It’s been showcased in many forms – printed on pillows, made into wall murals and in 2016 is a very trendy word –

Wan·der·lust (Websters Dictionary)
a strong desire to travel.
“a man consumed by wanderlust”

I’d love to see your Wanderlust items and I hope this proves to be a very adventurous thread! Thank you in advance for your thoughts and listings.

My wanderlust desire for today is to feel the breeze from the mountain tops. Relaxing with a nice dinner for two.

I dream of going to Napa Valley. To visit the beautiful wineries and learn about the soil, grapes,history and traditions of this beautiful place. And, of course to drink wine. Mondavi, Murphy Goode, 14 Hands, J. Lohr, are just a few on my list to visit.

Gosh, just one submission – no fair!

Wanderlust is what SLS is all about! My daughters and I love to wander and our shop shows it. Our studies and jobs have taken us all over Europe, parts of Asia and the United States. This ‘wanderlust’ printable aptly reflects our love for travel and hiking. I remember the day we hiked through this lush forest in the Belgian Ardennes. I felt like I was engulfed in ferns and could get lost in them forever. Our photography shop, Stock Lane Photography, offers lots of fine art travel photography as well.

Capture your wanderlust!

I have incurable wanderlust – ha,ha – I just need the budget to go with it!

This necklace is actually the result of my husband and I fulfilling a wanderlust dream and going to Paris! It was fantastic of course. The only ‘souvenir’ I brought back home was beads from a bead store in Paris.

My wanderlust desire and dream today is to sail the seven seas –
But I will settle for a cool meadow by a bubbly brook
Amidst the falling autumn leaves!
