Summer of the Gypsy Wagon - #Familia #FloridaKeys #Ford

@Ford_Southeast lent Babushka & Sweetie the Ford Transit, but the story, opinions and memories are totally our own.


HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!!


BB can hear y’all now. “Summer?? Pero Babushka, it’s fall!! Talk about running Cubantime!!!” 

Ok si, we’re now nearing Thanksgiving and there’s a nip in the air. That’s exactly why this memory came to mind.

Unlike the lower part of our beloved state, Up North in The South starts to have a season change in November and the temperatures really can dip.  Around now, when we start to plan out the menu for Thanksgiving, we also start to look back at the events of the year and begin our fond recollections of the blessings enjoyed till now.  It was actually cold enough this weekend that Sweetie started taking out winter clothing, and the memories of the year's summer adventure came out with them.

“You remember the great time we had at the Keys hun?”  “The Gypsy wagon was a beaut wasn’t it? Wouldn’t mind going on another trip with her.”   “You know, we really could camp out in her with no problem at all. Now wouldn’t that be great?”

Quee? Esta bien, it didn't have all those BB markings on it, but it did have the following that made it feel like ours.

Vieron to' eso Beautifuls? Chargers in the back, in the front, cup holders all over too!! Y con BB you KNOW you have to have all those little compartment spaces for the various pamphlets, cameras, cell phone, tablets... things we all carry everyday. The Gypsy Wagon was a diesel and mas que amplio, so it was ready for any clase de trip we'd ask of her. Roomy, spacious, note the amount of trunk space,the bags fit comfortably- and so did Sweetie!! Look at that smile on him. Midiendo 6'4" there aren't many vehicles he can stand straight in.


To tell the truth Beautifuls, when we first saw the Ford Transit, we were "OMAIGAA, it's a bus!" Babushka had expected the midsize version, pero knowing we were going to visitar The Grands they sent the grande. Believe it or not, when we decided to go ahead and drive, it drove like any other car!! Unbelievable pero cierto. Matter of act, es mas, BB forgot it wasn't regular size and nicked it on the top in a parking garage. Also unbelievable, pero cierto. Quee? JU SO FONII!!! Ok si, maybe not so unbelievable.

Oh, what fun adventures we had in the Gypsy Wagon!! From mid state Lake Wales, to Miami, down to the Florida Keys, back through Miami and then ending at Lake Wales again. TREMENDO VIAJE y TREMENDO TRANSIT!!
