"Gypset is an amalgamation of the whimsical ways of the gypsy, and the structure and sophistication of the jetset."
How freaking GENIUS is that!
What is it about travel that sparks our voltage?
What is it about this thing that we do – that we dream, crave, ache to do – that has us swooning at the very thought of packing a bag, and stepping on board a plane, and sipping in the sights, smells and sounds of places far away....
Anticipation. Uncertainty. Expansion. Defiance. Adventure.
Travel is intoxicating in nature.
Sometimes uncomfortable. Sometimes ecstatic. Always stretching, in one way or another.
And seeing as the first iteration of this blog – which was once called Such Different Skies – was at its core, a travel blog, it gives me great pleasure to walk down memory lane with you today.
Let's kick this off by pressing play:
So that's my story, and it's a story of beginnings; a story of getting my ass, somehow, on a plane, all those years ago. There were backpacker hostels, nutritionally void but delightfully cheap two minute noodles, $5 bottle of red wine (!) and – as I mentioned – maxed out credit cards.
Today, my version of travel looks very different.
Often, business-class flights are involved.
I've skyped clients from an apartment in LA in between attending personal growth events and hot yoga.
I wrote the first chapter of my book in Bali, immersing myself in the healing heart of Ubud for twenty-eight days.
I set up the foundation of my new network marketing business in Japan, while sipping green tea, watching the snow pile high outside.
Both are beautiful, and perfect.
The backpacking, with it's adrenaline and faith-building qualities of winging it and going with the flow. It ignites our inner gypsy.
And the luxe of shuffling through time-zones in comfort, revelling in the greater world and making money by yourself, for yourself. It actives our inner jetset.
"Imagine you had 2 powerful mentors, and a whole tribe of like-minded and like-hearted gyp-setting sisters, who had your back (and your front), while you massage your growing business into a spectacular: location, time and lifestyle-individualised adventure vehicle.
And then imagine these 6 months preceding the biggest leap of all – the one you’ve dreamed about. Taking your beautiful, budding and now location-individualised business into the great wild – an on adventure with your mentors and fellow Gypsetters for an arresting, 3-day International Retreat kicking off your Gypset life with ease, fun, and style.
This could be you in 6 short, potent months."
