Testimonial from Authors - Gyspy Nesters

“Jack and Carrie have made an art out of snowbirding. In Another Cocktail Please they share their expertise in escaping the harsh Canadian winters for warmer climates. Of course they cover the big stuff such as choosing a destination and finding a long term rental, health insurance, bank cards, and using your phone, but through their years of experience they have also learned to look for things most of us would never think of, like backing up your computer files, or finding your medication in a foreign land, or will you need to bring towels and bedding to your little slice of paradise?

This is the ultimate resource for anyone looking at long term travel, covering the home you are leaving behind and the home you are headed for. There are tips on ways to assimilate into your new temporary home, avoiding almost every headache that could arise, and even how to make a perfect Margarita. Handy check lists and helpful websites are included to make sure you don’t forget anything as you follow in their footsteps to becoming seasonal nomads.” – David and Veronica James authors of  Going Gypsy.

We aspire to travel the world and share our message,so I am grateful to learn so many little tips; what to do, what not to do, how to be safe and really enjoy every adventure and immerse yourself in the culture of every place you travel. Most important for me was to read about the incredible places Jack and Carrie traveled and to know that this kind of amazing lifestyle is truly possible. I love the line, “We have been brave enough to step outside the box and exist free in the way that we want to.” I LOVE that. I want to be brave and step outside the box.
