Let’s get to know one another…
Hi, I’m Shelley…
I help women cross Solo Travel & Mexico Travel off their bucket list!
A LITTLE ABOUT ME:
I’m a former Miami travel magazine editor who ditched the office for the world!
Well… that’s the short & sweet & neat version. The real version is a little more imperfect, a lot more scary & actually, I became a solo traveler by accident 😳
Like most unplanned things, however, it has empowered & fulfilled me in ways I could never have imagined!
I first arrived to Mexico on April 4, 2018 — with no plans of staying — but again, like most unplanned things, I loved this country way more than I could never have imagined!
The Hero’s Journey
HAVE YOU HEARD OF JOSEPH CAMPBELL?
If not, have you ever heard of Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, The Lord of the Rings & Star Wars? That was clearly a rhetorical question because of course you have!
All of these stories follow the concept Campbell called the monomyth, which means “one myth,” and refers to how our collective idea of a hero(ine) follows the same narrative cycle.
I’m pretty big into Campbell’s work. Throughout the last few years of my life, I have come to identify how my journey to becoming the confidant solo traveler I am today, was my Hero’s Journey.
