Where WOW Will Travel in 2015

Hello lovely people of the internet! How are you all doing? Great I hope.
Much like 2014, this year will be a big year of travels for World of Wanderlust – but before we get to the locations, lemme hit a few important notes. Firstly, I’d love to make this year first and foremost about you. One of the best parts of my job and that I take most to heart is creating a community for like-minded travellers, globetrotters, digital nomads, wanderlusters, dreamers (insert many other a word here) to come and find two things on this space of the internet: INSPIRATION & INFORMATION.
So if the whole purpose of WOW is to give my readers these two things, I figure there’s no point in me making a detailed plan of countries I will visit this year without asking a pretty important question (or two):

1. What do you want to see on WOW? More blogs, vlogs, video tutorials, photos, stories about people I meet, travel guides???

2. Where do you want WOW to travel in 2015 (and beyond)???


More than anything, I want to meet more of you in 2015. I recently told a newspaper publication that the best part of my job is meeting readers around the world, and I meant it. I love all aspects of travel of course, but its the people I meet on the road and how they impact my life – what I learn from them, hearing their story, getting to know them as friends, that means the most. Some of my best friends I have in my life now I have met in the past year travelling the world. In fact, I’d say its an equal spread of people I talk to on a daily/weekly basis between friends from highschool and friends I’ve met travelling. I even wrote a post about how blogging gave me thousands of friends around the world. I’d love to keep meeting more of you this year and making more lifelong friends… you can never have too many!!
Because I’m putting it back in your hands and asking for your help, I don’t have a very detailed travel plan for the entire year. I have completely planned and booked the next 3 months, but beyond that, the options are truly endless. I’ll go anywhere in the world, there isn’t anywhere I don’t want to experience at least once. So here’s where you’ll find me in the next three months:

Where WOW Will Travel in 2015

Bali, Cradle Mountain Overland Track, Tasmania, Singapore, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Muscat, India, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Malaysia, Fiji

Some ideas of where else you might find me in 2015 (???)

South Africa, elsewhere in Africa, Nepal, Japan, Cuba, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Mexico, Seoul, Mongolia, everywhere and anywhere in Europe, everywhere and anywhere in the USA.

 Why I’m avoiding making a long-term plan

2014 was amazing. I can’t even begin to describe the amount of things I experienced. I went on my first South African safari, then I was fortunate enough to go on a second one later in the year (ahhhh-mazing!), I went to New York and explored with a reader for a week, I ate myself Dim-Sum stupid for a whole week in Hong Kong, I sizzled in the Dubai heat during Ramadan, I sailed around the waters of St Barths amidst 10 days staying on the island, I spent a few days in Paris with one of my best friends and I moved to Berlin for a couple of months to see if I would like to live more permanently…. the list is truly endless. So. much. happened. in. 2014.
2015 won’t be any different.
But before I left on my year long journey last year, I had a plan. I knew I would visit all 6 continents, I knew the countries I would visit and had booked and planned everything well in advance. I was writing my book, ‘A Year to Myself’ (released very soon in the coming months), so I had an idea of exactly what I would do in that year.
This year I just want to go with the flow a bit more… take random trips, rock up to the airport with my bags packed and take the next flight out, go to cities I haven’t been and countries I could spend a couple of weeks exploring. I’d love to meet more readers and I’d love to just see where the wind takes me. Hence I only have the next few months planned and will continue to only plan a few months in advance each time. S’long as I’ve got my passport with me 24/7, I think I have a pretty fool-proof plan. Or at least, a plan to make plans.
But I’d love to hear from readers – where would you like WOW to visit in 2015!?
Do you want to see more reviews, more photos, more videos….?
Please let me know in the comments below & I can’t wait to meet more of you guys this year!!

    Go to Macedonia and Albania by car. This was an amazing experience (even without a car) and would do it again. Ohrid, Macedonia is one of the most beautiful places.

    Hey Brooke,
    Just come across with your blog and read some very nice articles 🙂
    I’m also a solo traveller – if you ever pass by Lisboa (Portugal), you can crash at my place and I can show you around 🙂
    Have great & safe adventures! mostly have FUN!
    take care, Ines

    Come to BARCELONA! I can show you around the city, mountain, beaches, parks. Let me know if you come to Spain
    I love travel but i’m young and my dad don’t let me all the freedom I really want. LA, London and Paris are waiting me this summer!
    hope to meet you someday…

    CANADA!!!!! specifically Vancouver in the summer. There is so much to do you would love it! There is amazing outdoors stuff to do as well as lots of cultural stuff and side trips like to Whistler or Vancouver Island. Its a beautiful city and the best in Canada! (my bias of course) I can even give you a detailed list of all the best things to do, and show you around if you came. I really hope you consider it!

    February 25, 2015 at 11:49 pm

    Hi brooke! I suggest you include in the list of your next destinations the Philippines and Canada!!! I would love to see you in my home country (Philippines) and would love to look at pictures of you at Lake Banff, Alberta! I hope you consider my suggestion!! 🙂

    February 17, 2015 at 8:48 pm

    Same here. Many beautiful places here.
    Palawan, Boracay, Bohol. ^_^

    Hi Brooke! I stumbled across your blog a few weeks ago and i need to say, you are incredibly inspiring! I’m 22 and from Canada, still young and wondering which direction to take in my life! Travel is something I’ve been passionate about from a young age, thanks to extremely hard working parents that have taken us on a few too many holidays. Your blog has helped me a ton in motivating me to take a step in the right direction, travelling to world as a career and lifestyle! Later this year I’m off to Iceland and that will be my biggest and farthest adventure yet, and reading your blog has added a ton of new places to my Bucketlist. I’d love to see your take on Iceand sometime this year, I think it’s somewhere you will love!! All the best ❤️

    February 15, 2015 at 5:59 am

    You’re coming to Malaysia! Let us know when Brooke. Would love to meet you! Be sure to try all the local delicacies!

    February 13, 2015 at 7:03 am

    I’m disappointed that you didn’t mentioned going to the Philippines!

    February 12, 2015 at 9:14 am

    Hi Brooke!
    Im your newest fan from Canada! I found your blog while reading about Bali – most likely my next destination and I just felt in love with your blog!!!!!!!! I can say I spent couple hours reading your oldest posts (kinda like getting to know ya) and this one I had to stop and say ‘HI’ and as Im saying HI I found myself wondering why I dont consider also coming to Canada? Canada has many beautiful stunning National Parks such as Banff and Jasper and thousands of lakes and wildlife.

    I will still spent many hours here Im pretty sure =)
    Love your pictures!


    February 12, 2015 at 12:00 am

    Yayay, I so hope that you’ll come again to Finland and have a meetup here, it would be a dream come true! And I can honestly say that the Finnish Sunmer cottage life and the ‘nightless night’ are absolutely beutofil!

    Atleast I haven’t heard about Egypt in your blog, if I’m right and you haven’t been thetr I’d really recommend it! The kings’ valley is amazing (maybe even more amazing than the pyramides!) and if you love history like you say you do, I’m sure you’ll love it!

