American Roadtrip with One Part Gypsy | travel

American Roadtrip CecyJ

One Part Gypsy has quickly become one of my favorite life + style blogs so I was thrilled when I was recently introduced to the founder, Rachel.

Rachel lives in Venice, California where she makes the world a more beautiful place with her photography, writing, and graphic design talents.  She was generous enough to do a guest post for us and share her top 5 stops during a three week road trip across the country.

Rachel’s pictures are stunning and truly tell a beautiful story of America.  Thank you Rachael, my privilege to share your authentic and bohemian travel experience.
