A familiar face on KATU - Problem Solver Shellie Bailey-Shah - is gone for the summer. But not to worry - she'll be back and in the meantime she's sharing stories as she travels the world. Shellie is on a three-month sabbatical to visit 11 countries in 72 days. And the best part? You can follow along on her travel blog.

Her latest adventure took her and the family to new heights - literally! During a layover, they decided to let themselves get strapped onto the top of a building in Auckland, New Zealand. There was no railing to hold onto and they were encouraged to lean out over the edge and look down. It looks pretty scary - would you be willing to try it?

Shellie and her family have been planning their trip since 2011 and hope that their stories and travel advice will inspire others to plan their own journey.
