I started my travel journey almost three years ago when I realized what I wanted to do with my life. I knew I wanted to travel after I graduated no matter what. Whether I become a flight attendant or something freelance, I knew that getting out of the US of A and immersing myself in different cultures was going to be a part of my destiny. When I was fiddling around on the computer I stumbled upon an ad for teaching English abroad. I vividly remembered my 10th grade world history teacher telling us about his time teaching English in Mongolia and how much it changed his life. I remember being completely enthralled with the stories of his experiences but after years of forgetting I was re-intrigued after seeing the ad. I did my research and became more excited as I realized that I had finally found my path. As a senior, you can only imagine my excitement of knowing that this time next year I will be living in a new country.


After realizing my dream three years ago, I decided why wait until after graduation to start traveling when I could dip into it and start preparing now. With that thought, I started a YouTube channel called The Wanderlust Archives where I do travel vlogs and lifestyle videos. Since creating my channel, I have been to Spain, New Orleans, Orlando, and numerous places in Texas. I started this blog to accommodate my channel and I’m hoping I will be more motivated to travel around Texas and other states before I’m off on my big adventure next year.


In my future posts you can expect travel tips, travel blogs/vlogs, and everything travel related in between. I take great pride in being honest and open with my viewers so expect nothing but “realness” from me. I hope you will join me on this adventure and don’t forget to subscribe to my channel.

Happy Traveling,

Ariel ✈️💕