    Another one is Ecuador. I’ve never been there myself but I’ll spend an exchange year there starting next fall so I’ve read and googled tons of info of the place, and it sounds amazing! All the volcanoes, rainforests, Andes, popular surfing beaches and the indian culture which is present everywhere.. Atleast it sounds like really dreamy place! And not to forget, Galapagos islands belong to Ecuador, and they are a place what I think everyone should see.

    I’ve also hear that Tonga is a gorgeous and not-touristy island, and Nauru and Christmas and Madagaskar islands sound really interesting!

    Where ever you’ll go, I wish you all the best for your journey!

    February 11, 2015 at 3:02 am

    I would highly recommend the northern part of Sweden. Especially in winter time but also in the summer so you can experience the midnight sun! And as a mountain guide I can give you good tips of things to experience here! 🙂

    February 9, 2015 at 4:13 am

    Hey Brooke!
    I highly suggest going to Costa Rica and Nicaragua as they are SOO beautiful and you would’t regret it! I was only there for a week and fell in love with the place instantly! So much to do and see 🙂 When will you be in Thailand? I’ll be there in May for the whole month volunteering with a tribe!! 🙂

    Happy Travels!!!

    February 8, 2015 at 8:48 pm


    I also like to travel a lot!! But I have a couple of problems… I’m kinda scared of flying (only a little bit) and I’m also very home sick the first days of travel. Maybe you could do some blog posts about these problems. Just an idea, take it or leave it ! 😉
    You should come to Belgium because that’s the little country where I live. Ghent is a very beautiful city and my little studio is always open for visitors. Come and check it out.

    February 7, 2015 at 12:33 am


    Your blog continues to distract me as i attempt to study for year 12. Everyday i envy the fact you are someone amazing and i’m in a four walled classroom.

    BUT, i can’t say i’ve been travel deprived and next year I will be taking off and living in Scotland for an entire year. That means endless Europe travels in 2016 for me, which means hopefully our paths will cross at some point. At this stage i’m going solo which at one point doesn’t phase me and at times freaks me out. I love your blog, especially as I love to travel and record my travels myself.

    2014 saw a one week internship with Lonely Planet for me. This meant flying from my hometown the Gold Coast, to the glamours europeanish style of Melbourne. WAS SO MUCH FUN. BEST OFFICE EVER.
    So hopefully we will meet next year and you may be lucky to receive the full run down of my week working at Lonely planet, whilst I listen to the tales of your amazing road travelled.
    Please do yourself a favour this year and visit Piran, on the coast of Slovenia. I have family close by there and it is truly stunning.
    All the best,

    Gold Coast, Australia

    What a great itinerary to start off with and so much fun to give readers input! I think video tutorials always give people a chance to know you better, since many of us won’t ever meet you in person. As far as travels, my beloved Colombia should be on that list! 😉

    February 2, 2015 at 4:10 pm

    Huntington Beach ((Surf City)) California!!! Im not a traveler, yet. But would love the chance to meet you!!

    February 1, 2015 at 9:34 am

    I really think you should do a trip around Portugal. The country os beatiful, and people should see it and know about it. Portugal is the oldest country in the world, but is not truly know. Keep ip the good work!!

    January 30, 2015 at 9:31 pm

    Hi Brooke,

    Absolutely adore your blog, and I’d love to meet you whenever you’re in The Netherlands! Amsterdam is the main attraction for tourists but there are many other amazing cities in our country like Rotterdam (my hometown), Utrecht, Maastricht and The Hague! Would love to show you around one day!

    Good luck on all your travels, you’re an inspiration to all!

    Are you really coming to Malaysia, brooke? I would love to show you around KL if you like. We can even head out of town to Malacca, Penang and Ipoh – the places which are rich in food and art culture in Malaysia. Let me know when!

    January 30, 2015 at 1:54 pm

    More in-depth articles (would love to hear more about the food on your travels), less lists.

    January 29, 2015 at 6:39 pm

    you absolutely must visit the seven wonders of Wales in the UK. I know I’ve mentioned this before but they’re so beautiful and shrouded in so much history. If you do come back to the UK I would love to show them to you. But wherever you end up may your journeys be exciting, fun, memorable and safe 🙂

    Much love

    January 29, 2015 at 1:13 pm

    It sounds so exciting! Hey, if you want to have a little visit to the Caribbean you can come to Puerto Rico…just saying. But that of course if you like the tropical weather, beaches, rainforests and piña coladas haha ;D Can’t wait to see where you go next for this year!

    January 29, 2015 at 1:05 pm

    Well I just read a bunch of what people are saying to you. It seems like number one place is Canada and I agree I live in ontario close to Niagara Falls!! Then there is Toronto and Ottawa, go to Quebec or British Columbia endless ideas and I feel like Canada is calling you this year!!!

    Canada! I’m in Toronto, which is a fantastic city, but last summer I visited Cape Breton and it is stunning. Canada’s east coast is one of a kind 🙂

    January 29, 2015 at 4:34 am

    I would definitely say come to Canada at some point. Anywhere really in Canada, the east coast is under rated most of the time but anywhere in Canada you can find amazing places. 🙂

    January 29, 2015 at 1:10 am

    Hi Brooke!
    Please do make a trip to the Philippines! I would love to show you around if you ever get the chance to visit. Also, please make more vlogs and really feature the country you’re in. I love watching them.

    Keep up the great work on your blog; you’re such an inspiration to me!

    It all looks amazing but I’d love for you to stop over in Melbourne so we can hang out 🙂

    My travel plans this year look to be Thailand in Feb, Japan/South Korea in July and then in November I’ll be heading off on a 15month RTW trip starting in Egypt and Jordan.
    This year is going to be a very big year for me!

    I would love to see a travel guide for San Francisco and Napa/Sonoma area! I’m going there in October and would love to here to some great places to go!

    January 28, 2015 at 6:30 am

    I know this is really boring, but come to Canada! I live in Toronto and would happily be your tour guide – we could hit up some classics around the city, national parks further north, Niagara Falls, Ottawa, and trek up to Quebec too!

    I’m a big fan of yours, and no matter where you go, I’m sure you’ll bring all of us a little closer to the beautiful places around the world. Thanks for doing all you do!

        February 17, 2015 at 5:08 pm

        You really should try and make it to Canada this year, there is so much to see! I live in the prairies but the west coast is absolutely beautiful!

    January 28, 2015 at 12:51 am

    Tanzania and Zanzibar! I’ll be living in Zanzibar from February to late June, and it would just be amazing to guide you around on this tropical African island. And I would love to read all about a trip to Madagascar! And of course I think you should come visit Norway (my dear home country) some time soon!

    January 28, 2015 at 12:21 am

    I just came across your site today while i was planning my first ever solo trip, a 3 month trip in Europe. Im 22 and from Australia so when i saw your description i was like ‘HA’ perfect. Your blogs have been really helpful for settling my nerves on the whole travelling alone thing. So if you end up in Europe over the summer (especially Greece) it would be amazing to meet up!

