Welcome to Roam and Thrive. 

I’m Alex, originally from London, UK but based in Santiago, Chile. I live and breathe travel, fitness, food and wellness and my passion is to share my travels, adventures and inspire you to do the same.

I left the UK back in 2012 and I haven’t been happier. I’ve always thought there was more to life than a 9-5 with the same routine, in the same office, in the same city day after day. I began exploring what the world had to offer and I’ve never looked back. The most important thing I’ve learned is that you have to follow your dreams.

Roam and Thrive is my collection of the gems of this world, my tips on how to travel well and stay optimally healthy at the same time. This blog is for people who travel often but don’t want to leave their healthy eating or fitness routines behind. I’ve found my fair share of difficulties staying healthy and fit on the road and I’m here to offer my experiences for you to live your best life.

I’ve travelled to many countries across Asia, the Americas, Europe and Africa, each place brimming with magic, charm, culture and delicious food. I’m an amateur chef who loves experimenting with new flavours and simple dishes on the road and I’m a fitness junkie. Sunset workout on a beach in Bali followed by a delicious, local meal? My idea of heaven. 

Whether you’re planning your first trip, already on the road or a seasoned traveller looking for inspiration, this blog is for you. 

Join me on my adventures round the world and I can’t wait to connect with you.

Lots of love!
