Travel Withdrawals

The past few days, I have been reminded through social media of memories that took place at this exact same time: five years ago, I was in San Francisco for the first time.
Four years ago, I was finishing up my internship abroad in London.
Three years ago, I was exploring Boston with my friend, Brad.
Two years ago, I was a couple of days out from my family trip to LA.
Last year, I was preparing for my trip to Cabarete in the Dominican Republic with my friend, Ilse.
In a couple of weeks, I would have been on my way to London again on a two-week trip with the plan of country-hopping in Europe. As if I don’t already spend all of my free time thinking about traveling, these memories have hit me harder than I could have imagined. Continue reading “Travel Withdrawals”

Lex at Home

Lex at Home

If you read my latest post about my return to YouTube, you will have heard in my YouTube video that I am having to pivot my content while we adjust to life without travel temporarily. Though it is 100% my priority to bring you as much travel-related content as I can, this means introducing more lifestyle content. In my video, I mentioned how I moved house about a month ago and this new home has already provided me with so many ideas for the near future. With that said, I have decided to create an entirely separate Instagram account to share home-related content called “Lex at Home.”

Quarantine Comeback

I just wanted to provide a short update that I am really excited about. This past Thursday, I finally uploaded a video on my YouTube channel for the first time in three months!! I am so, so excited to be returning to posting videos regularly and even posting on here more frequently than before. I have been approaching my content creation schedule a lot differently this time around and this time off has been nothing short of helpful for me to get back into a creative groove.

You should definitely watch the video to find out what exactly you can expect to see on this blog and my channel moving forward as we continue to navigate quarantine and, as everyone calls it, our “new normal” for the foreseeable future. While you’re on my channel, go ahead and subscribe to start seeing my weekly videos–you can even watch all the travel content I created pre-COVID. You don’t need a YouTube channel to subscribe, by the way!! Anyway, I just wanted to let y’all know in so many words that: I’m back.

Time Travel, Space Travel, ..TV Travel?

As the light in my dreams of traveling anywhere any time soon gets dimmer and dimmer, I have found myself traveling through TV. Of course I live for the travel shows that intentionally transport us to far away lands with all the tourist attractions and food-indulgence galore, but I’m talking internationally-based TV shows. If you are someone like me whose interest in travel extends beyond just seeing the sights and centers on hearing the beauty and flow of other languages, then keep on reading. I have some favorite shows I have been obsessed with that I would like to recommend (in no particular order): Continue reading “Time Travel, Space Travel, ..TV Travel?”
