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!

Spring Reading

Ahh spring. Time to cast off the darkness and grey of winter and rejoice in flowers, sunshine, and new life.

In Korea, spring means cherry blossoms. These gorgeous pink blooms cover the country, starting from the end of March and into April. Flower festivals take over the country, and the lantern parade for Buddha’s Birthday is a yearly spring highlight celebrated by hundreds of thousands of people.

What do you have planned for spring?
