89-year-old Elena Mikhailovna, also known as “Baba Lena,” is a badass grandma who has been travelling the world for the last six years all by herself. When Lena was young, she didn’t have much time and money to travel, so, having visited Prague, Poland and East Germany in the 1970s, she stopped travelling abroad. But 6 years ago, at the age of 83, Lena decided that it was finally the time to see more of the world.

“It’s easy to make friends when I’m away, because a lot of people wonder at my age and ability to travel and they want to help. They show me everything everywhere, help to see the sea, visiting restaurants,” she told The Independent. So far Lena has been to Turkey, the Czech Republic, Germany, Vietnam, Israel and Thailand. Lena saves her pensions, sells flowers, and gets help from her family so she can travel. She’s planning to go to Dominican Republic for her 90th birthday, so keep up with her Instagram for more!
