I’m so excited to welcome you to my blog – The Wandering Aesthete!
A little bit about myself – my name is Lauren and I live in Sydney, Australia. I’ve lived in Sydney for most of my life, apart from living & working overseas for half a year in Manila in the Philippines in 2016.
Up until my current phase of life trying to master this whole “adulting” stage, my only overseas trip had been to Singapore when I was 7 years old; however since the end of 2015, I have been happily infected with the “travel bug” and have travelled to these countries so far:
AUSTRIA – Hallstatt, Salzburg & Vienna
CROATIA – Dubrovnik
FINLAND – Ivalo (Lapland)
FRANCE – Bordeaux & Paris
GREECE – Athens & Santorini
ITALY – Florence & Rome
PHILIPPINES – Boracay, Bohol & Manila
RUSSIA – Moscow & St Petersburg
SPAIN – Barcelona
Travelling has had a profound affect on my life – it has expanded it in ways I never would have dreamt could be possible. I was inspired to start learning the French & Russian languages, connect with new people from other cultures and have experienced growth in relation to my own confidence & independence.
I’m looking forward to exploring more of Europe and would also love to visit the US, New Zealand, Canada and more amazing places in the future! Apart from loving travel, I adore photography as well – which is evident from my Insta feed!
In fact, Instagram is the platform which inspired this new passion for me and allows me to share my travel experiences – as well as photos of food and of my home town, Sydney. I’ve also always enjoyed writing, so to be able to travel, capture moments and share these, combine some of my favourite things!
I hope you enjoy your time spent here on The Wandering Aesthete blog and if you want to reach out, please feel free to contact me.
