Hey - you've found me!
Hi! Go Find Alice started off as fun side project during my study abroad days in Europe. I was traveling weekly and wanted to document some of my adventures. However, it grew into something more and became a tool for me to share my joys and discoveries with the world.
A little about me: I had the joy and privilege of growing up in different cultures, moving and traveling with my entrepreneurial parents since birth. I have now made it to 47 of the 196 recognized countries around the globe. I have learned that home ultimately lies in the things you carry with you everywhere—and the thrill of traveling isn't in the moving around but in the moments in between—the moments that move you.
I've always been fascinated by the intricacies of culture and how/why/when they shape a society and those who live there. I love the feeling of being anonymous in a new place and the sovereign freedom that comes with being able to leave behind my beliefs and certainties.
Over the years, I've gathered some crazy stories -- almost falling off of the Great Wall of China, jumping off the most Southern tip of the United States (50ft down into the Pacific Ocean), and accidentally going deaf in my left ear for a couple of days on my way to Puerto Princesa, Philippines. I've also swam in the glacier waters of Iceland and melted away in the blazing Summer heat in the middle of the Gobi desert. I've witnessed beautiful sunsets over ancient Cambodian temples, Chilean vineyards, and atop the Yellow Mountain.
This blog is about travel, culture, food, art, photography, people but above all—identity. By sharing some of my thoughts and discoveries here, I hope to challenge some of the ways certain cultures are viewed and provide some perspectives in a different light.
I love photography and journaling because they've become my passport to meeting others, learning, and experiencing new cultures. I use storytelling as an instrument to create awareness and understanding across different cultures, communities, and countries; a tool to make sense of our commonalities in the world we share in hopes that my stories will inspire others to go on adventures of their own. It's a miracle that we have an opportunity to share what excites us, and that is what I aim to do here. ♥
