About Tamlyn Amber Wanderlust

How It All Began

What originally started as a university assignment during my Journalism studies soon became a way for me to fulfill my own personal aspiration of becoming a travel writer… Today, my travel blog: Tamlyn Amber Wanderlust is a selection of personal travel writing experiences and opinions (which are almost entirely my own) that have been carefully and lovingly brought together by yours truly.

In my blog, I also incorporate various photos from my travels, using them in the different reviews and photo essays I compile on local places, festivals, restaurants/cafes and markets in my country, South Africa – with a particular focus on Cape Town.

My goal is simple: to do what I love (travel writing and adventuring), whenever I can – and in so doing, help my readers to discover new and wonderful places, adventures and travel tales.

I hope you will enjoy being a part of my journey.
