Olympic Park pink muhly during autumn in seoul

Hi! I’m Shelley, the woman behind the words.

I’m a coffee loving, cubicle hating, toddler toting introvert, who quit the grind 10 years ago… to live life on my own terms.

Traveling & living around the world has changed my life in all the very best ways. And I hope the words and images here inspire you not just to dream, but to actually set forth on an adventure of your very own.

On my blog, you’ll find destination guides, down to earth travel advice, and way too honest info about the 61 countries I’ve visited independently so far. Follow along, comment and ask me all your burning travel-related questions. Let’s connect!

Autumn in Korea

The months of September, October, and November bring welcome relief from the heat and humidity of summer. This is my favourite time of year in Korea with stunning landscapes, comfortable temperatures, and clear skies.

What to do in Korea in Autumn

This is definitely the season to get out there and explore! From mid-October to mid-November, all of Korea is painted in a incredible canvas of gorgeous autumn colour. Head to national parks awash in fall foliage, pink muhly hotspots, royal palace, and just enjoy the beauty of Korea’s best season!
