Understand Newfoundland (hint: that’s how to pronounce it)

Whales, icebergs and Vikings all a-half-an-hour late out in The North Atlantic, but what else did we find in Newfoundland?

Magnificent vistas, mountains that rise right out of the sea, the freshest seafood imaginable, and the friendliest people anywhere in the world.

Join us as we explore this unique land on the edge of the continent by boat, motorhome, foot, and ATV… CONTINUE READING >>

Boy, Are We Everglade We Came Here!

Your GypsyNesters take on the Everglades – all good fun until a very uncomfortable Veronica gets her hands on an alligator!

We encountered gator wrestling, did some (really fast!) airboat riding and visited the smallest post office in the US.

And that’s just the beginning… CONTINUE READING >>

Easy to be Hard

While we are firm believers in a “take it easy” philosophy, we have never been standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona before. Call us wacky, we were pretty stoked about it.

The town of Winslow is pretty stoked, as well.
They built a little monument to the lyric, complete with a mural of a girl, my lord, in a flatbed Ford slowing down to take a look at the statue named “Standing On The Corner.” It’s painted as if it is a reflection in a plate glass window and really works. The mood is captured.

Let Us Run This Bayou

In Louisiana, the area south of I-10 and west of New Orleans is a “whole ‘nudder t’ing.” Over the years we’ve made periodic pilgrimages and would be hard-pressed to come up with a part of this great country that we are more fond of.
