Five Favorite Posts of 2017
Last year our Wanderlust blog presented tales and reflections celebrating the wide wonders of the world, from Alaska to West Africa, written by a spectrum of authors, including award-winning novelists, journalists, and essayists as well as GeoEx’s own world-wandering staffers. As always, our goal was to inform, entertain, and inspire you; we hope our stories whetted your own wanderlust.
As we begin a new year of adventure and discovery, we wanted to highlight five of our favorite staff-written blog posts from 2017!
We present them here, along with our warmest wishes for a new year full of exploration, growth, connection, and fulfillment.

Wanderlust’s Editor in Chief writes, “Today, when the world is wracked with division and the specter of indiscriminate destruction haunts every passageway, it may be tempting to stay home. But this is precisely when we most need to travel, to weave the global threads of connection that bind us.”
