Julia Chaplin



Julia Chaplin has found the gypsy in her soul — and that of quite a number of simpatico others. Following her best-selling 2009 Assouline title, travel writer Julia Chaplin explores the little-known enclaves of gypsy jet-setters around the world. From the Aeolian Islands in Italy to Lamu, Kenya, North Goa in India, and Jos Ignacio, Uruguay, Gypset Travel delves into the glamorous yet casual lifestyle of bohemian wanderers through intimate photography and first-person anecdotes, and is characterised by a fashionable exoticism and down-to-earth ease that is surely the literary reflection of its gypsy-infused writer.
