About Me

Hello! I'm Ilana. I grew up in Connecticut, USA, moved to Vermont to study classics and photography, then to Rhode Island where I coached gymnastics and spent lots of time organic gardening. I moved to southern Portugal in August, 2017 and I am loving it! The culture, people and food are all amazing. And I definitely like being able to explore this side of the Atlantic without the 7 hour flight! I am currently studying sustainability sciences online through UMass--which I thoroughly enjoy. I love to learn, explore and hike, enjoy nature, play games, garden, spend time with friends and family, meet new people, walk around new cities, and learn about other cultures!
