Helping others get in the field and organizing events is fun. I am a trained event planner and love going on weekend trips! By being a part of the Gypsy community, I am not only teaching others but learning from their experiences daily. In addition, I hope that I can promote the fact that no traveler is ever alone as long as they are part of the Caravan”
