About Me

Hello! I’m Sarah J. Booher. I’m so glad you made it here. I’m a Seattle-born American, currently living in Wellington, New Zealand. In 2016, I left my job in corporate advertising in NYC to travel, challenge myself, and reassess how I can fit work into the rest of my life—not the other way around.

For most of 2017, my partner, Gabe, and I toured New Zealand (his home country) in a ’97 Iveco camper van we’ve nicknamed “The Beast”—for all manner of growling and generally alarming noises he makes, especially up hills. Mostly, nine months of van living went smoothly, except the time his brake pad fell out while driving (woops!).

When winter came so cold that we literally froze, we packed our backpacks for six months in Southeast Asia, Borneo, and Japan. Now back in New Zealand, we’ll continue to explore, and share with you, the quirks of Kiwi-land. Curious about New Zealand or planning your own trip? I’d love to hear from you!

My current project is trying to recreate some of the spectacular dishes we devoured on our Asia travels, Taste Traveling from Malaysia, to Japan, Vietnam, and Thailand. It’s been some delicious fun!

As an avid traveler, I’m a firm believer that if everyone took one trip off their couch, continent, and out of their comfort zone every year, the world would be a better place. So here’s to your next adventure.

Cheers, and Stay Curious,
xo SJ
