My name is Alex Lavorato, and I live in Charlotte, NC. I discovered my love for travel and photography when I studied abroad in Florence, Italy in 2009, and have been traveling ever since.
My favorite travel companion is my husband, Jordan, and I'm sure you will see him featured throughout here quite often. We have gone to Italy, France, Morocco, Spain, Budapest, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam. We are currently planning our next trip for Peru and Bolivia!
Our secret to traveling is points, points, points. While this blog will not focus on that, I do feel obligated to mention it, as we would not have been able to travel without them! My personal favorites: Chase Freedom and the Chase Sapphire Preferred (side note: if you use those links, I will get points, but so will you! So use them!). Opening up cards during sign-up bonus time has allowed us to literally never pay for international flights, so we have been able to see so much of the world, which we are so thankful for.
I have been honing my love of photography every time we travel, and I even recently started taking classes. It's so much fun for me to watch my photography evolve as I look back on my older photos from our trips back in 2015 or 2016, and then those from our honeymoon in January, 2018. I hope you enjoy going on this journey with me!
