Elena Georgalla marks her journeys with all sorts of encounters. Here she shares a few with us.

In my travels I have encountered people, cities, mountains, seas, buildings, trees and rivers, music and food, joy and disappointment.  Yet, this is a living world we share, not just with each other, but with creatures of all sorts.
