Ever heard of Wanderlust Festival?
I have quite the case of wanderlust. Before I turned 21 (August 2012) I had ventured to 9 countries outside of the United States. I gallivant. You ask me to go, I go. I find a way to pay, I work around plans, and I go, usually with camera(s) in hand and some lenses and snacks in my backpack. I love it. I love exploring and being this anonymous person in a culture completely different from my own.
That said, two things seem to always go with me each time I travel: my cameras and yoga. When I first heard the term wanderlust, I didn’t know how prevalent it would be in my life. I’ve always loved hiking, wandering into the wilderness and going on long drives with nothing particular in mind other than to find beautiful scenery. I travel, everywhere. In my spare time I look up places I’d like to visit someday and read about festivals and travelers who blog about their experience.
So imagine my delight when I found this: Wanderlust Festival
On the site, Wanderlust Festival is defined as a one-of-a-kind festival bringing together the world’s leading yoga teachers, top musical acts and DJs, renowned speakers, top chefs and winemakers, and much, much more — all in a setting of breathtaking natural beauty. We’re talking about fun in the sun and dancing under the stars. Hiking on peaceful trails and gettin’ your down dog on at the top of the mountain. Sipping poolside cocktails with your friends, and then enjoying a tasty farm-to-table dinner with views of the surrounding mountain peaks. Early morning meditations and all-night chakra spinning musical performances – it’s an all-out ecstatic celebration in the most awe-inspiring locations in the world.
Sounds amazing, right? This year, Wanderlust is coming to Chile, Hawaii, Colorado, Vermont, Canada and California. You’re probably thinking boy, that sounds expensive, but rest assured! I think you’ll find that it’s reasonable, and for what you can experience, I think it’d be worth it.
So, who’s ready to plan an adventure with me?
