What’s in my Travel Bag 2018

What’s in my Travel Bag 2018

by Brooke Saward @ WORLD OF WANDERLUST

This year I’m taking a new approach to travel: I’ve written a list of destinations I don’t believe I can live without visiting in my lifetime and I’m ticking them off one by one. This year my adventures kicked off in Alberta, Canada, a destination that has been on my travel list for as long as I can remember. Although this destination is more popular in the summertime, I was determined to make it a winter trip as the concept of snow is still quite foreign for this Tasmanian native! Another new approach I am taking this year is to spend a lot more of my time capturing video content to help inspire journies of your own. For the past five years I have really side-lined video content and focused more on imagery, but this year I want to make my Youtube Channel my main approach. Switching to more video content means investing in new gear and upgrading some of my old and faithful gear. After much deliberation and way too much time watching review videos on Youtube, I’ve found the below equipment to be the best for me to capture my solo adventures this year in both photos and […]

New Years Resolutions Worth Sticking To

New York for Pastry Lovers: The 10 Best Bakeries in NYC

by Brooke Saward @ WORLD OF WANDERLUST

On my recent fleeting visit to New York, I had just enough time to check out what was happening on the bakery scene in the city and sample my way around some old favourites. Below you will find my handpicked selection of the 10 best bakeries in NYC and what each of them specialises in to make over-the-counter ordering a breeze! Supermoon Bake House (The Cruffin) New on the scene and only open a few days before my arrival, the creator of the cruffin (an Aussie himself) has departed Mr Holmes Bakehouse (West Coast) and branched out on his own with Supermoon Bake House in the lower east side. Of course, the speciality is still the croissant-muffin hybrid “the cronut”, but you’ll have to arrive bang on opening time to get your hands on one. If you miss out, the croissants are really good in terms of technique and flavour, but be ready to flake the whole thing all over you. Bonus: the coffee is great thanks to some Aussie baristas. 120 Rivington Street, Lower East Side, New York Woops!

Over the last five years travelling the globe solo I have had many ups and downs, good experiences, terrible experiences, and most important of all, life lessons. However if I could have known then what I knew now, there are some cities I would have avoided and others I would have visited sooner. Below is a comprehensive list of the safest cities for female solo travelers, where I have felt most comfortable and enjoyed every minute of my time in. Sure, there are many more… but these cities are a safe bet! The Best Cities for Female Solo Travelers 1. Zurich, Switzerland Switzerland as a whole is one of the safest countries to travel to solo, but Zurich is the city that captured my heart most. Just big enough to remain interesting for a few days but with a small village feel, the city is full of winding alleyways and postcard-worthy views. For an authentic experience consider renting an apartment (with a balcony) for a few nights and spend your days meandering the cities’ many pockets. Read more: How to Spend 48 Hours in Zurich 2.

Like something out of a time-warped film set in Hollywood, this incredible island encapsulates everything Maltese living is about: sun, sea, and more sun!! Although I visited at the end of summer, the sun was scorching as the taxi driver translated the radio announcement to me: “the hottest day on record in a decade” he told me. Thank God, I thought to myself. So it isn’t just me… I’m not the only one melting into the abyss! We arrived at the bay area in Valletta and I almost threw myself into the shadiest seat on the boat, before the driver hit the engine and we made our way to Gozo. Arriving in Valletta The first thing to hit you in Valletta will be an overwhelming sense of wonder. Embrace it. The city is UNESCO World Heritage listed and presents one of the most awe-inspiring displays of architecture you will find anywhere in Europe. The church facades, statues and polished marble are just the beginning of this fabulous city that seems to reveal […]

A Journey Through Madagascar: Notes on the Privilege of Travel

by NomadicMatt @ Nomadic Matt's Travel Site

We travelers are a lucky bunch. It's easy to forget just how privileged we are to be able to travel the world. The truth is, most people rarely even leave their own country, let alone visit destinations all over the globe. My recent visit to Madagascar reminded me that it's important to keep this perspective in mind, and to give back to organizations that help the places we visit.

The Best Advice For Your First Time Traveling Solo

The Best Advice For Your First Time Traveling Solo

by Brooke Saward @ WORLD OF WANDERLUST

I’ve been on so many solo adventures now that I am often quick to forget how daunting my first time traveling solo was. On my first trip, I embarked on the 30+ hour journey to Europe and made my way to Paris, Prague, Budapest and London. Since then, I’ve never thought twice about packing my bags and heading off on a trip solo. But there are so many things I know now that I wish I knew back then, like what to do when you catch the right train but in the wrong direction, or how to convince yourself you’re more adventurous than you really are. Below are my top tips to help you build the courage we both know you have to take your first solo adventure! 1. When packing: less is more The best piece of advice I was given before I set off on my first adventure solo was to pack my bags, take it all and cut it in half, then put only half back. The old saying “you can only wear one pair of jeans at a time” is remarkably true, moreover, your favourite pair of jeans is always going to be your go to. Anything […]

The Best Books I Read in 2017

by Brooke Saward @ WORLD OF WANDERLUST

You know that break I’ve been taking? It’s finally over. This year I have done what I haven’t done in five years: I’ve spent more time at home than I have abroad. Crazy, I know. At the start of the year on a trip to Tahiti, I made a promise to myself that I would take some time off exploring the world to explore other interests. As such, I’ve had a lot of time to read and this has led me to find some really positive-perspective books that I want to recommend. MILK AND HONEY BY RUPI KAUR If you haven’t already read this book then put on some clothes, get in your car and go buy it now (or just click the link – whatever is easiest). This is hands down one of the most soul-revealing books I have read. It makes you realise you’re not the only one, that someone else has been through that too. It leaves you with answers to questions you thought would forever be unanswered. It’s the kind of book you want two copies of: one to devour and ripe out the pages to put in frames around your living room and the other […]

Can You Travel Hong Kong on a Backpacker Budget?

A Guide to Visiting Jasper National Park in Winter

A Guide to Visiting Jasper National Park in Winter

by Brooke Saward @ WORLD OF WANDERLUST

The winter wonderland that is Jasper National Park has long been on my (seemingly endless) bucket list of destinations, so I will struggle to find the words to describe the beauty I have so long wished to see first hand. After a casual -38 degrees (an all-time low for me) in Edmonton, I took the four-hour car journey onwards to Jasper, one of the most famous National Parks in Canada and these photos are about to show why! So if you find yourself visiting Jasper National Park in Winter, here’s a complete guide on how to make the most of your time here! Check-In: Jasper Park Lodge There are heaps of accommodation offerings in Jasper but before you get your heart set on a beautiful cabin in the woods, be warned that most of the accommodation is closed over the wintertime as this is surprisingly the low season for Alberta! I checked-in to the whimsical Jasper Park Lodge, a sort of “camp for adults” if you will, complete with cabin-style accommodations overlooking the lake. This is the kind of oasis you want to spend at least a few nights in, so be sure not to sell yourself short. The atmosphere […]

My first trip of 2018 has been on my travel bucket list for as long as I can remember: the Canadian Rockies!

But I soon realised this city is worth so much more than a stopover as it turned out to be a really fun few days! Below you will find my recommendations for the city of Edmonton, which is bursting with so many great restaurants, cafes and bars. Its the kind of city you can really kick back and enjoy yourself in, especially if you consider yourself a bit of a foodie like me. So, lets dive in!
