Book Review: Gypset Travel

16 May 2013 0


Hello there my friends! I am back after a whirlwind of travels – from Paris to the Provence, the French Riviera, back to Paris, then Munich and then Berlin. Phew, what an itinerary! Well you can imagine that it was beyond beautiful and inspiring (more about my trips soon on the blog). I took my recent travels as a good reason to present you a book I’ve recently bought upon recommendation by my friend and fellow blogger Olivia. ‘Gypset Travel’ appealed to me by its title alone as I consider myself a savvy traveler.

‘Gypset Travel’ is a travel diary by New York based journalist Julia Chaplin that delves into the glamorous bohemian world of artists, designers, and bons vivants through intimate photography and personal anecdotes. It takes us on an inspiring voyage to little-known enclaves around the globe and mixes fashion, interiors and travels into a magical concoction of a bohemian lifestyle.

‘Gypset’ is a term defined by the author Julia Chaplin as an unconventional, bohemian approach to life. It is characterized by a fashionable exoticism and a down-to-earth ease. It thus combines the wiles  of a gypsy with the sophistication of the jet set. 

So whether you’re a boho traveler, a gypsy inside or a style savvy jet setter, this book will take you on an inspiring trip to enchanting places by highlighting the beauties on the go and gathering inspiration for your home. 

As you can see on my pics I dove into the book over a freshly brewed cup of coffee and got myself taken away to new and unseen places. And after my last sip of coffee the lingering taste confirmed – I am a little ‘gypset’ traveler myself.

    Welcome back and thank you for sharing – that book looks fantastic! I used to travel and explore lots of different and exotic places before I had children – after that a lot less, and I miss it!
