  1. Daniela hi. My name is Declan. I saw that the subheading of your site is ‘My Life of Wanderlust’ Besides the Celtic Cross (which by the way is not exactly mine, mine is in old Irish while Eire is more American way to write it). on my other inner right arm is ‘Wanderlust’ Wanderlust has always een a driving force and I guess it is for you too. Good luck. Keep up with the posts. You are an inspiration. What’s next? When I was about your age I hitchhiked across Canada from Peggy’s Cove Nova Scotia to Ft St James British Columbia where I lived for abou5 5 months with the Carriers, an Indigenous Tribe.. Well sorry, this is your story and so far a great one. Joseph Campbell, Follow your Bliss, Great quote. You can see a really good interview with Bill Moyers where he says that on YouTube.
    Thank you


    • Hi Declan, thanks for your comment and your support 🙂 I actually plan on getting a tattoo that says Wanderlust on my wrist during my next adventure in Thailand. We will be tattoo twins. I will have to check the interview on youtube one of these days.
