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.

Currently residing in the “Twin Cities” of Minnesota, I travel across the midwest (MN, WI, IA, the Dakotas), the United States & worldwide. Check out my latest blog posts below!
