Hi, my name is Shari and I love to travel.
I know everybody loves to travel, but believe me – I love to travel. I’ve experimented with different travel styles – weekending, resort life and backpacking. It all depends on my mood, my travel partner and the destination. My personal favourite is slow travel. The one where I can choose to stay in a place for 1 week but extend that to 3 months. For me slow travel means minimalism, learning a new culture/language, creating relationships with the locals and the empowerment of self. I grow the most in solo travel, so I always travel with a diary and I write some of my thoughts under the ‘Self Love‘ category.
Why the name ‘Salty Mango‘? I was waiting for a bus in Southern Colombia going between Mocoa and Pitalito. At the bus station, the only food available was fried foods. There usually is someone selling some kind of fruit so I walked through the different stalls looking for something healthy to no avail :(. I boarded my bus after not finding anything. As I waited for the bus to get full, a man with a cart walked into the bus station selling mango. I called to him from the bus window and before he handed me the fruit, he asked me if I wanted salt on it. And it was there I got the inspiration for the name.
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and I hope that you find the content worthy to be shared 😀
