My Story

Hello! My name is Wailana, I’m a travel writer and blogger.3edde4d

I’m from Hawaii and I’ve been traveling from the ripe old age of 2, which basically spoiled me from the 9-to-5 thing. When I graduated with my MFA in Creative Nonfiction, I realized I wanted to go full-time expat, and so I hit the road.

I’ve traveled through 38 countries and lived in Saudi Arabia, Japan, Morocco, South Korea, Oregon, Iceland and now Sweden. My work has appeared on travel-centric sites like: Slow Travel Stockholm, Matador Network, The Blonde Abroad, Willamette Intl Travel,  Epic Iceland and many others. 

I moved to Stockholm in the Summer of 2016. When I’m not freelancing, I’m navigating my way through this large and interesting city.

You can find me on Twitter, InstagramLinkedIn and Contently

I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside Wailana for multiple assigned blogging tasks. I was immediately reassured of her work ethic and ability to meet timelines after the first week. Her ability to self-start and create great work off of just a mere given topic was quite useful to me during busy times. Another highlight was her initiative to follow up and ask for feedback to ensure I was content with the quality of work provided mid-way through our contracted time frame. I would happily recommend her to anyone looking for a blogger that takes the pressure off managing another employee and receiving great content.
