WanderStory x On Living Art & “Aha’s!”

I think people here have loose interpretations of time…which leaves room for improvisation and creativity.  I need to start moving with the flow…perhaps this is the universe or God’s way of telling me, “just trust where I am taking you.”

This Life Was Meant to Help Others.

Aloha. Im starting to spot a trend here. I’m back in my happy place, Hawaii and specifically Maui for vacation. For those of you that have followed my blog, you know that this is a VERY special and healing place for me. This was a place where I came to heal after incredible loss and…

Why We (Should) Wander

More than ever, we have a civic responsibility to do something greater as Wanderlusters.

Last year, I traveled to find my light again and break out of darkness that was overshadowing the new life journey I was meant to discover. Travel fed my soul, taught me a lot about myself and challenged me.

This year, I travel for Love.

My Father’s Daughter.

“Thanks for all that you do to raise us. We are not easy. We are not simple. We will talk back, we will rebel and we will probably say awful things to you as we grow up. We won’t always understand you and we definitely won’t always agree with you as long as we know each other. We know you are not perfect and we don’t expect you to be. But as much as you don’t think we are, we are watching you. We are paying attention to you and through some sort of odd familial osmosis, we are learning from you.

Thanks for showing us strength and resilience. Thanks for showing us our worth, even if you weren’t always sure of yours. While our mother has taught us love for others, you have taught us love for ourselves.

And as we walk through the life, we know that because you raised us, we will have the tools to wade through the challenges. But, also know that because of this resilience, we will also have the ability to create, seek out and live the joys ahead.

Happy Father’s Day.

The life you never knew.

  It’s been a week that I’ve been in Maui hanging out with a dear friend that I met over a year ago on this same island. He’s helped me overcome fears, encouraged me to be open-minded and intellectually challenges me. I usually give him credit as one of the people in my life who…

Aloha.

  I woke up to a cacophony of roosters this morning. The air was thick and I peered through the blinds. I could see the ocean in the distance and the sky was opening with light as the sun rose behind the mountains. Trying not to wake the house, I tiptoe outside to capture a…

These Feet.

These feet are tired and worn at the end of the day. But they have taken me far. These feet have walked and carried me through miles of happiness to heal heartbreak. These feet have walked the sidewalks of great writers and the literati, and have climbed the steps to discover the sacred heart of…

Yes, It’s Just Me. 

“Pour Une Seulement?” “Oui. It’s just me.” “Why is such a beautiful woman coming in alone? If you want, I will walk in with you. I’d be so happy to be seen with you.” “Thanks but I’m perfectly fine entering on my own and would like to keep it that way. The thought is appreciated.”…

“Paris is always a good idea”

Note: I plan on publishing a city guide within the next couple of weeks with all the fun finds and travel tips for Paris! Stay tuned! Bonjour. I always loved that line from the movie Sabrina. I think I can officially call myself a Francophile now. I’ve always liked the idea of Paris but didn’t…

Thanks.

  Bonjour! I’m about to embark on day four in Paris. I’m currently sitting in my flat in Saint Germain (land of the literati) with a cup of coffee and getting ready to map out the day ahead. I’m going to head up past Montmarte today and hopefully catch a bit of quintessential Paris that…
