My name is Alaina (Uh-Lay-Nuh for English speakers, Elena for Spanish speakers) and this is my blog. I’m a writer, a poet, a storyteller, a teacher, and I work in Marketing & Communications. I’m constantly seeking out opportunities to learn new things, which could take me anywhere. While my residence or career may shift, my hope is to make this a constant home where I can share the many adventures, stories, challenges, and small anecdotes about traveling, living out dreams, stepping outside comfort zones, teaching, creative writing, being queer, mental health, wellness, and coping with this wild journey.
Currently, I’ll be chronicling my life in the United States, and all the trips and food eaten between. I hope you see little pieces of your self in my words and discover something valuable in what I have to say. Thanks for reading!
