The Gypsy Nesters (Episode 2)
Tessa and Amir… meet Dave and Veronica! They’re fun. They’re smart. And they’re kind of famous!
In Episode #2 our Open Nesters confront the concept of Gypsy Nesting with travel pro’s Dave and Veronica James… the self-proclaimed Gypsy Nesters. And they have a book and a lifestyle to back it up. They have become authorities on world travel, and have a plethora of delightful and engaging stories for us. These two exhibit a joie de vivre to beat the band. Rarely do you find two people with such a healthy approach to living.
Podcast Episode #2: The Gypsy Nesters
In the interview the Open and Gypsy Nesters cover a lot of ground. From jumping into a beat up (think $3,000 on ebay!) old motor home to “sailing the seven seas” on a modest sized boat the adventures abound. Once the kids graduated from college the world really opened up for Dave and Veronica. To make their adventures viable our intrepid gypsies turn to writing about their unique vagabond travel lifestyle. They turned their “now what” moment into an extremely lucrative business. And for the rest of the story… listen to the podcast by clicking on the play button above.
About Going Gypsy
Dave & Veronica are so accessible and fun, and their book will teach you how to get on the road and go for their dreams. About their book, the reviews are in:
“If you are tempted by the awakening of your own long-dormant wanderlust, Going Gypsy can serve as a primer. . . . The questions [Veronica] poses about ‘what next’ are relatable ones for all empty nesters.”—PBS‘s Next Avenue
“Any parents who have gotten through the launching stage of life with their sense of adventure (and humor) intact deserve our attention. They got mine! If I could be on the road again—and I guess we really all can—this is how I’d do it. An empty nest just means the kids have learned to fly. How nice to know the parents can too!” —Lenore Skenazy, author of the book and blog Free-Range Kids
“Warm, funny, clever, and inspiring—makes you see the fun in being empty-nested, whether you take to the road like David and Veronica or stay at home and reinvent your life with the sense of adventure they found on their journey.” —Linda F. Burghardt, PhD, author of The Happy Empty Nest
