Hello, I’m Jenny! Welcome to thewander-lust.com where you’ll find a recollection of my travels, events and life’s experiences. Initially, this blog was established as a means to keep up with my own interests in capturing precious moments of my travels. I love taking photos and videos each time I visit a place. I enjoy editing and compiling all those captured scenes. But with time, and little effort this blog has evolved into something much more intricate and meaningful.
It’s definitely fun to go somewhere unfamiliar and escape from our daily routines for a while. I travel to discover and experience new cultures, taste new cuisines, and photograph artistic scenes. I’m the budget traveler type. I always do my research before any trip and make online bookings way ahead, well it worked for me in saving some penny. I make my own itineraries based on what I want to see and experience. I’m genuinely curious – I have a list of cities and countries I want to explore.
Do you prefer to see where the wind takes you? Or are you a stickler for a detailed plan? I would say, I love to see where the wind takes me. Although I make detailed daily itineraries but I don’t just strictly stick to my plans. I am flexible and spontaneous in a way. But I always make sure that I’m enjoying every bit of the trip.
Traveling isn’t a one-size-fits-all kind of deal. And that’s the way it should be. What kind of traveler are you?
As I’ve already mentioned, I’m the budget traveler type yet the stylish one. It can always be tempting to throw your new outfits in your suitcase before you head off on your travels (especially if you can picture the perfect sunset shot of you wearing it on the ‘gram). I love playing with colors but most of the time, I stick to darker tones. When it comes to keeping stylish, dark colors – you’ll be able to wear them time and time again without noticing every single speck of dirt and dust. Mix it up with vests, shirts and long sleeves and you’ll have a seemingly limitless amount of outfit variations. After all, variety is the spice of life.
We’re all unique, what is one traveler’s idea of style heaven can be seen as another’s hell. Regardless of your fashion statement, comfort should always come first, and style will naturally follow. Imagine if you’re hopping around on long bus journeys then the priority is to feel comfortable and safe without strangely placed zips and buckles prodding you from all the wrong angles. Always remember, travel style is in the eye of the beholder.
Your thoughts? ❤
Fell free to drop your comments or suggestions. I always look forward to reading those even on the days I am swamped with work.
It’s been ages since I last blogged. The last time I checked was I got so caught up with the wedding planning of not just 1 but 2 weddings. But thankfully all done! Yaaas! Over a year ago since I last logged into my dashboard and wrote down my thoughts, travel stories, inspirations, and musings. I never even realized that my domain has already expired. HAHA! Yes, that looong of hiatus! But now, my fingertips are way too excited spilling some posts for my return. And as for my come back, help me welcome my new site name, thewander-lust.com former stylishwanderer.com
I’m on a mission to get back into my social media life, although I’m not going to set myself targets of blogging or Instagramming every single day, as I just won’t keep to that frequency because first things first I work full time. My job has and will always come first, it pays the bills, it’s what I’ve worked hard for and it’s what I am passionate about. However, I’ve slowly come to realize that it’s not the only thing that I should focus my time and energy on. There genuinely is more to life.
It is important to completely switch off, take time out, travel, go on a holiday or just spend a night in front of the TV, not the computer or phone. Having said that, there were so many things that happened to my life a few months back and I can’t wait to share it all here.
So now, let me fill this site again with the things that I love doing. Help me welcome myself back into blogging! Yahoo! HAHA I definitely will keep this site up-to-date. Yasss! I swear to that! :p And do welcome my vlog channel too but not at the moment yet.lol! Meanwhile, allow me to make a lot of catchup posts.
Time flies, that’s for sure. Well.. well, dusting off spiderwebs from this blog isn’t going to be an easy task perhaps. Apparently this site had tumbled down for the past few months and I feel super bad. I really didn’t have the luxury of time to sit down, make drafts, edit photos and videos for the last quarter of the year as I’ve started a new job. It wasn’t easy to start off but eventually I got the hang of it.Reflecting over the past year. 2017 has had its highs and lows. I’m grateful for the ups, the downs, and the ins and outs. I lost a job but found what I was looking for. I got engaged. I’ve traveled fairly. I seized opportunities and embraced challenges. I waved goodbye to 2017. Ecstatic for what the new year will bring. Cheers to more travel tips and stories, bold reviews, food hunt, fashion posts and more!
I’m a Nurse by Profession who also has a blog. If by definition, owning a blog makes a blogger, then I suppose I am a blogger. It’s fascinating how the label ‘blogger’ evolved into? I’ve never heard it 10 years back. Ooops!
I’m an Expat. Filipina Nurse living & working overseas and that alone allows me to have the unusual mid 20’s life journey. Imagine how is it gonna be like living away from home? I take it, blogging about such would be something riveting.
Fashion infatuated and consumed by wanderlust. Strangely, I like to shop more on shoes and clothing but not make-up. I can survive with only a lip tint and a face cream on and I’m good to go.
