I’m Alexa West. A best-selling travel author and female digital nomad traveling the world with my laptop, camera, and makeup bag.

Planes, trains, and buses – I never sacrifice beauty or fashion. My travels are a mix of budget and luxury. I fly Business Class without paying for it. I’m an expert packer & travel hacker.

let me plan your trip!

I’ll put together an itinerary that you’ll love – it’ll include places to stay, restaurants to stop at and even activities in the specific cities that you’ll be visiting!
