A Little Chitchat with Alex the Traveler

By Hendra @tukangminggat

Yo Reader,

Meet my second guest, a very interesting and nice traveler whom I met in Siem Reap Cambodia, Alex!! Alex is an easy going and funny girl. When I met her with her boyfriend, Martin, she can’t stop laughing and smiling each time we had a conversation. She’s kinda female traveler whom you’d like to travel with, I’m sure. Please, without further ado, let’s shout aloud for her

Thanks Alex for sharing the ideas.


How does traveling mean to you?

Traveling means the world to me, if I could spend my life traveling with no worries about finances I would. Think it’s so important for me, it helps me grow as a person.

Where in the world would you crave for traveling and why?

I’ve traveled through South East Asia, so the next destination for me would be South America, just love the idea of their culture, the salsa dancing the festivals.

Which one is the most memorable trip you experienced?

The most memorable trip was Cambodia, it is so rich with culture and history, was definitely life changing for me. (Me: Including meeting me and Omar was really memorable, right? :p)

If you are given a chance, give me two names you’d like to travel with? And why?

Bear Grylles and Captain Jack Sparrow, one (Bear Grylles) would help me out of the trouble caused by the other (Jack Sparrow).
