Hi, My name is Kelsie!

 Lifestyle & Travel Blogger currently living in the PNW

Welcome to my blog! The Introvert’s Journey is a passion project of mine that I have been wanting to begin for a very long time. Writing has always been my calling and a creative outlet for me to express myself. I started this blog in the hopes that it will help me to develop as a writer and to help break up the monotony of my daily life. I’m your average daydreamer that works the daily 9-5 grind, as I’m sure many of you can relate to! I’m also an introvert that is looking for ways to break out of my routine and quiet shell. This blog is a way for me to pursue my personal interests and aspirations in life, and I hope to inspire others to make time to pursue their passions and dreams as well.

I’m a Pacific Northwest girl and an Island girl all rolled into one! That’s really the best way to describe me and my lifestyle. I’m a lover of culture, food, health & fitness, and fashion and I try to incorporate these themes into my travels. I’m currently a part time traveler and a full time 9-5 (and then some) worker, and I want to show you how to get the best of both worlds. The comforts of home life while obtaining the thrill and adventure of travel and exploration, whether internationally, in your own country/continent, or locally! Not everyone can quit their jobs or be a digital nomad for many reasons, but we can still find ways to escape, to learn, and to enjoy life if only for a little bit!

I’m passionate about diversity being a Cambodian American minority myself, as well as a former Army brat, and when I do travel I try my best to immerse myself with the locals & their lifestyles. We can learn a lot from our fellow human, and that is what travelling is all about to me, learning a new perspective, culture, and way of life. I think my experiences growing up as an Army brat have definitely contributed to my love of travel. I had to constantly adapt to new environments and different people and I was exposed to so many new experiences at a young age up until adulthood. I loved every second of it, even all the “bad” parts because they became life lessons for me. I am very fortunate that I was able to learn and appreciate the diversity of our world growing up. It has shaped me into who I am today and has definitely ingrained a passion for travel and new experiences in me.

Another thing I am very passionate about is health, fitness, and body positivity. I believe that every fitness journey is inspiring, thus you’ll see me keeping myself accountable on this blog in daily life and during my travels and I hope I can motivate you to get moving as well. We all can make time to better ourselves whether it is physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually. I’ve been on my fitness journey since 2012 and any advice I am able to share to help you on yours would make me more than happy!

I promise to always do my best to post interesting, inspiring, and/or relatable topics for my readers! Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time,
