Welcome to Travel Lexx

Hello! My name is Alexei (or Lexx for short) and I am a 30-something Brit who loves travel, fitness and anything active! Travel has been a massive part of my life since 2011 and I have now visited 48 countries across 5 continents. I am always on the lookout for my next adventure, city break or hike. I also love talking about travel so feel free to get in touch!

I live and work full-time in London but that doesn’t stop me from exploring the world, keeping active AND bringing you the coolest adventures, best travel tips and destination guides through Travel Lexx. Hopefully, you will find something here to inspire you to discover new experiences, try some new food or just book that next trip!
