a backpacking companion as Kerouac himself might have wished for! In fact, it could be said that ON THE ROAD meets EAT PRAY LOVE in this ebullient memoir-- with bits of TRAVELS WITH CHARLEY thrown in—the witty parts. As Inese and her not-always-true love embrace adventures ranging from the thrill of living rent-free in a centipede-infested hut on Tonga to life-and-death on a Balinese beach, the once easily intimidated young woman unearths downright heroic strength. She may struggle to keep up on a Mount Everest trek, but she is the one who continues CPR on a seemingly lifeless drowning victim when everyone else has given up. 

Whether you’re re-living your own Sixties adventures, whether you’ve already trekked the globe, or you’re a Generation Z longing for your first visa stamps, Come Dream With Me is the armchair voyager’s dream-come-true.
