Just a couple of newlyweds seeking international adventures.
For now, we’re kick-starting our careers and squirreling away funds for future travels, and looking back on the amazing experiences we’ve had in Europe and Canada (our homeland).
We love slow but adventurous travel that grants us heaps of experience and a knowledge of local life. Food – at home and abroad – is a big part of our lives and a big part of our motivation for travelling. People truly are what they eat, and a plate of pasta can tell you as much about a people as a towering cathedral.
We’re poor and young, so budget travel is our expertise. So far, Europe is our most well-explored domaine, so if you have any questions about affordable European travel, we’d be happy to answer them!
Wandergirl (WG) spends her days split between working at the library and writing, with a lot of reading, learning and dreaming tossed into the mix. She’s the Wanderlustkind wordsmith, and does a lot of reading and research into the places she and WB travel. She has been a pescatarian for two years, and is interested in finding vegan and vegetarian options abroad.

WANDERPHANT & WANDERMONKEY
Christoph the Earless Elephant and Leonard the Monkey are arguably the most well-travelled stuffed animals on the planet. They join WG and WB on many of their travels, and like trying new things and meeting new people, elephants, and monkeys.
Christoph likes peanuts, strawberries and being friendly. He dislikes when people are mean.
Leonard likes being boisterous, bananas, and posing for photos. He dislikes when people are sad and tries to make them happy.
