Twipper of the Week is Alana from Paper Planes.


Current city: At this very moment, Seattle.

Age: 28

What makes you interesting: I’ve been living in Chiang Mai, Thailand for the past three years…which makes me interesting to some, and crazy to others.

Total countries visited: 21 but soon to be 23! I’m heading to two new countries next month.

Most magical place on Earth: Depends on where you are and who you’re with at the time. Paris and the northern hills of Thailand are probably my favorite places in the world though…

Best travel advice: Be open and flexible, it will make any situation go much more smoothly.

What people say when they travel with you: I’m always the one with the map figuring out where to go.

#1 thing you must do when traveling: Walk. Walk wherever you can and at different times of day. You never know what you’ll see, do or come across.

Next travel destination: I’ll be spending a month in Europe heading to cities in Spain, Croatia, Greece, England and France…it will be a big change for me after being in Southeast Asia for so long!
