This blog was created a little over a year ago as more of a “journal.” I began by writing about things that I was learning in my own life relating to faith, love, and happiness. I also documented my time abroad in South America and Europe for people to see, but also for me to look back on. Now, it has been transformed into more of a reader-oriented blog, a place where I can use my personal travel experiences to help readers create their own.
I’ll be writing about pretty much anything and everything related to these things. Whatever my mind wants to spit out I guess. Expect to walk with me as I process life and what’s next for me.
How did you choose the name “Mantras of a Wanderer”?
Honestly, I chose the name because the words looked and sounded pretty haha. I’m a writer, so I’m all about that written aesthetic. Beyond that, however, I chose “Mantras of a Wanderer” because I feel that all of my posts are written in the themes of love, adventure, and travel. In a way, these themes are my mantras, the words/themes that I meditate on as I navigate through life. As a lover of travel, it’s hard for me to feel tied down to one place or to go in one specific direction when my future is unclear. I simply wander and let life take me where it wants me to go, and for that reason, I am quite the wanderer.
What’s next, Mara?
Good question! I’ll be staying still for the next year or so until I graduate with my degree in Spanish and Psychology. From there, I have no idea. (Typical senior, right?) All I know is travel and Jesus will fit into the picture together somehow. I’ll also be moving somewhere, probably Uruguay, to be closer to my boyfriend who lives there.
And as for travel? What’s on your bucket list?
Ahhh this is such a difficult question to answer because my travel bucket list grows more and more every day. Right now, New Zealand and Brazil are at the top of my list!
Let’s be friends!
Seriously though. I love meeting and connecting with people! Nothing brings me more joy than exchanging travel stories or talking about future dreams and goals. If anything that I write resonates with you, please let me know. I’d love to have a conversation with you.
