About the Blog: Start Here

Welcome to Words of a Wanderer!

This blog was born in December of 2011 when I had a burning desire to share my travel experiences. This blog perfectly combines 2 of my passions: writing and traveling. My focus is on my authentic experiences and interactions while traveling. Although I sometimes include a train timetable or brief itinerary in my posts, scheduling is not my focus. I believe we have our richest travel experiences when we’re not set on following a timetable. I mostly write about the places I visit, but my blog is not limited to destinations.
