My name is Alena and I am a writer, photographer, student, and human who seeks to connect people and places through photography and writing. I created Travel, She Writes as a platform dedicated to sharing experiences and perspectives from my travels and to reflect on what I learn along the way.
This is not a lifestyle blog: there is no greater privilege than to be able to learn from experience and therefore the goal of this project is to enrich my own life and also encourage others to work to understand the world around them. My intent is not to tell you how to enjoy your life, but simply to encourage you to pay attention as you do.
Based in Boston, sometimes and elsewhere, mostly. Formerly in Belgrade and London.
