Here’s a sentence I never knew I would write almost four years ago when I purchased a domain and began writing a blog World of Wanderlust: I’m a published author!
It was back in December 2012 when I wrote my first blog post as World of Wanderlust and back then I never could have imagined the countries I would visit, cities I would live in and opportunities that would come my way from blogging.
After graduating university and managing my blog on the side, I decided to take a gap year and travel to 6 continents and as many countries as I could squeeze in to one year of solitude. I sold everything I owned and packed what I had left in to one suitcase, hopped on a flight to Heathrow and the rest was history.
The World of Wanderlust Book
A little over a year ago I opened the most exciting email of all: an expression of interest from Penguin Random House Australia to see if I had ever thought of publishing a book or if I would be interested in doing so (uh, YES!)
Over the next few months I began compiling all sorts of unseen photos, favourite blog photos, tips, tricks, and favourite stories from all over the world. I wanted this book to be a book you could pick up and jump in to the pages to escape (a little like my blog!)
The book is thus filled with inspirational photos, tips, tricks, stories and the most beautiful illustrations of my favourite cities you will EVER SEE (credit to Grace West).
Where to Buy my Book
Not to my surprise my lovely readers from around the globe are eager to learn where they can buy my book outside of Australia! Currently the book will be published in Australia and the Netherlands, with more news to follow if other countries pick up the book for publishing!
But the good news: you can now purchase my book with global shipping – wahhhoooooo! In Australia you will find the best price at Booktopia, but also find the book available at Angus & Robertson and Dymocks.
Worldwide you can purchase my book from Book Depository with free shipping worldwide!
Lastly (and most importantly) I would like to say a huge, gracious thank you to all my readers who have been with me along this journey the past few years. Here’s to many more years and many more adventures around the world – I hope to meet so many more of you on my travels!
