Did you go on tour with Alana?
Alana Radford Guide at Free & Easy Traveler
Well hello there! Ever heard the phrase "work to travel"? Well that's pretty much been my motto for the last couple years. During my first trip to the Philippines I was infected big time by the travel bug and no amount of "quarantine time" back in Canada could counteract it. I finished school and started to work as an ultrasound tech but the second I had enough saved I was off again, this time to Europe and the rest of S.E. Asia. More work followed by a jaunt to Central America and then as just as soon as I could make it happen, Africa and India. Finally I realized that my passion for backpacking was much more than a hobby and I jumped at the chance to embrace travel full time with FNEZ . Now my days are spent doing what makes me the very happiest - logging beach time with new friends, knocking new and awesome things off the ol' bucket list and experiencing world culture up close and personal! Wanna know more? Let's break it down teen beat quiz style: I'm a dance party enthusiast with a penchant for smiling and an eternal love for white sand beaches. Vancouverite, somewhat bohemian in attitude who revels in snapping sneaky candid pictures of friends, hearing new indiepop remixes and binge reading adventure novels. My favourite nights involve beach bonfire guitar jams, long talks, sandwich makers and watching the sun rise. Sadly, it's been proven time and again that I cannot throw a frisbee to save my life, yet I do enjoy a good vinyasa and will always join you for a viewpoint hike or five. I'm fond of pineapple, green curry, midnight popcorn snacking, sambuca shots and social gin drinks. I get a kick out of boating (boats in general), entrenching my toes in the place where the ocean meets the hot sand and flipping the flippy cup on the first try. Currently slowly learning to play guitar but in the meantime I've mastered some pretty mean handclapping skillz. Whether you're travel addicted too or brand new to the game you'll absolutely love adventuring abroad Free and Easy style (trust me, I'm excited for you)! See you beachside in S.E Asia this summer where we will embrace all sorts of weirdness, make legendary memories/inside jokes and start those dance parties errrywhere!
