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

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

~ Cesare Pavese

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!

Top 4 Posts for Summer

Summer in Korea is hot, humid, wet and generally pretty uncomfortable. If you’re stuck in Seoul, you’ll be seeking relief from the blazing temperatures… and you’ll find it on the East Coast or in the turquoise waters surrounding Jeju Island.

This is definitely the one season of the year, that I want to get on a plane! The cool mountains and lakes in Canada offer a lovely respite. But in my opinion, there’s no better place to be than on the beaches of Greece!

What’s your favourite place to be during summer?
