About Me

Hi, I’m Alex, and I’m a UK travel blogger who has a passion for travelling the world. I am here to show YOU all the unique and fun adventures the world has to offer you from beyond your desk…

The Story of Alex

I’ve been fortunate in my life that ever since 6 years old my parents have been able to take me all over Europe visiting various parts of the globe. As a result of this, I have developed a real passion for exploring the world. The shock of returning to Waterlooville after cruising the Mediterranean or training across Europe was always the same. I never wanted to come home, I wanted to experience different culture and continue to travel.

In 2020, I decided it was time to leave the family behind and start to travel the world on my own and break out from Europe for the first time. Unfortunately, Covid called and the whole world was put on lockdown. Covid really hurt me, my income was at 0 and all my travel funds went to the house.

I was back to Square 1.

But I wouldn’t let this stop me, I was determined to see life beyond Europe.

And, 3 years later that is exactly what I did, I built my funds back up and kissed good-bye to Europe and waved hello to Asia. What was meant to be a 3-month backpacking trip has blossomed into something that still continues to this day.

Solo travel, especially in Asia, is a bit of a culture shock on arrival. I remember being dropped off in the middle of Bangkok, bags equipped thinking jheez what the f*** is going on here. But you get used to it, and once you do your adventures can really start.

Travelling has allowed me to visit many countries and indulge in local culture, eat unique foods (including frogs and scorpions), make lifelong friends, but most importantly has given me the knowledge of all the best activities you can do in many countries (in the most cost-effective way).

So… How Can I Help You?

I blog predominantly about culture, travel routes, accommodation, and the MUST DO activities in each country.

If this sounds helpful then this website is for YOU.

What to expect from this website:

  • Tried and tested ideas on which activities are must dos in each destination.
  • Traditional and alternative travel routes if you’re looking to embrace your cultural side or save a few quid.
  • Where the best nightlife for each destination is held.
  • Where the best accommodation is for each destination.
  • Tips and tricks in order to meet people from new countries and explore life beyond your accommodation.
  • Reviews of equipment and accommodation so you can get the best of your travels.

Every part of my travel journey so far has been documented so you can trust the advice I provide is coming from the exact experience I had in each destination.

I am forever traveling.

Once I try something, if I feel it is of value, I will provide this information for anyone to see so they don’t make the same mistakes as me.

My experiences allow for us ALL to grow.
