The Gals Behind WhereGalsWander

What Is WhereGalsWander

. WhereGalsWander was started in response to the question “Is There More To Life?” #MoreToLife is our quest to connect with our surroundings. To inspire others to break out of their routine, to connect with others, with nature, and foster a spirit of adventure.

How WhereGalsWander Started

The Gals all lived on a small street in a suburban town outside of Chicago for almost 11 years, sipping wine on our back porch, watching the sunset and talking about all of the “what if’s” of life.  Life then unexpectedly separated us and took us away from the place we spent most of our lives.  We called it getting “unstuck”. We landed in new places and found ourselves taking advantage of everything new around us. By began exchanging photos and texts about our adventures, and soon WhereGalsWander was born to share our experiences more broadly. Once the wanderlust bit, we continued to pursue moments of connecting with new places, with the beauty of nature and with the challenge of going beyond our comfort zones.
