Welcome to Bring Your Own Compass

Bring Your Own Compass

Hello and Welcome,

My name is Alana. I am an avid traveler and an even more avid travel-journaler. They say a picture is worth 1000 words, and it is, but I think that 1000 written words are much more, they are unfading memories that will stand the test of time.


Bring Your Own Compass (BYOC) is a space where I share my passion, stories, failures, tips & tricks as well as travel motivation for you to find your way through any destination.
