What is a Gypsetter?
A compound word made from gypsy and jet-setter dedicated to people who have a bohemian soul with worldly sensibilities. For us it’s about embracing global culture and travel in our daily lives, reminding ourselves that the world does not revolve around us, but it is us who must roam the world – whether physically, mentally or spiritually. The Gypsetter does not see the world as an outsider looking in but rather is always right in the middle of things. Getting lost in side streets, indulging in local delicacies and melting into infinite moments.
As per the Urban Dictionary “Fusing the ease and carefree lifestyle of a gypsy with the sophistication of the jet set, the Gypsetters are artists, surfers, designers, and bons vivants who live and work around the globe, from Uruguay and Ibiza, to Montauk, New York. The book ‘Gypset Style’ by Julia Chaplin explores the unconventional, wanderlust lives of these high-low cultural nomads and the bohemian enclaves they inhabit, as well as their counterculture forbears, such as the Victorian explorers, the Lost Generation, the Beatniks, and the hippies.”
How did we start?
We were chatting for more than an hour on the phone, lamenting about how much we miss being creative. How our lives have been caught up in everything practical and logical. The Gypsetters Net was born out of our desire to fully embrace the dreamers in us. It’s aspirational, inspirational and a wonderful outlet for us to share our gypsetting experiences and innate wanderlust.
How do we come up with our Gypsetter Guides?
We don’t claim to be the definitive or the exhaustive guide to destinations, in fact, we try to keep things on a very personal level, drawing from our own experiences and research. We also trust our contributors and pre-select them with care. We believe in our instincts and in theirs hoping to share with you a base of recommendations from which you can build your own travel itinerary.

We are two friends who were former magazine editors. Having moved onto other things, we both realized that the creative flow the publishing world used to offer us was missing from our lives. Armed with a common love of travel to the exotic and familiar, a penchant for the bohemian, an obsession with food and a lust for writing, we decided to collaborate our unique and fashionable journeys through life together in one passion project.
We are The Gypsetters.
