How The Wandering Wanderluster Came About
It took me weeks to decide what to call this blog. After all, it is a decision not to be taken lightly. After much thought, I turned to my mum for her advice and wise wisdom. I explained that the name had to have something to do with travel. Her response? “Well you’ve always been a bit of a wanderer”. This I knew. When I was a child I was always wandering off or stopping to stare at something that caught my eye, then quickly realizing I was lagging far behind my family. “Don’t go wandering off” was a phrase I heard much as a child. And it was with that thought that The Wandering Wanderluster was born.
In June 2016, Leo and I got engaged and therefore I decided to change the direction of The Wandering Wanderluster to include my partner and now Fiance Leonardo who I travel extensively with and is the main photographer for our trips. Therefore you’ll notice our name and logo has changed to The Wandering Wanderlusters!
