I’m Alisa Ongbhaibulya (pronounced Ong-buy-bul-li-ya)! Yeah, it’s a mouthful. Here’s a little bit about me. I am a native, yes born and raised San Franciscan! I still reside in SF working a full-time office job.
It was in my early adolescent years that my uncle first introduced me to greatness of the outdoors. We would spend hours at the beach collecting rocks or camping in Yosemite. Fast forward to current day, it’s usually how I spend my weekends, either along California’s coast or mountains discovering spots I’ve never been to. These curiosities also led me to seek travel aboard learning, engaging, and devouring other cultures and landscapes.
Another passion that thrives me to connect with nature, is running. For the last 15 years I’ve been a long distance runner, and its what fuels me to connect with not only the outdoors, but myself. When I’m out running anywhere from six to 13 miles or more, I quickly learn how my body reacts to the environment. It’s a sensation felt from the ground underneath my feet that sends vibrations felt throughout every bone, tissue, and muscle that connects me to this earth.
Experiences are meant to be shared, so that’s what you’ll find in this blog, my experiences on the outdoors, travel, and running. I capture it all as an amateur photographer on my iPhone 6s, and occasionally my GoPro.
