About @rayawashere

Travel and lifestyle vlogger Raya Encheva lived a fully nomadic life for four years with only carry-on belongings. The Bulgarian-born adventurer has been documenting her way across the globe, amassing unforgettable experiences and an Instagram following of 195K+. Raya’s candor about adventure’s imperfections is met with personal insecurity reflections, self growth blogs and new empowerment series I Love My Body. Launching her on travel-influenced jewelry line, Raya’s adventures have taken a more domestic spin in 2018, planting roots in LA with her travel vlogger bae Louis Cole.
