About SWTliving

Hey! My name is Selam, creator & writer for SWTliving. Thank you for landing on my site! 

I’ve always had an urge to travel, a certain wanderlust, but never really thought about capturing the places I visited. In 2014, my inspiration for travel photography began when I purchased my very first DSLR camera and prepared for my upcoming journey to Ethiopia. I was born in the United States as the daughter to Ethiopians, but I never had the opportunity to visit my ancestral lands. And so, I set on an adventure to explore Ethiopia.

Lalibela, Ethiopia

There I saw true beauty and captured unforgettable moments. My friends and family were delighted with the photographs and were curious to find out what I discovered. And that is how my travel photography journey began. I currently reside in France, where I continue my journey exploring the world’s vast landscapes & uncovering her unique history. 

SWTliving is a travel blog created to inspire cultural travel through photography and personal experiences.

Stay tuned as I continue to share my story and captured moments with you!
