wayfaring definition

As a destination for people who constantly pursue new destinations, Wayfaring Rachel features travel, fashion, health, and everything else you need to make your best  adventures happen.

After graduating with my B.S. in Biology, I decided to ditch the laboratory scene to pursue what makes me truly, deliriously happy.  I’ve always been a nomad, but a two month backpacking trip around Europe after graduation was the catalyst for my travel addiction. In a sea of points systems, hotel ratings, and guidebooks, what I really wanted was a peer to give me their honest opinion and pass along some  personally tested tips – so I decided to become that person. Experiencing new places and different cultures is something I believe everyone should do, and I want to make it easier for you.

What would you do with your life if anything were possible? Why aren’t you doing that now?  Love your life and it will love you back (pinky promise).

I’m currently calling Chicago home base, after my 31st (!) move. I love exploring this city as much as any other. You can reach me at rachel@wayfaringrachel.com with comments, questions, or just to say hi!
