There’s some big news to share on The Department of Wandering today.

I’m joining the World of Wanderlust Team!


If you follow me on Facebook, you may have seen my announcement a few weeks ago that I am joining the World of Wanderlust Team this year. Brooke Saward, founder of WOW is expanding her brand in 2015 and has hired a few carefully selected contributing writers based around different parts of the world to bring WOW readers the most up-to-date, expert content from key locations.

The new team includes:

Me — The Expat

Emma Bates — The Londoner

Emma Kate Codrington — The Aussie

♥ Kate Thorn — The Everywhereist

Brooke has been travelling solo around the world since January 2014 and I’ve been following along on her inspiring journey through her blog and through Instagram for a while now. When I learnt that she would be spending a few months in Berlin late last year, I reached out to her. We hung out for a while, had breakfast at a special Berlin brunch event and swapped travel stories.

This is hugely exciting news, given the significant influence of WOW in the travel blogging world. In 2015 over 6 million people will visit WOW, with over 500,000 + unique visitors and over 1 million page views per month.
