Our Story

Hello, my name is Polina and I share this Wandering Class with my boyfriend Corey. We met on OkCupid long distance.. (does that exist anymore?) and have been together for the last four years -  together but apart; I am in Chicago and he in Minneapolis. Our crave for travel brought us together and made us sort of crazy...in a good way! In the last full year of knowing each other we had traveled to Bahamas, Tampa, Vegas, Alaska, Hungary, Germany, Austria, Ghana, and the Netherlands. Mind you we work full time jobs so we really make traveling a top priority!

So join us while we continue to share our journey through stories, tips, videos, and photos.. We hope the Wandering Class is an element of you too.
