Welcome to Discovering Away!

This is a blog about discovering a way to make your dream of travel happen, while still keeping your commitments at home going strong.


Do you dream of traveling the world, but have a ton of commitments? It’s hard to see long term travel as an option when you have a mortgage, a car payment, a job and relationships to keep. I want you to know that is possible! I travelled solo for three months while still paying my bills back home, keeping close communication with my fiancé, family and friends, and having a job and a car to return home to.

Where is your dream destination? What do you want to experience? If you long for some adventure, freedom and inspiration – Get started with the 10 Steps to Your Dream Trip Free Guide I created.

10 Steps to Your Dream Trip Guide

About Discovering Away

My name is Sherri, and I’m a travelista. I created Discovering Away when I took my three month dream trip through New Zealand and Australia. I wanted to share my story because most of the blogs and experiences I read about were from people who quit their jobs and sold everything to travel, but I wanted to keep my life at home in tact, while embarking on an adventure. This is my story and I hope that it inspires you to take the leap to make your dream trip happen too.

I’m a graphic/web designer with a passion for photography. Here’s some of my work!

Life moves fast and there is no better time to pursue those inner urges than in your 20s. This is the freest you will ever be, free from the chains of mortgages, insurance policies and general responsibility. You are responsible to no one but yourself and your own whims. Life is about moving outside your comfort zones, about embracing the present moment, even if it scares you. There’s nothing more inspiring or life-changing than being engulfed in the beauty and culture of another world, another life. The people you meet abroad will play foreign ambassadors for the rest of your life. You will find yourself developing relationships in obscure corners of the world, conversing with people with different ideals, languages and cultures.
