Hello! My name's Maija and I come from Latvia, a tiny country in northeastern Europe where I study English at the University of Latvia in Riga. This semester, I have chosen to climb mountains. Literally and figuratively. I have gone to study abroad at the University of Alaska Southeast in Juneau, Alaska, U.S. This blog contains the trails I'm walking uphill, highs and lows, struggles and challenges, excitement and joy - physically and mentally.
