Hello! My name is Brooke – the founder, editor, and adventurer behind World of Wanderlust.
A little over two years ago I found myself constantly perusing the internet for a place to inspire my wandering mind. Having always had restless feet and a wandering heart, all I wanted to achieve was a life of travel. Without the funds to permanently be on the road, I decided to create this little space on the internet where I could share stories and photos from my travels, inspire and informs others, and connect with likeminded globetrotters around the world. It was my outlet, my creative space, and the place I turned to when I wanted to escape into a whimsical world of adventures.
Soon after starting, World of Wanderlust was named the “Travel Blog of the Year”. From this award, I received a sponsorship to help me travel the world on a full time basis. I haven’t stopped travelling since. Nowadays, WoW is my full time job and I am fortunate enough to employ a small team of writers in London, Paris, Berlin, and New York. I’m a firm believer in turning dreams into reality, so my only hope is that you too can retreat to this little space on the internet to find endless inspiration and information. I also hope that readers will feel inspired to follow their own dreams and aspirations, hence a move to progress World of Wanderlust as both a travel and lifestyle blog that inspires readers to be their own boss, make their dreams a reality, and create the life they know they deserve.
If you would like to know more about my journey to starting a career in travel writing, you can read the full story in my book, The World of Wanderlust Story.
