Gypsy Living is the Life for Me

I am so incredibly happy right now! Wanna know why? No? Well I have to tell you anyways. I have spent the past couple of days tediously writing papers for my literature essay portfolio that was due earlier this evening. At this point, my brain is fried, but I am so relieved to be done with it all! Though tomorrow I'll begin studying for the rest of my college finals, right now I'm going to focus on my relaxing evening!

So I've been on a roll with my senses inspired posts, and I love writing them, but something came into my life the other day that I must write about... THIS INSTANT! I've always been inspired by caravan living, although I had forgotten all about it until I stumbled across some of the most amazing little campers. Maybe you think I'm crazy for wanting to live out of a tiny movable box, but something about it speaks to me. It symbolizes freedom.

I imagine myself pulling up to a beautiful seaside location, all of my most treasured belongings being carried right behind me. A friend comes along, and we strum our guitars while watching the sun disappear into the sea. It's just me, my charming caravan, and whatever friend is adventurous enough to come with me on my journey, enjoying life for its simple pleasures. We experience different towns, foreign roads, and new people on our trip towards nowhere in particular. At night, I fall asleep to the waves softly breaking on the rocks below, and if I look out of the window above my bed, I can see a million twinkling stars. In the morning when sunlight washes over my little home, I go outside to breath in the fresh, pristine air, and I think about how great it feels to be alive.

That is my gypsy living fantasy! I really hope to own a caravan someday, even if it's only used for short vacations or as a secret area for crafting and reading. Wouldn't that be so nice? People have started to remodel old Airstreams, as well as other brands, and they are amazing! I am even more completely in love. Here are some other cute photos that I have found:



I would love to know what you think of this post! Would you like to live in one of these movable homes too? Who wants to come with me? :]

Btw, I just got bloglovin, so follow my blog here!


  1. I absolutely adore this idea! Ultimate freedom. I want an Airstream!

  2. Yay for finishing your papers and feeling accomplished! Best of luck with your exam preparations :)

    Some of those pictures you posted are really cute and don't even look like caravans at all!! Seeing this post reminded me of this picture show called "At Home on the Road in Australia" that I saw at a while ago. I, myself, not a big fan of this, but I'd take a trip or two just to really see what it's like, I'm up for anything as long as it's in a good company!

    Here's the link with the pictures I mentioned, who knows, you might find it interesting:

  3. I'm completely obsesses with trailer living, too! Like a snail or a turle.

  4. oh how romantic & adventurous!
    good luck with your studying-- i am in the same boat! ; )

  5. Thank you all for the comments!

    Shannon, I want one too. Really badly! It would be so much fun to refurbish and decorate and then to travel cross country with. :)

    Anna, good luck with your finals too!

    Julia, thanks for telling me about such a cool link! You always have great stuff to share. :)

    And Sarah, your comment literally made me laugh out loud!

  6. This is great post once again Caylee, I would be all for this as long as I could tow the caravan with an electric vehicle that is recharged by the sun.. O what wonderful day that will be( me dreaming). Or maybe just a bio-diesel truck and I would stop and pick-up waste grease form fast food places along the way.. easily done!

  7. Tim, thanks for the comment! You can just pick up grease from a fast food restaurant that easily??

  8. I love taking road trips but actually living in a moveable home...I dont know if I could handle it.

  10. oh i like! some of these are just so cute...i would totally travel in it!

  11. Thanks you for the comments! I appreciate it so much! :)

  12. I love this idea - I am totally into the whole remodeling Airstreams/trailers trend. I like the idea of hitting the open road, and taking some of the comfort of "home" with you.

  13. I completely agree! Thank you for the comment!
