Welcome to For the Love of Passport Stamps.

Let me start you off by introducing myself. My name is Michelle and I was born and raised in a smallish town in South Africa.

After finishing high school, I went on to obtain my M.Sc in Biochemistry at Rhodes University. After studying for six years, I decided it was time I went and saw a bit of the world.

This led me teaching English in Busan, South Korea for two years. This experience was honestly life changing, and will be written about periodically. Yes, I do wish I had started blogging earlier… Leaving Korea was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do.

And now… I am about to embark on a year of traveling. First stop, Brazil!
