My name is Alexei Gaynanov and am an explorer, adventurer and fitness junkie from London, UK. I have a passion for travel and writing, so it made sense to combine the two – and so Travel Lexx was born! I have travelled to 44 countries across five continents and am always on the lookout for my next adventure. My aim is to inspire wanderlust and share my experiences to encourage others to see the world. All the while balancing a full time job and sporting commitments.
Travel Lexx is a blog focusing on exploring the world through active travel and adventure. From hiking and cycling to canoeing and white-water rafting, I challenge myself to discover places differently while also keeping fit.
Featuring off-the-beaten-path destinations and alternative ways to discover popular spots, its aim is to inform and inspire through high quality writing and photography. From inspirational lists and “how to” posts to top destination guides, Travel Lexx provides valuable content for its loyal and passionate audience.
Travel Lexx is targeted towards active/adventure travellers while also attracting a more mainstream audience interested in travel
As of 2017, visitors to Travel Lexx range broadly in age between 18 and 54. 55% of readers are men with interests including travel, sport, fitness and outdoor pursuits.
My audience is split between United States (33%) and United Kingdom (25.7%) with Australia, Canada, Germany, Thailand and Japan also providing reliable readership.
