Practical Wanderlust is a travel blog written by Lia & Jeremy, aka Liaremy. We got married in May of 2016, and then we quit our jobs, sold our stuff, and left for a year-long honeymoon. Read more about us here!
So now you know a little bit about us. What about our travel philosophy? What kind of foolish job-quitting part-time nomads are we, anyway?!
Our Travel Philosophy
“Practical Wanderlust,” the term, can be broken into two parts.
- prac·ti·cal (adjective): sensible and realistic in the approach to a situation or problem.
- wan·der·lust (noun): a strong desire to travel.
“Practical Wanderlust” describes me perfectly: I want to travel, all the time. But I know that I CAN’T travel all the time, because life isn’t a magical fantasy word filled with rainbows and money and privilege where I can just do whatever I want and ~travel~ and post fabulous pictures on instagram instead of have a steady job and a retirement plan. I know people out there do, in fact, post fabulous pictures on instagram and travel as their job, but I have no idea how they do that and frankly I’m nowhere near attractive enough to garner that many followers (by the way, please follow me on Instagram. It makes me feel good when people “like” my photos.)
But you took a year-long honeymoon, that doesn’t seem practical.
