I am Emese, the person behind this blog.  I grew up in a small town in Transylvania, and I live in sunny Arizona.  Between, I lived in a few other places, but traveled the world for the past twenty-five years and counting. 
 
I started Wanderer Writes to share some of my travel experiences, both new and old.  
 
I am a wanderer, a traveler who doesn't always need a plan to explore the world.  Well-traveled roads were not made for me, I try to find my own way, no matter where I go.  I prefer to stay in out-of-the-way places, and connect with the locals on some level.  
 I am a linguist, a translator, who appreciates the differences between languages and cultures. Learning at least a few words and phrases in the language of the people of the countries I visit is a priority for me.  Instead of studying the place before I set out to a new destination, I study the language people speak.  
I also try to find stories about the place or the people I visit.  Legends, fairy tales, historical facts, you name it.  
 For a very long time I traveled with kids, starting from babies, through toddlers and even teens. We used to travel as a family of five.  Now, with two kids grown, we are three. Dynamics are different, but it is still family travel. Recently, for the first time in over two decades, I traveled by myself again.  On rare occasion, my husband and I travel as a couple, without kids.
 
All these experiences will find their way into my writing here, at Wandererwrites.  Hope to inspire some of you to visit the places I have been to and connect with the locals.
