This is, primarily, a travel blog, but I like to write about general life happiness and wellness also because the fact of the matter is that most of us can’t live our lives in a bubble where we float from one fabulous location to the next. We can’t all satiate our wanderlust at all moments, and there are days, weeks, or even months at a time where life can feel like a mundane, dreary routine of monotony.
Life inspiration can come from many places, and movies are no exception. I was thinking today about the movie Joe Versus the Volcano, which stars a young Tom Hanks and came out in 1990. Due to the age of the movie as well as the fact that it was made in a stylistic, offbeat style, the film is a little…odd. However, I’ve always loved it and considered it among my favorites. The reason for that coveted spot on my list of favorite movies is because Joe Versus the Volcano may be a really (really) cheesy movie, but it also explores themes that so many of us are familiar with…that feeling of being stuck in a tough situation that we aren’t necessarily happy with. Joe is given a strange and unique opportunity to live life to the fullest, if even just for a little while.
I’m happy to announce that today’s post is an interview with Ragnhild from Green Lights Ahead. Ragnhild is a blogger from Norway who has just finished a Gap Year and is currently in nursing school. Among her many hobbies, she has a passion for travel, which really comes through in her awesome blog where she details some of the truly amazing adventures she has been on.
I’m always on the lookout for awesome artistic inspiration, be it photography, sculpture, paintings, film, or anything else. Today I discovered the awesome Instagram of Stephan McMennamy and I just had to share it with all of you.
Have you always wished you could be one of those people who traveled the world? Have you had thoughts along the lines of, “must be nice,” or “someday when I have time and money…”?
Today I discovered the works of French photographer Vincent Bourilhon, whose delightfully surreal photos fill me with both wanderlust and a wistful longing for his delightful world.

This post is meant to give you (and me) some travel inspiration for the coming year(s). Honestly on my list are too many things and I just keep adding places. That and the fact that I have major difficulties with making choices makes me…
Niagara Falls is a beautiful, impressive, famous waterfall which is located on the border between the United States and Canada. On the U.S. side, it’s just outside Buffalo, New York, and on the Canadian side, it’s not terribly far from Toronto. I’ve always wanted to visit this natural wonder, and it would be great to combine a visit to the Falls with a tour of the region on both sides of the border. This Wanderlust Wednesday, let’s explore what a possible U.S.-Canada journey centering around Niagara Falls might look like.
There’s just something about Madagascar that intrigues me. This beautiful island off the Southeast coast of Africa is home to rain-forests, reefs, and an impressive array of unique wildlife, such as lemurs.I have a few friends who have been there and came back absolutely in love and enchanted with this place. I really hope to be able to visit for myself one day.
This Wanderlust Wednesday, let’s take a look at this amazing place in the world.
A few years ago, my parents went to Belize. I was supposed to go with them but through a combination of unfortunate circumstances, I wasn’t able to go…and I was devastated. However, looking at their photos and hearing about what a wonderful time they had really fueled my wanderlust for the small Central American country, and I’m still bound and determined to make it there someday. If you’re unfamiliar with the beauty of this amazing little country, allow me to introduce you to Belize, the topic of this week’s Wanderlust Wednesday.
