Hi, I'm Alex! 

Provence, France
I love learning/attempting to speak
foreign languages, I laugh constantly, if I see a dog in the street I will always stop to pet it, and I love to travel!

Born in California and raised in Vancouver, Canada, I got bit by the travel bug when I was 15 after spending two weeks in El Salvador. It was then I realized just how incredible travel actually is, allowing you not only to see various amazing places but to have eye-opening experiences and meet new people, all while gaining a greater understanding and appreciation for foreign cultures and different ways of life.

Marrakech, Morocco

When I was 20 I got my first taste of long-term travel while studying abroad in France for a year, during which time I saw as much of Western Europe and Morocco as I could.

After finishing university I knew I wanted to travel some more. I worked for a while to save up as much money as I could, which allowed me to spend a year traveling, working and volunteering around Asia, Australia and Fiji. I briefly returned back home to Canada, only to decide I wanted to hit the road again, which is where I am now.

I'm currently living in the UK with this pretty awesome British guy I met back in Cambodia.

I keep this blog to be able to reflect on my experiences and share thoughts, photos and any tips I may pick up along the way.
