If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light.

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!

Winter in Korea

Not gonna lie – winter in Korea can be downright freezing! You’ll need to bundle up to enjoy the months of December, January, and February in Korea, but there’s plenty to keep you occupied.

What to do in Winter

Locals flock to the brilliant lighting festivals that can be found across the country. And while Koreans don’t celebrate Christmas like we do in the West, there’s plenty of trees, festivities and feasts to take part in. Head to a ski resort for winter sports and sledding, then relax your weary bones in a steamy jjimjilbang for the ultimate winter treat.
