Hello & welcome to my little corner of the internet. My name is Alena and I will be running this blog to document my travels both for my own benefit as a way to share these opportunities with as many people as possible.
Despite my hesitance to share most of my creations I have always loved writing and find it significantly easier to communicate on paper (or in this case, on digital paper) than out loud. Over the past three years I've watched several friends start blogs of their own and been intrigued by the idea. However, there was the small issue that I didn't have anything that I wanted to talk about.
Since my study abroad experience this past summer, this has changed. I realized that, beginning while still in high school, I rarely spent more than one month in the same city. Though I don't live any kind of extravagant, vagabond, lifestyle, I have definitely earned the titles of 'unlost nomad' and 'queen of transportation' as I have dubbed by friends. The more I though about it, the more I realized that I had too many travel stories that were too strange not to share; this blog will be a combination of past and present adventures.
My goal in starting this blog is to use it as a platform to share my experiences with others and to push myself to be reflective so as to truly gain the most from this journey. Please join me as I begin my whirlwind of a year come 2017. Happy reading!
