Its been a while since I’ve written a personal blog post on World of Wanderlust. This is mostly due to the fact that I’ve been travelling nonstop for the past couple of months and have only made time for travel-related posts in the from of city guides, reviews, destination pieces, etc. But now that I have a couple of weeks “off” travel (more on that later), I’ve decided to finally open up and show my life at home.

I’ve always been pretty open (especially in my books) about life at home, but have never taken the time to talk about my travel/home balance and how I manage my time year-round. Being a Sunday, I figured now is as good a time as any!

I’ve been travelling on and off for years now and I wouldn’t have my life any other way. Whilst I tried to move abroad last year and had a two-month trial living in the city of Berlin, I figured my whole life was still back at home in Australia – my dog, family, friends, etc. – so I decided to return home after a year of full time travel and make a new plan.

I didn’t want to stop travelling but I also wanted to feel like somewhere was home. Whilst living out of a suitcase sounds awesome, adventurous and exciting, it certainly does at some point take its toll. For me, that came after a year of moving around non-stop.

I decided to base myself out of Australia again and travel for a few weeks or a few months at a time, having a little time “off” travel in between trips to unpack and repack my bags, sleep in my own bed, detox (or at least try), do some freelance jobs to make more money for my next trip and then off I’d go again. This plan has been working pretty well for me now, especially since moving out of my parents’ house to have my own space and freedom – a sheer necessity in your 20’s! Myself and my partner (fancy adult name for a boyfriend) are slowly renovating some rooms of our little farm house to make it feel like home — we’ve come a long way but still a long way to go! So anyway, here’s a sneak peek inside my home for a sneaky little personal post!

Home Tour - World of Wanderlust OLYMPUS

My home office – currently in my bedroom until the “study” is renovated. I have my passport here at all time for sporadic desires to quickly fly away. For my photos, I use an Olympus PEN E-PL7 and OM-D 5 Mark II.

    Love it that you have a place that you can call home, Brooke! And love the color shame, I have the same and go with beige and white for years and it still doesn’t get boring. Just relax and have fun with your partner aka boyfriend 😉 do what feels right for you and don’t stress out about having (just) to travel. For me you can write about whatever you want, even gardening and I’m pretty sure that I would love it just because its from YOU! Have a nice Sunday! Greetings from Vienna, Dani

    OMG! Your pantry is so organized! Mine is a hot mess! I have wire shelving and have a hard time organizing it. I also love the bright atmosphere of your home decor. Looks very relaxing.

    Love the place and the colour scheme. Simple yet elegant. Theres nothing better than the comfort of your own place after a long trip away. I spent 4 months in europe (10 weeks of that i was working and sleeping in a hostel!!) and just got home this week. Other than my family, fiance, cats and friends ive missed my bed, my bathroom, and my PC. Trying to blog on a small laptop with crappy wifi was almost impossible. Just have to beat this jetlag, then i can enjoy summer all over again!

      Thanks so much Ariana 🙂 I wanted to keep it cosy and to feel like home – now I definitely miss it when I’m away! But I’m always excited for the next trip – so nice to have the best of both worlds 🙂 Enjoy home! xo
