Who is behind Wonderful Wanderings?
Wonderful Wanderings was founded in 2012 by Sofie Couwenbergh. Dissatisfied with her job as marketing coordinator and copywriter, Sofie decided to combine her love for writing and passion for travel into a blog.
What was initially meant as a creative outlet soon drew the attention of readers from all over the world – and so the dream was born: to turn Wonderful Wanderings into a professional travel blog.
Since then, Sofie has been featured on sites like Business Insider, Thought Catalog, and The Washington Post. She has also contributed to national and international publications as well as big travel brand sites such as Expedia, and has shared her expertise at travel conferences such as Traverse and the Brussels Travel Top.
As the blog grew, Sofie brought on other travel writers to share their expertise and in August 2023, Harry Anapliotis took over the active management of Wonderful Wanderings and its channels as the CEO.
Close to 100,000 people read Wonderful Wanderings every month, and now you're one of them!
How we roll?
We don't care about checking off countries but prefer to visit places multiple times to gather in-depth information. We often return to the same country – and even the same city or region – multiple times to really get to know it and share you more than just the main sights to see.
You can find a list of the countries we've written about as well as some guest contributions about other countries on the destinations page.
And if you have any questions, don't hesitate to shoot us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Thanks for visiting the website. We look forward to helping you travel worry-free!
