About Me

I’m Raya. Canadian born, US raised. I recently completed my Master of Arts in Hispanic Studies at the University of British Columbia, and have been living in beautiful Vancouver, BC since 2010.

I may not know exactly where my life is heading, but I know that travel will always be a part of it.

I am not always able to travel as often as I’d like, but, since I founded Finding Parayana in 2011 during my studies abroad in Ecuador, the goal of this blog has been to chronicle my adventures and experiences in new places as honestly and as faithfully as possible. Thank you for visiting!
