After a little hiatus, a little website re-vamp and a little vacation, The Wanderlist is back in business. It has been a while since we’ve blogged, but with our fresh new look and all you wonderful social media Wanderlisters following us, we’re back and more ready than ever to continue travelling and crossing things off our [wander]List! Here’s a little peak at what we’ve been up to since our last post back in [ugh, sorry guys]…August. Well for starters, C had to recover from her two-week long summer vacation. Not that she’s complaining or anything, but after being gone for so long and going back to “real” work, it was a lot of playing catch-up. The Fall also kicks of her busy season, so that’s partially to blame for our mysterious disappearance these last several months. Stupid real-world work that’s only usefulness is to pay bills…so overrated. So here we go…a month-by-month recap of where we’ve been wandering…   August: -N conquers the Billy Goat Trail in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area’s Great Falls Park. -C is Southport, North Carolina visiting with family then road trips up to Duck, North Carolina for some fun beach bummin’ with friends. -N heads to Vegas and makes it out alive…barely. September: -N attends a wedding in beautiful Charlottesville, Virginia wine country. -C attends the US Open in Queens, New York and roots on Roger Federer and Caroline Wozniacki. -C makes a hometown visit down to Washington, D.C. for a lovely and long Labor… View Post

It might be too late for Thirsty Thursday, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late for Friday happy hour to kick off the weekend. For our New Yorkers and Washingtonians we’ve compiled a list of some killer spots to grab a drink and give yourself some relief from the stress of the work week. New York City ​​SMLXL Frying Pan With this beautiful weather, this place is perfect! Located on a historic floating lighthouse, this place is awesome. From music, to beer buckets, to yummy snacks and bar food, you will not be disappointed. In fact, you’ll probably be so excited, a couple drinks will turn into all night…trust me, it’s happened. Small tip! Get there as early as possible cause the line likes to wrap around the block! Pod 39 Keeping the good weather theme going, this awesome rooftop bar is a hidden gem of the Murray Hill neighborhood in Midtown. Located on the roof of the Pod 39 Hotel, its got really rustic and relaxing vibes and a fun crowd. There’s gorgeous views of the city and, even though they don’t serve food at the bar on the rooftop, there’s a great Mexican restaurant, Salvation Taco, that is located on the lobby level. The Cellar taking it inside, and actual underground, this bar in the Flatiron district is great. With tasty, crafted cocktails and a great wine list, it’s a great place for those who just want to kick back and relax. They’ve got couch like seating for those just looking to grab a… View Post

It may be National Museum Day, but since we’re wanderers of the world, we decided to compile a list of our favorite museums across the globe, some we’ve been to and some we are dying to visit! Newseum (Washington D.C., United States of America) -Gotta start with repping our hometown. Possibly my most favorite museum I’ve ever been to, history, journalism and media buffs assemble! This ENORMOUS, multi-floor, amazing museum is so rich in history that you are allowed to purchase a 24 hour pass because you clearly won’t be able to see it all in one visit. Want to know what it would be like to be Diane Sawyer? They have a mock reporting area that’s fun for all ages! ​​SMLXL Photo by David Monack Anne Frank House (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) -Most of the time, museums showcase the best parts of history, but sometimes they showcase the worst. Take a moment to learn more about the Holocaust, at this must-see stop in Amsterdam. One of the most well-known stories of that era is of a young girl, Anne Frank, and her family, who went into hiding during the Nazi Regime in Europe. Tour the house the Franks and a few others hid in for more than two years and get a feel for what it was like for many Jews during WWII. ​​SMLXL Photo by Massimo Catarinella The Tenement Museum (New York City, NY, United States of America) -A highly underrated and amazing museum sits in Manhattan’s Lower East Side Neighborhood.

I’d always wanted to move to Manhattan, even when I was young. The bright lights, the busy-ness, the tough-as-nails locals, the culture, the never-ending excitement. It all just seemed so appealing to me. To top all that, my dream to work in the media production industry and NYC being the capital of that in the US, it just seemed like the right place to be. After college, I hung around my hometown for a while, but I realized I needed to make my dream a reality. So I packed my bags and officially made the move last July. I knew it’d be a learning experience, officially going off on my own, but I never knew just what it would be like. I’ve compiled a list of all the things I’ve learned in my first year of living in the Big Apple, so learn something and feel free to have a few laughs at my expense. These are in no particular order of importance by the way… 1. You can definitely get more than 400 square feet for $1500. I anticipated apartments being crazy expensive, and my roommate and I, also a NYC transplant, decided that we probably wouldn’t find anything better for our price range and went for the easiest choice. We lucked out in the area, Murray Hill, but living in a literal box with another person can start to give you cabin fever. That, and not being able to walk around your bed. 2. Don’t keep your subway card… View Post
