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.

We love nothing more than introducing you to inspiring travelers who share in our passion of discovery. 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. Just look through his blog, Dream Euro Trip, and walk away inspired to make your own dream trips a reality. Here, DJ shares all that he’s learned from his extensive travels over the years. 

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.

#WanderableGypset: The Broke Backpacker

Camel 1024x767 #WanderableGypset: The Broke Backpacker

Will, the Broke Backpacker, is a self-described “wandering adventurer, travel writer and amateur photographer.” Although, judging from his photos below, we’d like to call his bluff on the “amateur.” He starts his bio on his well-trafficked site by saying, “I like to get muddy, naked and painted.” He has lived in India for a year, worked on bars in Vietnam, herded goats in the Holy Land and conquered the highest navigable pass in the world armed with a poorly drawn map and a packet of ritz crackers. Will insists that if you know how to travel cheap, you really can travel forever, and his beautiful blog generously teaches you the tricks of his trade. We had to interview him for our Gypset series, for obvious reasons, and he graciously obliged.

On this #TravelTuesday, we caught up with Mike and Anne (also known as HoneyTrek), two American newlyweds who thought a one week honeymoon wasn’t nearly enough to celebrate a new life together.  They quit their jobs, rented their apartment, and set out on a 675 day honeymoon around the world. They’ve been featured in Conde Nast Traveler, Mail Online, The Los Angeles Times, and now, the Wanderable Blog! We’re obsessed with these two: they truly embody everything we’re about. Read on to hear about their incredible journey, their travel essentials, which Wanderable experience they would love to try, and how they really travel for adventure, and live for love.
