1. The GypsyNesters Take On South America with Road Scholar

    Boomer bloggers David and Veronica James, aka the GypsyNesters, are now live-blogging their way through South America on the Road Scholar Adventures Afloat program, “The Galapagos and Peru: From Enchanted Islands to the Lost City of the Incas.” And they’re bringing with them their unique brand of educational, entertaining and lighthearted style of blogging. One look at their Getting Ready video and you’ll know you’re in for an incredibly fun and insightful adventure with the GypsyNesters on board.

    All packed and ready to knock some items off their bucket list!

    David and Veronica’s mission with their popular blog is to bust the myth of the Empty Nest Syndrome and show Boomers and beyond that life after kids or retirement can be full of meaningful adventures and discovery. As the Huffington Post put it in a Post 50 front page article about David and Veronica in January of this year: “They are best-known as the GypsyNesters — the married-for-almost-three-decades couple who gave up their brick-and-mortar home for a virtual home on the road. They are semi-retired boomers who roam the globe full-time, approaching each day as an adventure and celebrating the freedom of being unshackled from the responsibilities of parenthood.”

    Now through June 17th, the GypsyNesters will be live-blogging their adventures through the enchanting Galapagos Islands, Ecuador and Peru, with stops at the World Heritage Site of Machu Picchu, Darwin’s Bay, and many other incredible destinations along the way. They’ll be learning about and reporting on everything from the rich variety of amazing and unique creatures on the Galapagos, to the history and culture of the regions they explore, to the bountiful authentic cuisine they’ll be sampling throughout their journey.  

    You can tag along on the GypsyNester’s South American odyssey in three different and exciting ways: on their blog, on their Twitter feed, and through their Facebook page. No matter which way you follow them, you’ll be in for the adventure of a lifetime.
