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!
