With the appearance of the Internet, literature has undergone some inevitable changes. Travel literature, which always had a borderland position between fictional and non-fictional, between literature and journalism, has been altered too. The aim of this research is to analyze a book by a Russian travel-blogger Daša Pahtusova "Možno vsё" and to form a detailed picture of how this contemporary travelogue embeds in the genre paradigm, which traditional genre characteristics it inherits and which innovatory elements it contains. Such categories as dichotomy of fictional and factual, the author’s self and metaphorization of the path are taken into consideration. Cultural background of XXI century authentic traveling in Russia, which inherits the beat-generation travel practices, is emphasized as well.
