The Wanderlust Chronicles
This week's featured blog comes from travel blogger and aspiring writer, Kate O'Brien. The Wanderlust Chronicles is a blog focused on current issues ongoing in Colombia and Kate's experiences with the culture. As Kate says, The Wanderlust Chronicles aims to be "very culturally sensitive, in that I make no assumptions. I would rather people read this blog to learn how to handle cultural differences in a positive way... I also hope it will excite people who are interested in living and working abroad!"
Why We Love It
Kate is far from deceiving readers when she says she has an insatiable appetite for wanderlust and exploring the world. Originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Kate has previously lived in France, Morocco, and Ghana before now calling Colombia home. The Wanderlust Chronicles captures Kate's unique experiences in this country, from actively taking a role in serious issues to describing elements of Colombian cuisine. With every topic that is brought to light on The Wanderlust Chronicles, readers are given an in-depth look at Colombian culture, atmosphere and the experiences of working abroad in this dynamic country.
If you're in search of travel motivation, there is also an entire page on the blog devoted to "wanderlust" style quotes, and they will be sure to inspire the inner explorer within you! For any travelers interested in working abroad, particularly in Colombia, The Wanderlust Chronicles has the firsthand, and unique informational resources you're looking for. Take it from Kate herself: "I believe cultural differences are some of the most beautiful and interesting things about our world, and they are my favorite things to learn about and explore." We couldn't agree more!
