Travelfish correspondent Ivana Lexa-French

Born in Aarhus Denmark, Ivana got her first passport at 6 months old and often traveled around Europe with her mother's theater company, while also making frequent trips to visit her family in the U.S. She attended an Arts high school in San Francisco and studied Social Anthropology in Scotland along with a hefty dose of ethnic dance. After completing her studies, she found herself with cold hands and itchy feet.

In 2009, Ivana moved to Southeast Asia to work as an English teacher and find new cultural windows in which to peep. She has been living in Vientiane since 2010, where she seasons her days with road trips, tasty food, Lao massage and scoping out the seedlings of Vientiane’s burgeoning arts scene. She currently teaches Geography and Environmental Management at a local international school.
