About The Creator

Hi, I am Sarah the creator behind Balancing Wanderlust.

I have a passion for travel, outdoor adventure activities, and writing lifestyle content. I have created Balancing Wanderlust to help others live a more inquisitive and adventurous lifestyle 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 outdoor adventures a priority. I have hiked up countless mountains, paddled around British Columbia, read life-changing books, and toured several more countries; all while maintaining a fulfilling nine to five career.
