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 – Travel Writing and Photography is a selection of personal travel writing experiences and opinions (which are almost entirely my own). Each of which have been carefully and lovingly brought to life by yours truly.
I also incorporate various photos from my travels, using them in the different reviews and photo essays that I compile. These posts generally revolve around local places, restaurants and experiences in my country, South Africa. But, as it is my home city, there is 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, I wish to help my readers discover new and wonderful adventures and travel tales.
Along the way, I invite local and international travellers and bloggers to share their thoughts and provide inspired travel tips!
I hope you will enjoy being a part of my journey… Thank you for stopping by!
