What we're about

The very definition of WANDERLUST: a German word for the irresistibly strong desire to travel or wander.

Maybe this illicits a similar response in you as it does me;)

Are you restless, a curiosity seeker, maybe you have an artistic bent, crave adventure, off-the-beaten path, eclectic and varied cultural experiences? Would you like to travel somewhere you've never been and meet people who share a similar passion...and do it all while being responsible and eco friendly? Do you like to be a participant instead of a spectator? Are you interested in Art workshops? Herbal workshops? Cooking classes? Getting out and hiking/biking/walking in nature to take it all in?

I started this group because I'm interested in connecting and traveling with others of like-mind, varying ages, backgrounds and experiences. People who want to see the world and care about the environment. People who don't want to exploit the native populations and agree they should be paid fair wages for their services.

There will be many opportunities to explore locally, but we will be organizing at least one big international trip a year and one domestic trip as I think it's just as important to explore our own country as it is to tour others.

I also welcome suggestions, ideas, and the natural evolution of co-leaders to help take the reins moving forward.

Happy travels!

Please be respectful of other members. Unkindness & negativity serves no one and will not be tolerated. All are welcome here, POC, LGBTQI, this is a safe place for all to travel and share and explore the wonders this world has to offer.

Odyssey World Cafe

Odyssey World Cafe

This month we're back in North County. The Odyssey World Cafe is where dream destinations come true! They consistently have great food for reasonable prices. It's also a great place to discuss where you're going next and get that trip booked! Let's come together over some delicious food and talk everything travel, best travel sites, travel insurance and how to find those low cost plane tickets on the fly.

TASTE

TASTE! craft eatery

So this has been in my Queue for a long time. Taste is a great place to share "tapas" or smaller bites to try a variety of things. Many times when I travel with friends, this is how we like to eat so we can try several of the local dishes at one time. Let's get together and "taste" what this place has to offer as Summer is coming to an end and it's time to think about fall colors and where you're going to appreciate the cooler temps and stunning fall foliage. Apparently, this place is also award winning, This is from their website: "Thank you to all our customers for continuing to vote us one of the BEST restaurants in SLO County! * 2016, 17 & 18 NEW TIMES READERS POLL"Best Caterer" * 2016 & 17 "BEST RESTAURANT to treat yourself" * San Luis Obispo Tribune BEST OF THE BEST BURGERS * 2015, 16, 17 & 18 #1 rated restaurant on YELP * TripAdvisor Annual Excellence Award * 2014 NEW TIMES READERS POLL"BEST NEW RESTAURANT" Hope to see you all there!!

Meet and Eat Paso Robles

Paso Robles Downtown Main Street Association

So this is another walking tour that includes lots of good food, wine and walking, along with some of the history of this stunning little town that has become a mecca for artists and wineries. This is our North County 'walking tour" and it's sure to be deliciously rewarding. Again, you will need to pre-purchase your own ticket. Please go here and buy one for October 5th: http://www.centralcoastfoodtours.com/paso-robles-tour Tickets are a bit more expensive than the SLO tour. This one will set you back $94. Also, welcome to Paso where that's a "great" deal :P But it will be so worth it what with all the food, wine, history and great company, right? If you're needing a rest after all of that, we can pop into the little theatre in town and catch a nice flick so we can sit in one place for a couple of hours. Hope to see you all there, I'm excited for this one.

Italy at Giuseppe's

Giuseppe's Cucina Rustica

I'm so fortunate, this summer I will be spending 3 weeks in Italy and will be there for Summer Solstice, attending a festival that has been happening for "centuries". I can hardly contain myself, I'm so excited!! Let's get together for some delicious Italian food and I can share what I have learned about traveling in Italy along with any tips to plan your own trip. Maybe I'll even be able to order in Italian as I am doing some language immersion. Show up to find out how good my Italian is at this point. :)
