Wandrer December 2023 update: Hi from Hawaii 2

8 January 2024 by Craig in updates

Hello from the Wandrer Worldwide Headquarters, currently located in beautiful Hawaii 2 in Waldo County, Maine, USA. Never heard of Hawaii 2? Well, it’s kind of exclusive. We don’t like people finding out about it really. Maybe think of it as an exciting sequel to normal boring Hawaii?

Summer 2023 Wandrer wrap-up

8 September 2023 by Pearl in updates

Well, we blinked and suddenly we have a one-year old and the days are getting shorter and cooler here in Atlanta. I honestly don’t understand how a year has already flown by since our little baby was born, but she’s taken her first steps, so it’s probably time to start her Wandrer account and begin tracking her progress around the world. She also started daycare a few weeks ago, which means I have time, glorious time for working on Wandrer again. Here’s an overview of what’s new at Wandrer from the last few months:

Summer is here!

12 June 2023 by Pearl in updates

We’ve made it to early June and summer is in full force here in the northern hemisphere. We’re eating watermelon, splashing in the pool, and taking advantage of the extra light to squeeze in a little more exploration. I’ve been sneaking in work during our little 10 month old’s naptimes and it feels good to start to have a bit more consistency as she settles into a nap routine.

April Works in Progress

9 May 2023 by Pearl in updates

April was been a work-in-progress month for me and Craig at Wandrer. I’ve taken a step back, working fewer hours as our baby grows older and more interactive (and thus cuter and more fun, but also more demanding of attention and energy). Craig has been chipping away at some bigger projects that we’ll share more about in future updates. Here’s what’s new:

During our bike tour of Taiwan, Craig and I have spent a lot of time looking at and chatting about all the great signs we see. We decided that it’s high time to celebrate signs, have some fun with all you Wandrers, and give out a few prizes too!

Scooters of Taiwan

13 February 2023 by Pearl in updates, community

Curated by Craig, our favorite scooters of Taiwan. Shortly after we arrived, Craig noticed that there are many, many delightful scooter names and mottos all over the city. There are also a TON of scooters. It’s pretty common that we’ll be out walking and I’ll go to say something to Craig, only to realize that he’s giggling to himself about 30 feet behind me at a new scooter. Don’t worry, we’re not done with the trip and I’ll keep updating these as we go! Cheers, your diligent scooter documentation team.

What's happening at Wandrer

31 January 2023 by Pearl in updates

Congratulations to our yearly competition winners for 2022! Our top Wandrers for 2022 were graubünden (17,845 unique miles / 28,718 unique km on bike) and Pierre Paladin (3,312 unique miles / 5,330 unique km on foot). It boggles my mind to even contemplate traveling those distances by bike or on foot in a single year. This month we also highlighted two folks who use Wandrer and have done some impressive exploring, Bryan Bischof and Aaron Chamberlain.

Planning a Wandrer team adventure in Taiwan

21 November 2022 by Pearl in updates

Craig and I are planning our next big Wandrer adventure - a trip to Taiwan to cycle tour and work remotely. Of course, the real adventure is that we had a baby in August and have embarked on a lifelong parenting journey. Thus far, we are blessed with an easy baby, which makes taking her on a months-long adventure seem possible. The decision to have a baby was not an easy one for us, in no small part because we did not want to lose out on the ability to explore the world, both locally and further afield. This trip is a mission to prove to ourselves that it can be done.

Display a 5 km circle on your map

20 August 2021 by Pearl in features, updates

Craig recently added the option for our Australian friends to add a 5km circle on top of their Wandrer map in order to explore right up to the edge of allowable roads during lockdown. If you’ve ridden in Australia in the last month, then you should see a 5km button on the left-hand side of your screen. Click that button to activate!
