About Us

The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.Christopher McCandless - Into the Wild


Good morning, Starshine! The Earth says hello!

Hello Earthians and welcome to Planet Earth Travelers! This is a shared blog with myself (Alyssa Buttarazzi) and Saewan Koh. You’ll find some of our blog posts containing separate travels, solo travels, current travels and past ones. You can find me teaching yoga, attending astronomy talks, rocking out in the middle of a mosh pit, meeting new people, and adventuring. I hope this blog inspires you to get out your front door not knowing what your day will bring, but to have the courage to try new things and explore this beautiful planet!


Hi it’s Saewan pronounced Swan like the bird! I’ve spent many summers working as a field scientist in different countries studying plants, wildlife and ecosystems. I learned some time ago that having caught the travel bug was a great thing. I enjoy backcountry camping, hiking, motorcycle and camper van touring and attending festivals. My favourite being the dusty Burning Man in Nevada. When I travel overseas I love to see the outdoors as much foreign culture. Cityside at home, I enjoy live music, art, and culture. Let me know where your travels have taken you and what you have learned by zooming off into the unknown.

Thanks for stopping by!
