A Tick off my Bucket List

  Hey fellow Wanderlusters, my name is Sophia, I'm a 22 year old Wanderluster from Germany. In the last couple of years I was lucky enough to explore many places that I always wanted to visit. I had my first surf lesson in Kauai, took a busy subway in New York, tasted the best pizza in Rome, spotted a bear in the Banff national park on his morning stroll and walked along the Seine at midnight.  I love to see new places, get to know other cultures, learn other language and make new friends around the world. Traveling is like reading my favourite book, I can't put it down because I'm to curious to see what is happening next. Every...

How to do Business Travel in just a Carry-On

Hey there! Jennii Lyn from Canteens and Carabiners here. This week I was sent to Phoenix for a three day business conference. I was able to pack everything I needed in a carry on and a personal item. Here’s how I did it:The Carry OnI took my Aleia 22 North Face backpacking pack. I try and keep my travel as simple as possible, and I don’t have separate luggage just for travel. Backpacking packs are PERFECT for carry on items. Some airlines have started charging for carry-ons (lame - right?) But my purse and backpack were both counted as personal items and I wasn’t charged anything extra. It fit just as much as a normal carry on luggage item would...

Why People Who Travel are Happier

You’re a dreamer. A wannabe adventurer. You’re lusting over greener pastures. Instead of sangria in San Sebastian you’re admiring your new packet of post-it notes that just arrived from the stationary order you put in last week with your new receptionist.

What to do When Nothing is Going According to Plan

Hello Wanderlusters! Jennii Lyn here. About a year ago, the hubs and I took a trip to Yosemite National Park, and...it rained. ALL weekend. The half dome trail was closed and we got SNOWED out of rock climbing. We’d been planning the trip for months - checking the weather, planning out our visit, researching the best trails and climbing routes - but we were SO not expecting SNOW to close down some of the roads. Such a bummer. So, what do you do when things don’t go as planned? Some of the most common traveler problems include:    •    Weather Problems    •    Lost Luggage    •    Flight Delays/Cancellations    •    Lost Documents/Passports    •    Health IssuesPlan AheadThe best way to avoid problems, is to...