    January 27, 2015 at 11:26 pm

    Hey Brooke!
    WOW is probably my favourite travel blog and has been for a while now! I adored your gift guides that you put up over the Christmas season just so you know!
    I think I would love to see more travel guides and also tips for solo travelling especially from a women’s perspective because there is a higher risk of danger I guess.
    Cannot wait to see what happens here in 2015!
    Catriona ♡

    January 27, 2015 at 10:53 pm

    Hi Brooke, I’m commenting again ^^
    I’d like to see more photos and in-depth articles – not just addresses and hacks, but a bit of context about the places you visited I think. And generally, a bit more written stuff, like when you do gift idea lists, it’s too bad you don’t write a couple sentences to introduce everything. I’ve been following your blog for a year now and that’s the only thing that bothers me sometimes, a bit too much “been there done that” and not enough backstory. Otherwise I really like your blog 🙂

      February 17, 2015 at 5:10 pm

      I agree I would love to see more photos, the ones you post are wonderful and I can’t get enough!

    January 27, 2015 at 5:49 pm

    Come to Canada!!!!! specifically Victoria and the interior of British Columbia (it is warm here in the summer)

    January 27, 2015 at 5:43 pm

    Hey Brooke it would be lovely to see more vlogs from you for sure. I love the way you vlog and seeing places in a video is definitely more exciting and real than in photos alone. I look up to your blog for travel advice, budget recommendations and to-dos that I keep archiving for whenever I would get to visit a particular destination. By the way whenever you do happen to come down to India I would love to meet u and even show you around if you happen to come to Bangalore/Bengaluru! Hope to see ya! and happy 2015!!

    January 27, 2015 at 4:53 pm

    I love seeing video and then also more insider truths about places or ‘off the beaten path’. You should also do more meet ups (or if you are in london, come say hey ha!) and yeah … just generally keep that shit up (cause clearly working)!

    Good job sunshine,

    January 27, 2015 at 1:13 pm

    Hi Brooke!
    I’m glad to hear about your upcoming plans. I honestly love your blog and you have even inspired me to start my own. In regards to your questions….
    My favourite part of your site is your blog posts about your adventures and when you talk about the people you have met along the way. Maybe trying something more like the food you’ve tasted or the stores you’ve visited.
    && secondly, you should come to Toronto, Canada! I would love to give you a tour of the city.
    Look forward to read your next posts!

    I’m excited to see what you get up to over the next year!
    You are an inspiration to a generation. An affirmation that following your heart and letting your passions lead you can open up some truly fascinating doors.

    All the best this year!

    January 27, 2015 at 6:52 am

    Hi brooke! Love that you will be coming to Oman this year! It has so much natural beauty and the people are lovely! You should definately check out the Sinkhole, Wadi Shab and Wahiba Sands! 🙂

    January 27, 2015 at 5:59 am

    Brooke! You need to keep those photos coming, and make more videos! Its been ages since you did a vlog so looking forward to more of those. I love the posts on “hacks”!
    As for where to go, you know what I’m gonna say 😉

    1. I like the casual vlogs that are more personal. I’m also very into destination guides–more on what sights to see and maybe sample walking tours or itineraries. Motivational posts are always appreciated, as are blogging tips!

    2. While I’ve loved your take on Europe, I’d love to hear about more Asian destinations.

    Can’t wait to see where this year takes you!

    January 27, 2015 at 4:30 am

    More photos would be awesome! 🙂

    January 27, 2015 at 3:05 am

    It sounds like 2015 will be such an exciting year! If you find yourself itching to get to the US Rockies, you have a place to stay in Denver, Colorado, and some local tour guides.

    January 27, 2015 at 2:01 am

    I would really love to see u in Philippines!!!!! hope you’ll come here soon, such a historic place full of stories to tell and a product of different cultures

    Hi Brooke,

    I am in India at the moment. Such an interesting and hectic country! I’m still getting used to people on the street asking for pictures with me because of my pale skin.

    I just left Sri Lanka as well. I stayed at the Chaaya Tranz resort in Hikkaduwa which is a beautiful hotel on the beach and there is always giant sea turtles right there waiting to be fed! Its an amazing experience.

    If you find yourself in France you are welcome to stay with me in a beautiful old house in Cognac where I will be living for the year and taking photos, travelling, blogging and meeting up with fellow travellers!

    I am also from Australia and we share the same name! You can check out my blog if you want or send me an email if you find yourself in Europe or if you have any questions about Sri Lanka or India!

    January 26, 2015 at 11:12 pm

    I’d like to see more photos of the places you’re describing, and more vlogs!

    Southern California! San Diego to Santa Barbara – ocean, lakes, mountains, deserts, amusement parks, good eats, LA, farmers markets. Lots to explore! If you come out I can give you some suggestions!

    January 26, 2015 at 2:30 pm

    Hi Brooke! I am a HUGE fan of your blog! I always look forward to your updates and posts. I would love to see you continue doing the vlogs – I followed your every day of Vlogmas and it was so neat to feel like I was part of that adventure in some way. 🙂

    I also love the lists you post for the best places to go in a particular area of the world. The inspirational posts like the “Little ways how travel changed my life” and “What happened when I stopped thinking I needed a boyfriend” are two of my favorite posts of yours, even though it’s hard to even pick favorites since everything you post is top-knotch.

    You should come over to Boston, I would love to meet you! Or even NYC since that’s pretty accessible and I know you love New York. I’m sure everything you will do this year will be fantastic and I will definitely keep following along. Happy travels! 🙂


    January 26, 2015 at 2:07 pm

    No Canada? 🙁 so sad! I hope you change your mind! 🙂

    January 26, 2015 at 1:48 pm

    Hey Brooke,

    If you are ever in Ontario Canada I would love to meet you! Canada is a beautiful place. Pack warm!!

    Do more vlogs! I literally can’t get enough of vlogs lately.

    January 26, 2015 at 11:39 am

    Hey Brooke, when will u go to Seoul? I might go there in early April.

    i’m excited for your year ahead, brooke! but what about canada?

    January 26, 2015 at 10:53 am

    As a Nicaraguan, I definitely say Nicaragua! It is a small country, but with lots of opportunities! Please let me know if you do come here, I would love to be a part of your adventures there!

    January 26, 2015 at 9:15 am

    Hi Brooke!
    I read that some people suggested Bulgaria – well if you decide to go there you should definitely go to Greece as well. The north of the country is extremely different to the postcard idea you get of Greece, and then you could keep on going south, and to some islands etc. You’d love it I’m sure. Summer of course is the best for swimming – if you’d prefer to go walking and discovering, then april-may are very nice (FLOWERS! and not too hot weather), and september is warm+off season ^^ If you’d like to go to the Cyclades e-mail me, you could stay at our country house depending on where you’re going!

    January 26, 2015 at 8:59 am

    Hi Brooke! You should come to Salt Lake City, Utah! There is a lot of cool stuff to do here including breathtaking national parks and gorgeous mountains! There’s always something amazing going on in the city and cool stuff to try all around! You won’t regret it!

