Wandering Waris: New destinations

Passengers board the plane back to Dallas.

I started this blog, Wandering Waris, during my second year on staff to share the more vivid events from my travels. Though I took a break from it for a while, I am bringing it back as a nice way to end my last few weeks on staff.

What I’ve realized over the years is that I seem to recall the more mundane events – like a wrong turn while looking for a grocery store – more than a 24/7 photographed landmark.

This time around, I intend to do more than share my memories through writing: with a heavier focus on visuals. With my most recent trips, I’ve made it a habit to take as many pictures and videos as possible so that when I come back I can put them all together into a video to share the special moments I can’t describe with words.

Though I’ll be trying to bring in different content than before, my intentions for this blog will continue to revolve around highlighting the value behind being spontaneous with your travels and trying to seek something beyond a checkmark off a bucket list. With every trip, my carefree mindset has only intensified and I hope to capture these moments through my blogs.
