About the Writers

My name is Janelle, and I have a great goal to travel the world and learn something new with each destination. When I travel, I walk with an open mind and seek to see the reality in all things, including myself.

I come from a background of writing; a published poet, PR journalist for the U.S. Army, to a website copy-writer. I love to write and express myself through words and pictures. Other passions include running, hiking, coffee, meditation and adventure (not to be cliché). I married into a Macedonian family and engulfed myself into the culture, country and language. It’s a thing of beauty.

I love quotes. Quotes can be so encouraging, uplifting and inspiring. A COUPLE of my favorites are:

“All Glory comes from daring to begin.” – Eugene F. Ware 

“Fear cuts deeper than swords.” ― George R.R. Martin, (character: Syrio Forel) A Game of Thrones

I throughly believe it is important to not fear the unknown, but face it head on even when you are unsure or scared. That is bravery. What are your dreams?

108 Klicks Around the World is a reminder of some things I wish to achieve and travel experiences I want to remember, and share. It is a log, a diary, and my hope is that it will give you encouragement to follow your dreams too, whatever they may be.


My name is Kateryna, which means ‘honest’ and ‘pure’ in some Greek version, as far as I know, but I am Ukrainian 🙂 I was born in 1986, the year of the Tiger. This is very important in Ukraine, as we think the year of your birth can tell a lot about you. I know, it may be stupid, but… at least I’m a Tiger! I have two brothers, one a Dragon and the other a Mouse. That totally represents them.

Ukraine is a crazy country with constant instability, however, I do love it. I love to travel, and I am really big fan of trains. Once I wrote a novel in the train from one city to another. I feel magic inside the train. I like to write different stories and novels… I use to hide them in my desk. Maybe someday humanity will read about sarcastic geeky vampires, strong women, hard decisions…and more.

A couple fun facts about me: I am a cross-stitching’ maniac! I can create pictures and blouses; stitching and watching TV shows at the same time. Yep. Also, Once I traveled across all of Ukraine via hitchhiking – today, however I prefer to book cheap tickets and fly low-costs; take a bus or use a train 🙂

My favorite countries include – Ukraine, United Kingdom, and Austria. I have a lot of plans for my future trips and hope you will join me here!