    Is It French?
    January 26, 2015 at 8:33 am

    Well, one thing is sure, we’ll follow you wherever you go 😉 I look forward to places not touristy yet and on the southern side! All your impressions, intersting facts, advices are very wellcome. Vlogs aren’t really my thing (yet) but everything written makes me very very happy! Good luck Brooke <3

    Hi there! My dream is to travel the world like you do! Glacier National Park and Flathead Lake in Montana, USA is a stunning place to visit. You won’t be disappointed!

    January 26, 2015 at 8:08 am

    Hi Brooke! it would be interesting to continue to read about adventures in places that are a little bit off the beaten track. For example, Madagascar? Iceland (even though that is not a very unusual destination now, but still nice to see what there is to do there) , Bosnia. You posted some pictures from there but maybe visit some more places, like Sarajevo, Jajce (google it 🙂 ) and more! Enjoy your travels!

    January 26, 2015 at 8:04 am

    My boyfriend and I are backpacking in Thailand, Cambodia, China, Japan and Indonesia from April to June, and it wouldn’t exactly bother me if I were to bump in to you, hah! My home base is in Norway though, and I’d love to host you if you ever considered coming here. Hope your year will be fabulous no matter where you choose to go, or what you choose to do!

    If you are ever planning on heading back to Stockholm or Sweden, I would love to know! I write a (currently small) travel & lifestyle blog myself, and have loved following along on your adventures. I am originally from the U.S.– Minnesota to be exact- and I actually really recommend it! It is not the typical ‘tourist’ destination, but there are so many great things to do and places to see, especially in the summertime. Can’t wait to see where 2015 brings you!

    January 26, 2015 at 7:11 am

    From June till early September you have to visit the Greek islands…take one day tour in Athens to visit the Acropolis and traditional Plaka and next day take the ferry to Santorini. It’s something so unique you are not justified to have not visited yet!!!
    Other lovely greek islands.. Paros, Folegandros, Ios, Skiathos, Skopelos, Myconos and the list goes on and on…

    Newport, RI is a really great typical New England beach town with tons of history!

    January 26, 2015 at 6:17 am

    Hi Brooke! I have been following your blog for about a year and it is struggle to think of somewhere you haven’t already been. But I would love to see you go to Central America. I backpacked there for three months and had an amazing time. Can strongly recommend Antigua in Guatemala, the Mayan ruins Tikal (also Guatemala), diving and snorkeling in Belize and so many other destinations. I wrote a little something about my trip some time ago. Feel free to check it out for more stuff to to do in Central America.

    Hi Brooke!
    What a lovely idea to go with the flow this Year! That will be interesting to read about 🙂 and i love reading your more personal posts, so I hope to see more of that! 😉
    I have myself traveled to Mexico for one month and I miss it so so much – so I would definitely recommend going there! And then you should definitely try swimming in a Cenote. It is incredible!

    I recently traveled ti Paris – solo. For the first time in my life and you were a big inspiration for me! So THANK YOU!
    I am planning to travel to Iceland in late April/the beginning of May. And I could not help but notice that it is on your travel buket list. So, if you find yourself wanting to see Iceland send an email and we could meet up for a couple of days and explore the island together!

    I wish you all the best,
    Louise Bellis (Denmark)

    January 26, 2015 at 4:36 am

    Jordanien or Tahiti would be great! I live in switzerland and it would be wonderfull to have you here again!

    January 26, 2015 at 3:49 am

    Oh, I hope you keep having a wonderful 2015! I would love to read to more travel guides and the stories of people you met along the way! And it would be awesome if you could visit some other African countries! With love,

    Hi Brooke,
    I stumbled upon your website a few months back and I love it! I love to travel when I can and I find your year solo traveling to be absolutely inspirational well done. If you’re looking for places to travel to you should come back to Ireland. You have only seen the tip of the iceberg! Cork is where you should visit or as we call it the real capital of Ireland, plus we have just opened the Wild Atlantic Way a new coastal travel plan that stops at many of the most popular places in Ireland!

    January 26, 2015 at 3:19 am

    I highly recommend Norway! Just got back from a cruise on the Hurtigruten to see the northern lights.. Awesome country and people!

    Yes, we are passing great with all of our staff here and making the road map of progress our business then 2014. We have a plan to travel Cox-brazer with all of our staff.

    January 26, 2015 at 1:11 am

    This just sounds amazing, 3 month and all of that traveling.
    I’d highly recommend you to visit Buenos Aires and then go down to Ushuaia and if possible even further south, the scenery is breathtaking, however best time to be there I think is February.
    Mongolia sounds very exciting too, ever thought of Shangri-La? Supposedly beautiful.

    Hi Brooke,
    How about Des Moines, Iowa, USA, in August during the Iowa State Fair? Check it out on the web please. It is a very unique experience that I think your readers would enjoy. Safe travels:)

    January 26, 2015 at 12:59 am

    Come to Scotland (East Coast Fife)!! Would love to host you 🙂

    January 26, 2015 at 12:50 am

    I really hope you will manage to visit Mongolia this year! And maybe the beautiful Bosnia & Hercegovina again!

    January 26, 2015 at 12:38 am

    I would love to see you do another post about Bosnia! Perhaps a blog post on the capital, Sarajevo!!

    I love in New York, originally from Miami. I am such a fan of yours. I’m going to Scotland and London in two months and can’t wait to visit a few of your recommendations. I would love for you to visit Dominican Republic!!!!!!

    January 26, 2015 at 12:01 am

    I love your vlogs, but this place that you have going here is incredible. It’s my favourite place to come too. So, I have to say a whole lot more blogs. 🙂

    Also, you should come to Trinidad for carnival. It may be too late this year as Carnival is in February…but next year can be an option. Almost every list I read on the world’s best carnivals, Trinidad is always on there. Of course, I’ll show you around. 🙂 Also, we could go to Tobago. It’s about 20 minutes by plane from Trinidad.

    January 25, 2015 at 11:55 pm

    Brooke first of all i love ur blog it inspires me each and every day. But i really think you should go to my favourite place in the world; greece! Ive never seen anything like it. Good luck with all your travels xxxx 🙂

    January 25, 2015 at 11:34 pm

    Hey Brooke!
    I would love for you to do some posts on traveling in Australia! Im from the UK an I’m planning to come over for 2 years. Also I would love more vlogs as vlogmas was awesome!
    Happy traveling!

