About Me Travel
Cinque Terre Blue Trail. pc: Windy McElroy

 Welcome to Lost & Abroad!

I’m Kalena, an island girl, nature lover and free spirit. I was born and raised in Hawaii and for the moment, I’m putting down roots in Los Angeles. Lost & Abroad is all about exploring the cultural and historical aspects of the places we travel, whether it be culinary, linguistic or anything in between. I also share some personal travel stories and snippets about the unique people and places that I’ve encountered.

You can read destination pieces (I love to write about Hawaii and Spain), articles on local traditions, listicles and personal ‘stories from the road’ to spark your curiosity, and ignite your inner wanderlust.

I love hearing from my readers!

Don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments, potential collaborations, or just to say hello.
