About me


My name is Elena Nemets and I am glad to welcome you in my blog.

I was born in the Soviet Union and in my childhood I did not even think I would be able to get to the places on the other side of the "iron curtain" – London or Paris, New York or Bangkok, New Delhi or Rio de Janeiro. They sounded distant and unreal. I made my first trip abroad when I was 14 and started travelling extensively when I was 27. Since that time I have visited 50 countries and do not plan to stop. 

This blog was created to give forward the gift of being able to explore the world. You would find here stories and photos from far-away countries and practical tips and lifehacks for those who are planning the trips. 

While travelling, I also like to spot interesting marketing features, business models for tourism industry and travel start-ups and to bring them to your attention. I would be happy if you implement some of these ideas in your business or travel destination.

Now I live in Israel – a beautiful country with incredible history, nature and people. I would be happy to contribute to initiatives to develop the tourism in Israel and to unleash the country's potential.
