Welcome to “Wandering Off Somewhere”


Hi, all! Welcome to my blog, “Wandering Off Somewhere!” I’m Cindy Gelpi, a 53 year-old from New Orleans, who has been traveling all over the world on and off for the last 20 years.

I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to China, Bulgaria, Canada, Singapore, Italy, Germany, Russia, Colombia and many other countries around the world. My husband Mike recently retired, and we have made it our mission to explore the beautiful continent of Europe for the next few years.

We recently moved to incredible country of Croatia in order to learn more about the Croatian way of life and to be close to the crystal clear Adriatic Sea.  We will be living in Pula for the next year or so, and  I hope you will join us in our adventures in Croatia and the surrounding areas!!  We will be visiting a wide variety of cities in Croatia and many different countries throughout Europe as well.  In addition, since my dear husband is a captain, we will be sailing throughout the Adriatic to visit many of the islands.

Our theme song for the next few years:

“They made up our minds, and they started packing.  They left before the sun came up that day.  Exit to eternal summer slacking.  Where were they going without ever knowing the way?”—- lyrics from the The Way by  Fastball.
