Traveling the world through books and my own two feet

I’m reading books written by women from every country in the world.


what you’ll find here

I have an extreme case of wanderlust that I cure through traveling and reading books from near and far.



In 2013, my husband and I spent a year traveling and it changed a lot about me and my outlook. You’ll find trip posts here and I’m slowly adding more from places we have lived or visited in the last five years.



I’m on a mission to read a book written by a woman author from every country in the world. Both to be exposed to new writers and new ideas. And to travel through words.
