Wayfare West

Are you ready to travel more for less?


A travel blog for the modern day nomad. 

If you've got that insatiable desire to explore further, more often and for less bank, then this, is for you. 

Wayfare West is a state of mind. It's that itchy feet feeling you get that has you eager to get out into the world, to travel, to explore, to see, do, discover – you just can't explain it. It's the reason you buy the next flight, and the one after that, and the one after that. It's that burning desire to get your hands dirty, to overwhelm your senses, and do things you never thought you could. It's more than simply wanting to travel, it's the need to.

My mission is to inspire you to get out there to explore – whether that's two months on the other side of the world or a weekend adventure in your very own backyard. Through insightful storytelling, transformative travel and wild adventures, Wayfare West delves into inspiring places all around the world, to encourage you to adventure more often. 

Now let's get exploring.


Meet the Author, Chelsie

First, I've gotta say, I’m pretty freaken excited you’ve come this far. Wayfare West was created out of a love for creating content, and quickly turned into something I'm really quite passionate about. So it means a lot to me that you're here, reading today. 

Now, where do I even begin?

Well, I usually write ‘copywriter’ on my passenger card at the airport – but that's not quite the truth. I mean, I’m a copywriter but I'm also a photographer, an art director, an account manager and well, the list goes on. I’m one of those 'lost millennials' that couldn’t focus on one career, so I made a career out of everything. I like to call myself a storyteller because, in its most basic form, that's what I do.

I've always been fascinated by the world. So as soon as I had the chance, I went out there to explore it. I'm sure you can guess what happened next – once I started, I couldn't stop.


I’m honestly happiest when I travel – it makes me feel alive. And when you’ve found something that makes you feel that way, you make it a priority in your life.

Now, I’m not one of those ‘quit your job to travel the world’ kind of bloggers. As much as I love to travel, I also love the sweet comfort of home – I believe the two compliment each other. 

So, I’m on a mission to shake things up. To encourage you to travel more for less, with purpose – not to escape your life, but to enrich it.

I know life gets in the way sometimes, so I'd like you to treat Wayfare West as a space for a moment of solitude just for you. For inspiration and that little nudge you sometimes need to be your very best – no matter what that means for you, own it, live it, be it. 

So, here's to the crazy world of travel. Thanks for being here with me.

– Chels
