I Have "Gypsy" Blood

The urge, the sweet pulse and the complete urge to fly! 92 People

    Not Entirely Sure

    As the title suggests, I'm not entirely sure about this. But there's a lot of people on mum's side of the family who like to move around a lot, and don't like to remain settled in the same spot ... and I have that bug. Kind of odd, considering they're all from farming stock...

    How Do You Catch A Cloud And Pin It Down??

    My family have always jested about how the "gypsy" blood has got the better of me. "Why ME?!" I would exclaim. Noone else in my family seems to have been as unsettled in their lives as I have. My dad right enough, has moved around several times... Yet not quite as much as myself...

    Gypsy Blood But Not A Travler

    Gypsy Blood, And No Transfusion

    My grandfather was carried off the boat from Hungary. That doesn't sound like a whole lot, but he and I (strangely, though, not my mother) shared a love of the outdoors and a thirst for travel. Today he's gone, and I like to imagine he's satisfied, having gone literally...
