About me

In May 2011, I went on a 4-month holiday through Latin America, that turned into 13 months.

Essentially, I chose backpacking over being a proper grown-up. It’s not a choice that most women in their early 40s would make.

This blog is about meeting everyday people & hearing their extraordinary stories. It’s about about eating things I never imagined & dancing to music I don’t know the words to.

It’s about my life on the road: a series of big adventures, small pleasures & happy accidents.

Even though I’m home now, I still have a few more travel posts to come. After that, I’ll very likely keep writing, as I am seeing everything now with fresh eyes.

So sign up, live vicariously, and don’t forget to send through any complaints, compliments and pasta-sauce recipes to chelle1811@gmail.com
