About Me

Enjoying life | Pamukkale, Turkey

Hello! My name is Alexis (or Lexi).

I was born in Ontario, Canada and raised in Michigan, USA. At the age of three, I moved to the U.S. with my family. Little did I know that this was to be the first of countless more adventures.

Fast forward 20 years, and here I am at the age of 23. I quit my job at a veterinary clinic to pursue my passions for teaching and traveling. I have traveled to 51 countries across 7 continents and I have circumnavigated the globe in a span of 4 months by ship. I am now living in Jakarta, Indonesia as an expat teaching English.

This is my journey exploring and falling in love with the world. Through this website, I want to share with you my personal adventures and travel tips as a backpacker. I hope to inspire you to embark on your own journey to discover the world and yourself. I hope you take that next trip, explore the world, and live the life you love.
