We never pass up the chance to chat with inspiring and ambitious young gypsets who are passionate about all things travel. Tyler Govaars, the fabulous blogger of The Weekend Edit is here to share her wanderings with us. She has traveled near and far to over 32 countries! YUP. Basically, she’s everything we aspire to be. Read on for more fun facts {hint: being detained in Thailand}. 

How did you become a gypset? Was traveling always something you were interested in?

I think I’ve always had a bit of the gypset mentality. Growing up I spent a lot of time in Lake Tahoe exploring and spent summers at Ghost Ranch outside of Abiquiu New Mexico with my extended family. During the day the adults would take workshops like ceramics, poetry and painting and the kids would hike and explore the vast New Mexico landscape. I’m drawn to adventure and feel a strong pull to nature, which fuels a lot of my wandering. Travel is the biggest source of inspiration in my everyday life.

Today, we’re shining the spotlight on DJ, who is not only an immensely well-traveled gypsetter (seriously, he’s traveled through almost 150 cities in 25 European countries!), but also a mentor for fellow wanderers.

Walk me through and average day in your un-average life.

This is so difficult to answer as I do different things everyday depending if I’m on the road or back home planning my next adventures. But usually my average day would be waking up, eating breakfast, answering emails and updating my social media pages. I would then write a bit and work on my clients since I help plan eurotrips for my readers and help them get that dreaded Schengen visa. I am also currently learning German so I spend around 2 hours of my day learning about the German language with my teacher via Skype. At night I would either be hanging out with friends or throwing dinner parties at home or just spending a quiet time watching movies with my partner.

 What is a Gypset?:

A gypset is a gypsy-jetsetter, a free spirit who is young and heart and leads an unconventional career and life, traveling the globe and wandering through life at her own pace, in her own style. For more detail, check out this post, and this one AND this one-  and of course stay tuned here to peek into the lives of Wanderable’s favorite people to follow.

Who is Kylee (and her fellow Wanderer/husband, Steve)

Kylee and Steve are literally professional travelers. After growing up in sunny Palm Springs, California and studying at University of San Diego, Kylee found herself getting married to the love of her life and moving across the world to Germany for Steve’s job.  Now loving her life as a “Hausfrau,” the two of them are all about collecting moments (not things!) as they jet set their way across Europe, Asia, and beyond.  Together, they have been to over 30 countries on 4 continents in 6 years (and have some really fun facts for how to fly first class, every time).  We picked her brain on what its like being an American living abroad, the best thing she’s recently eaten, and whats on her (growing) bucket list.
