Hello there! Welcome to Life Well Wandered: a mindful travel and mental wellness blog.
In this blog, you’ll find the best tips and tricks for making the most of your travels, travel tips for Europe and North America and the intersection between travel, mental health, and life. I write about the wonderful cities I’ve visited and lived in, living (and traveling) with anxiety, and explorations around my home in New York City.
I believe in mindful travel—a style of travel that focuses on being in the moment, seeking out local places, and truly getting an insider’s look of a location.
I also believe in being open about my mental health, the struggles I’ve gone through, and how travel has saved me.
I hope you explore this site and find something that inspires you.

I’m Alex, the girl behind Life Well Wandered. All those adjectives above either describe me now or have described me in the recent past.
I’m still trying to figure out who I am in this world, but one thing is for sure: travel has impacted my life in ways I can’t even begin to describe.
