Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness and fears.

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!

Spring in Korea

The months of March, April, and May bring cherry blossoms, colourful flowers, and all the optimism to South Korea. It’s the season to throw off the thick layers, put on your most comfortable shoes and explore the country.

What to do in Spring

Spring in Korea is synonymous with cherry blossoms. Millions of people are drawn to their beauty at festivals all over the country, but the Jinhae Cherry Blossom Festival is probably the most famous.

If that doesn’t strike your fancy, rent a hanbok, wander a Joseon era palace, or partake in a rowdy outdoor K-bbq!
