“Gypsetters are artists, designers, and bon vivants who live and work around the globe.”
That’s how author and New York Times journalist Julia Chaplin described people with free spirits who trek to global destinations while keeping a laid-back luxe lifestyle. I don’t normally favor labels, but I don’t hate this one.
Jeremy and I have always been kinda unconventional, we don’t follow the set rules or subscribe to tons of societal norms. But over the years without realizing it, we’d worked our way squarely into the traditional house/car/job version of success.
Then, we gave it all up.
Now, we travel full-time in a down-to-earth, high/low freelance style, spending stretches of time in whatever place captures our imagination. It’s an alternative way of living, one that’s based more on happiness and creative inspiration rather than possessions or money.
In a nutshell, I’m trying to climb Kilimanjaro, not the corporate ladder.
On our journey, we’re accompanied by two carry-on suitcases, Jer’s bright orange backpack, and a long-haired chihuahua named Lilly with her own passport. Our days are spent meditating, writing, eating, podcasting, laughing, and dreaming of a long, full life spent chasing the sun.
