I’m from Tbilisi, Georgia, a charming country with a perfect mixture of modern and ancient, Europe and Asia, delicious cuisine, and amber-color wine!
My love for traveling and experiencing new cultures, traditions, and customs made me realize that I want to make traveling a big part of my life. So in 2017, I decided to shift my career slightly, and from working as a journalist, I became a freelance travel writer.
I created Red Fedora Diary as a space to share my experience, travel stories, practical information, tips, hacks, and, most importantly, to inspire you to travel this colorful world on a budget. Along the road, Oto joined me on my travels as a loving and supportive husband, who takes pictures of me and helps out a bit with travel planning and blog management.
Aside from writing, I am a passionate photographer. Almost all the pictures you see on the blog are mine.
I love cooking and try to make those dishes I have tried during my travels
My classic cheesecake is an all-time favorite among friends
I have a BA in Mass Media and Communications from the University of New York in Prague
I have a ‘twin,’ my best friend, Mariam. She was also born on 13.11.87. I am just 8hrs older
I wanted to be a director, shooting video clips of sorts. But I ended up being a journalist/writer, and I LOVE IT!
I am a wife and a mommy of a Jack Russell Terrier named Louie, whom I would love to take with me all the time, but traveling with a dog has its restrictions and is topic for a whole blog post…
