About Marika Devan

At 19, I was diagnosed with a degenerative neurological condition called Ataxia. I decided that after my diagnosis I wasn’t going to sulk around and let my condition get the best of me. No way! So combined with my passion for travel and my love for helping people Clumsy Girl Travels was born!
