Hello, my name is Erin Scherer. I founded the Wonderlost Travel blog in February of 2015 after my experience of studying abroad in Europe. I have had the opportunity to travel throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and parts of South America and Asia. I enjoy writing about and photographing travel experiences in order to inspire others to get out and follow their travel dreams. I have collaborated with tourism departments, restaurants, and other travel bloggers to share reviews and travel advice with my readers in over 100 countries. I have a passion for traveling the world to experience other cultures and explore nature!

I also work as the Social Media and Outreach Coordinator for a non-profit organization called ARIN. I manage their social media channels in addition to writing content for their blog.

I am a graduate of James Madison University with a Bachelor of Arts in Media Arts & Design (Corporate Communications) and a minor in Writing & Rhetoric. I was born in Miami and reside in Northern Virginia.
