Welcome! Willkommen! Bienvenido! Shalom! Aloha! Benvenuto! Bienvenue! Salaam! 歡迎 !

I started Not All Who Wander Are Lost mostly due to the realization that the blogger community is incredibly uplifting!  By reading the blog of my best friend over at Indulge Inspire Imbibe, I see blogs as an amazing creative outlet as well as a fantastic opportunity to meet new people! While the aforementioned blogs focus largely on food & drink, I plan to focus my posts on sharing my overall experiences as I travel throughout North America, Europe and, hopefully, more of Asia and the rest of the world!

It's funny, any one of us can let the daily grind get us down.  We may curse at things that are ultimately trivial and, on any given day, even be convinced that the world is out to get us.  I am no exception to these feelings!  However, I continually try to remind myself that I am very fortunate.  I have amazing friends and a job and resources that let me experience places outside of my "bubble". While I love my bubble dearly, I hope you'll join me as I set-off to various destinations.  I'll share links to hotels, events, shows and anything else I experience while away from home.  Also, I plan to share little travel tips, such as where/when to find the best deals and which airlines and hotels have the best reward programs. Oh, and of course, I'll be sure to do my food blogging friends well by sharing all of the great restaurants and bars I discover along my way!
