  • About CherylGypsyRose:

    In 2012 I had an epiphany. Life is short. I went on a three month backpacking trip to Eastern Europe, Turkey, Morocco etc with my son. I set my budget at fifty dollars per day even though that was a low ball figure according to the guidebooks.
    But using this budget enabled me to cover a lot of ground!!
    We had a rich, cultural experience on the cheap. If you think you cannot afford to travel, think again.
    In 2015 my sister and I traveled through China for 28 days - two grannies on a shoe string budget, yes, we had a great time.
    2016 - Spain and Portugal - the Iberian Penninsula in December
    2017 - Norway, Czech Republic, Germany, Serbia, Bosnia, Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, Macedonia, Kosovo, Malta and Spain - 78 days with only carry-on luggage - included two operas and a stint as volunteers teaching English in Spain. Fabulous - fjords, mountains, beaches, ancient ruins, trains, planes, buses and automobiles.
