Is anyone else at all freaked out that it’s been a whole year since Marcella, Isabel, Van and I started Wanderful Wednesday …..
Sure, it’s super exciting that our linkup has made it this long, but it’s also crazy to think that over a year ago Marcella and I met for the very first time [in real life] in a Santiago café to put this little project of ours in motion!
During this past year of life down here in Santiago, Chile, I’ve so looked forward to tuning in every week and feeding my never-ending wanderlust. To letting my mind wander. To traveling all over the world without lifting a finger or spending a cent. Getting to know you guys in this amazing little space of the internet that we call the blog-o-sphere, making connections and friends from all over the world, has been one hell of an adventure!
I celebrated Easter in Prague and got to travel home for Christmas in New York City. I was able to visit exhibits that I unfortunately missed while they were in my town. I tasted sweet treats in Vienna, explored street food markets in London and got cultural with cuisine in Bejing. I relived my perfect night in the Sahara Desert and rewalked the quaint cobblestone streets of Lisbon. I also finally got to make that sought after stopover in Iceland.
And not only did I travel, but I was inspired and I learned. I picked up some new handy Instagram tips and was introduced to the concept of Creative Place Making. I was reminded about the weirdness of Reverse Culture Shock and the Sweetness of Sharing.
You all and this wanderful link up have become such a big part of my life. I think about you often and consider many of you friends. And so, we’re taking today to celebrate all of us in this community!
We asked you to take a photo of yourself, where you live or where you are traveling, holding a sign wishing Wanderful Wednesday a happy birthday!
