For those of you who are new here – hello! I’m Shelby and I am the creator of The Fernweh Wolf! I am currently somewhere in Europe with the love of my life who I have trapped in my never-ending adventure. I thought it might be nice to do a 51 Things You Didn’t Know About Me post because maybe you haven’t gone through all my posts (there is a lot) and I wanted to let you guys get to know me better!

    Hahahaha I laughed at a lot of these! Especially #19! I have the same thing about phones, only not just with strangers, with pretty much anyone (aside form my parents and my boyfriend). When I was little my mom used to make me phone relatives when they’d send christmas presents and things in the mail and I always used to have huge panic attacks over it. Or when I *should* go to the doctor for something I usually just ignore the problem and pray it goes away by itself… 😛

    Wow we have heaps in common! I particularly feel you on the point of loving batter more than the result and the smell of vanilla is all I need in life haha! Also I love that you spent so much time in Australia!
