Lauren Breedlove

I'm the owner/author of the travel blog girlwanderlist, where I keep it real on the regular. I also work as a freelance travel writer and photographer, contributing to spoiled NYC, Thrillist, TravelPulse, POPSUGAR, Elite Daily, Matador Network, TouringBird, Seeker, and Dame Traveler.

I aim to experience, photograph and write with a raw & real adventurous spirit. I'm fueled by off the beaten path destinations, absorbing local culture, capturing the true essence of a place, and, grilled cheese. Finding a fresh perspective to creatively share with readers is a challenge I wholeheartedly enjoy. I bask in hiking, exploring, local beer + food, sunrises, unique stays, and the magic that happens with the spontaneity that travel, in general, gifts. Oh, and wildlife...I love wildlife.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Outdoor, Adventure (the more random the better), off the beaten path destinations, food and beverage, unique lodging"

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Fishing with my hands in Greenland!"
