Ready for another edition of Her Sparkle’s What to Pack!? This time we are going {or dreaming of going} to Thailand ūüôā

When packing for Thailand it’s ALL about bright colors & prints. These pretty prints will be perfect for Thailand’s gorgeous beaches. It’s important to note that Thailand is a modest country so don’t go overboard with any skin bearing outfits. Also, the basic rule for Thai temples is to cover your shoulders so the printed wrap would be a welcome edition to your packing list! xx

 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.

Fall colors of Rouen offset the gothic spectacle¬†that is the city’s main Cathedral

Ah, Normandy. We’re completely¬†obsessed with your whimsical small towns,¬†cobblestone streets, and strong apple liquor.¬†¬†And there is no¬†better way to see these towns than by bike. We traveled to Rouen and Les Andelys, and we were able to see more of each town than we would have by foot. We’ve decided there might not be anything¬†more luxurious than Europe in the Fall: the colors, the crisp air…getting lost down side streets…and hidden-treasure¬†alleyways¬†with the one you love.

On Monday we were in Rouen: a lovely town that has the second largest population in France, next to Paris. ¬†Even though there are tons of people, be warned: most of the town is closed on Monday until the afternoon (after 3pm). ¬†This was both a good and bad thing. The Good: we got the town to ourselves, so we didn’t have to watch out for pedestrians as we cruised down cobblestone streets and took¬†literally 1,000 photos. The Bad: we were hard-pressed to find an open fromagerie (we were successful, however, in finding a patisserie, so at least we were set with many croissants). There is a ton of history in this town (like the Cathedral and a memorial to Joan of Arc)¬†so we did do our fair share of Instagram- worthy¬†sight-seeing.
