Hi and welcome to Wanderlush Travel! My name is Lori, a spontaneous, fun-loving, positive-vibe-chasing, adventure seeker from Toronto, Canada who thrives on new experiences and loves living the expat life. I’m not one to sit still for very long and I’m always on the go. I love spending time with family and friends, hanging out in parks, people watching, travelling, discovering new places, beaches, sipping coffee and vino, warm seasons and being near the ocean.
I think my desire to explore and live in different locations fully started when I moved away for school for the first time on the other side of Ontario. From there I spent a Summer working in the mountains of British Columbia to going one step further relocating to London, UK for a summer abroad in 2011. Upon returning to Canada and moving to Toronto in pursuit of a career, I felt like something was missing and yearned to experience more. That burning feeling inside led me to leave an unfulfilling job in 2017 and board a plane with a one way ticket to Australia. It was the scariest and BEST decision I’ve ever made and I had the time of my life! I was hooked.
After living and travelling for one year in Australia I wasn’t ready to stop the journey so I spent another 7 months living and working in Auckland, New Zealand. After 18 months abroad, I can fully say I’ve become a travel addict. It does amazing things for the soul. In August 2018 I returned back to Toronto to figure out what my next move would be. I realized the desire to live the expat life and keep on travelling was as strong as ever and there was no ignoring it. I’ve relocated once again to the UK! I’m so excited to start this new life abroad and explore all Europe has to offer while sharing my experiences with you!
I created Wanderlush Travel as a space to share stories and tips on travel and life abroad. I hope to inspire you to make the move to that new country you’ve been dreaming of or board that plane to your next travel destination. Let’s break through the mysteries and uncertainties of travel and discover how those dreams are closer and more easily attainable than you may think.
Thanks for stopping by!
