A Wanderer’s Adventures is a travel & lifestyle blog dedicated to helping young women and twenty-somethings live their best life. While I was studying abroad, I found out that I’m my happiest self when traveling and exploring new places, and I know I’m not the only one. I want to encourage you to go after your dreams and help you find the inspiration you need to get there.
ABOUT THE BLOG
A few summers ago, in 2015, I started this blog as a side project for the summer between CEGEP (a Quebec thing) and university. I wanted to write about my adventures over the summer, hence the name. However, as it turned out, I realized that I had more knowledge in the college department and wanted to help others who, like me, had to go through this and didn’t really know how.
But now I’m graduating college soon, and I want to take this blog with me, wherever I go. In a way, it’s also my personal diary. It follows me throughout all of my adventures, travel-related or not. Studying abroad taught me to be more independent, but I also feel like traveling helped me find my true, happiest self. I’ve never felt better than when I was abroad, exploring the UK. And now I want to inspire you to do the same.
But maybe real-life travel is not for you. Maybe you’re more of a travel-through-books-and-blogs kind of person. That’s totally ok too! This blog is meant to inspire you to go after your dreams, whatever they are. I’m dreaming of a life of travel, and I would love to set foot in every country before I die (except maybe North Korea because, obviously).
On A Wanderer’s Adventures, you’ll find:
- Travel guides and photo diaries to help you choose your next destination
- Book recommendations that will take you to another world, from the comfort of your own home
- Like-minded people who, like you, are trying to live their best life
- A little sass and sarcasm because I have to keep things real 😉
If that sounds like your cup of tea (or whatever it is you like to drink), you’re in the right place! Think of me as your new BFF (because we’re all friends here!). I’m happy to help you figure out how to make the most out of your life, and together, we can make this life the best it can be! I’m in no way an expert, but we can go through this together and learn from each other. I’m happy to take you on my adventures with me, one book or city at a time. 😉
So, who’s the girl behind the blog? Well, hi, I’m Amélie! (No, it’s not Amelia, Emily or anything else. It’s Amélie, like the French movie with Audrey Tautou). I’m a twenty-two-year-old student from Quebec, Canada. I am studying communications with a minor in professional writing at the Université de Sherbrooke. I also studied abroad at the University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield, England (a twenty-minute train ride from London) for a semester in fall 2017. My mother tongue is French, but I’m fluent in English, as you might have guessed.
I’m a dreamer and reader. I love to play with makeup and try new beauty products. I also love to watch tv shows and movies and eat delicious food, probably a little more than I should. I work part-time at my local library. I also love to travel and discover new places. That’s why you will sometimes find me talking about books, my most recent Netflix obsessions, or my adventures!
