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!

Summer Reading

The sun is blazing, and the heat and humidity are creeping up all across Korea. If you’re stuck in landlocked Seoul, it’s all about survival, until the freshness and colour of autumn bring some much needed relief.

Fortunately, the ROK is a peninsula surrounded by refreshing water on 3 sides, and that means miles and miles of coastline. Whether it’s the white sand and blue water of the East Coast, volcanic vibes on Jeju Island, or the dynamic city beaches of Busan, you’re sure to find something to suit exactly your taste.

What do you have planned for summer?
