Who is The Occasional Traveller?

  • Bucharest, Romania -Chimopar Factory
  • Nairobi, Kenya - Giraffe Centre
  • Galapagos, Ecuador - Isabela Island
  • Jaclynn Seah is The Occasional Traveller, a Singaporean who loves to travel despite holding a full-time job. She started the blog in 2010 when she realised one day at work that she had too many annual leave days leftover – she had actually forgotten to travel that year and needed something to spark that wanderlust.
  • This blog is written for the busy working professional who loves to travel despite having limited time. From handy tips to plan your own trips based on my own travels, to my travel stories and other things that inspire me to wanderlust – the ultimate idea is to remind you to take that time off for your next trip and travel more when you can.
