Mareike | Missus Wanderlust

Travel Photography & Blog driven by Wanderlust

Warm welcome!

As you seem to be curious and hopefully are enjoying my content here you have a short introduction.

I am a young woman in her early thirties, raised in Berlin, Germany and on Lanzarote, Spain. I have a passion for travel and so far mostly traveled solo. As you will quickly notice the combination of photography and traveling is tightly connected for me. In this blog I share my journeys to give insides about my recommendations and experiences in different cities and countries.

I just marked the 32rd counties visited with my arrival in Canada, where I do live right now on a working holiday visa. Here are the countries I have been to so far:

This map is a screenshots of my FindPenguins account, where I track the countries visitied.
Some further random facts about me:
  • I do smile and laugh a lot.
  • Talking is one of my favorite hobbies if you can call it so. Getting to know people, discuss, interact, exchange… I love it!
  • I am fluent in German, Spanish and English.
  • Cooking and eating is another passion for me
  • TED talks or other interesting, mostly self development talks or podcast are my go to start in the day while enjoying my breakfast.

In my first post you can find some more details about me. Still not enough? Feel free to follow and ask! I am looking forward in seeing you back and love to virtually take you with me on my journeys.

Love, Mareike

Quick excursion to my name:

My name is Mareike and since that is quite hard to pronounce for anyone not speaking German nor Dutch people got creative by naming me Mia, Miya, Myra, Mary, May or Maria just to name a few nicknames. I react to all of them. Only one friend of mine does call me Missus so far (he’ll know I mean him) and I loved the sound of it. I never heard it before and figured that it is another form of misses, madam, wife or similar. Being single at that time I thought about what I feel connected to if not to a significant other. Since one of my deepest passions is traveling and I was looking for a name related to that topic I thought about myself as being married to wanderlust, which lead to “Missus Wanderlust“.

If you enjoy my posts I would be happy if you like and or leave me a feedback. I am thankful for every advice and happy to answer questions. Just leave me a comment and I will come back to you. Feel free to follow this blog for more content, my Instagram for photograhy and stories or FindPenguins where I track my journey to get a general overview. I am happy to see you back soon.
