Sasha Vasilyuk

Cultural journalist 

As a professional writer, I've used words to take me abroad, help my family, get into places I'm not supposed to be and meet kite-flying champions, corrupt mayors, cat trainers, police chiefs, sad clowns and skinny chefs.

After years of penning articles, I am now trying my hand at long form. The romantic travel memoir I am currently working on chronicles my transformative year of traveling alone around the world.
