Where Will You Leave Your Mark?

If you’re familiar with our company, then you’re probably familiar with our tagline, “Where Will You Leave Your Mark?” You may also know that the tagline grew from our conversations about the motto, “Take Nothing, Leave Nothing,” which has also been used by the National Park Service. While I do believe in that mantra, a […]

The Inspiration Continuum

Inspiration inspires inspiration. I recently posted a photo with a caption that read, “The Inspiration Continuum.” It was a picture I took of an unknown woman who was sketching a waterfall at Yosemite National Park. I was inspired by her inspiration to create art from something that obviously inspired her. It made me see that […]

Traveling Tunes

Music and traveling. They’ve always gone hand-in-hand for me. Whenever I planned a trip, I started thinking about the music that would match the excursion. Jimmy Buffet traveled with us on our trips of sand, sea, and endless umbrella drinks. John Denver crooned to us as we traversed the twisty roads up to the Rocky […]

Nature’s Lessons

When I was a young girl, my grandmother gave me a small book of poetry. The book, A Little Girl is Something to Love,  contained a variety of poems, from authors both known and unknown, about the blessings and promises of being a little girl. I think I got the book at about age ten, when, […]

Here are my small thoughts at large about my recent beach vacation.Observation number one: Tattoos are definitely the norm – I don’t know if […]

The Ones That Got Away

I’ve been fortunate to amass a nice collection of photographs from my travels over the years. Between myself and my travel companions, we’ve been able to capture some pretty cool images on film. Most impressively would be the bears, moose, bison, eagles, etc. that we encountered while in the national parks. Also, the iconic landmarks […]

Cleansing Your Spirit Starts With Your Sole

Our own definition of Wanderlust is as follows: A yearning to wander that starts with the Sole. It’s a play on words that tries to capture our need to hike, to walk, to be immersed in nature because it is necessitated by our very soul. As Wanderlusters, we know that a walk in nature is […]

The Anniversary Interview

We just hit a big milestone! Wanderlust turned one! Yes, we are now celebrating our first year in business, and it’s been quite a year. As I paused and pondered the first year in business, I decided I didn’t want to do just a traditional blog of my reflections. Rather, I commissioned a couple of […]

What I Learned About Alaska

I had the opportunity, privilege really, to travel to Alaska two summers in a row. Last year, I took a cruise with my brother and our shared friends, and we traveled to Juneau, Sitka, Glacier Bay, and Ketchikan. While the cruise itself was a great deal of fun, I remember standing on the boat deck […]
