Discover the joy of wandering near & far
Back in 2011, my brother and I did a 10-day trip around Iceland’s ring road. Captivated by Iceland’s otherworldly beauty, I returned on a solo trip a year later.
I kept notes on everything I saw and loved. These became the Iceland Notes which circulated to family, friends and beyond. People still message me saying, “I used your notes and had the best time.”
Since then, wherever I go, I keep travel notes and take lots of pictures. Wandering Sophia is where I share all of my best travel discoveries.
Meet WANDERING Sophia
BLOGGER + wanderer + photographer
I’m a Canadian with a lifelong passion for travel. I love discovering new places, trying local foods, and I always make time for some shopping.
I love to wander and maybe even get a little lost. Believe that pre-trip planning is all part of the fun, along with a bit of luck to help me find hidden gems, all the while capturing photo memories.
Wandering Sophia is where I share all of my best travel discoveries.
a few of my favourite things
PLACES I’ve visited again & AGAIN
Istanbul, Rome, Iceland
Sunset or sunrise?
I love both, but my best pictures are taken in the morning, without other tourists, when it feels like I have the city all to myself.
Is there anything you do in every city you visit?
Join a walking tour and find a cute little cafe where I can people-watch.
Negroni or anything sparkling, Cava, Prosecco, Champagne…
