About Vita

My vision is to make the world

a kinder, closer, and more connected place.

Hi there and welcome to my blog!


For those who don't know me, my name is Vita.

I was born in eastern Ukraine and when I was 5 years old my family immigrated to the United States. 

I've lived most of my life in San Francisco's bay area, but at age 18 I studied abroad in Florence, Italy and have never been the same since. People told me it would change my life, but I didn't realize how much until years had passed. I recommend everyone to study or live abroad at least once in their life!


Since then, I have visited over 24 countries and I'm not planning on stopping anytime soon.


Currently, I'm on a journey with my partner as he completes his Medical Degree. It's taken us to Australia for two years and now we call New Orleans 'Home'!


I am earnestly trying to put fingers to keyboard to remember all the experiences, advice and travel hacks for you to use for your next trips. And with my background in Anthropology, I hope to provide some insight into culture, expat life, and responsible travel.


I love answering questions and discussing #allthethings relating to travel. Send me an email or leave me a comment on one of my blog posts. I'm grateful you're here. 



So please, make yourself comfortable and take a walk in the world with me!
