About me

Esther Gittoes

I'm the face behind the website; 'A Woman consumed by Wanderlust. 

Since I can remember I have always had a fascination of travelling to obscure places, to meet people with stories to tell and to inspire those who haven't travelled to travel immediately. 

My academic background to date has been in multimedia journalism, international development and travel writing. 

I not only have an obsession with travel, but my other passions are interiors, maps and animals. 


This blog was created in 2012 in India and was born originally as a creative outlet. A Woman Consumed by Wanderlust later evolved into A Travel and Lifestyle website.  This website cultivates my love for travel and writing and is my own sanctuary from the conformity of today. 

I'm always on the lookout for new destinations, unique travel ideas and quirky places to stay - so be sure to get in touch.

The future

A WOMAN CONSUMED BY WANDERLUST has always been a creative outlet for my travel stories and lifestyle posts. Looking to the future of this site, I'm keen to take it in a new direction.  I want to grow this website to become an interactive tool for people wanting to know about a particular country or city. I want to share the history, tips, places to stay, what to do and where to go.  I'm keen for the website to become a one stop travel site for people wanting to know everything about a place. 

So come along for the ride!
