Where in the world is Shellie Bailey-Shah?

A familiar face on KATU - Problem Solver Shellie Bailey-Shah - will be gone for the summer. But not to worry - she'll be back and in the meantime will be sharing stories as she travels the world.

Say what? That's right - Shellie is taking a three-month sabbatical to visit 11 countries in 72 days. And the best part? You can follow along on her travel blog.

Now of course, Shellie is always 'On Your Side,' so she'll be sharing travel tips along the way. She's already got information on preparing for a trip of this magnitude - everything from packing to getting vaccinations.

Shellie and her family have been planning this since 2011 and they hope that their stories and travel advice will inspire others to plan their own journey. If you'd like to send Shellie your thoughts, ask questions or just say hi, you can submit comments here. You can also go there to sign up for email updates from her blog.

Happy travels Shellie!
