Business Card SelfieHello and welcome to Skye Travels. Yes, Skye is my real name. My mom was debating between Aaron and Zach, and finally chose Zach. When she mentioned this to my grandmother, she said no way. My family heritage is Dutch and German, and Zach means the same as “sack.” My granny said there was no way her grandson would be called a brown paper sack, and said instead I needed to be named after something without limits, like the sky. My mom had been quite a hippy, and readily agreed. Additionally, both my parents had been to the Isle of Skye, a decade apart, and thought the island was the most beautiful place in the world, so used the spelling for my name. Ironically, I’ve since been to the Isle of Skye myself, and I agree with their assessment.

In 2014, I quit my life to become a travel blogger. Skye Travels is written to encourage and help you to follow your dreams, whether they be a life of travel, a much-need vacation or some other path in your life. I also write to help you in your travels once you begin. If you ever need help from me, you have only to ask. I also offer services for promotional content on my blog, one-on-one travel advice, social media management and, if I’m in town, authentic Thai Massage.
