I’m Jelena, a traveler, a photographer, and an Explorer.
My nickname – Silverfoxlv, consists of an old joke (I’ll tell that joke later) that stuck to me and became my official alias, and location code. I’m starting this blog coz I was asked so many times by my followers and friends “when you will make your blog, when can we read it.” People asked for hidden gems, maps, insider info, and many other things.
And to be completely honest, I tried to do that in my IG post, but as it showed no one is interested in reading long texts in IG, and that’s understandable. IG is primarily for photo sharing. That’s why I will just start my blog as it is. Without worrying about how my blog looks, or how the starts will look like. Straight and simple.
So, to make a long story short, this blog is travel scribbles, diary of my traveling with family, preparing for it, and discoveries along the way. Maybe even meeting with people, who approached me on IG (Yes, that also happens) and sharing their stories, stuff that I learned and would like to share with others.
You won’t see here beauty tips or tricks, but I have 0 problems to show you what is in my cosmetics bag that I’m taking with me. And if I’ll find something that helped me I will share it with you even if that will be a perfect face toner from Alaska (and yes, I’ll add a link to it, so you will be able to find it).
I know that main question which some people will ask me is – “why do you do this?”, and believe me, I am asking myself absolutely the same question every time I’m taking my phone or laptop to write a blog post. No matter where – IG, Tumbler, Facebook or here. I don’t have a marketing team, I’m the one-man orchestra, no-one will research instead of me and no-one will edit the pictures, or write posts.
But when I have doubts, I go to my IG page and read my bio- “I help people to get inspired by traveling, and travel with me online.” I know that first, that sounds cheesy, and yes, it made me cringe for a while.
Eventually, that changed, because I got many DM from people who physically can’t travel, who have their more important battles to win, and they find their escape in my pictures. I guess that because I’m almost none-existing in my photos, so you can imagine that you are the one who was there and did see those places.
On this note, let me finish this watery piece of content, and if you made it till the end, you are my hero. Hope to see you again soon, here, or on IG.
