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 working a fully remote 9-5 job 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.

I grew up in Northern Minnesota and previously I lived in the “Twin Cities” suburbs near Minneapolis, Minnesota. But, I 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. We started a YouTube channel to chronicle our relocation journey or as we have coined it “Our Grand Adventure” and will be sharing everything travel on YouTube, so be sure to subscribe and turn on notifications so you don’t miss a thing! I travel throughout the United States & worldwide but you better believe I always have a trip near or far on deck.
