About the Blog

Hey, how’s it going?

Thanks for checking out my blog! Here’s a little bit about me:

  • I love to move, to call new places home! Presumably you do too, or you like reading about sparkling vistas, mountain echoes, and breathing deeply 🙂
  • Anything that involves culture fascinates me endlessly. That means all of life fascinates me, which means that I’m (almost) inexhaustibly curious.
  • I’m currently serving in the Peace Corps in Jamaica, and recently moved to my home for the next two years in the Blue Mountains, where coffee is king. Every day, I learn something new, and realize how much I have yet to learn. Get ready to learn with me! Through my stories, I know you’ll come to love dis rock with as much spice as Jerk Chicken, as much energy as a dancehall beat, and as much passion as the Jamaicans I feel so privileged to call family   ❤

In case you’re curious, I thought of my blog’s title, The Cash Odyssey, while reading….The Odyssey! Like Odysseus, I know that life is a journey. Thus, this blog relates my adventures while at home in Jamaica, travelling or otherwise. And so I embark on this odyssey.

I feel rude not asking about you, though, so please tell me your story! This is a space for all of us to share our funny, sad, odd, oddly amusing, joyous and otherwise enthralling experiences. Divulge away!

With that, I leave you with something that I hope makes you smile, for that is my deepest wish as you read.

“Life is short. Smile while you still have teeth.”

  1. Hi Sarah,
    I remembered you from my trip to Vilnius last summer – we were on the same sightseeing tour. You, a Ukrainian girl and I were the 3 women there travelling solo (or that’s what stayed in my mind). I remembered the name of your blog and today I finally took a peek. After reading several of your posts and thoughts I’m happy and amazed to see that you still live somewhere in the world like a local 🙂 Wish you all the best and good luck, Edyta


    • Yes, I remember meeting you. That was a lovely tour and it was so nice to meet fellow female travelers! Thank you for taking a peek at my blog and I hope you keep traveling 🙂
