Hello! I’m Melanie.
I was looking around at other blogs and websites to figure out how to start writing my about page the first thing everyone was saying was to do was to pretty much tell you what I’ll be posting and how my blog will benefit you.

Well, I’m not exactly sure what I will be posting. I’m not blogging for the followers or for money. Just for myself. I intend for this to be a place where I can have a place to jot down my thoughts on the little, or big things in life…

Why did I choose The Captivated Wanderer?

To be captivated is to be filled with wonder and delight in what seems to me like a timeless moment. When I think of a wanderer I don’t think of it as someone who is always mindlessly lost. I like to think of a wanderer as someone who wanders away from the everyday stress and confusion of life to enjoy the little bits and taken for granted things in life.

I also like to think of a wanderer as a destinationless traveler who doesn’t travel for the sightseeing but for meeting new people, hearing their life stories, and seeing how they live everyday which is a big dream of mine.

You don’t always need a plan.
Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go, and see what happens.
