Your Travelling Guide


I gain inspiration from my frequent wanderings, and I’m drawn to places steeped in a deep sense of history, spirituality, and mystery – the more exotic, the better; they feel like home.

My travels become a catalyst for expansion outside the realms of day-to-day life.  I gather treasures along my journey – discarded books, papers, patterns, old texts – remnants of the cluttered life … the more imperfect the better. Insights, inspiration, freedom and meaning – all is fodder for my life and work.

My journey is my calling and my passion has evolved to become an invitation to others to open, explore, honour, share and celebrate their own lives.

Part Gypsy, Part Explorer.

As your travelling guide, it is my honour and pleasure to journey with you and share this tiny magical corner of the world.

If you have any questions about your call to adventure, please don't hesitate to send me an email.

Peace + Paint



"Sweet Sweet Memories of India ... A million thanks to you, Michelle, for a wonderful tour. I enjoyed the mix of hands on activities, seeing special sights and visiting the beautiful locals. Your attention to detail in every facet of our stay made me feel special, comfortable and safe. It was really PERFECT! – Donna Goulette

“Michelle was genuinely enthusiastic about the entire trip and made friends with the locals wherever we went. She reassured us when we were uncertain and clarified directions/instructions so we were absolutely clear about the “mission at hand”. Michelle’s love of place and infusive energy set an adventurous tone for every excursion we went on – she’s fun! ” – Katie Kendrick

“ Michelle was a terrific guide for our group of artists in Amsterdam. She had great suggestions for places to eat, to people watch and to bicycle and blend in with the local traffic (that’s saying a lot); she kept us safe and cared for during our stay in the city. She has a gift for making friends with the locals. I have always felt safe and cared for in her company and I hope to travel with her many more times in the future. I would recommend her as a guide in the future; she is a friend and a reliable arranger of a wonderful artistic experience. “ – Judy Wise
