About Stephanie

Chinese Garden - Old Shanghai
This is how happy I get when I’m exploring a Chinese Garden in Old Shanghai, China.

Hello! It’s my pleasure to welcome you to my page: WanderlustJunkies.com. I am super glad you’re here!

My name is Stephanie and I am a Wanderlust Junkie.

If you are here, chances are that you are a one too!




I started exploring at a young age. I grew up on a tiny island in the Mediterranean by the name of Malta and I loved visiting its many beaches, cultural sites, hiking trails, historical buildings, you name it! With 7000 years worth of tangible history, I had so many options.

Years later I moved to Alberta, Canada – very different from the Mediterranean – but just as breathtaking! Living so close to the Rocky Mountains has been a treat! And a new country came with a plethora of new places to explore!

The travelbug hit me eventually, and that’s where I untapped my passion for exploring not just my surroundings but the whole world! In the space of two years I visited 6 new countries and counting – I would save and when I had enough in my travel fund, I would go somewhere new! This made me a bit of an expert at budgeting, finding excellent travel resources, deal hunting, creating travel itineraries to make the best of my time abroad, and now I’d love to give back and share all of it with you!

I’m here to tell you that no matter where you’re from, how much money you make, how much time you have… if you have a dream to explore the world, it is possible – there is always a way! I have managed to stretch my money with budgeting for my travel fund and during my travels, and I have also managed to cover a lot of ground in my adventures because a little planning can go a long way. Sometimes, you just have to take the first step – and I’m here to help you do just that!


At WanderlustJunkies.com you can expect to find Tips, Guides, and Resources on how to make the best of your travel – I will be sharing my travel experiences to (hopefully) inspire you to act on your feelings of wanderlust. The Earth is beautiful, it’s many cultures are amazing – so let’s get on with exploring!


Is there something travel related that I can assist you with or simply want to share the love? I would be THRILLED to hear from you, so don’t be a stranger – leave a comment!

Keep the Wanderlust going,
