Not one of those people who is consistently the life of the party, nor the kind of person who needs to be the centre of attention. I’m the person you’ll feel inspired around, with an infectious energy, but sometimes need long gaps between visits. And here’s an even bigger truth. I’m O.K with it.
Thing is; in a World of websites, social media, branding and voyeuristic tendencies I kinda enjoy moments of fading into the background. And for me, travel is exactly that. It is here where I feel most honest; truly free.
For the first 25 odd countries travelled I took in new cultures, saw beautiful sights, ticked off a silent bucket list and made memories. Experiences I am incredibly grateful for. But it was only once I travelled to Nepal that freedom seemed to click into place.
Nepal was a trip that I decided to visit, booked and left for, all in fewer than 5 days. Once returning there seemed a common reaction of people who learnt I’d travelled alone. Inspired? Shocked? Proud? Envious? Curious? What I did without so much as a second thought, for many others was unimaginable, much less achievable. My fearless attitude to this short life is perhaps not as common as first thought.
And so www.alexchasingdreams.com was born.
It is my dream that through these experiences as a fearless, female trotting the earth and exploring it’s majestic beauty, that others too will feel encouraged to explore the unknown. Weather as the life of the party or fading into the background like me;
Travel fearlessly, live freely.
I specialise in all things out of the ordinary!
