US- NATIONAL PARKSThough Montezuma never set foot in the land that is now Arizona, this site is named after him.
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.
