This is usually the time of the week when I go on a Wander. However, this week I’ve not had the chance to do my usual hunt for photos and research, despite (or perhaps because of) being out for a wander yesterday.
My Wednesday Wander posts take a bit of work. I enjoy doing them, and haven’t yet run out of places to feature. However, I’ve had a couple of books take me by the throat and demand I write them, so this year my focus will have to shift slightly when it comes to writing.
I do have more travel booked, a holiday planned for April to somewhere I’ve not been before, so I will definitely be writing more Wanders. However, they may not be every week – I hope you don’t mind.
I thought I’d take a look back and see how many Wanders I’ve written since the first post in November 2015, and was surprised to see there are 92! So, if you’re feeling that you might need a bit of a travel fix, there are 92 destinations right here on this blog, from Paris to Morocco, California to Wales. I even went to Dragonstone last year (though the Targaryens weren’t in, sadly). Just search Wednesday Wander, and you’ll see them all.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering (wandering?), my most popular post, based upon the amount of comments and likes, was to a place not far from where I live. Highgate Cemetery, London, is the most popular Wander I’ve written to date – hop on over and check it out, if you haven’t already.
Thanks for coming on so many Wednesday Wanders with me – see you next time!

Love your wanders. Post them when you can, but don’t let it control your time either.
Thanks, Craig 🙂 That’s a really nice thing to say, and I’m glad you enjoy them. I enjoy doing them, but lately they were feeling like a bit of a chore. I’m still adjusting to my new schedule – once I get sorted out I’m sure I’ll be back to wandering again 🙂
Looking forward to it.
This is so incredible and beautiful – great imagination!!!
Thank you 🙂
You’ve booked somewhere you have never been? I have been following your Wednesday Wander posts for a while now, and from seeing them, I have to wonder just where it is on Earth you haven’t been yet. Hahaha. Are you going to Antarctica perhaps? 😛
😀 Oh, there are loads of places I haven’t been! Including New York, which is where I’m heading in April, as well as a short jaunt to Canada and New England. So I’m really looking forward to seeing and experiencing the Big Apple 🙂 As for Antarctica… well, it’s on the list!
I would love to go to Antarctica!! But here’s a tip about New York if you are looking to photograph, wander about, and visit museums: the Guggenheim is closed on Thursdays. Always. I discovered this the hard way after walking all the way across Central Park to see it. Lol.
Ooh thank you! Travel tips are always appreciated, and I’ll remember that 🙂 I must say I’m looking forward to walking across Central Park too!
I live through your Wednesday wanders… You’ve experienced so many wonderful places!
Aw, thanks, Suzie 🙂 I’ve been very lucky and, hopefully, I’ll get to visit a few more
Reblogged this on Suzie Speaks and commented:
I love Helen’s Wednesday Wander series! Please don’t like or comment on my reblog – hop on over and see where she has visited!
Thanks for sharing, Suzie 🙂
I’ve just come across your Wednesday Wanders through Suzie’s blog. And then this post sent me to your Highgate post. All quite interesting. I’ll be poking around in here.
Hi Jennifer – thanks for coming over to have a look 🙂 There are over 90 Wanders to look through, so I hope you enjoy them!
Wowsers, Helen! Your Wednesday Wanders are sublime!! Cher xo
Thanks so much, Cher! Hope you’re well xx
Helen, I got quite excited seeing our Sydney Opera House on your wanders today. I was looking at a series of photos I took of my Mum with my kids back in 2011 last night and they just so special. Decided to turn them into a movie. I never take the architecture of our beautiful harbour for granted, but through blogging and connecting with people overseas, it’s gained great resonance and I really saw something magical in watching my kids mucking around with the Opera House in the background.
Aw, that’s beautiful, Rowena. Those photographs do sound very special, not just because of the architecture. When I lived in Sydney I lived on the North shore and would take the bus to work every day over the Harbour Bridge, and I often thought how lucky I was, to see one of the world’s great views every morning. I still remember the first time I saw it, and how it felt. It is a very special place indeed 🙂
I’m from the North Shore up around Pymble. I love Kirribilli and for many years, went to the dentist there and would catch a ferry into the city as a bit of a detour. Great fun!
I love Kirribilli too – I used to live not too far from there, Neutral Bay/Cremorne area. And taking the ferries is just another wonderful part of living in the city, isn’t it? Just a fantastic place to live 🙂
It is beautiful down there and I spent time around there when I was young going to The Oaks, Maisies etc. It was a life time ago now…
I lived on the same street at The Oaks! Used to spend a bit of time there in the beer garden 😊
I used to go to The Oaks on Thursday nights after I left school. I seem to remember being on the look out for someone there but I can’t remember who it was anymore. My friends and I used to prowl around a fair bit to see who was there. Quite a social scene.
Definitely a bit of a scene 🙂
