In mid 2011, Mel, an experienced British traveler, and Aleko, a Las Vegas native got married at a tiny golf course wedding with less than 30 people attending; both holding much anticipation for the future.
The couple had sold almost all of their worldly possessions, abandoned their mundane 9-5 jobs, and left the U.S. with one way tickets to Thailand and India not knowing what to expect.
What was foreseen as being a six month jaunt in two beautiful countries transformed into a six year sweeping adventure across most of Asia which included new friends, wonderful food, amazing cultures, and the adventure of a lifetime.
Seren grew up in the Welsh countryside, an outstandingly beautiful place, but had always craved excitement and adventure. A year of teaching in China turned into nearly 4, where she was lucky enough to travel to most countries in Asia. A trip to The U.S. and Guatemala last summer ( where she completed her Yoga Teacher Training) concreted the feeling that city life in China wasn’t for her anymore, despite the great holidays and it’s location as a spring board to many amazing countries. After another career and location U-turn she currently finds herself in the beautiful Gran Canaria, working as a yoga instructor. Gran Canaria is home to beautiful mountains, the bluest ocean you’ve ever seen, Europe’s last “jungle” and vibrant food an culture.
