Oh, how I dream of discovering the world!  Wanderlust runs through my veins.  It makes my feet itch and my heart beat faster – dreaming of the day I next get to go somewhere new and explore.  So I have some fun planned while my feet are tied to home.  The Wanderlust series is a mix of different posts all related to a particular destination.  I plan to explore and discover as much as I can and share all of that with you.

{Destination Inspiration}

The idea of this Destination Inspiration series is a way to sate my strong urges to pack a bag and get on the next plane to anywhere.  So I’ve decided to explore how we can bring these various destinations into our homes without hopping on a plane.  I hope that it inspires you in some way to bring a little slice of this great big world into your home too!


{Fantasy Trip}

I have a bit of a confession. *Gulp* Don’t think I’m weird… but… when I’m stressed out or want to avoid ‘real life’ I get on the internet and I plan my Fantasy Trip – the trip I would take to a particular destination if I had no limits – if I had just won lotto and had all the time in the world.  It’s a fun game… and maybe you can share with me your ideas for a Fantasy Trip as well.

{Top 10}

I’m a list maker.  A crazy, drive-my-husband-mad-with-lists-all-over-the-house list-maker… so, what better than a series where I get to share with you a variety of Top Ten lists relating to the destination of the moment?  I might share with you the Top Ten foods I’d like to try in France, the Top Ten Beaches I’d like to visit in Hawaii, or the Top Ten spots I’d love to have High Tea in London.  I’m hoping you’ll make some suggestions and give me some of your own Top Ten lists.


{Food from Afar}

I know I’ve already shared with you the joy that cooking and eating bring me… so I thought I’d combine two of my great passions for this Food from Afar series.  I’m going to do a little investigating and provide you with a few destination-inspired recipes and dining ideas.

{Big Little Adventures}

I take every opportunity I can to share my Wanderlust with my girls.  I think it is so important to bring them up with a hunger to learn more about this great big world and to expose them to the many wonderful people, cultures, sights and experiences that are out there.  In the Big Little Adventures series, I’ll show you how I teach my girls (and hopefully pass on a passion to discover more) about a particular destination and provide you with some ideas that you can incorporate into your family too.

So, there we go.  The Wanderlust series.  I must say, I’m pretty excited to start exploring!
