MEET THE WORLD UP CLOSER

Hi everyone! My name is Shea Powell, the Creator and Adventurer behind The World Up Closer.

With such a wandering heart and an inspired mind to travel my thoughts has somewhat led me to a world experience of which I am happy to share with like-minded globetrotters, travelers and dreamers in this little space I call, The World Up Closer.

Having thought that my ventures would likely be impossible due to the lack of time and insufficient funds to constantly be on the go; what has solely begun as a semester abroad gave me a push and a clearer view that this was indeed possible.

Having done my first solo trips in South America, adding to the list some of the cheaper countries and scarifying some nights out with friends were some of the things I had to do.
