San Francisco

Hello! I’m Christine and thank you for stopping by Tour de Lust (Tourist + Wanderlust)!

This blog is about girls who tour the world and lust after their next adventure. This is a place for me to share my travel guides & itineraries to help with your travel plans. It’s also a place to share awesome photos + travel tips + foodie experiences with one another. I’m a big foodie so be prepared to see mouth watering photos of what I eat! =)

I was born and raised in Los Angeles and moved to New York to explore the big apple. New York is a crazy city but I love every bit of it! I will always be a New Yorker at heart.

I currently live in San Francisco which is where I began my journey as a travel blogger and I’m always in search for my next adventure. I left my corporate job in April of 2017 and haven’t looked back since! Stop by my Bucket List page and let me know if you’ve done it! Thank you for visiting and don’t be afraid to say hello! I would love to hear your stories and one day cross paths.

Happy Travels!

    I really like your blog (and love that photo!). I’m currently living in China but heading to the US later this year so am loving your posts about the USA. Happy travels 🙂

    Hey Christine –
    Stumbled upon your blog and really enjoyed it! I love your pictures as well. I’m glad you’re having a blast in SF right now (from your latest post) as I’m a Bay Area native (woo!) but moved to LA and now OC. I just started taking my blog more seriously, and there’s so much to learn! The travel community has been awesome though, and I’m looking forward to meeting more people and growing my blog. I feel so inspired after going through others’ travel blogs and pictures, so just wanted to drop you a comment. Keep it up!

    Hi Christine! I stumbled across your ig and I love watching your journey. I am also from the bay! I wanted to ask how you took it upon yourself to take the leap and quit your corporate job and traveled? Did you have money said or how was the journey at the beginning? I really want to travel and I know a 9-5 for the rest of my life isn’t what I want. I just don’t know how to start and just pick up and go!

      Hi Tricia!

      It wasn’t easy! I was working full time and traveling as much as I can on weekends, holidays and using all my vacation days in order to have content. I saved up quite a bit before I left my job but it took me about a year. Feel free to email me if you have questions!
