About the Creator

Hi, I am Sarah the creator behind Balancing Wanderlust.

I have a passion for travel, outdoor adventures, and baking. I have created Balancing Wanderlust to help others live a more inquisitive and adventurous lifestyle all while maintaining a full-time career.

Growing up in British Columbia, Canada I have always loved the outdoors. As a teenager, I began participating in adventures sports and fell in love with hiking, biking, and kayaking. However, it was a winter trip to Iceland in 2012 that really ignited my adventurous spirit. On this trip, I snorkeled, ate amazing food, and fell in love with Icelandic culture. This trip left me wanting more. More adventure, more incredible experiences, and more travel.

Since this trip, I have made travel and adventure a priority. I have hiked up countless mountains, paddled around British Columbia, and toured several more countries.

When I am at home I love to spend time in my kitchen whipping up beautiful cakes and pies. I also love taking my two dogs out for long walks and reading anything I can get my hands on.