    January 25, 2015 at 11:17 pm

    Hi, Brooke! I definitely support Evelina. Bulgaria is out of the beaten tourist path and worth exploring. If you come around, please contact me. Will be happy to show you some special places. 🙂

    January 25, 2015 at 11:14 pm

    Come to Bulgaria during your euro trip :p. You should check Plovdiv (<3), Tarnovo and the countryside. I'm sure you won't regret 😉
    Also I personally travel myself a lot and I've always wanted to go to New Zealand, but it's the most distant country and probably won't happen soon, so I'll be happy if you post something for us from there. 🙂

    January 25, 2015 at 10:25 pm

    Hey Brooke, I know everyone has mentioned it but you need to come to Canada! More specifically the East Coast (Nova Scotia). The scenery is so diverse and you can do lots of exploring.
    I’d love to see a guide on travelling Eastern Europe. I’m currently studying abroad in Scotland and plan to do some travels but not sure where to start.
    thank you for providing all your travel inspiration 🙂

    January 25, 2015 at 9:56 pm

    Hi Broke! =)
    First of all, I love your blog and follow it since the beg. of 2013.
    I have travelled to many different places and lived in 5 countries until now.
    I love the articles as much as I do the vlogs and I would welcome maybe more photos and videos.
    It would be pleasure to meet up with you somewhere. I currently live in Ireland, but moving to Brazil soon. Originaly I am from Slovakia and that is why I recommend you to visit Slovak mountains, Slovak Paradise (mountain range in central Slovakia, High Tatras and one of the ice-caves. Eastern Europe itself is full of nature and cultural heritage. In Czech Republic, apart from Prague, there is this fairytale town called Cesky Krumlov. Then Hungary, Poland, Croatia (Plytvic lakes, Pakenica park), Slovenia, Serbia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia…
    When you get to South America, make sure to visit Brasil, there is this secret place close to Rio de Janeiro called Araial do Cabo where you can take a boat to 4 beatiful islands, white sand, turquoise water, unoccupied. Another amazing place in Brazil is close to Salvador, it is a hippie village called “Aldeia dos Hippie”, no electrocity in there, all the small (about 20) houses built from recycled material. Amazing nature, amazing people!
    Best luck in your trips and it would be great to meet you!
    Let me know if you go to South America

    January 25, 2015 at 9:54 pm

    Hey Brooke!
    As a proud half Italian – half Bulgarian, I recommend you my two home countries ! 🙂 South Italy is really amazing – starting from Palermo,Sicily, a trip to mount Etna ( the volcano is still active ) and the Aeolian Islands (Lipari, Panarea, Stromboli); then heading to Salerno, Sorrento, The Capri Island or the so called Amalfi Coast . And you can finish with Napoli. These are some of the most magnificent places in Italy, where the mountains meets the sea.
    Second advice – Bulgaria. Like Serbia, my country is a little but underrated. But once you visit the mountains and the magical small cities that preserved a hundred years of history and tradition, you’ll fall in love! Black Sea has also some hidden gems on the bulgarian coast like one of the oldest Eurepean cities – Nessabar.
    Italy is not only Rome, Milan,Venice and Florence. And Europe is not only where the biggest cities are. The real adventures are hidden in the less explored places!
    XO, Ivelina ♥

    January 25, 2015 at 9:42 pm

    Tokyooooo! I so want to see you in tokyo and tell all the pretty must see places!!
    Also Strasbourg, France, because this is were I live and this is so beautiful! But be sure to come at christmas season, for the christmas market, etc (pretty much like germany actually, you must know the history I think!)
    Much love, can’t wait to read you!

    January 25, 2015 at 9:42 pm

    What about Brazil?

    January 25, 2015 at 9:36 pm

    Morocco! And definitely more vlogs xxx

    Philippines please? I want to meet and greet you Brooke, i get inspired everytime i read your blogs. I want to hear more stories from you. I would be glad if you visit our country and have a cup of coffee? 🙂 hopefully I’ll see you soon? 🙂

    A fan and a fulltime reader of your blogs.
    Love lots,

    January 25, 2015 at 8:53 pm

    Hi Brooke!

    You should add Colombia to your list of South American countries! It’s absolutely beautiful with a great culture (Bogota, Cartagena, Medellin, etc.). I’d also love to see you visit Canada (my home country) – you would love it there! Montreal, Niagara Falls, Ottawa, Quebec City, and both the west and east coasts are great.
    And of course, you should come back to Paris for a visit. I’ll be living here for the next 5 months and I’d love to meet you!

    Cheers and safe travels!

    January 25, 2015 at 8:51 pm

    Hi Brooke,
    So glad you’re thinking about Mexico! It’s anamazing country! Make sure you get some culture in Mexico City, and some amazing nature and views at the beaches! Riviera Maya and the Pacific are a must!

    January 25, 2015 at 8:51 pm

    You should come to Norway!!! I would love to show you my hometown and maybe fix something so I can show you the rest of the country aswell 🙂 anyways, you are more then welcome to Norway

    January 25, 2015 at 8:39 pm

    When I finish school, I’m thinking of going around Australia and visiting all our cool places. It would be really cool if you spent some time in the outback or visiting towns and smaller cities. I really liked your recent posts about places to see in Tasmania and I have added a few to my travel list!!

    Hallo aus Deutschland 🙂
    I really love to hear that you will be going to Sri Lanka because to me it’s my favorite country in the whole world. Don’t miss the temple in Candy where they have a tooth from Buddha. Also there’s an elephant orphanage close to Candy and honestly: is there anything cuter in this world than baby elephants?
    Cuba is a huge adventure as well and completely changed my political views.
    And please don’t miss Nepal because it’s on the top of the list of countries I want to visit!

    Also for your first question: I enjoy watching your travel vlogs 🙂

    Gute Reise, that’s German and means have a nice trip :*

    January 25, 2015 at 8:38 pm

    Hi Brooke, I am a 24 old girl from the Netherlands and could highly recommend Central-America. I travelled Mexico, Cuba, Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama by myself and I loved every bit of it. Especially Guatemala really stole my heart. Most tourists tend to go to Mexico and Costa Rica but I can assure you that the other countries have so much more hidden gems.

      January 27, 2015 at 3:40 pm

      Jaimy, glad to hear you liked Guatemala so much! I’m headed there in a couple months. Then I’ll be in Rome and Florence this summer.

      Brooke, I just started following your blog, so I don’t know if you’ve been to Chicago yet or not. But let me know if you head this way.

    January 25, 2015 at 8:08 pm

    Hi Brooke! I have been following your journey around the world this year and you are a true inspiration! You should definetly explore Andalucia, the south of Spain. There are many historical and touristic cities you should visit: Málaga/Marbella (my hometown!), Seville, Cordoba and Granada. I advise you to come over summer! It is different to the places you have visited in Europe and you have not been here yet. I hope you read this and plan a trip over here! Xxx

      January 25, 2015 at 8:35 pm

      By the way you should visit Madrid too! Spain is the third most visited country in the world (after the USA and France) for some reason! Xxx

    January 25, 2015 at 8:04 pm

    Loving the travel bug across time zones. Let me know if you’re heading to Mumbai on your trip to India.

    January 25, 2015 at 8:01 pm

    Great plan in regards to not making long term plans. I’d like to see more vlogs

    January 25, 2015 at 7:58 pm

    Hej Brooke,

    I definitely recommend Iceland. It’s such a gorgeous place on Earth. Since I love Scandinavia, I very much enjoyed your posts about Finland – I WANT MORE! Travel to Norway & Sweden as both come with stunning nature.
    Maybe you could also do some road trips around England or France, both countries have so much to offer, a lot more than London or Paris.
    And I prefer reading about it and looking at your pictures as I often read your blog during classes/work… ehem. Videos are unfortunately too obvious 😉

    Keep going, I would love to meet you as I am obsessed with traveling, too.
    All the best,

    January 25, 2015 at 7:21 pm

    You need to visit York. The most incredible place I’ve lived –

    Also, I’d be interested in an article about how to make transiting through airports an easier experience. I’m taking 9 flights over the next 5 weeks and am dreading the constant queing and security checks that will be taking place.

