Alex is a smart traveller and a great role model for low-budget living. She has contingencies for everything from safety (should someone trying to break into her van) to lifting your mood and properly spicing your food.

When it comes to small van quarters, Alex believes that color is the key to lifting your mood. When she bought the van, it was all gray. After a bought of sickness that threw her into depression, she realized she needed to put as much color into her van as she could.

Alex warns that with a pop-top van, you need to make sure to always tuck in the edges of the pop-top after taking it in, to make sure it doesn’t mold (especially if you’re spending a lot of time in the Pacific Northwest like she is).

Alex is a big proponent of traveling alone. She believes it’s key to learn to be with all your different emotions without trying to numb yourself out with alcohol or other busy-work activities. And traveling solo gives you the gift of learning to be with yourself (of course, Alex has a lovely dog too, so you might thing of bringing a pet companion if your going on a super extended trip alone).
