The view of 3 beaches from Kata Viewpiont..

“wherever you are is where you are meant to be!”

I’m Masha.

Tracking my explorations of beautiful places around the world. Born in Russia and raised in America, I grew up globe-trotting with my family. From this, my passion for cultural experiences developed.

Now I realize I have been blessed with an early start on exploring the world around me. I wish to inspire others to step outside their comfort zone and follow those deeper desires.

Whether solo, with a friend, or a tour group, we are meant to adventure out there and see places unlike our home. I hope my blog can assist or encourage you on your current or future treks.

Thanks for reading and please share about your journey too, I would love to hear from you, feel free to email me: mashabrown@aol.com

From Masha, with Love.


Challenge Bay, Phuket, Thailand. Warmest waters I have ever swam in.