    January 25, 2015 at 7:07 pm

    Hey 🙂
    Snow is falling in the Austrian Alps, why not staying St. Johann im Pongau for a ski trip?

    January 25, 2015 at 6:54 pm

    Come to Kenya! We have some of the most stunning beaches in the world and the Masai Mara too…would be lovely to have you here! I love watching your vlogs and videos – more of those please! And your photographs are stunning – you get them right everytime. You inspire me to leave my mundane desk job and revel in my wanderlust and I hope one day I am brave enough to have a year to myself, exploring all the countries I really want to go to! Bon voyage for 2015!

    January 25, 2015 at 6:50 pm

    I can’t describe how excited I am that Seoul is on your list!! Hopefully you can come for a week or more to really experience a good chunk of what the city has to offer (AND come back in the future to see other parts of Korea!). Don’t know what you have planned or when, but it’d be awesome to meet you in person. Also, if you come in September/October, you could definitely go to Seoul Fashion Week.

    As for what I want to see more of: more tips (a lot about style too since one of the key things that attracted me to WoW is how you travel and maintain your style), more people you meet, and more blogs.

    January 25, 2015 at 6:27 pm

    Please visit the Philippines!

    January 25, 2015 at 6:23 pm

    I would love to watch more of your vlogs! I love watching them, it feels like I’m in a different country when I’m just in my bedroom

    January 25, 2015 at 6:07 pm

    I would love for you to make more videos/vlogs and more review type posts of different places you’ve been. Even more city guides would be great! I would love to see WOW come to the Pacific Northwest, obviously I’m biased because I’m from here but just check out the instragram feeds of a few local photographers and you will fall in love. ( &

    I also think it would be awesome for WOW to be in Mexico for the day of dead. Or exploring Peru!

      Samantha Elisabeth
      January 25, 2015 at 6:55 pm

      Mexico for Day of the Dead would be so cool!

    January 25, 2015 at 6:05 pm

    You should defenitely go back to England! The Lake District is gorgeous in autumn 🙂 And Brighton in the South is lovely. Have you ever thought of going to a festival? Sziget festival in Budapest is the best, with many cool artists and full with travel freaks, including me 🙂 And ofcourse the south of The Netherlands is a must, more forests and they know how to party! Hope to meer you myself too and hear all your stories live 🙂

    January 25, 2015 at 6:01 pm

    Hi Brooke! I have been an avid reader of your blog for a long time, and I absolutely love it! I LOVE to travel as much as you do, and went travelling for 6 months in 2012. I think you are such a wonderful person and your blog is so informative and inspiring (both your aims might I add). I would love to see more vlogs as I love watching those because they give you an even deeper insight into your trips, and also about people you meet. Also I think you could do more posts on food from different countries, as in you could do food diaries. It would be super cool if it was possible to do reader meet ups some how!? In terms of places to visit I’d love to see you in the Amalfi Coast (Italy), Spain, any and everywhere in California (US) & Mexico. Thank you for being so great!

    January 25, 2015 at 5:59 pm

    You have to go to Santorini! And the Galapagos Islands. And definitely Costa Rica!!!!

    hi Brooke,

    I’m from South Africa and I live in a small town called Upington in the Kalahari.
    I think you would love it here, we have a lot of wild animals which you can see on safari.
    If you ever do come this way, let me know and I’ll show you around =)

    January 25, 2015 at 5:48 pm

    California in the spring or summer! Any time is a great time to visit but spring and summer are the best! A visit to Orange County in Southern Ca would be great to see you do! First, we have Disneyland! Second, some of the best beaches (Huntington, Newport, Laguna)! Thrid, Baseball (Go Angels)! The list goes on and beyond So Ca. Drive the coast from San Fransisco all the way south (Big Sur is so amazingly beautiful), drive through the Redwoods in the North, wine tasting on the central coast or in the Temecula valley. So many amazing things to explore.
    Wish you well on all your travels and can’t wait to see where they take you. You have been such a great inspiration to watch on the roads less and well traveled, thank you for taking us along.

    Hi Brooke,
    I’ll be traveling to Toronto and Montreal, Canada for the first time in July. I would be stoked to wander around the city with you for a day!

    January 25, 2015 at 5:34 pm

    Come visit us in Turkey…see the Grand Bazaar from an insider’s view (our family is currently a fifth generation grand bazaar jewellery family). Then, make a short trip to Georgia (the country) and Armenia…truly beautiful countries with so much history and culture.

    January 25, 2015 at 5:27 pm

    the not too planned plans are always the best ones and I wish you the best in all your explorations. I am a traveling addict as well…
    All your places sound amazing. I’m from Philadelphia but have lived in Seattle/Paris/New Orleans – visit the PNW this summer if you can. Breathtakingly beautiful with amazing food. I love Cleveland as well, to the commenter above. New England is also beautiful, especially in the fall. (Boston! And Maine). I Will be traveling to Greece / -Turkey / Romania/Serbia / ??? & Paris this summer if at any point you find yourself in any of those places it would be nice to meet up as I’m crossing paths there with other worldwide travelers. Also looking to run a half marathon on the Great Wall either this may or next. Also Cuba might be a good idea especially with embargoes being lifted – it’s antique now but might not be that way forever.

    January 25, 2015 at 5:25 pm

    Wow, it looks like you have some excellent plans and ideas in place! I’ve been to some and I’m sure you’ll love them. If you can make it to Boston while you’re in the States, I’d love to meet up with you! Your adventure helped inspire my own travels and blog 🙂

    January 25, 2015 at 5:25 pm

    I hope to see you in 2016 when my adventure starts!!

    You reallllyyyy need to come to Canada. I know you have had a bad experience with Air Canada but don’t let that affect you! Also, you’ve mentioned wanting to visit British Columbia (I don’t blame you- I’d love to go as well) but you should come to Toronto! You would love it. The restaurants, the people, the cultures, the attractions… It’s all great. It’s a smaller version of New York City with less pollution and a ton of polite people. Your Canadian readers would love it. Xoxo

    January 25, 2015 at 5:22 pm

    Brooke come to southern India! Would love to meet you and take a selfie maybe. 😀 which cities are u visiting in India?

    January 25, 2015 at 5:18 pm

    Brooke you definately need to come to New Zealand! I can show you around 🙂 Check out my blog for a taste!

    January 25, 2015 at 5:14 pm

    Vancouver! You could also take a side trip to Whistler from Vancouver. I recently moved to Utah and I’ve been told that the national parks here are AMAZING but I have yet to check them out. There are 5 national parks within the same area and they are all vastly different. I would like to see more Vlogs from WOW! I also like to see any and all travel tips that you post! 🙂

    January 25, 2015 at 5:09 pm

    Hey Brooke! When are you coming to Singapore? 😀 and, visit Canadaaaaaa when you drop by the USA. It’s amazing, I promise!

