Hello and thanks you for visiting alonanola.com – my travel blog.
I am Alona Bingert, aka AlonaNOLA. I started my blog to capture and share my travel experiences after my move to the Philippines. I wanted to make the most of the unique opportunity of living in the Southeast asia, an opportunity to explore different cities, place and countries. I love to eat and think that the best way to experience the local culture is through its cuisine. My travel style is to visit a mix of places – places the locals go as well as must see the tourist sites.
I was born and raised in Russia, went to college in the USA. I call New Orleans, Louisiana, USA my home.
This site contains information about my travels, helpful travel tips and descriptions of places I visited. I hope you find my experiences useful to you. Feel free to leave comment and sign up to get latest updates. Happy Travels!
