All who wander are not lost.....

Juliano says in Brazil the word vagabond is a slur word, used for someone who is lazy and wants easy money. Our blog title is sort of ironic then, since we are far from lazy and going to be spending lots of moneyI decided to google vagabond to see what sort of interested mix they would throw my way.

I got the usual Wikipedia right off the bat. A vagabond is an itinerant person.. A vagabond is characterised by almost continuous travelling, lacking a fixed home, temporary abode, or permanent residence. Vagabonds are not bums, as bums are not known for traveling, preferring to stay in one location.

Good to know we aren't bums. Of course Merriam AND Webster had to throw their two cents in....Middle English, from Anglo-French vacabund, from Late Latin vagabundus, from Latin vagari to wander, Date: 15th century 1: moving from place to place without a fixed home : wandering.

I did find a surprising array of other vagabond related links, Vagabond Inn, The Vagabond in Miami, apparently a club, Vagabond Sportfishing, the Vagabond Travel Guitar....very cool, something every vagabond should own...book results, video results...The Vagabond's House Inn, which is very ironic, because bondies don't have houses....just look it up in Wikipedia....the Eagle Creek Travel Gear Vagabond Bag
.....I might need one of those ...hmmmm HERE we go.... Your Inner Vagabond Coffeehouse and World Lounge, complete with music, bellydancing, comfy couches and java.... who would have thought? My inner vagabond is all about coffee, bellydancing and the world's biggest living room as this place is called. That is pretty cool.Guess its not so bad to be a vagabond....
