About me:

Hey there! I’m Simona, founder of the Faraway Life travel & lifestyle blog. I was born and raised in Bucharest, Romania. Over the last years, I lived in Berlin, Germany and recently I just started a new chapter of my life in San Francisco, California.

I created the site as a way to document my adventures and encourage others to do the same. Most of my articles are focused on travel, food, and stories from all over the world. I love writing travel guides, documenting a new place through food and culture, and capturing its identity and uniqueness through my photo diaries.
