Hi! I’m so glad you’re here. I’m Alice, and my purpose is to give you the tools, tricks, and tips you need to get started on your journey across the world!
You might be dreaming of going to Paris, Rio de Janiero, or Kyoto on your first trip but don’t know when you’ll find the time or how you’ll find the money.

- Climb Machu Picchu at sunrise (Peru)
- Sit under the crisp, perfectly-clear sky and see for miles around in the Uyuni Salt Flats (Bolivia)
- Admire the Tatio Geysers and Valley of the Moon in the Atacama Desert (Chile)
- Watch the sunrise at Angkor Wat (Cambodia)
- Snorkel with turtles in the national park waters of Phuket (Thailand)
- Drink watermelon juice straight from a drilled watermelon (Malaysia)
- Watch dancing lights on the tops of trees (Singapore)
- Appreciate the cherry blossom-filled stream of the Path of Philosophy (Japan)
- Feel tensions lasting from the 1950s at the DMZ (South Korea)
- Climb the Great Wall of China with no one around! (China)
