Hi! I’m Steph 🙂 Thanks for visiting my website! If you’re new around here, let me introduce myself. I’m a traveling petsitter and blogger living a digital nomad lifestyle in Bali.

You can read more about my story here.

I’ve been running this travel blog for 6+ years now, and have been nomadically living out of a suitcase since July 2020 (though I’ve been traveling solo for far longer).

I now teach other people how to solo travel and live a location independent lifestyle.

Travel Affiliate links

I’m an affiliate for several travel websites, which means I earn a small commission at no extra cost to you. As you can see, I only have a few. This is because I only advertise the products and websites I personally use over and over for my own travels.

It would mean a lot if you used my link to make any purchases — the profits go towards the cost of running this website and support me to create the free content I post on the interwebs. Ta!


You can shop anything on Amazon through my affiliate link here.

Trusted Housesitters

Wondering how I find my house and pet sits around the world? I’ve used Trusted Housesitters since 2019 and I’m still going strong. Basically you can stay for free in other people’s homes while they are away in exchange for looking after their pets. For animal lovers, this is a win win scenario. I’ve saved thousands of dollars in the last year doing long term house sits instead of renting accommodation.

Get 25% off an annual membership and in exchange I get a couple free months! Thanks for your support 🙂

Safety Wing

Get insured for your travels with insurance starting from as low as $40/month. I personally use Safety Wing’s digital nomad insurance, which covers health (including covid), travel and personal items like lost luggage or tech gear.

You can browse their package options here.

Pssst…this page contains affiliate links.

If you purchase a product through one of my links, I may get a small commission at no extra cost to you.

This goes towards the cost of maintaining this website and creating free content for readers like you!

Thanks for your support.
