Come Wander
I'm a Rustic Roamer

I’m a Rustic Roamer. I wander to discover authentic moments, to embrace the spirit of locals, and to understand the stories of the communities and countryside that I visit. My vision of the perfect trip includes hopping from small town to small town, through the countryside, coming across unique shops and quaint restaurants I never knew existed. I want to taste the local food, find the best micro-brew, or bring home the most treasured knick knack I found at a funky shop. I keep with me the stories of the people I met and treasure those in my memory bank.
