Hi, name is Marlana. I’m originally from St. Louis, and have lived in Boston, Chicago and now Sydney, Australia. I’ve been obsessed with travel before I knew what wanderlust meant. I’d carefully study my father’s collection of foreign currency, pour over maps of the world, and loved driving by the airport just to get a glimpse of a plane taking off. My first travel memory is a long distance drive in a station wagon filled with family members. I don’t even remember where we were going, just that we were going somewhere.
Today I have my own collection of foreign currency and pour over travel books. I study travel routes in the back of the in-flight magazines. My means of transportation have gotten a bit better than that old station wagon, but the spirit of adventure is still there.
This site is a repository of photos from past trips and a place to keep tabs on future adventures, anecdotes that I want to write down before I forget them and things I’ve learned along the way.
I hope you enjoy looking around. Please drop me a line and suggest new adventures or ask questions about old ones. And, of course, for more pictures, please visit my Flickr.
