Hi, I'm Claire! Welcome to my blog about exploring the world and living in London!


I was born, bred and educated in New Zealand, but as soon as I was old enough to ‘fly the coop’ set off to explore the world, and I haven’t looked back since.

Over the last twelve years I've lived in New Zealand, America, Japan and am currently based in London, UK. I've also travelled to over 50 countries along the way – check out my travel list here.

Somewhere Yonder in BULGARIA!!


Somewhere Yonder is where I write about my travel experiences as I hopefully get closer to finding the place I will call home one day.

Over the years I've fallen in love with the world, it’s diverse cultures, people and landscapes, and now I'm not quite sure where I belong. During my travels I've met a handful of people who have found their place in the world, the most unlikely people in the most unlikely spots. I'm still looking for mine...

…so join me as I document my journey exploring every corner of our beautiful planet, making the best of what London has to offer, and hopefully, one day, finding home.

Somewhere Yonder in JAPAN!!


News flash: I'm going to be a mum this coming November! Read about babyhood - my next big adventure here.

Right now, I do my best to blog twice a week. Visit me here every Monday and Thursday for travel, London and blogging inspired posts.
