About One Step Wanderer
Once upon a time there lived a girl named Jessie Schultz. She grew up with a love of stories and a yearning to learn everything around her. She fancied herself like Belle from Beauty and the Beast, her nose constantly in a book and always dreaming of faraway lands and magical places.
She wanted to take a step back in time. She wanted to step into the lands of her favorite stories and bring them to life. She wanted to learn everything that she possibly could about the places she stepped into. When she wasn’t traveling, she wanted to read books that allowed her to step into new places, new times and new worlds.
If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m Jessie.
In 2018, these decades old dreams and desires led me to create One Step Wanderer. My love of learning and books dominates my travels. I’m not looking to tick places off my to-do list. No, no. I dive head first into the history, literature and culture of a place to learn as much as I can to truly appreciate it. I look beyond the words of books to live out the magic of my favorite books.
I’ll walk in the footsteps of the mysterious Incas, search for Hogwarts, recreate history in the ever-changing streets of New York City, and never stop looking for beautiful bookshops that continue to open up my horizons.
