Welcome to Wanderlust Wendy! I’m glad you stumbled upon my blog, where I’ve kept musings from various life experiences since 2008. These days, I am based in Saigon, Vietnam with my husband, and I write about travel, life abroad, and the pursuit of living more simply and with intention.

The blog began from my time in the Peace Corps, then into days in grad school and a major life move to Shanghai, where I spent nearly six years. Travels in between have been chronicled, including the epic year of around-the-world journey. Below are some of the highlights to help you navigate through my archive. Thanks for reading!