    January 25, 2015 at 5:01 pm

    Please please please come to New Zealand!!!!! I would do anything to meet you. Honestly, my life would be complete if I got to meet you! You are my favourite blog and such an inspiring person! I would show you all the best places in Auckland and other places if you like! New Zealand is absolutely amazing and will take your breath away!xx

    January 25, 2015 at 5:00 pm

    Hi Brooke! I’m a 20-yr-old Aussie female traveller and I’m going on my first huge solo mission this year. I’m starting in Beijing and catching the Trans-Siberian railway through the Mongolian Steppe to Russia before heading down through Eastern Europe (much of which is inspired by your reviews of Eastern Europe…Bosnia & Herzegovina here I come!) and finishing in Turkey on my 21st birthday! I would absolutely love to run into you somewhere along the way!

    Also, Sri Lanka is definitely a good choice- it’s the most beautiful and diverse country I’ve ever been to!

    Liv xx

    January 25, 2015 at 4:53 pm

    I would absolutely love to meet you in person Brooke! It would be nice to have another friend I could talk endlessly with about travel and not feel like I’m boring them haha. You leave Bali just as I’m about to head there but if you ever find your way in Sydney in the next year I’d love to show you a favourite eat of mine. All the best on your travels Brooke!

    Reno, Nevada, USA!! Only 45 minutes from the wonnnnnderful Lake Tahoe and some awesome aesthetics (:

    January 25, 2015 at 4:50 pm

    I love Boston and Washington Dc. Theres so much American history there. Also love Chicago. Its close to my home, Wisconsin (Americas Dairyland). Ive been to Canada a bit. Niagra Falls is a must but I really love Alberta and British Columbia. They are breathtaking! Id love to see you go to any of these places in addition to Iceland. I plan on going there later this year and love to hear your opinions.

    January 25, 2015 at 4:43 pm

    Hey Brooke!

    I’m heading to Burma and India for two months, I can’t wait to see your experiences there to inspire mine 🙂

    January 25, 2015 at 4:41 pm

    Hey Brooke! I love watching your vlogs and tutorials, I love seeing hidden little gems and tourist spots in your videos. I also love reading your blogs mainly the motivational ones and ones that talk about your career and stories on the road(so excited for your book!). I love seeing you in colder countries, so all over Europe(maybe Slovenia, Iceland, Switzerland, Netherlands and Austria would be awesome- because there my favourite!) but New Zealand would be an awesome one for your itinerary, I’ve been there a couple times and am in LOVE with the scenery(I think it would also showcase this beautiful country to your international readers as well since it is quite underrated? Can’t remember the word

    Hi Brooke
    Loving your post !! As a fellow Tasmanian even though I am on King Island I love my travel. If you get the chance you should get to Cuba I spent a month there last year. It is an amazing place and a real microcosm of a past age but it is changing fast as the lure from the tourist dollar and goverment and social change. Also the possibility of it being opened up to the US again. This is one place I think you would really want to see now.
    Best Regards and Safe Travels. Nick

    Staying in sg & hope to see you when you’re here!!!

    January 25, 2015 at 4:12 pm

    If you could talk a little bit more about the costs of travelling where you visit i would find that beyond helpful in planning some trips! Love your blog!

    I absolutely love your vlogs!! Such a cool insight into your daily life and the places you visit! I’m defintely a little bit Europe-obsessed and hope you make it back there, but can’t wait to see your travels in Asia! Definitely hoping that you make it to Melbourne :D:D

    January 25, 2015 at 4:09 pm

    Hey Brooke–
    Honestly, I feel like reading blogs, watching vlogs, and looking at pictures isn’t enough sometimes; it makes it seem distant, and maybe restricted, so you should come to the US! The gulf coast has beautiful beaches and resorts. Plus, I’m not far and would love to meet and talk with you about how you got started and the path you have chosen to take. I’m almost twenty years old and when you want to pack up and travel, sometimes having someone to talk to–to help guide you–helps give motivation to taking action and pursuing your goals! You are great, and truly an inspiration! Keep doing what your doing, and we’ll keep watching–hopefully joining you soon.

    January 25, 2015 at 4:09 pm

    if your in ab-dab look at air Seychelles….it will get you from the uae to africa via a few islands. I teach there, there is not much on our island (mahe) but it’s another country scratched off the map xx

    January 25, 2015 at 3:48 pm

    I love seeing your vlogs on Youtube! Also, come to Milwaukee, Wi. Or Chicago 🙂

    January 25, 2015 at 3:42 pm

    I LOVE YOU but why don’t you want to come to Canada!?
    I was surprised you want to go around the USA more. It’s just like Canada but not as beautiful and people in Canada are so nice! 😀
    We will love you and show you all the natural beauty here!

    Hii Brooke! I would love to meet you if you ever come to Ireland. I’ve been here since September, but it’s been a huge part of my heart since 2013. It’s beautiful here. The people are wonderful and there’s such beautiful scenery… You’d love it, I think. Other places I think you should go are Iceland, Scandinavia, and eastern Europe. Bali and Australia are definitely on my list to visit. Thanks for living my dream!!

    January 25, 2015 at 3:33 pm

    Hey Brooke!
    You should come to Canada, specifically Alberta and British Columbia. In the two provinces you can get both the Rockies and the beautiful mountain wildlife as well as the Canadian coast! There is so much beautiful wildlife down here, plus some great ski hills in the mountains in the winter. In Alberta, there are 5 national parks, all of which are amazing. Here is a link with some more information about travel in Alberta: Also, if you visit Calgary between July 3-12, 2015, you can visit the Calgary Stampede, which is huge, and super fun!
    For British Columbia, there is a huge amount of wildlife, and a ton of cool attractions, here’s a link with more information about places to visit in BC
    If you decide to come to Calgary, let me know, and I could show you around or help you find the best places to visit! 🙂

    January 25, 2015 at 3:30 pm

    Come to Canada! I will show you around !!!!

    Iceland, Greenland if possible would be incredible, Canada, Japan, China or one of the Stan’s.
    Would be amazing to follow your journey there!

    January 25, 2015 at 3:26 pm

    you should do a road trip around Australia! you haven’t seen the world till you have seen your own country!

    January 25, 2015 at 3:15 pm

    I’m planning a trip to Asia for later in the year and would love to see your tips for places like Cambodia, Vietnam and Singapore.
    I live in New Zealand though, and always love to see travel bloggers’ opinions and photos of our beautiful country – so seeing you here would be a plus too 🙂

      January 25, 2015 at 3:18 pm

      Also – anywhere in Europe! I love that continent and haven’t had much of a chance to explore the east yet (apart from Croatia and surrounding countries) so I’ve been fascinated reading your blog and ‘travelling’ there with you 🙂

    January 25, 2015 at 3:08 pm

    Hey Brooke! Since your trip to Texas was cut short last time, we’d love for you to come and enjoy Texas, in particular Austin! Not only is Austin the capital of Texas, it’s also one of the fastest growing cities in the USA! While we are commemorated for our BBQ (which is pretty delectable) we have so many vegan friendly options it’s crazy! I think Austin would be a great fit for you as we are know for being a little quirky (okay a lot) so come on down and we will give you a big Texas welcome because as they say everything is bigger in Texas!

