GYPSY MUSIC and Vintage GYPSY Photos

I have long been fascinated with the old Romantic notion of the Gypsies and the old style caravans and the stories of people on the move. Their lifestyles, their stories and folklore, their fashions, their music, their culture and their restless spirits. Those old style caravans really call to me and I feel as if I have Wanderlust in my blood and am happiest on the road. Sometimes I prefer the journey to the destination. In fact it’s the journey I like. (Unless I’m in an aeroplane, don’t like flying!)

In the modern world people are busy moving from A to B. And even people who are taking a vacation often fly quickly from one destination to another. I suppose cause of time limits. In an ideal world I would like to travel by Land and Sea and live in the moment and be immersed in nature as much as possible. It is the point between A and  B I want to see! The “Journey” is as much about travelling as the “Destination”.

  1. I too find their life style fascinating, not so much the new age gypsies. They had such a wanderlust. Funny you posted this I’m in the process of writing a poem about them. The photos are inspiring.

    1. Interesting that you are writing a Gypsy poem. Yes enchanting photos. Old photography had a certain magical soulful quality that’s captivating. I like New Age Travellers too and any kind of travellers! But the old style caravans are the most exquisite and ornate. Looking forward to reading your poem. 🙂
