About Me


My name is Cassandra Kamery and I am the blogger behind Appena Travel. I live in the inspiring city of Buffalo, New York with my husband, Chris. Travel has been an innate part of my being for as long as I can remember. When little, I dreamed of the chance to visit faraway places, and nothing excites my soul more than dreaming, planning, and executing travel plans. My hope is to inspire others to make authentic connections with the world and the people in it through travel on both a micro and macro level.

I love to intertwine my background in Psychology when I travel as well. You can head over to this post to read some other random facts about me.
