We at Gypsy With a Day Job LOVE the great BIG world, and really hope to see it all some day.  There are 7 continents, and about 195 countries out there, although the specific number of countries varies slightly, depending on where you are from, and your political stance.  Still, that is a lot of destinations to see!  

As we see more of the world, we will share it with you.  We hope it inspires you to see more, helps you decide what to see.  We also hope that we give you the insight you need for fun and exciting trips, plus enough insider info to find some locally approved gems.  

When I prepared for my first "big trip," in Hawaii, I thought of it as a "once in a lifetime trip."  Even now, when I have experienced a few big trips I still have that feeling that each trip is something special, and that I may only get to this place once.  I hope to make the absolute most out of each of these trips.  I want to help you do the same.

Because there is so much world, we will sort our destinations by regions, at this time.  Later on, after we visit more places, and you share more of your stories, we may need to further separate those regions, but for a start, this will work.  

So, check the links below to get a start looking at our destinations.
