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


Hey! 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 to EXPLORE.

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.

From Masha, with Love.


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