Melissa Burovac is a writer and photographer living on the Big Island of Hawaii. An avid outdoorswoman, she enjoys paddling – one-man, six-man and SUP – surfing, scuba diving, swimming, yoga and running. She is always ready for adventure and loves doing things that scare her a little. Melissa’s first book Wandering tells the hilarious tale of her solo travels from Mexico through Central America, Cuba, Australia, Cambodia and Thailand. As someone with no sense of direction, no ability to plan, and plenty of social anxiety, her experiences prove that anyone who wants to travel can! Sometimes you just need to pack a bag and get lost.
