Globetrotter. Aspiring minimalist. Left the corporate grind to craft a meaningful life.

Hello! I am Wendy. My husband and I recently minimised our lives & walked away from corporate jobs to pursue long-term travel. I am taking my newly minted coding skills on the road, documenting our journey along the way, and putting my love for travel-planning to good use. This blog documents stories from my days in the Peace Corps, grad school, 5 years of corporate grinding in Shanghai, and of course, all the wandering that has taken place. I write, to pay-it-forward, and I hope you find these stories useful, or at least amusing. Thanks for reading!


After walking away from the corporate grind, I put myself through a 9-week intensive coding camp. Next up, we leave Shanghai for good and will embark on the grand voyage to travel from Shanghai to Strasbourg via the Trans-Siberian rail!
