Passenger Ruxandra Manea
Meet Passenger Ruxandra Manea.
”I’m a wife, a mother, and aspiring writer, living in Bucharest, Romania. Ever since I was little, I loved exploring new places, in real life and in books. Being interested in history went hand in hand with traveling and I love exploring historical sites, thinking about how people lived their lives. I grew up with my dad’s stories and pictures of mountain climbing adventures (my parents met on a mountain trip) and I think this inspired the love for traveling in me.
“My biggest hope is that I may inspire the same love for traveling in my son, when he grows up.”
