Welcome to my travel blog! My name is Mikala Whitaker, and I am a public relations professional in Washington, D.C. and a 2017 graduate from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with degrees in public relations, global studies and Spanish. MY passions include social change and global cultures.
My love for travel has only grown since studying in Mar del Plata, Argentina as an exchange student when I was 18. I decided to create this blog to document my travels, particularly as I traveled to Kansas City for the summer of 2015 and then traveled to Sevilla, Spain to study abroad in the fall of 2015. I’ve continued this blog now because I absolutely love writing, travel, and passing on any helpful knowledge that I acquire.
I named this blog The Unanchored Passenger because I feel that while traveling, one is simply a passenger, unanchored and drifting wherever so called to go. One cannot simply plan every single minute of travel, and, in fact, I think it’s best not to and to instead go wherever your two unanchored feet take you.
As you read this blog, I hope that you find the information helpful in your travels and inspiring for your journeys ahead.
