About Me

Hello! My name is Crystal Merrill. I am a  teacher, traveler, and beginner blogger. I write to share how simple and enjoyable traveling can be.

I believe this life is too short to stay in our comfort zones, there are too many crazy-beautiful things in this world to explore. 

I am an Idaho-bred country girl. I started traveling at a young age and haven’t been able to stop!

I recently finished teaching English in South Korea and just returned home after trekking through SE Asia. Take a look at my Destination page to see all the amazing adventures I had during my 3 months of backpacking.

I studied at Utah State University and earned my B.S in Elementary Education. I worked for one year, teaching 1st Grade, and I loved it! So why did I flee the country? Well, my dream to explore the world never went away.

There are many parts of the world that are unfamiliar, unknown, and sometimes intimidating. However, I put my fears aside and decided to follow my dream. 

You really can!

I hope this blog entertains, gives inspiration to follow dreams, and motivates you to see the world!

A little about me … 

  • I have a love/hate relationship with hiking (but the view is always worth it).
  • I could spend days on a beach doing absolutely nothing.
  • Once I’ve connected with a book, it won’t leave my side until I’m finished. 
  • My latest hobby is yoga and I am determined to conquer the headstand.
  • I think laughing is a quick remedy and we should all laugh a little more.  

I’m thrilled to join the blogging world and share my adventures with you! Check out my post about my experience teaching in South Korea. Like what you’ve read? Please subscribe to my blog.

Thanks for reading!
