My travel blog has been an absolute must-read of the last almost five years. I share my impressions openly and sincerely in my projects, without embellishment and unnecessary "glamor". My projects not only introduce countries but inspire readers all over the world, give them travel ideas. This is inspiring and provides strength to move forward and be even more exciting and valuable for your readers!
How it all started
I was born on November 20, 1990, in the city of Magnitogorsk, Chelyabinsk region. From the very childhood, she was a very active and capable girl. She studied well, participated in school life, went in for sports. Best of all, I was given the study of English. My parents supported my hobby for foreign languages and helped me develop in this direction.
I have always been light on my feet; I have always been attracted by unexplored horizons, new people, and countries. Passion for travel and foreign languages determined my future profession. I met my first move from Magnitogorsk to St. Petersburg to enter a university with enthusiasm. And a few years later, in 2012, she already held in her hands a diploma of higher education from the Institute of Foreign Languages of the city of St. Petersburg, specializing in "Linguist-translator".
After graduation, I worked as a translator for international delegations from different countries. I tried to learn more about culture, traditions, life, interesting places, and sights on all trips. From the notes I made, interesting articles later turned out. Day after day, closely communicating with foreigners, I realized how superficial our knowledge of the life of people in other countries is. In 2016, I decided to change my life and set off to travel drastically! Knowledge of foreign languages - English and Spanish - gave me an excellent opportunity to expand my geographies. This is how the travel blogger and journalist Elena Volkova was born: I created my website, within which I kept an author's blog, published a travel diary, and posted my thematic articles.
