 "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing." 
– Helen Keller

Welcome to Wanderlust! 

Hey loves, we're Jess and Britt and we're so excited you're here!

 

We believe that everyone, regardless of their budget, relationship status, or level of adventure should have the opportunity to experience the magic of travel. That's why we decided to create Wanderlust, Co. - a platform + community where we can help fellow women create unforgettable trips while feeling safe and secure throughout their journey.

As we shared our travel stories, we noticed that many incredible women out there yearned for adventures of their own, but something held them back – whether it was a tight budget, being by themselves, a fear of the unknown, or simply not knowing where to begin.

So we decided to create a space where women could start living their lives boldly  through travel. And feel supported and safe every step of the way. 

Our own experiences have taught us that traveling is not just about ticking off places on a map; it's about discovering who we really are, and connecting with people from different walks of life; and we want that for you, too. It's about experiencing life at a whole new level while getting out of your comfort zone. If you know..you know.

Whether you're a solo traveler (expert or first timer) or if you're ready for a group adventure, we've got you covered. 

Safety and security are super important to us (like it's our #1 priority), and we understand the concerns that can sometimes accompany travel, especially for solo female explorers. 

Pack your bag babe, and let's go. We've got places to see!

If someone would have told me even a few years ago I would be creating a travel brand where I travel the world and help other women do the same, I would have blocked you. Haha! Never in a million years would I have guessed this was my path.

Why? Because for so long I had convinced myself that traveling the world, especially solo, was just not in the cards for me. I had built up so much travel anxiety through the years about being on planes for long periods of time, I was single and had no one to go with (or so I thought), I didn't make enough money, and ultimately I had convinced myself I was too afraid. 

Until I suddenly lost a beautiful friend. Her death taught me how to live. To not wait until the money is there, or the person is next to you, or when the fear goes away. It turns out the fear dissolves when you decide to not let it dictate your story any more. 

I took my first trip abroad, my first solo trip, my first plane ride across the ocean by myself to Scotland for an entire month in 2023 and it changed my life and who I am, forever. Sounds dramatic, but it's true. And now I'm even more convinced this is what I'm meant to do: support other women who are ready to experience life in the most expansive and beautiful of ways through travel.

I can't wait to connect with you and help you figure out where your heart and soul is leading you. Cheers, loves!

Meet Britt

What can I say? I won’t say no to an adventure! When I hear, “Brittany, do you want to drive to 17 hours to Colorado on Monday?” the answer is always, “Yes, of course I do.” 

 

I’ve always had an explorative side.  I’m an only child, so I’m fiercely independent, create my own fun, and am perfectly content to go somewhere alone. I took my very first international trip when I was 19. I had never been outside of the US up until that point. 

 

Like many stories, mine begins with “So there was this boy.” I met a foreign exchange student from Finland; knowing I have Finnish heritage, my curiosity was piqued. He asked if I wanted to come visit him in his home country, and I jumped at the chance. I saved money, bought a plane ticket, and off I went to Finland, where I stayed for a month.

 

I made beautiful memories, learned a ton about the preparations, logistics, and the FUN of stepping out to see the world, and realized I’d caught that travel bug. Fast forward to today, and I’ve been to over 10 countries, 29 states, and counting. I’ve learned how to navigate subways and other public transport…and I’ve even checked driving on the other side of the road off my list. #nailedit

 

Am I afraid to navigate a new place? No. Am I afraid to miss out on incredible experiences? Yes! Travel FOMO is real. Let’s go see the world!

Britt