    You should definitely go to Japan and visit: Nakamise Market (and the ice-cream shop around the corner), Tokyo tower and Hiroshima Peace Park. Definitely travel around Japan on the bullet train and make sure to visit all the Buddha statues!! I can email you some of my things from Japan that could show you exactly where to go 🙂

    January 25, 2015 at 3:03 pm

    I love watching all of your videos and reading your blogs so just keep doing what you’re doing haha! BUuuuut…. You need to come to Canada!! Especially Vancouver! There is so much to do here and I’d love to show you around:P You could do a road trip of sorts from California up the coast through Oregon (includes Portland etc) and Washington (Seattle, etc), all the way to Vancouver! I think that’d be super fun! Also the Pacific North-West doesn’t get very cold so don’t expect snow or anything in the spring, summer, fall or even most of winter!
    Can’t wait to follow along on your journey in 2015!

    Go where your heart takes you, Brooke! I love all of your posts, but would love to see some more personal stories. I know you are writing your book which contains all of that, but perhaps a few tales here and there about what you experienced would be great as well (and perhaps even serve as a teaser, if you write another book for your 2015 travels!)

    Keep up the great work. I just adore your photos, and you inspire me to take more selfies in 2015! If our paths should cross, I would love to meet you.

    January 25, 2015 at 3:00 pm

    I am a spontaneous traveller, I always find the best trips are those where you just turn up and then decide where you want to stay and what you want to see and how long for!

    Anywhere is South East Asia is a must see!

    January 25, 2015 at 2:57 pm

    Hi Brooke! Some of the countries you’re planning to visit sound awesome. I would love to see you visit Greece, Norway, Egypt, and of course my home, Canada! 😀
    Love all your beautiful pictures, I really enjoy your vlogs!

    January 25, 2015 at 2:55 pm

    Hello Brooke!

    Please come and visit Malaysia! Love to see you write something about my country!

    Hello Brooke,

    I am a little jealous of you seeing the world. I am thankful for your posts, it make me feel as if I am inside your luggage. After some of my family circumstances are settled, I would love to pack my bag and go out there.

    Try to visit the Philippines. That is where I was born and raised. I have long left the country to work here in Australia but the Philippines is home. Beyond the political issues and traffic and well, other negative stuff on the news, the Philippines is a beautiful country to explore — all 7000 ++ islands that constitutes the archipelago. Go ou of the city. You will see magnificent beaches and hills. It will be great if people can see the country’s majestic splendour through your eyes.

    Thanks for being such an inspiration!

    Come to Mexico!!! There’s a lot to see, eat and do here! If you’re ever in the city of Monterrey, do let me know! I’d love to meet you and show you my town! I’m a 20 year-old wanderluster, blogger, and a big fan of yours!

    All the best Brooke!!! Hope to see you this year!

    January 25, 2015 at 2:47 pm

    I am a soul traveller – meaning, I travel from my lounge where I watch the travel channel and read your blog with passion. So please photos and videos of places that “whispered to your soul”, that left a footprint of intense meaning and spriritual awakening.

    January 25, 2015 at 2:45 pm

    I would love if you visited Phi Phi Island in Thailiand, Ireland, and more of the Nordic Countries!! It would be cool to see those pics and blogs about them ❤️

    January 25, 2015 at 2:39 pm

    Hey Brooke.
    Avid fan and fellow wanderluster been at it for 2 years now. Really want to see you do some of the places you mentioned: right from the top to bottom of Japan, as it is next on my list and your expertise, travel guides etc are very good. Also central America – Nicaragua, Costa & Cuba…. Maybe add incredible Jamaica

    You have done most of south America but could you add Columbia to that list – CARTAGENA in particular. You’ve done pretty much all of the western world now except two very large parts left to explore and write up about with style for us…. New Zealand, you could take a week in both the N & S, I will be there over our Aussie winter season. And of course Canada – particularly love to hear about the east coast (Montreal, Quebec, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia) along with the hotspots amongst BC & Alberta provinces.

    Further – Other places you have mentioned before in the middle east – Jordan, Egypt, Isreal would love to see ya do… and also Myanmar (Burma) and if you can manage to get in somehow Bhutan haha!!

    January 25, 2015 at 2:37 pm

    I’d love to see more blogs and travel guides in 2015!
    I’d love for you to travel to Iceland, Norway and Greece too! And maybe London in late 2015 so I can meet you! 🙂 Oh, & maybe more of the Northeast U.S., i.e. Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island…I live in New England and it’s the best part of the U.S! Ohh and maybe the Azores (off of Portugal). Turkey, too! Sooo many places. Anywhere you go though, I know it’ll be amazing!

    January 25, 2015 at 2:37 pm

    Hey Brooke! I’d love to see more blog posts about people you meet during your travels, and the stories they share with you. I love learning about people and their experiences, and I’m sure it would be incredible to read! I also highly recommend visiting Guatemala. It doesn’t seem like an obvious choice, but I myself was there this past summer and the country has definitely taken part of my heart.

    Best wishes, and happy travels!

    January 25, 2015 at 2:36 pm

    If you loved Patagonia, then you would love to see many of the National Parks in the USA. Yellowstone and Canyonlands are extraordinary, to name a few.

    January 25, 2015 at 2:35 pm

    Brooke you NEED to hit up Canada. It doesn’t look like you’ve spent much time in our beautiful country and it is a must do 🙂 British Columbia & Alberta is where it is at!


    January 25, 2015 at 2:29 pm

    Nicaragua should have priority over Costa Rica.
    Portland, Oregon – pacific northwest is best.

    Need a tour guide for any of the three? Let me know 🙂

    All of them, in answer to your first question! Places I’d love to visit through you: Greek Isles, Wales, Madagascar, Finland, Nepal, and Iceland to name a few. If you go to Wales, you could easily sneak over to Ireland 🙂 In the United States, I would recommend the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, Glacier National Park in Montana, Crater Lake in Oregon and Lake Tahoe (the Nevada side has sandy beaches). Yes, I have always lived in the western United States and love the outdoors.

    January 25, 2015 at 2:26 pm

    You should come to Cleveland, Ohio! There’s so much to see and experience. Also, we have some awesome vegan ice cream places!

    January 25, 2015 at 2:23 pm

    NEW ZEALAND! Seriously.

    January 25, 2015 at 2:13 pm

    Hey Brooke!

    I’m a 20-year-old girl from Thailand who’s a major wanderluster 🙂 (50 countries and counting!) Let me know if you’re in Bangkok. Would love to meet up to discuss travel plans, trips, and such things! Can also take you around town + to the best places for food.

    Let me know!
