About Me

Hi I’m Serrana!

Literally translated my name means “mountain girl,” which is fitting since I was born and raised in the mountains of northern New Mexico. Even though I live in the city now, I’m still a nature girl to the core.

Being raise by gypsy artists, I was dragged all over the world from the time I was about three months old. They infected me with a nomadic fever, and I haven’t wanted to stop moving since. This was the best gift and education I could have ever asked for. By the end of this year I will have (technically) been to every continent except Antarctica. Islands count right?

For the past three and a half years, I have been writing in New York City. And even though she has completely stolen my heart, I still have the constant itch for adventure.

 I love trying strange foods, learning new languages, and people watching. More than that, I love writing about them.

Why did I start this blog?

I recently took my first solo trip. It was daunting to leave my life for an extended period of time, but now that I have done it, I see that it is not so hard to do. During this trip I was struck with the desire to share things that I have learned on my adventures, and also to learn about other people’s adventures. As a young woman, traveling alone can be intimidating. But I have also found that it is extremely liberating, and I wanted to share that feeling with other young people. Hopefully I can help inspire other people, female and male, to get out and see the world.

Thanks for reading!
