About Away We Stray

I’m Cassy, a former Seattle Native who now considers herself a “Global Citizen”. I was like every other millennial, taught to go to college and get a good job. I even moved halfway across the USA to pursue this dream of the perfect job that would make me happy. (Newsflash: it didn’t.) So, after leaving a wonderful job in Greenville, South Carolina, I moved to Japan to teach English, and subsequently created Away We Stray. Fast forward 1.5 years, I’m now a semi-full-time blogger and freelance writer, still living a nomadic life working to make ends meet across the world. Half-blogger, half-yogi, half-mathematician, I use my spare time to help other people find adventures around the world.

Away We Stray is an adventure blog that focuses on slow and ethical travel opportunities. If you are interested in collaborating or working with me, please contact me here:
