My name is Joely (Jo-eh-lee). I’m just a (“spirited”) girl in love with seeing new things, meeting new people and living life. I spend as much time as I can exploring new places, talking to strangers and eating weird stuff. Life is short. And I don’t want to waste it. This blog is my way of sharing some of what’s in this great big world with, well… the world. I write about the places I go, people I meet, mistakes I make, and things I love.
I enjoy it all, from big cities to sparkling beaches and everything in between. I take tons of photos (way more than necessary) and am obsessed with capturing the moment. You’ll find many of them here (most of them on my insta). Along with stories of what I was doing, thinking, saying or feeling when I took them. I’m an amateur when it comes to writing, but I hope you’ll bear with me.
So far, I’ve visited 22 countries (lived in five). Currently, I’m seeing a lot of Asia, since it’s where work takes me. But I’m determined to go everywhere.
Born and mostly raised in Puerto Rico. Went to secondary school in Europe. Moved a lot (it’s probably why I love traveling so much). I love adventure, laughing, music (especially live), animals, coffee, snowboarding, and nature, among other things. Rarely serious. Super friendly. A little loud. Really… I’m just a big kid.
