About Peg Steley
I am a jewelry designer and travel blogger and have lived my life on four continents. Along the way I developed a knack for travelling light. Dump the baggage.
I’m an Aussie – my Dad, an adventurer was happiest in his gut-smeared fishing shorts. My Mum was an “English Rose”, a fashionista and Interior Designer. Their gritty elegance accompanies me wherever I go.
My family home in Hunters Hill, Sydney.
I had a privileged childhood – what my parents lacked in cash they made up for with imagination. Beer budget, Champagne Life. With my mother’s eye, I see beauty in unexpected places while my father’s spirit taught me to seek adventure. I am eternally grateful to both of them.
For 42 years I have lived with the elegant and charming “Big Daddy” who drives me crazy.
Then and now.
Big Daddy hates to travel! It is hard to be a travel blogger if you don’t go anywhere. My chance encounter with Margo Polo changed all that. She inspired me to travel on my own.
It was liberating. I had no one to please but myself. I could go where I wanted and do what I wanted. Margo inspired me to go away on my own to exotic and demanding locations – Bali, Morocco, central Mexico, Rajasthan, China, Tibet and Turkey, where I have collected many of the components of my jewelry pieces.
It was lonely at first and sometimes nerve-wracking, but I grew to love it.
At MargoPolo.club we want to help women feel safer, more confident and stylish when they travel and be able to pack with greater ease and efficiency by creating a “system” of travel clothing and curated accessories. Share the journey.
And if anyone wants to know, my favourite food is oysters. Come and eat oysters with me any time you want.
