Traveling than just seeing things. It’s about discovering, experiencing new places, sounds, cultures, local cuisines, and libations. Sometimes where you travel to is the reason to visit a place all by itself but more times than not, it is only part of the experience.

Hi, I’m Shelley. A freelance writer, photographer, globetrotter and blogger.

I am on a quest to find look places that are unusual, creative, unique, and special – the kinds of places you want to tell people about. This is my collection of places, restaurant reviews, winery tours, food tours, recipes and trip suggestions from around the world. They range from AirB&B to five-star hotels, for me special isn’t about the price, it’s about the character.

Cheers to our next journey,
