Hi! I’m Heather & I’d like to Welcome you to WanderLust in Real Life! I aim to help you fulfill the wanderlust in your life by providing itinerary inspiration, travel tips & insight on tasty food and drinks along the journey. I’m always seeking out craft beer especially while I travel!

I’m a corporate professional constantly having wanderlust while I’m living my real life. Hence, the idea for “WanderLust in Real Life” was born. I didn’t grow up traveling much and found a passion for travel and other countries in college. I studied abroad twice and since then always have adventures planned near or far.

Previously I lived in the “Twin Cities” of Minnesota. But, am relocating to DFW (Fort Worth) Texas in 2022. In between, my husband and I along with our dog will be on an extended road trip in our travel trailer. I travel throughout the United States & worldwide. Check out my latest blog posts below!
