Ten years ago I set a goal to visit 30 countries by my 30th birthday. With no plan or country list to fulfill this goal, I decided to let life take me where it wished. Never did I think it would have me:
- jumping off of mountains in the Tyrol (Austria)
- sleeping at a Nubian homestay with baby alligators crawling about (Egypt), or
- working with indigenous Dayak communities in Kalimantan (Indonesian Borneo).
“See Simi Travel | tales from a wandering woman“, is the account of an ex-20-something year old female exploring the world, usually solo, and on a very tight budget. The name originated from a friend who suggested that I find a way to let my friends and family back at home see me (Simi) while in pursuit of my travel goal.
Although I’ve already accomplished this goal, the traveling hasn’t stopped! I’m not sure if I will ever cure this travel bug, really. So every other week I plan to bring you a story about the friends, food, fun and fails I’ve had along the way.
Navigating this site:
This page “Thirty by 30” serves as the home page when I am not traveling.
“Things to See” (previously “She Saw”) things I’ve seen that I hope everyone else gets to see in their own lifetimes. It is divided into two pages, from A-M and from N-Z.
“Things to Do” (previously “Did Do”) experiences that I will never forget and sure you won’t either, and finally…
“Social Works” (previously “boulot“) details of the sustainable development initiatives I have been involved with along the way.
