About the blog
This blog is a space where I share travel and lifestyle content in the form of in-depth destination guides, travel bucket lists, and packing lists, as well as, product and hotel reviews. These tips are always accompanied by dreamy travel photos to help spark the wanderlust in you.
Lost in Laurel Land was born out of the desire to share my adventures in the hope that you will be inspired to take your own dream trip, and also to help you plan your trip without breaking the bank!
Hey there, friend! My name is Laurel Wilson and I live in Cleveland, Ohio. I’ve lived here most of my life and love calling this amazing city my home.
One of my goals for this blog is to highlight my local adventures in an effort to show you that (contrary to popular belief) Cleveland is actually pretty cool. Don’t worry, I’ll convince you! 😉
My husband, Alex, and I got married in 2011 and have been traveling the world together since then. It is one of our favorite hobbies! When we aren’t traveling, we love exploring our hometown.
I am very passionate about travel. I believe that traveling can change your life tremendously by teaching you new things about not only yourself but other people. Seeing the way people from other cultures live is an incredible, humbling, and beautiful experience. You just cannot help but grow as a person while traveling!
Not to mention, it’s also incredibly fun and enjoyable! I also love helping others plan their own trips and giving inspiration on where to visit next. I’m always scheming up new and exciting travel plans, so follow along for all of my adventures!
