The Unexpected Expedition


One Girl, Two Continents and Too many stereotypes. Let’s break them together!


Alena in her natural habitat.

Alena alias Ala, Born Czech, brought up by my parents but educated by life. In few words I am: 101% Optimist, Chocolate and travel addict, Freedom fighter, Dream follower, Green Tea Lover, Hitchhiker, Spontaneous, Environmentalist and Full of energy. I have spent the last 6+ years wandering around the world continents - working, traveling, studying, building libraries, hitchhiking but mainly learning about myself and life through people’s stories. What I learnt is that we cannot generalize. Everyone is an original and beautiful human being with a different life story. And I would like to hear and learn from as many such stories as possible.
