"I choose life love compassion what will you choose" Gypsystravels's Profile

Life's too short to live everyday exactly the same


“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, or worn. It is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace & gratitude.”

Denis Waitley~~


For this Gypsy exploration is the essence of her human spirit, so I shall go forward and explore
~~ Janet A.~~

I love my past, I love my present. I am not ashamed of what I have had, and I am not sad because I no longer have it
~~Sidonie Gabrielle Collette~~

Life is truly known only to those who suffer, lose, endure adversity and stumble from defeat to defeat.
~~Anais Nin~~

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all. Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature.
~~Helen Keller~~

There is something in November sets the gypsy blood astir, we must rise and follow her; When from every hill of flame, She calls and calls each vagabond by name
~~ William Bliss Carman~~


"The strenght of our spirituality is determined by our tratement of other people and other animals"

    The "Gypsy" travels to the "Marilyn Room!" :-) Great opening pic! Mi casa es su casa! I am salivating at the sight of your new travel pages! What a wonderful adventure you had and so happy you finally experienced the beauty of Africa! Lucky you got to touch ground on the land before we lost the Great Mandela. I'l be back to check for more updates! (and Galapagos too! Oh my!)

      The "Marilyn Room" was o so devine, as a Geisha would have it. I couldn't stop taking selfies :) I hope I have time to work on my Galapagos pages before I gear up for my "trips" to Asia...It's gonna be fun, fun, fun...and, of course a trip to a sunny warm beach with my "love" can't come soon enough. Can't wait to see you guys again, hopefully before the "special day"
