  2. Amazing blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a
    paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any ideas? Thank you!

  10. We are looking at RV’s for living in MI summers & TN and FL winters. Would you recommend & where can we purchase the cheapest RV-solar powered (also battery, electric & propane)? Possibly travel trailer vs motor home. Thank you for any help you can provide?

    1. Sounds good. We never used solar so don’t have any suggestions on that. We went with the motorhome because it was easier for moving around a lot. If you are going to be staying in one place for longer periods a trailer might be a good option. All the best in your travels.

  11. Hi! You are terrific role models! We just started our retirement travels in 2105 and blog in August of 2015. We just spent 4 months in South America and I am in the process of writing about that trip. We were in Ecuador and feel terrible about the devasation.
    I am wondering how you got the tripadvisor publicity. Also what did it take to write for companies like Choice hotels?

  12. Hi David and Veronica, my name is Ian Jacobs and I’m the lead content writer for Resonance Consultancy, a research and strategy agency based in Vancouver & New York. We are releasing our latest report, the Portrait of the U.S. Retiree Traveler, outlining the demographics travel and accommodation preferences and future trends.

    Were wondering if you’d like to be added to our mailing list so you can see our findings. It’s a free report based on our surveys of 1,147 travelers over 65 in the U.S.

    Many of our previous reports on Millennials, Luxury travel and Chinese travelers have been picked up by the Economist, Bloomberg, and the Wall Street Journal.

    If this is something that interests you, please let me know and we’ll be sure to add you to our database.

    Thanks
    Ian

  13. Came across Going Gypsy and GypsyNester while doing research on Gypsies in the Balkans.
    You’ve done something quite inspirational. I must read book. You also seem to have covered even more of the globe than I have.
    Are you ever in the Balkans?
    Actually we made a kind of empty-nester/sell business move ten years ago – but nowhere near as gutsy as yours – and I now write books about it (rather lightweight I’m afraid).
    Do come and stay if you are ever passing this way. Fascinating place. Have a look at my website to see where we are.
    Anthony.

  14. Hey David and Veronica,
    Living the dream — with style and humor. So happy for all your great publicity. Well deserved!
    Josie

  15. Congratulations! But you guys aren’t seniors yet by the looks of it, hope these Seniors awards not making you feel old!
    Keep up the good work!
    Frank (bbqboy)

  16. Way to go guys! I remember when and it’s so exciting to see you up and going in full swing. I always believed you’d do it. Keep on enjoying life. Others have so much to learn from you!

  17. Well done, you deserve all your recognition. So pleased to have helped in a small way to take your story international. Keep travelling and inspiring us! Ceri x

  18. You've worked hard to deserve those accolades. Congratulations. And thanks for mentioning My Itchy Travel Feet, The Baby Boomer's Guide To Travel. We baby boomer travel bloggers are powerful when we stick together.

  19. Thanks all! Life is good. 😉

    @Mike Your website is a hoot! We seem to fight less and less as we get older – but we had some doozies when we were hot tempered youngsters! Veronica liked to throw things at me for "stress relief"! When we first took off on the road, we had a few regarding traveling styles, but have made adjustments and seem to have found a groove! -David
