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.
