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 done my first solo trips in South America it has inspired me to go over and beyond. 

I now travel for a living and share the experience as I go along. 

Come on the journey with me and see how I experience The World Up Closer.
