About Shelli

Our kids left home, so we did too! My partner and I are currently working our way around Australia. We have been on the road for over 2 years now and love EVERY minute of it. I am a passionate amateur photographer. I wish one day to sell some of my work but I feel I still have a long way to go. It gives me something to aim for anyway :D
