About

Hi, I'm Lily!

I am a daydreamer, storyteller, adventurer, and creative entrepreneur based in Amsterdam. 

LilyWanderlust originally began back in 2009 (when I first moved to Amsterdam) to share my daily adventures and expat experience. After a short hiatus, I relaunched this blog as a creative space and photo journal to chronicle my everyday adventures in Amsterdam and beyond. 

As an eternal optimist with a heart full of wanderlust, I believe my next adventure is always on the horizon - whether it's exploring a secret corner of my adopted city or jetting off somewhere new. 

By day (and often night) I work as a freelance photographer + brand creative. When I'm not off exploring for work or leisure, you can bet that I'm probably cruising around Amsterdam on my trusty, yellow omafiets or floating along the canals on a boat with a few cameras in tow. On rainy days, I'm usually in the kitchen making extra spicy hot sauce, trying out new taco flavors and dancing around to Motown hits in my kitchen.
