Make it obvious that you’ve caught the travel bug! Use a bunch of maps to cover a shirt or create a skirt, then top it off with pipe cleaner antennae, and everyone will know that you’re always ready for your next adventure.

If you’ve dreamed of being on The Amazing Race, this is your chance to make it happen! Grab a partner, throw on matching athletic clothes, lace up your hiking boots or running shoes, and you’re ready to compete for Halloween candy! Accessorize with a clue envelope and a map, and make sure you bring your passport because you can’t make it to the next pit stop – or Halloween party – without it.

Always ready for a road trip? All you need for a Halloween costume that showcases your love of the open road is a black or gray sweatshirt, some yellow or white tape to create lane lines, and a toy car to head down the highway to anywhere.

If your friends never know where to find you because you’re always traveling, this is the perfect costume! A red and white shirt instantly transforms you into Waldo when you complete the outfit with a pair of jeans, a red and white striped hat and thick black glasses. When you head out on Halloween, everyone will know exactly where you are!

Now that you have a different identity for Halloween, try on a a different city, too! Book a ticket on Wanderu and show off your love of travel by taking your Halloween costume on a trip to somewhere new!

I'm a writer, journalist, soccer lover and hot sauce enthusiast born and bred in the mighty Andes. Wanderlust hit me hard at a young age and since then, it keeps me up at night. NYC and Modena, Italy changed my life, but my favorite destination is still Rio de Janeiro – and not only for the 'futebol'!
