Whats our deal?

Hi, I’m Kayla, an Australian Travel Blogger. Welcome welcome welcome. I am so happy to have you here at Kelana by Kayla.  Firstly let me explain the meaning behind Kelana!

The word Kelana comes from Malay and means wanderer. Our whole brand culture has been designed around the feeling the word wanderer evokes. Soulful. Spirited. A yearning for being lost in our surroundings. Being free and wild like the ocean. And open and playful like a child. This space isn’t just about travelling it’s about taking the emotion that travel brings and replicating it through everyday life.

It’s about really exploring and immersing ourselves in culture, wandering aimlessly and meeting the locals. Taking things you learn and encounter from each community, religion and place and bringing them back to our own lives. Travel makes us better people. Travel brings happiness.
