Dani and Pumpkins at North Star Orchards
Wanderlust on a Budget

Welcome to Wanderlust on a Budget! My name is Dani and I live in Syracuse, New York. Since I was a child, I’ve always dreamed about seeing the world and experiencing everything I can – trying new food, learning about new cultures, and all that good stuff. I’ve been lucky to have gotten to do so many amazing things so far, and I want to share my stories with you. Traveling the world doesn’t have to be expensive. Let me show you how.

On the blog I focus on some of my favorite things:

My hometown of Syracuse, New York

Upstate New York

Budget Travel Advice

Breweries & Wineries

Haunted & Spooky Locations
