iWander was born when our CEO Yuliya Kutna quit her job to take a year off to travel the world.

Yuliya was born in Ukraine but grew up in a busy city of Chicago. Working since she was old enough to do so, putting in 50+ hours a week with barely any time to do anything else, let alone travel. Year after year nothing was changing and it was time to take charge of her life.

The goal was to see as much of our beautiful world as possible before returning back to reality and back to the corporate world.  Little did she know, she was never going to be the same, and what she considered the norm just a year ago, will never satisfy her again.

After returning back to the states and trying to readjust back to what people consider normal life here, she quickly realized that it wasn’t going to work for her ever again, but what she was planning wasn’t going to be easy. After spending months of planning, researching and putting details together, iWander Travels was finally born!
