To be honest, I wasn’t sure what to think about Wanderlust when it first came to the Sunshine Coast in 2015. I was nervous that it would be a lot of very fit, very flexible, very healthy people and I just wasn’t sure I fit that demographic. Instead, I discovered my new favourite festival and we’re giving you the chance to make it yours too!
Wanderlust is a festival that defies definition. It’s not a music festival, but there’s music (this year’s festival features Arrested Development in their only Australian gig). It’s not a yoga festival but there is a LOT of yoga. In fact, there’s lots of things that Wanderlust is not. One thing for sure, it’s definitely not boring!
When I first entered the festival I was surprised how friendly and approachable everyone was. The presenters, teacher and musicians were just hanging out, chatting with everyone and enjoying being there as much as the festival-goers themselves. Due to mother-in-law babysitting issues, I’d been running late and missed a class that I’d been really looking forward to. Instead I slid into another class – one I knew nothing about. I immersed myself in the moment and let my anger and frustration wash away as I listened to the teacher… 50 minutes later I was super relaxed and had a smile from ear-to-ear. I drifted from class to class, soaking in the laughter, smiles and beats. How could I not love this?!
The day was topped off with a wine-tasting followed by a farm to fork dinner that evening and I knew I was hooked. Now, in just a few weeks, I get to do it all over again and I can hardly wait!
