Hello All!


Wow – It gives me such pleasure and excitement to read all of the Yak posts on here already! One of my favorite parts about traveling is all of the wonderful people that I get to meet and incorporate into my life and I am REALLY looking forward to joining all of you wonderful men and women on this adventure together.  Excited to participate in this with you all!

My name is Ilana and I will be traveling from Santa Barbara, CA. I had the amazing opportunity to travel on a Dragons trip to India almost 15 years ago and somehow the universe has presented another opportunity for me to travel with them on another trip! Workwise I am in the real estate/property management industry and outside of work I spend as much time as I can being active – in both the physical and spiritual sense.  I love to spend time outside with my dog Brody, beach walks with my family, going to the gym and working on my newfound hobby of gardening.  I recently went on an incredible all women’s horseback trek in Argentina and am looking forward to my next journey over to Nepal.

Thank you all for participating on this trip because I am sure you each have so much knowledge, experience and unique insight to share! See you shortly!
