About The Everywhereist

AKA Geraldine DeRuiter

Just Someone’s Opinion

“Geraldine DeRuiter’s husband Rand has a job that takes him around the world. After she was laid off from her job, she started tagging along with him and blogging their experiences at the Everywhereist… She says she blogs to help Rand remember where they’ve been and what they’ve seen. But this consistently clever site lets the rest of us go along for the ride too — even when the couple is just hanging out at home in Seattle.”

~ TIME Magazine, Best Blogs of 2011

Geraldine’s Official Bio

Geraldine DeRuiter is an acclaimed author, world-renowned public speaker, and the voice behind the award-winning Everywhereist blog. She finds it very difficult to be self-promotional, so she hopes that you understand how hard that last sentence was for her to write.

(Also, this is supposed to be in third person? That’s just weird.)

While ostensibly a travel writer, Geraldine also writes about dessert, feminism, and Jeff Goldblum’s entire filmography. TIME Magazine described her work as “consistently clever” and The New York Times said her writing was “dark and hilarious”. Her blog has received accolades from The Independent, Forbes Magazine, and The Huffington Post, because sometimes features editors get drunk.

When not on the road with her long-suffering and infinitely patient husband, Rand, Geraldine can be found in Seattle, usually fighting with people on the internet.

  • Ugh, hard same, gems. Hard same.

Watching this sweet show made lockdown a little easier. #stevenuniverse #stevenuniversefuture
  • It is the apex of privilege that I can walk around my neighborhood, face covered, and know that no one will think twice about it. Trying to be more aware of that privilege, and how I can use it for good. But even talking about it feels self-congratulatory. #irunwithmaud
  • When Alison Roman says to put her slow roasted salmon on a bagel, you do it. This was just lovely.
  • This is the team up I've been waiting for. ❤️❤️❤️
  • Had a video podcast call today. Host joked that the dress code was formal. Challenge accepted. (I've never had the chance to wear this dress out.)
  • Make Kouign Amann, they said. It'll be easy, they said. You definitely won't set off two smoke alarms, they said. #quarantinebaking #kouignamann #instadesserts
  • Would I go so far as to call myself a baking genius? Yes. Yes, I would. 😅

My family is from the south, so we would call this pizza bianca ("white pizza) - and nobody really made it at home. But I became obsessed with it when we went to Genoa, and Rand and I seek out whenever we're in Liguria. We may have canceled our Italy trip, but I'll be damned if I'm not eating all the carbs. #saminnosrat #focaccia #saltacidfatheat
  • Before, and after. We're both sort of surprised by how well this home haircut turned out. Apparently I know how to do a gorgeous fade? I will not be exploring this talent further. #superstressful #tookforever #quarantinehaircut
  • No, I'm not making the damn bed.
  • Took a walk today, because, well, what else is there to do? Apparently a lot of folks had the same idea, because keeping my six feet of distance from everyone was tricky (I walked down the center of a lot of side streets). And while the sidewalks were full, the stores were empty and locked up - and it's so hard to see that and not know what the long term impact of this will be. A good reminder to support places if you can, keep your distance, wash your hands, buy gift certificates, tip your delivery driver, don't take more than what you need, and remember: we're all in this together.
